    New Volvo S90 photo leaked before official

    Volvo has revealed the all-new S90 premium sedan, along with some of the specs of the range, including the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid variant.

    As expected, Volvo’s new entry in the premium segment is based on the Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA), first used by the XC90, featuring the same powertrains with the large SUV such as the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid.

    The Volvo S90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid will offer 394hp from combining a four-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged 318hp 2-litre petrol engine with an 80hp electric motor and a 46hp crankshaft-mounted starter generator, all of them paired with a eight-speed automatic gearbox. Power goes to all four wheels.

    So much money they can't afford to develop a six or eight cylinder engine for this flagship!

    Man, I am digging the new Volvo interiors - clean, modern, yet still very luxurious.

    Three things concern me:
    1) Chinese manufacturing + parts
    2) The complexity of a SC + Turbo + Hybrid
    3) I would like a bigger engine option. The FI 4-banger is probably adequate (especially with the hybrid boost), but it doesn't really get me excited either. Makes me kind of wish they had updated their I6 and thrown the SC + Turbo on it as a HiPo option.

    Fantastic. It's a FWD based vehicle and look at those proportions, very nice. Are you seeing that, Lincoln?

    It looks great! It's just too bad that Volvo is owned by the Chinese.

    Yes. Volvo has done a great job with that. They managed to hide the ugly proportions the fwd based cars have.

    First reaction..... Boy, that front end looks a lot like something from the Blue Ovals Luxury division....

    Looks really good. I wonder if stretching out the front wheels for more of a traditional RWD look hurts packaging efficiency or if they are using the extra understood space. Is the engine set back for better balance? Are they using the space for hybrid gear? Or is it just useless space?

    I like that they've differentiated themselves from a design and engineering standpoint -- a four cylinder only and hybrid approach makes a statement and it may be one that appeals to a surprisingly large number of buyers.

    I like that it still has a bit of a proper trunk, instead of a hatchback look that goes on and on. Very sharp design.
