2017 Volvo S90 vs 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Serving Tallahassee, Valdosta, Thomasville, Quincy, Bainbridge

As luxurious sedans, the 2017 Volvo S90 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class are packed with premium amenities. Both models run on a compact turbocharged engine, but the S90 delivers more net power and torque. The S90's sophisticated cockpit epitomizes modern Swedish styling that's more elegant than the German decor in the E-Class. Additionally, this Volvo offers class-leading safety technology such as the Rear Collision Warning and City Safety.

Interior Room

The 2017 Volvo S90 boasts an elegant interior design that embodies contemporary Scandinavian craftsmanship. The sedan's perforated Nappa leather upholstery is available in rich colors such as blonde, charcoal and amber. Birch wood, aluminum ore and linear walnut are some of the options for the car's inlays. Illuminated sill plates and the charcoal headline add some modern appeal to the Volvo S90's spacious cockpit. When it comes to ergonomics, this Volvo sedan offers class-leading amenities such as the power side bolsters in the front seats. Additionally, the front seats are available with multiple heating and ventilation settings. The rear seats in this Volvo come with power-folding head restraints that can be easily lowered in order to improve the driver's visibility through the rear windshield.

Performance Options

Rated at 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, the 2.0 L turbocharged engine is installed in the 2017 Volvo S90 T5 trims. The T6 editions run on a 2.0 L supercharged engine that is capable of whipping out a maximum of 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the Eco+ Functionality and Start/Stop technology, the Volvo S90 doesn't waste precious gasoline. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan has a similar 2.0 L turbo engine that only offers up to 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. Featuring a gearbox with eight ratios, the Volvo S90's Geartronic automatic transmission system offers smooth shifting just as the 9G-TRONIC transmission system in the E-Class model. When equipped with the All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Instant Traction, this Volvo sedan gets a good grip of the road even in inclement weather. Featuring an electric management system, this drivetrain offers better handling on slippery surfaces compared to the 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive in the E-Class sedan.

Safety Features

Equipped with the City Safety function and Rear Collision Warning, the 2017 Volvo S90 boasts active safety technology that isn't available in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The signature City Safety technology is optimized to prevent collisions at low speeds. The Rear Collision Warning gets the driver's attention when the car behind approaches too fast. Navigating through heavy traffic in the Volvo S90 should be easy with advanced features such as the Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Information System. Such features match the capabilities of the Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Both of these luxury sedans also have technology that scans traffic signs along the way in order to alert the driver about any violations in real time. The Volvo S90 also offers a safe drive in dark conditions thanks to the Active Bending Lights and Active High Beam.
