Volvo and Lexus are two of the famous car brands in the industry, and if you are looking to choose between models like the 2021 Lexus ES and 2020 Volvo S90, go through the below comparison to get a better idea.

Design & Style

The 2021 Lexus ES is a 5-seater model with quiet cabin and well-cushioned seats. Power-adjustable front seats and peforated NuLuxe are standard. With an elegant interior, this Lexus cabin has good construction, but it needs to be upgraded with ambient lighting, semi-aniline leather and authentic wood.

The 2020 Volovo S90 is a 5-seater 4-sedan car with supportive power-adjustable front seats. The rear seats are comfortable and plush, and there is generous amount of legroom and headroom. S90 has one of the best interiors and has striking minimal design with high-end materials, including soft-touch plastics, leather, brushed metal and wood.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Lexus ES comes with an Enform interface, which is labeled as one of the worst systems in the market. The menus are complicated, and there's a lack of touch screen. There's a mouselike touchpad, and you need a lot of attention to use it. Other standard features include wireless smartphone charging, 8-inch display, Wi-Fi hot spot and Siri Eyes Free. ES comes equipped with Lexus Safety System and a rearview camera. The suite has features like lane departure alert, adaptive cruise control, road assign assist, pre-collision system and low-light pedestrian detection.

The Volvo S90 comes standard with Sensus infotainment system, including USB port, Bluetooth, 10-speaker, satellite radio, HD Radio and 9-inch touch screen. Most of the functions are controlled by the tab-like screen, from heating the seats to controlling the climate. With slick graphics, it operates smoothly. You also have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. Standard safety features include lane keep assist, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and automatic emergency braking.


Speaking of performance, the 2021 Lexus ES comes with a 302-HP V6 engine, which does not make it a very quick car, but can speed up enough to take over a slow-moving vehicle. It comes standard with 8-speed automatic transmission.

On the other hand, the Volvo S90 comes with twin-charged T6 engine, which provides ample power for cruising on highways and climbing hills. The transmission is quite smooth, and it offers great fuel efficiency as well.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo S90 is one of the top-rated cars in the market with a high level of refinement. You can trust this model for all it has to offer, in terms of technology and performance. With Lexus ES, the biggest compromise is its infotainment system.
