Volvo S90 teaser

The upcoming Volvo S90 will officially make its world debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January. Two teaser images of the car has been released to accompany the Swedish carmaker’s announced collaboration with Microsoft recently.

For the first image, we get a good look at the car’s profile, which is pretty much identical to that of the 1:43 scale model that was leaked previously. Obvious design traits include Volvo’s arresting “Thor’s Hammer” LED daytime running lights and two-section taillights. We also spot the same chrome elements around the window frames as well.

Moving on to the second teaser image, we are shown the rear of the S90, specifically the area near the taillights. Sporting a B-shaped design, they appear to be pretty substantial in size with the upper portion extending towards the central “Volvo” logo. The bootlid itself appears to be heavily shaped, with what appears to be a large crease found below the carmaker’s branding.

All these design cues revealed via the teasers appears to tally up with those on the leaked scaled models from before. If this trend continues, expect the full-sized wagon version of the S90, the V90, to heavily mirror the styling of its own scale model that was also leaked.

The Volvo S90 is expected to ride on the SPA platform that also underpins the XC90 SUV. Powertrains options on the flagship sedan should mirror its crossover sibling’s turbocharged 2.0 litre Drive-E four-cylinder engines in T5 and T6 petrol and 407 hp/640 Nm T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid setups alongside D4 and D5 diesel options.
