The Good Beautiful styling, ride quality and interior appointments make for an outstanding car.
The Bad Straight-line performance feels a bit tepid.
The Bottom Line A smart and refined driving experience.
After decades of staid, respectable cars that looked fine and drove well, Volvo shocked the world with the reinvented XC90. That SUV, with its refined looks and polished character, nabbed our inaugural Shift Car of the Year award -- and plenty of other trophies, too.
Now, here's the follow-up. This is the Volvo S90, and you can think of it as a shorter XC90. But, with a starting price of $47,000, it's also a fair bit more attainable. It's also lovely, it's certainly comfortable and, overall, it's nothing short of superb.
A cynic might call the S90 bland in appearance. They wouldn't be wrong, but the words "clean" and "sophisticated" feel far more apt to me. The S90 features the next evolution of the Scandinavian lines that debuted on the. They flow from front to rear without raising much of a fuss along the way.
