Have you been thinking of buying either the 2018 Volvo S90 or the 2018 Audi A6? Well, if you are, then you must not commit the mistake of finalizing your decision based on what you see from the outside. It is always best to consider factors like design and style, technology and safety, and performance. We can help you make that much-awaited decision with the help of this comparison.

Design & Style

A picture of sophistication, there are a lot of things to love in the elegant 2018 Volvo S90. Following a Scandinavian design, it is easy to presume that it is stunning all throughout. Once you get to see it, you will prove that it is more than just charming. Inside it, the limo-like backseat will truly impress you. That is on top of all the greatness that the quality of materials used in the interior brings. The panoramic sunroof is remarkable, and the 18-inch alloy wheels are truly mesmerizing.

A sporty sedan, the 2018 Audi A6 is also impressive in terms of exterior design. Running on the same size of wheels as the Volvo V60, you will surely love it. But for those of you who are looking for a comfortable car to ride, you will have to struggle a bit with the A6. Noise and vibration are evident when you pump up on gas and suspension is stiffer thus a bit disturbing to passengers when upgrading to the Sports package.

Technology & Safety

Along the lines of technology and safety, you will surely love the fact that the 2018 Volvo S90 has been gifted with premium audio that produces sound quality even when the car is on the go. You will also find a reliable navigation system inside this remarkable car model. It will also impress you with the inclusion of the Pilot Assist which works well with adaptive cruise control. It also has steering and lane keeping assist systems that you can rely on at highway speeds. You will also see a 360-degree camera as well as a blind spot monitoring system in the S90.

It is quite a dismay that a car model like the 2018 Audi A6 fails to deliver in terms of technology and safety. It lacks the more recent technologies that its brothers offer. Virtual Cockpit is also missing for this car model.


The 2018 Volvo S90 is a luxury sedan that relies on the power given off by its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine. This is capable of producing up to as much as 258lb-ft of torque and 250 horsepower. Meanwhile, the turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine in the 2018 Audi A6 is capable of producing up to as much as 273lb-ft of torque, and 252 horsepower. There might be a slight difference in the numbers but the Audi A6 is defeated knowing that it will be harder to achieve acceleration once you pump up on its engine. Response time may take a few seconds before you get the results you want from the Audi.

The Bottom Line

After reading this review, will you still doubt that the 2018 Volvo S90 is far better than the 2018 Audi A6. It looks elegant on the outside, beautiful on the inside, and rich in terms of technology and safety features. The engine under its hood is powerful as well.
