Goes in a different direction to the German alternatives, with convincing success.
 

For: 

Stylish Swedish looks, tech, unashamed aura of calm and serenity

Against: 

Not cheap, keen drivers will want more

Overview

What is it?

It’s Sweden’s latest take on the German executive saloon. After the ageing, slightly anonymous S80 comes the super slick S90. It takes the traditional three-box Volvo shape and brings it bang up to date with XC90 styling cues. It’s bold, but in a class dominated by sense and rationality, we like that a lot.
