Volvo Car Malaysia has unveiled the updated models for the Volvo S90 range earlier today which now comes with new exterior and interior finishing. Together with the car's already advanced safety features and tech, the facelifted Volvo S90 Recharge T8 pushes its selling points of luxury, safety, and sustainability even further.
Volvo's design language of minimalist design and stylistic cues adds more premium-ness to the S90 Recharge T8 and this is further enhanced with the additions of a redesigned front bumper, "Thor Hammer" LED headlight, vertical chrome grille, updated tail lamps inspired by the Volvo S60 T8 R-Design, plus many more.
That minimalist yet premium theme is also integrated within the cabin from its perforated seats, sunroof, and vertical air blades on the sides of the Sensus user interface just to name a few. Speaking of the Sensus user interface, the nine-inch portrait touch screen also offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as an entire menu of safety features and in-car entertainment.
If it's an audio experience you're looking for, the new S90 now comes with the upgraded Bowers & Wilkin's sound system which consists of 19 speakers with Nautilus™ speaker technology for the ultimate in-car audio bliss. Different 'Room Modes' are also available to fully immerse all occupants into a very interesting experience on the go.
Going straight to power, its 2.0-litre T8 Twin Engine Drive-E powertrain produces a total of 407hp and 640Nm of torque thanks to the petrol-powered four-banger and electric motor. The T5 on the other hand produces 254hp and 350Nm as it doesn't come with the turbocharger/supercharger combo like the T8.
Safety comes in the form of the Volvo’s Intellisafe system which consists of:
- Blind Spot Information Systems (BLIS)
- City Safety
- Cross Traffic Alert
- Front and Rear Warning and Mitigation Support
- Lane Keeping Aid
- Pilot Assist + many more
