Which used Volvo S90 saloon should I buy?

The S90’s D5 diesel engine used a clever compressed air system to help the turbocharger kick in more promptly, with the result it accelerates extremely well. The lower powered D4 isn’t as quick, but it has enough shove to move the S90 around, and it’s more economical. Both engines can be a little gruff when cold, and the eight-speed gearbox is a little too hesitant.

The T8 is a petrol-electric hybrid. It’s extremely quick to accelerate and it shuffles between power sources easily. It might not be able to match its average claimed fuel economy figures, but it’s a viable alternative if you’re not sure about committing to a diesel option.

Entry-level Momentum trim makes most sense. You get LED headlights, heated leather seats, sat-nav, Bluetooth and a DAB radio. On top of that, there’s a powered boot lid, keyless start and rear parking sensors. Stepping up to Inscription brings extra interior lighting, Nappa leather seats and a larger 12.3in digital instrument cluster, as well as bigger alloys and electric front seats. R-Design adds a different suspension which makes the ride harsher, so we’d avoid its otherwise tempting package.
