Volvo has recently launched the facelift of its flagship sedan, S80, in India. The company has redone its exterior and interior extensively without any major change to its powertrain. However, the model is due to reach in its next-generation which is now said to be renamed as the S90. The nomenclature of Volvo cars is interesting which, however, feels quite incoherent but is cleverly defined where 'S' stands for sedans, 'V' for crossovers and the 'XC' for utility models.

While, the alphabetical order reveal their segment, the numeric part bespeaks for their class as '40' is for entry-level models, '60' for mid-size while the '90' stands for range-topping large models. The new Volvo S90 is likely to make its global debut at Geneva Motor Show next year. Inspired with the Volvo's Coupe concept which made its debut last year, the S90 will boast outstanding design language with several class-leading goodies inside and out.

Powertrain options are likely include the modern-time efficient yet powerful hybrid system, while the present diesel and petrol engines will be tuned to perform more proficiently. Not to forget, a plethora of benchmark safety features, which Volvo is world-famous for, will be loaded to take the crown away from its competitors for safety trait. The new S90 will be positioned to rival the German trio in premium segment of S-Class, 7-Series and the A8.
