The 2021 Volvo S90 is a flagship vehicle that commands respect from its rivals due to its fabulous cabin, regal exterior and formidable performance. But can it match the power and prestige of the 2021 BMW 4 Series, a car with a powerful and responsive engine, host of luxury features and superb handling?

Design & Style

The BMW 4 Series has a distinctive kidney grille in front that is vertically extended. Additional vents have also been added to manage the hungry engine, and the outer frame is long and sleek with a shortened trunk. The cabin is truly opulent, with classy wood, leather and metallic accents. The black trim in particular looks and feels great. The Volvo S90 is reserved, minimalist, and very tasteful, the type of car that is driven by sophisticated people. The grille has been revised with an update rear, but this car is confident and composed rather than glitzy. The LED lights in front are shaped like hatpins with C shaped rear lights and the car looks best in icy silver or icy gray. Passengers in the cabin will be treated to HD screens, supple leather seats and natural wood.

Technology & Safety

Volvo is renowned for its safety, and the S90 is no exception. It has done well in crash tests and offers excellent outward vision, along with lane and cruise control, the ability to monitor blind spots, automated emergency brakes and driver assist, just to name a few. Cabin luxuries are extensive and include the choice of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, panoramic sunroof, heated seats and a camera with surround view. The BMW 4 Series is equipped with many of the safety countermeasures found in the S90, and has captured the coveted Top Safety Pick. It has pedestrian detection, automated high beam lights, and a degree of autonomous operation tech. Perks within its cabin include a moonroof, climate control, multimedia, seats made with carbon fiber and smartphone compatibility.

Performance

The BMW 4 Series is one of the most powerful cars in its class. It is equipped with a turbo 4 engine that can generate 255 horsepower, which can accelerate from zero to sixty in about 5.5 seconds. The Volvo S90 is also equipped with a turbo 4 that is 2 liter and capable of generating 250 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

Though nearly tied when it comes to performance and interior amenities and safety, many people dislike the front grille in the BMW, and it doesn't offer a manual option and some have found it difficult to get into the backseat, making the Volvo S90 the winner.
