Borrowing styling from Volvo’s most recent concepts and the XC90 SUV, the new S90 looks like a more “premium sedan” than the outgoing S80. It also features a face that is similar to the XC90 with its Thor’s Hammer LED daytime running lights.

The big news is that the S90 also sees the introduction of a new host of technologies, including a new semi-autonomous drive feature, called Pilot Assist. The system is capable of controlling the steering to keep the large sedan in its lane at speeds up to 80 mph. The S90 will also be available with the same T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain as the XC90.
