Interior Design:

The Volvo S90 interiors is luxury redefined. Attention to detail and exquisite materials has taken a new paradigm when it comes to the S90 interiors. From the finely crafted leather dashboard to the use of natural-finish walnut wood encased in a single piece chrome element that adorns the front console, everything about the interiors will make you feel special. The seat has soft perforated Nappa leather that enables heating and cooling through the seats. Both front seats have lumbar support and power adjustable seat extenders provide supreme comfort. The NVH levels shuts outside noise and cocoons the customers in serenity while the cabin comes with 4-Zone air-conditioning. The rear wheels feature independent air-suspension for going that extra mile in providing supreme comfort and ride.

The S90 is equipped with a sub 2L diesel that delivers 190 horsepower and 400 Nm Torque.
