Upon searching for a luxury vehicle to invest in, you will most probably be presented with choices from Volvo and Audi. Such brands are highly-regarded for having vehicles that have all the luxurious qualities that most people look for in such indulgent automobiles. The best-sellers for these brands include both the 2019 Volvo S90 and the 2019 Audi A6. Here is a comparison to find out which one deserves a car lover's full attention. 

Design & Style

Designed with sophistication in mind, the S90 has simple yet elegant details to show off its Scandinavian styling. The Thor's hammer LED headlights made it look confident and added a strong character to the exterior. For its cabin, there are exquisite details that do not only display craftsmanship but also enhanced the passenger and driver's comfort.

As for the A6, the exterior does not look too flashy. It is simple and made it somehow unrelated to most Audis that look aggressive. It somehow redeemed itself on the cabin with the ambient lighting and intricate design details.

Technology & Safety

The Sensus infotainment system is the brain behind the innovative technology on the S90. The addition of a driver display screen aside from the center console is a genius way of minimizing the need to peel the eyes off the road just to take a quick look at the touchscreen. The City Safety system is also a huge help in adding extra protection against any potential collisions. 

The A6 may have a not so impressive styling but it does make a huge recovery for its infotainment system. The seamless smartphone integration is remarkable and works really well with both the audio and navigation systems. There are plenty of driver aids too that work accurately to ensure a safe drive always.


Under the hood of the S90 is a turbocharged 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine. It can comfortably deliver 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Its seamless acceleration is a testament to how responsive the car is. Aside from a smooth power delivery, it is also fuel-efficient with lower consumption and emissions.

The A6 is quick thanks to its 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque engine. Its acceleration is not explosive but it is excellent at passing power across different speeds. There is also a good centering action but the steering can be a bit heavy.  

The Bottom Line

Both the 2019 Volvo S90 and the 2019 Audi A6 are highly-rated for their luxurious characteristics but the one that shows how a proper luxury vehicle should behave on the road is the S90. It has a more powerful engine and delivers a more agile performance compared to the A6.
