Like the redesigned XC90 SUV that debuted last year, the S90 is another piece in Volvo's strategy to remake the brand as a distinctly Swedish luxury offering. Though the S90 is Volvo's flagship sedan, it's closer in size to mid-size luxury cars like the Audi A6 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class than to full-size German flagships like the Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

The S90 starts at $47,945, including a $995 destination charge, for the base T5 Momentum trim with front-wheel drive and a 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine. We tested an uplevel T6 Inscription model with all-wheel drive and Volvo's supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine, which is rated at 316 hp. The T6 Inscription starts at $56,445 including destination, but a healthy list of optional features raised our as-tested price to $66,365.
