What’s New for the 2017 Volvo S90?

The Volvo S90 will be the first automobile in the United States that will come standard with semi-autonomous driving technology. The second-generation Pilot Assist technology will allow the S90 to automatically aid with acceleration, deceleration, and steering at speeds of up to 80 mph, but unlike the Volvo XC90 SUV, the S90 doesn’t need to be trailing another vehicle to be able to use its Driver Assist technology. The S90 will be able to use noticeable lane markings in order to stay in the proper lane.
