Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, although SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide selection of options, to help you pick and choose which ones are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs may be all the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Volvo S90. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 Volvo S90 is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for a while, you may get the 2020 Volvo S90 with a four-cylinder engine or even a better V6, or you will get the miserly 2020 Volvo S90 Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Volvo S90 is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Volvo S90 also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Volvo S90 with a bit of extra personality.

The 2020 Volvo S90 is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 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 next 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. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.

As sedans go, the 2020 Volvo S90 stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to match longer items. You will find enough cabin storage options to produce many people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but has 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 2020 Volvo S90 features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
