Volvo India will launch the new S90 in late 2016 in the country. The Swedish car maker has already revealed the new S90 in December 2015, which is based around the same SPA (Scalable Platform Architecture) platform for a stiffer and sturdy chassis setup. The same chassis also underpins the new XC90. The forthcoming luxury sedan will lock its horns with the likes of Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Jaguar XF.

Under the bonnet, the powertrain options will remain the same as that of the Volvo XC90. It will come powered by both petrol and diesel units. The four-pot motors and a T8 hybrid variant will also make to the upcoming sedan. The turbo diesel engine will produce 192PS of power and 400 Nm of torque, while the top-end variant will make around 228PS and 470 Nm of power and torque, respectively. The petrol mill, on the other hand, will develop around 258PS of maximum power and 350Nm of peak torque, and the T8 Hybrid model is said to develop around 400PS of power and 640Nm of torque.

The new S90 will receive the new Thor’s Hammer-shaped headlamps with LED daytime running lights (seen in the new Volvo XC90). Silver accents around the fog lamp cluster, a rectangular front grille with chrome finish, bigger front bumper and air intakes with chrome surrounds will surely make the new sedan look attractive.

The manufacturer has also equipped the car with a host of safety equipment like Auto Brakes at Intersection and Run Off Road Protection, automatic emergency braking, a camera with sensors, cruise control, lane assist and much more.
