When it comes to the luxury vehicle market, ostentatious is not hard to find. So many so-called luxury cars are long on style but dreadfully short on substance. A car is supposed to go from point A to point B and a luxury car is supposed to get you there stylishly, comfortably and safely. The 2018 Volvo S90 is the epitome of Swedish design, understated yet powerful. In a few key categories, the Volvo S90 easily demonstrates its qualities against another luxury car, the Audi A6. Consider these points when comparing the two vehicles.

Specs at a Glance

The S90 offers 360º blind spot monitoring. Front and rear collision safety avoidance technology is standard on all trims, as is advanced adaptive cruise control. Head restraints, an energy absorbing interior and crash safety headrests are standard on all trims. An inflatable curtain, the most advanced airbags on the road, advanced seat-belts and child safety locks are standard on all trims.

The Volvo S90 is richly equipped with three engines, including a two-liter turbo four-cylinder that produces 252hp, a two-liter four-cylinder turbo and supercharged engine that produces 316hp, or a plug-in hybrid that produces a fiery 400 horsepower. The Volvo S90 plug-in-hybrid has 400 horsepower and will go from 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, It will go from zero to sixty in 4.5 seconds, faster than the 3.0L V6 Audi A6 in 5.2 seconds. The Volvo S90 offers all the power you could need with a comfortable, graceful ride quality that smooths over bumps while handling like a dream. Audi touts its sport-tuned suspension and motorsports heritage, but neither of these cars will be racing on a track.
