The 2020 Volvo S90 may have gotten rid of the T5 model, as well as its front-wheel drive versions, but car buyers in Manhattan find this luxury midsize car a delight, as usual. This is because of its elegant and spacious interior, which has comfortable seats to hold up to five adults.

As for the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon, it is an all-new model that easily grabs the attention of car buyers out there. It has plenty of cargo space which adds to the eagerness of those wanting to purchase this car.

Design & Style

The 2020 Volvo S90 is sporty and modern on the outside. Inside it, comfort and luxury is evident. It has power-adjustable front seats that make adjustments easier for one's seating position. You will praise it for the amount of headroom and legroom that it provides on both rows. Not to forget that the cozy, upscale cabin is an added attraction. You will find plenty of premium materials inside, including brushed metal, leather, wood, and soft-touch plastics.

A modern car gifted with a beautiful look, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon scores high in terms of design as well. Note, however, that it fails to impress in terms of sportiness because it lacks that level of personality that its rivals offer, the S90 included. It lacks the quality of cabin materials that the Volvo has.

Technology & Safety

There are plenty of technologies in the Volvo S90, the most notable of which is its ever-reliable Sensus infotainment system that has a nine-inch touchscreen. On top of that, it also has a 10-speaker audio, a USB port, Bluetooth interface, satellite radio, HD radio, and a navigation system. It has a long list of safety features, as well, aside from its standard rearview camera. More advanced driver aids include automatic high-beam headlights, front and rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, forward and rear collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist.

With an 8-inch touchscreen to support its infotainment interface, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon also provides smartphone integration. Despite the touchscreen being there, it can be noted that buttons clutter the dashboard. For safety, automatic high beams, pre-collision warning, and front and rear parking are among the ones to look forward to.


There are two powertrains in the 2020 S90. The first one is the T6, which carries its base-engine. The setup combines turbocharging and supercharging capacities in its four-cylinder engine to generate 316 horsepower. The other is the T8, which pairs its base engine with a lithium-ion battery pack as well as an electric motor to generate 400 horsepower. Meanwhile, the Volkswagen Arteon has a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter version that turbocharges it to yield up to 258 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

A lovely car with the design elements you are looking for, the S90 easily topples down the Arteon. It has a long list of technology and safety features, all reliable, as always. Of course, the powerful set of engines in this car adds more points to it.
