Volvo UK has made a new petrol engine available to its flagship saloon and estate models, with the S90 T4 priced from £34,500 and the V90 T4 from £36,500.

The four-cylinder petrol unit is mated to an automatic gearbox as standard, producing 190 PS (187 HP) while offering combined fuel economy figures of 42.2 UK mpg (35.1 US mpg) in the S90 and 40.9 UK mpg (34 US mpg) in the V90.

“Petrol is becoming an increasingly popular choice with motorists, including business users,” said Volvo Car UK exec, Steve Beattie, who expects strong interest in the S90 and V90 T4.

The T4 versions can be purchased from the entry-level Momentum to the high-spec Inscription Pro, and share the same level of standard features as the diesel and petrol-electric hybrid models, such as the Sensus 9″ touchscreen system, sat-nav with Real Time Traffic Information, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection, Pilot Assist semi-autonomous drive technology, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control and leather upholstery.

Both the T4-powered S90 as well as the V90 are available to order now.

Are The New Genesis 90, Lincoln Continental, And Volvo S90 Worthy Alternatives To Germany’s Luxo-Barges? 6

German and Japanese automakers typically dominate the luxury sales chart but Roadshow recently decided to check out alternative sedans from Genesis, Lincoln, and Volvo.

While they may not have the cachet of BMW or Mercedes, the Genesis 90, Lincoln Continental, and Volvo S90 have plenty to offer and cost significantly less than cars like the 7-Series and S-Class – though to be fair, despite their bigger size, they are mostly considered rivals to the 5-Series and E-Class.

Kicking things off is the G90 which stickered for $71,550. It comes equipped with a 3.3-liter V6 that produces 365 hp (272 kW) and 376 lb-ft (509 Nm) of torque. Thanks to all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission, the car can “hustle” while also emitting a pleasant exhaust note. Despite having an upscale interior with tons of space, the car was knocked for not having a touchscreen infotainment system and not supporting Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

The Lincoln Continental wasn’t much cheaper as it cost $70,940. That seems pretty pricey for a Lincoln sedan but the car features a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine that develops 400 hp (298 kW) and 400 lb-ft (541 Nm) of torque. Despite being the most powerful sedan in the test, the reviewers noted the car isn’t “jaw dropping fast” and is the only one in the group to have a six-speed automatic transmission. However, there’s still a lot to like as the car comes loaded with technology and has tons of rear seat legroom.

The Volvo S90 was the cheapest of the three and cost around $66,000. Unfortunately, the model came with a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder which was deemed unrefined. The engine was also the least powerful with 316 hp (235 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque but, on the bright side, it returns 22 mpg city and 31 mph highway.

That bad news doesn’t stop there as review notes sport mode ruins the driving experience and the optional 20-inch wheels result in a bad ride. The interior is also the smallest of the three models and the infotainment system was slow.

In the end, the G90 came out on top as it has a good combination of performance, comfort, and space.

While physically tested by Euro NCAP, the safety organization's partner in Australia and New Zealand, ANCAP (the Australasian New Car Assessment Program), has released their results for the latest Audi A5, Volvo S90 and Hyundai's Ioniq and i20.

Automobile Magazine Names Its 2017 All-Stars 12

Most publications and organizations that name their favorite cars each year go with the top-ten format. But not Automobile. That magazine picks its All-Stars every year by now category or criteria other than what the editors feel are the best on the market.

This year’s pool encompassed 23 contenders from across the market – everything from the humble Honda Civic and the frugal Toyota Prius Prime to the new Aston Martin DB11 and Bentley Bentayga.

The editors evaluated each and every one of them, driving them around the SpeedVegas track and along the twisting mountain roads of Mount Charleston (both in Nevada). At the end of what we’re sure was an exhaustive process, they picked just six, announcing those half-dozen winners at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance this weekend in Florida. And here they are.

Acura NSX

BMW M2

Chevrolet Bolt EV

Honda Civic Hatchback Sport

Porsche 718 Cayman S

Volvo S90

That’s quite the ringing endorsement of Honda’s products, two of which made the final list – while industry powerhouses like Toyota, Nissan, Hyundai, Mercedes, FCA, and Ford didn’t get a single of their cars on the Automobile‘s podium this year.

Oh, and in case you were wondering which contenders didn’t make the cut, here’s the rest of the list:

  • Aston Martin DB11
  • Audi A4
  • Bentley Bentayga
  • Cadillac CT6
  • Cadillac XT5
  • Chrysler Pacifica
  • Ford Focus RS
  • Genesis G90
  • Infiniti Q60
  • Jaguar F-Pace
  • Jaguar XE
  • Lincoln Continental
  • Maserati Levante
  • Mazda CX-9
  • Mercedes-Benz E-Class
  • Nissan GT-R
  • Toyota Prius Prime

With the general consensus being that Volvo's new S90 is a very-modern and stylish family saloon in factory form, perhaps fitting it with large custom brushed chrome wheels may be redundant or even kitsch, to some eyes.

Volvos are known, above all else, for two things: safety and reliability. So we don't see many recalls coming from the Swedish manufacturer, but they do come around from time to time… even if they're rather small and specific in scope. Like with this one, for example.
