In 2020, the Volvo S90 and S60 both get some notable updates. For the latest model year, the base engine has been eliminated from the powertrain lineup for the S90. More features are standard this year, including the addition of leather seats across the board, rear cross-traffic alert, and front parking sensors. A new trim called the R-Design joins the lineup as well. The latest S90 is part of the second generation that debuted in 2017. For the 2020 model year, the S60 comes standard with a virtual instrument panel on all trim levels. More safety technology comes standard, including blind-spot monitoring with automatic collision avoidance. The S60 also has a model called the R-Design. This year, the S60 R-Design gets more standard features, including interior lighting, a custom dashboard, and multi-zone climate control. Both Volvo sedans stand out for their exceptionally comfortable seats, power, upscale interior amenities, and an array of standard safety and convenience features. The S90's seats are ranked as “Best-in-Class” for comfort.


Despite their luxurious exteriors, both the 2020 S90 and 2020 S60 have strong performance credentials. The S90 is available with three engines for the latest model year, including one hybrid engine. The base gasoline engine has a displacement of 2.0L with four cylinders and turbo power for quick acceleration. This engine generates up to 250 HP. The second gasoline engine, standard on the higher trim levels, is also a 2.0L with four cylinders. This engine, however, has a more elevated power output of 316 HP because it is supercharged. The hybrid engine is dual gasoline and electric engine with turbo and supercharged capabilities. The gasoline engine is a 2.0L four-cylinder paired with an electric motor that produces 87 HP. Together, the engine and motor generate 400 HP. All-wheel drive and front-wheel drive are the available drivetrains. The S60 has two engines. One is a 2.0L four-cylinder that produces 250 HP. The other is a 2.0L with four cylinders that produces 400 HP.


The S90 features LED lighting on all trim levels for an elegant look and maximal visibility. Signature “Thor's hammer” headlights give the S90 a distinctive appearance on the road. Dual integrated tailpipes, a custom glossy black trim, and exclusive wheels are highlights of the R-Design. The S60 has small, but meaningful touches, including illuminated door, handles heated washer nozzles, and color-coordinated rearview mirror caps. Custom trim-specific tailpipes, which are either dual-integrated or rounded, are standard or available.
