[Music] the Volvo s90 is due to launch here next Martin I drove it a couple of months ago in Spain and I came away feeling that this was not a car to get your pulse racing but it was one that definitely knew how to calm it down its focus is very clear that's comfort and luxury and on those counts it really impressed me well what we have to see is in our indian conditions and with the engine in a slightly different state of tune because I drove a different one there
00:44
can it do the same [Music] well to begin with it really doesn't look like the Volvos we know those strong Volvo haunches give way to a sleeker more sculpted rear and though it has a lot going on with the inset for the logo the cuts and creases and the C shaped taillights I really like the rear because it is so different the side has a coupie like profile and a strong shoulder line that goes straight across from bonnet to boot it sits on 18 inch to 45 45 tires and
01:17
what lends it the luxury feel is the fact that the front tires have been extended a little further forward giving it a larger axle to - length and meaning a huge wheelbase the long bond it extends out culminating in the grille with 23 concave slats that's taken from the Volvo's iconic P 1800 the grille is flanked on both sides by those ever so recognizable Thor's hammer LED lamps there's no two ways about it it is a smart looking car the interior
01:48
spell luxury in big bold letters is a nice flat leather up - nappa seats pure wood accents along the car and of course that now-familiar vertically said infotainment system that takes pride of place in the center yes it does take off all the right boxes and then there's the fantastic sounding Bowers & Wilkins system sunroof and a whole host of goodies that you get well
02:23
considering this is the luxury segment most owners are going to want to be in the back seat so let's begin there [Music] [Music] well it's a really comfortable back seat space there's plenty of it in fact I'd go so far as saying is I think peace is the segment leader as far as legroom is concerned the seats themselves are really comfortable if there's one thing that's lacking a little bit it's under
03:15
thigh support it could have done with a little bit more still with the amount of legroom it does allow the rear seat passenger to sit with legs crossed or stretched out so you can get really comfortable in addition there are side blinds and the touchscreen for the climate control for rear passengers too however there's no rear Sun blind now what's really impressive is right quality just smothers the road when I saw those low-profile tires I was a little bit worried as to how it would be in our
03:48
conditions but I have to say whether your low-speed ambling along in city traffic or cruising along a highway it is just like you're gliding along it's truly impressive it's flat and composed and definitely puts another big tick on the luxury box the only time you can feel the suspension is over sharp edged bumps but even that is milder than most it does stiffen when you drive it in dynamic mode and it's not as pillowy as it is in comfort but the impressive part
04:20
is even in dynamic it still feels darn good what else is really good as cabin insulation I mean this just shuts off everything from the outside there's just no any noise sounds from the outside the wind noise really feel cocooned inside I could sit in this back seat forever but I have to change over and Nikhil if you could stop maybe I could get behind
04:53
the wheel [Music] you [Music] the version of the car I drove on my earlier test drive in Spain came with a d5 engine with 235 HP and power pal system but this d4 engine doesn't have that and it comes with just 190 HP and 400 Nm of torque well like I said earlier this engine won't get your pulse is racing but it's no slouch either it gets up to
05:37
triple digit speeds in a calm and smooth manner and pretty easily the acceleration is linear and you don't find a sudden surge of power at any point it feels its strongest between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm so you find overtakes quite easy from the outside the engine really doesn't sound refined but inside the cabin it's a whole new story it's barely audible it settles into a cruise quite comfortably and it never feels underpowered or out of breath and on the
06:11
flip side it's equally comfortable dealing with city traffic and low speed conditions the gearbox is a little slow to react when you want that sudden burst of power takes a little time but it responds better to a gentler foot there are no paddle shifts because this car doesn't pretend to be sporty but you can put it into manual mode and that gets rid of any lag time on the ships there are three driving modes eco comfort and dynamic when you do want an extra dose of energy dynamic offers that up quite
06:43
well sharpening the throttle response and quickening the shifts now with the focus so strongly on luxury you know needless to say this doesn't really engage you as a driver and it feels a little soft around the corners but it still gives you a good measure of security you can carry a fair amount of speed and needless to say you know straight-line stability is really really good and you feel extremely planted and
07:16
safe the lane assist safety system works well as we found out on the single lane highways every time we wanted to overtake the little light would flash and a steering would vibrate and offer a small amount of resistance but it's not the best application on our single lane highways because we do need to weave past traffic so I switched it off but on an expressway it would be great what the s90 also offers is the Park Assist feature you have to drive by a parking spot the car assesses whether you can
07:50
fit in and lets you know if there is an available space all you have to do is use the gears as instructed and it does the rest being a Volvo there is also a strong list of safety features one has to mention here that Volvo has only 16 showrooms around the country so its reach is not as strong as its competitors and after sales is a factor that's important to Indian customers too [Music] I launched the Volvo s90 will come with only one engine the d4 and in one
08:34
variant the inscription loaded with all the bells and whistles at an expected price of around 55 lakh which puts it right up there with its competitors now it does a fabulous job of being a luxury car even in our conditions and being inside the cabin is a calm and soothing experience whether you're behind the wheel or in the backseat it makes a very compelling choice in its segment and you'll definitely feel like you've got your money's worth so should you buy one well if luxury and comfort is what you're after most definitely yes
