Both the S90 and E-Class aim to set new standards for exterior and interior design. The Volvo’s flowing lines and minimalist cabin create a cool and modern air, although it’s undermined by some poor detailing, such as the clumsy looking wood trim. The Mercedes’ styling isn’t as fresh, but it oozes premium appeal and is packed with hi-tech touches.
Volvo and Mercedes have been at the cutting edge of safety tech for decades, and these cars are no exception. The S90’s autonomous driving systems set new standards for Volvo in the class, while the Mercedes can automatically dial the emergency services if you’re in an accident.
