It can be a trick choice when you are looking to buy a car, and have to choose between models like the 2020 BMW 5-Series and the 2020 Volvo S90. Both have an amazing set of features to offer, but Volvo may be slightly ahead in competition. The below comparison will tell you why car buyers have that inclination.

Design & Style

The BMW 5-Series is a 5-seater car with supportive, roomy and comfortable seats. It helps you keep in place during long drives, but the rear seats can be disappointing. Adults may feel cramped at the back. The interior feels like a luxury sedan, featuring an attractive cabin and quality materials. Some reviewers feel it could have been better from a style standpoint.

The 2020 Volvo S90 is a-sedan that can seat up to 5 people with supportive power-adjustable front seats on offer. The rear seats are cozy, and there is ample amount of headroom and legroom. The interior features a minimalist design, along with some luxury touches and quality materials.

Technology & Safety

The 2020 BMW 5-series comes standard with an iDrive infotainment system, alongside navigation, 12-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, USB ports, moonroof and dual-zone automatic climate control.  The iDrive system has a user-friendly interface, but too many controls may distract the driver. Furthermore, you don't have Android Auto smartphone integration in this model. Some of the standard safety features include rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, parking sensors and a rearview camera.

The 2020 Volvo S90 comes equipped with Sensus infotainment interface featuring a 9-inch screen, HD radio, satellite radio, 10-speakers, Bluetooth and USB port. Drivers can have easy access to the controls, thanks to straightforward menu layout. Additionally, you have smartphone connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Standard driver assistance features include automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and lane keep assist.


The bases 530i model of BMW comes with a 248-HP turbocharged four cylinder engine, with ample power for daily driving. For more potent acceleration, you can opt for the Volvo S90 that comes with a T6 powetrain. It can get you going on highways with ease, and allows for smooth transition.

The Bottom Line

S90 is one of the best all-rounded luxury cars you will find in the market. User-friendly tech, premium interior, smooth ride and high fuel efficiency are some of the traits of this model. BMW 5-series hardly stands a chance against S90. It delivers the kind of class and performance you desire for, when investing in an expensive luxury car.
