The long-awaited Volvo S90 has been revealed, promising to shake up the premium saloon segment.

The new flagship boasts a multitude of new technologies, ranging from the latest safety equipment to cloud-based apps and services, as well as a T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Other technological features include an advanced drive feature  Pilot Assist. The system gives subtle steering inputs to ensure the car is properly aligned within lane markings up to motorway speeds, without needing to follow another car.

With regards to safety, the S90 is equipped with City Safety, a large animal detection system. It is capable of detecting creatures such as horses in both the day and night time.

Hakan Samuelsson, President & CEO, Volvo Car Group, said: "With the launch of the XC90, we made a clear statement of intent. We are now clearly and firmly in the game. With $11 USD billion of investment over the past five years, we have not only reimagined what Volvo Cars can be  we are now delivering on our promise of a resurgent and relevant Volvo Cars brand."

Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President of Design at Volvo Car Group, added: "Our idea was to bring something entirely new to this rather conservative segment and deliver a visual expression that exudes leadership and confidence on the exterior. On the inside, we have taken the S90 to the next level, delivering a high-end luxury experience that promises comfort and control."
