In order to make the luxury sedan segment even more competitive, the Swedish automaker has introduced its flagship sedan in the country. Yes, the Volvo S90 has been launched in India at a price tag of INR 53.5 lakh. Though the rest of the automakers have already established their roots in the respective segment, the new S90 is a bit late to start from naught. But, as the car is refined and poised, the automaker will not struggle much to establish a decent sales rate in India.

The all-new S90 is based on the company’s new SPA platform that is also shared by Volvo XC90 SUV. Replacing the S80, the S90 has a longer wheelbase and the overall length measures 4963 mm. The Thor’s Hammer LED DRLs are complemented by massive grille at the front and the appropriate usage of chrome grants the sedan a premium feel. The sharp lines on the body extend to the side while the C-shaped rear tail lamps merge into the well-sculpted boot-lid, accentuating the overall design in a perfect manner. The spacious cabin features appropriate usage of beige, brown and wood to carry ahead the premiumness of the exterior inside as well.
