Spy Pics: Volvo S90L Spotted Testing

Written By:

Volvo is currently testing the S90L, an extended wheelbase variant of the S90 luxury sedan.

Volvo will add up to 100mm to the wheelbase of the S90 to create the extended wheelbase S90L which should help those in the backseat of the new car to stretch their legs out even more.

The spied test mules of the new car have been spotted testing with minimal amounts of camouflage on the streets of China, the sole market for the new vehicle.

The increase in length in the new car can be easily seen from the B-pillar onwards. The rear doors look noticeably longer than the ones found on the normal S90, which makes it very clear where all the extra space will be added on.

The S90L will be available with two engine options — the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder T5 engine that produces 257hp and 350Nm of torque  and the more powerful T6 engine that adds a supercharger to T5's 2.0-litre turbocharged engine to crank the power and torque up to 315hp and 400Nm respectively.

The T5 powered S90L uses an 8-speed automatic gearbox to send the power to the front wheels while T6 variant uses the same gearbox to distribute the power to all four wheels.

The S90L is currently only meant for the Chinese market and will launch there later this year.

Meanwhile, the S90 is expected to enter India in September. When it finally does put its wheels down on Indian tarmac, it will become the first car in the country to be sold with activated radar-based safety systems.
