2020 Volvo S90 vs. Its Competition

2020 Volvo S90
Byron Hurd Byron Hurd Contributor

The 2020 Volvo S90 typically competes against luxury mid-size sedans from Germany that include the Audi A6, BMW 5-Series, and Mercedes-Benz E Class.

All three offer more powertrain configurations, but only the BMW offers a plug-in hybrid, like the S90 T8.

The Merc is loaded with tech, and the Audi A6 is conservative and straightforward—there's not a bad pick among them, really.

The Cadillac CT6 isn't long for lots, discounts may be steep.

The Acura RLX is a refined pick, with a good hybrid powertrain, but take-it-or-leave-it looks.
