CARS.COM — There aren’t a lot of cars where its headlights really make the look, but the new 2017 Volvo S90 sedan gains distinctiveness from its T-shaped accent lights, which Volvo refers to as Thor’s Hammer. They border a wide waterfall grille with a large Volvo badge in the middle, and all of the elements combine to produce a powerful, stern-looking luxury sedan.

Volvo bills the S90 as a flagship car, but it’s not as big as traditional flagships from the competition. The S90’s overall length is closer to that of the BMW 5 Series, but it’s about as wide as a BMW 7 Series and its roofline is lower than both. Volvo bills it as a four-door coupe — a counterintuitive term that luxury brands have become obsessed with in recent years — and it looks the part with a low, long hood and short trunk lid.
