What are the main factors that you consider when you are buying a new car? Is it how it looks outside making sure it is good enough to impress bystanders? Is it more of the quality of materials used to construct it? Is it the technology and safety aspect offered by these cars? All of these factors are important. That is why, in this comparison between the 2018 Volvo S90 and the 2018 Lexus GS Hybrid, we have considered all the aforementioned factors.

Design & Style

Sophistication is a top priority for the maker of the 2018 Volvo S90. This is evident with the inclusion of 18-inch alloy wheels that are ready to take you anywhere you want to go. Of course, you will notice that once you get inside this car, the seats are so comfortable too. Materials for the interior are not sacrificed thus making it ready to battle any car model out there.

A sports luxury sedan, the 2018 Lexus GS Hybrid is a picture of ruggedness on the outside. It is also evident that this offers the level of elegance you want in a hybrid. The cabin is well-ventilated too and will give you a smooth ride. Some other materials are not as good as you want to see them thus making you think that the maker should at least eliminate some of the unnecessary ones.

Technology & Safety

The maker of the 2018 Volvo S90 must have recognized the importance of technology and safety features for this car. With that in mind, you will get a premium audio system that matches its remarkable navigation system. With the S90, you also get a host of safety features, ranging from the more basic 360-degree camera and blind spot monitoring system to the more advanced Pilot Assist and steering and lane keeping assist systems.

One of the many reasons that some drivers would love to own the 2018 Lexus GS Hybrid is the inclusion of the Remote Touch interface, which is a common selling point for all car models of the brand. While you will love the fact that this comes blessed with a 12-speaker audio system and a huge 12.3-inch touchscreen display, it will still fail to impress you because both features are not easy to use. It may have some driver safety aids but they do not work the same way as those that the S90 has.


The 2018 Volvo S90 is gifted with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine which can produce up to as much as 250 horsepower and 252lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 2018 Lexus GS Hybrid is gifted with a V6, 3.5-liter engine that makes it capable of yielding an output of up to 340 horsepower. While this is the case, a shift in acceleration takes time for the car to engage.

The Bottom Line

After reading this comparison, we bet you are convinced that the 2018 Volvo S90 will give you your money's worth. It should definitely be your next car.
