Standard on every 2019 Volvo S90 Safety Sense, which is really a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items.

Cabin storage is good but not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Volvo S90 has a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
