Stealth Wealth: The 2017 – 2019 Volvo S90


Stealth Wealth: The 2017 – 2019 Volvo S90

For many decades, Volvo has been almost a byword for automotive safety. They were one of the first automakers to use seatbelts in the 1950s (although Mercedes-Benz might argue that claim). They also introduced other innovations like side impact & curtain airbags, automatic emergency braking, and seats that are designed to absorb energy in a crash. One thing you might not know about this Swedish marque however, is just how luxurious and stylish their cars have become. An example of that is the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Volvo S90. It’s a big luxury sedan that was designed to compete with heavyweights like the Mercedes E Class and BMW 5-Series. Though many would argue that the interior and exterior of this big Volvo is much better looking than its competitors from Germany. It isn’t however, as overtly expensive. Meaning that there isn’t a whole lot of brand cachet to be had here. And that’s perfectly fine, because this is a car for people who don’t care about “keeping up with the Joneses”. They just want to reward themselves with a beautifully designed luxury car. Plus if you buy a used Volvo S90 from Off Lease Only, you can save a lot of money by allowing the original buyer to take that huge depreciation loss. So let’s look at a used Volvo S90 buyers guide, and see just what you get from this stealth wealth indulgence.

Used 2017 – 2019 Volvo S90 Models

Shunning the predictable choice often leads to unexpected delights. Such is the case with a used Volvo S90. This sumptuous Swedish sedan simply shines with its sophisticated-ly muscular outside styling, and beautifully trimmed minimalist interior. There’s matte finished wood, real aluminum trim and soft leather everywhere. The 9 inch infotainment screen is filled with the tablet-like Volvo Sensus interface, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2017 Volvo S90 uses a standard wheelbase, whereas the 2018 – 2019 Volvo S90 comes only as a long wheelbase model, which is 4.5 inches longer than the 2017 Volvo S90. Most of that extra length is enjoyed by the backseat passengers, who will have limousine levels of legroom.
