Cape Town - Prices for the upcoming new Volvo S90 has been officially released by Volvo South Africa.
Wheels24 editor Sergio Davids experienced the new model in Spain during its international launch in July 2016.
Davids said: "The S90 is a true rival to many luxury sedans and once you're seated behind the wheel it's likely this one will charm you."
Prices for the executive sedan start at R675 200 with the range-topping model, T6 Geartronic AWD R-Design, topping off at R871 900.
Volvo South Africa managing director, Greg Maruszewski, said: "With the new Volvo S90 we are about to challenge the definition of luxury once again, a feat we achieved with the all-new XC90 when it launched in South Africa in mid-2015."
The new S90 range includes twelve derivatives, spanning three trim levels - Momentum, Inscription and R-Design.
Initially available with D5 AWD or T6 AWD drivetrains and in Momentum or Inscription trim, the new Volvo S90 makes its South African debut towards the end of 2016.
In 2017, D4 FWD and T5 FWD versions will become available, along with the sportier R-Design trim level.
