AUTOMOBILE's testing process for selecting their All-Stars involves days of intensive driving and discussion among the magazine's editors before voting on which vehicles are worthy of admission.

The Pilot Assist feature steers the vehicle at speeds of up to 80 mph. In keeping with Volvo's trademark dedication to ultimate driver and passenger safety, the S90 is equipped with advanced collision avoidance technology that activates when it senses an impending collision.

Consumers have a choice of two engines when purchasing a Volvo S90 - a a 250-hp turbo or a 316 hp supercharged model. The automatic transmission provides silky-smooth shifting between eight gears, and fuel economy is another strong point. The overall average is 26 mpg with the Volvo S90 stretching it out to 33 mpg on open highway tests. With prices starting at less than $49,000, the Volvo S90 also excels in making luxury accessible to more consumers.
