Drove the S90 recently. Looking forward to buy the V90 in couple of years to compliment wife's V60

The US market is getting the long wheelbase version for the coming model year. I think volvo might offer the same option once they can gauge the reaction to that new E class. It could be a game changer for Volvo in India.

Great review. MY 2018 Inscription trim is further upgraded with massage seats, rear window/windshield curtains as well. Great value for money at this price range.

I had the pleasure of inspecting this car at close range last year, when I was in the market for a new, larger car, to replace my i10. I fell in love with the design, and I still think it has the best in class interior design, and a great feature list. I do wish that the rare seats offered better under thigh support, and that Volvo could have done a better job in storing the spare wheel in the boot without merely building an enclosure on the boot floor to hide the wheel. That apart, I loved everything about the car, especially its concave front fascia, which is so unique and cool to look at. The signature DRLs are eye-catchy, too.

The last time I checked, the Kochi dealership was offering to upgrade the car to a Polestar performance package, whereby the output breaches the 200 BHP mark, and also increases the torque to 440 Nm, for an additional 70k, which seemed reasonable to me, especially since it doesnít affect the warranty. Donít know if they still do that. I recall that I had stopped short of booking the car because the post GST price hike was pushing it beyond my budget radar, and also because the dealer didnít have a TD car available for a long time, due to the GST issues in importing the vehicle.

Every Volvo sold gets a polestar remap ( paid) , that's what he is talking about. It's available for all diesel and petrol cars sold by Volvo.
