CarScoops auto online magazine has provided us with a bunch of new spy shots with the upcoming 2017 Volvo S90, while undergoing some final tests in Spain. The model will replace the present Volvo S80.
The 2017 Volvo S90 will be the newest model in the carmaker`s line up and will borrow some design elements from the Concept Estate, which has been already dropped from the production line to make room for a fresh model.
The new S90 will also share the SPA (Scalable Product Architecture) platform, also found on the new XC90, and as the spy shots reveal it might also come with roof rails and other new styling cues.
In the engine department, the 2017 Volvo S90 will be equipped with diesel engines in Europe, the test mule seen here is most likely to pack the 2.0-liter diesel engine, developing 190 horsepower, while in the United States, the model will come with the 2.0-liter turbo gasoline T6 with 190 horsepower, or the 2.0-liter turbo with higher 407 horsepower. The hybrid segment will also receive the T8 twin-engine super-charged, with power to be announced at a later date.
Volvo is on a high pay-role this period, as it has also prepared some special goodies to cope with their natural predators, like the V40 going up against the Volkswagen Golf, or the S60 and V60 running against the BMW 3-Series, or the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
