2017 Volvo S90: Knocks Down 5-Series, E-Class On Value

By  | 

As an attractive alternative to the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Volvo S90 sedan is going to land in dealerships at summertime for a base price of $47,945 inclusive of destination charges.

For that amount buyers will get the T5 Momentum model that is powered by a 2.0L T5 turbo-four good for 250hp.

If customers want a little more juice out of their new Volvo they can fork out $53,945 for the T6 AWD Momentum model that pushes out 316hp from a T6 2.0L four-pot that’s both turbocharged and supercharged.

Pricing for the T8 PHEV model which doesn’t arrive as soon as the lower trim ones has not yet been disclosed by the Swedish automaker.

To highlight the value of the revived S90 sedan, the current base model E-Class worth 195hp starts at about $53,000 while the entry-level 5-Series that produces 240hp goes for $50,000.

While the 5-Series is more affordable than the E-Class, it doesn’t come with semi-autonomous driving technology which the S90 also packs. Apart from that the Volvo sedan is sold standard with a leather-wrapped cabin and unique Thor’s Hammer headlamps to distinguish itself in a crowded premium sedan market.
