If you are in the market for a midsized luxury sedan you might want to check out the 2017 Volvo S90. It’s an alternative to the Audi A6 and BMW 5-Series and it’s a prettier and cheaper alternative.

There is a lot to like about the 2017 Volvo S90, it offers styling that is crisp, it comes packed with plenty of next generation technology and it offers plenty of safety measures.

On the downside is the fact that this isn’t the lightest of vehicle and the base trim front-wheel drive, the T5 Momentum is around 200 pounds heavier than the BMW 5-Series or the Audi A6. However the vehicle is pretty light on its wheels and turns are fast and cornering is flat. The engine is the 2 litre four-cylinder and this is powerful and superb in Dynamic mode.

The 2017 Volvo S90 comes with a great fresh design with plenty of straight lines and curves that are simple and in fact it offers up one of the cleanest designs found. It is great value for money among midsized luxury sedans, at $46, 950 and this means it is around $4,500 cheaper than the Mercedes or BMW equivalent.

The Volvo S90 is offered with plenty of premium features as standard. They have the Sensus infotainment along with navigation system and the nine inch vertical touchscreen. It packs in plenty of active safety systems and these include automatic braking, lane keep assistance and semi-autonomous driving.

If you were to go for the BMW 5-Series such tech as keyless entry, engine stop and start and push-button start all come in as optional costing $650, yet on the Volvo S90 they are come fitted as standard.

So you really do get good value for money with the Volvo S90 at the side of the BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes.
