What used Volvo S90 saloon will I get for my budget?
Around £14,000 will find you an early S90 with plenty of miles and a full history from a trader. Up this to between £15,000 and £19,000 and you should find some 2017 full-history cars, with low mileages and with your choice of engines or trims. Spend between £20,000 and £22,000 on a good 2018 or 2019 car, and around £23,000 to £25,000 on a 2019 or 2020 one.
If you're interested in the rarer T8 plug-in hybrid, you'll need around £30,000 to buy one.

How much does it cost to run a Volvo S90 saloon?
In theory, the most frugal S90 is the 2.0-litre T8 petrol-electric plug-in hybrid. This has the stunning official average fuel economy figure of 141.2mpg, with correspondingly impressive 46g/km CO2 emissions figures. However, this will only be achievable in a very few limited circumstances, with its real-world figure being considerably more ordinary. If it fits into your lifestyle, though, it’s worth a look. The 2.0-litre D4 diesel engine helps the S90 achieve an average claimed WLTP figure of 50.4mpg, while the more powerful 2.0-litre D5 claims 43.5mpg.
There are also a couple of more ordinary petrols for those who don't need a diesel and don't have a charging point at home. Both the T4 and T5 are rated to do 37.7mpg, which is unsurprising since they both use the same sized engine.
Cars registered before 1 April 2017 will find their road tax bills low, while it’s worth noting that those registered after that date and costing more than £40,000 when new will attract an extra VED tax until the car is five years old.

Volvo offers a variety of service plans for used cars that can fix the price of parts, labour and oil for up to six years, and this can be paid for on an interest-free monthly basis.
