Volvo S90 leaks out again, thanks to the scale model!

Snapshot: Set to replace the aging S80, Volvo's new S90 is a beauty.

Geely-owned Volvo is preparing a worthy successor to the S80, which will take the shape of a mid-size premium sedan set to be sold with the “S90” moniker that will be making a comeback in the Swedish marque’s lineup. Seen here is an officially-licensed scale model of the car in question that will be revealed before the end of the year, with sales to commence in early 2016 in China, while other markets will get the model shortly thereafter.

As you can see from the attached images, it looks nothing like the outdated S80, since Volvo has implemented its new design language that debuted on the second generation XC90. The S90 will be considerably bigger than its predecessor and is going to come with the LED daytime-running lights, known as Thor’s Hammer, while at the back, we notice the huge “Volvo” lettering and big C-shaped LED taillights.

The sloped roofline gives it an Audi A7 Sportback vibe, and it also has plenty of chrome accents for the window line and the dual exhaust tips. We already know that it will ride on Volvo’s newly-developed Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), just like the XC90 SUV. So, it will be offered exclusively with four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines.

Thanks to the increased footprint, expect the extended wheelbase to enable a significantly more spacious interior cabin where the rear passengers will get to enjoy additional legroom. Photos of the interior are not available at this point but through these blurry pics of the scale model we can see the cabin will have very much in common with the XC90, but obviously with a different configuration suitable for the sedan body style.

Following the market launch of the S90 premium mid-size sedan, Volvo will also launch a wagon version scheduled to come out towards the end of 2016 or 2017, with the “V90” nameplate and a design directly influenced by the stunning Concept Estate.
