All-New Volvo S90 Wins Roadshow Editor’s Choice Award
The all-new Volvo S90 luxury sedan has won the Roadshow Editor’s Choice Award, presented by CNET.
“The new S90, like the XC90 before it, really impressed the entire Roadshow crew,” said Tim Stevens, Roadshow editor-in-chief. “The sophisticated styling always caused my glances to linger, while the interior was the kind of cosseting space I didn't want to leave. But, it's the technology that really shines, from the standard Pilot Assist functionality to support for both Android Auto and CarPlay in the excellent Sensus system, there's really very little to fault here.”
