Will a German luxury sedan buyer look towards Sweden?
Long, low and sleek, this new Volvo breaks new ground in Swedish design and its power delivery, plus it has a cabin to persuade BMW and Mercedes drivers to look in its direction. Yes, today it is all about looks, inside and outside and this Volvo S90 delivers in both areas.
In this tough segment, all brands can deliver in safety features, drive dynamics and driver feel. One car might be slightly ahead in one area, but the rival might be ahead in another. Still all the relevant boxes get ticked with the new Mercedes E200 at RM348,888.00, the just launched BMW 530i M Sport at RM398,800.00 and the Audi A6 3.0TFSI at RM487,900.00.
All the above three cars have great safety features, powerful engines, great dynamics and very spacious comfortable interiors. So what will set this new Volvo S90 T5 apart from the competition at its selling price of RM388,888.00?
If Europeans buyers can fall in love with this S90, it cannot be all that bad. If your car is an extension of your business, then maybe it is time to conducted ‘good business’ and let your you business associates value your work and not the car you arrive in for the golf game. When was the last time you drove your German sedan around a bend at break-neck speed and when was the last time you actually did quick side to side steering maneuvers with your German sedan? Not at all perhaps and you did not even give this Volvo S90 a test drive to dismiss it.
So, things need to change and the segment needs a shakeup. Now here comes the Volvo S90. A game-changer that wants to break up the herd. Yes, it has class best safety features and it drives really well whilst being very comfortable. Strong bold lines, Hammer inspired headlamps and an interior that is hard…very hard to fault even the very slightest, this Volvo S90 wants to break up the herd. This Volvo S90 wants to start chaos. This Volvo S90 wants to pull away BMW and Mercedes owners to try some Swedish meatballs. This Volvo S90 no longer wants to be a third wheel in the executive car segment. They want to be a segment contender and after a weekend with the S90 T5 we think the herd will start thinning as more people see, feel and drive this S90. Well done Volvo for starting a new fad in luxury car buying.
