Few luxury sedans can match the influence and prestige of the 2021 Volvo S90. Its spellbinding interior, standardized technology and handling truly make it a special automobile. But what happens when it goes up against the 2021 Chevrolet Camaro, a performance car that has long been prized for its blistering acceleration, magnetic dampers and platform components?

Design & Style

The Chevrolet Camaro has matured to the point where it is capable of contesting many European and Japanese cars. Visually, it can be purchased in the form of either a convertible or coupe, both of which look great. It has an elevated beltline with a roof that has been lowered to make it appear sleeker. The back haunches have been widened with a modified nose to resemble a real world hot wheels vehicle.

The Volvo S90 is stunning. It has a sophisticated exterior which is conservative and designed for the well-heeled. It has beautiful LEDs in front and lines that cut across the outer shell in a lovely pattern. Buyers get the option of multiple paint hues and the cabin is minimalist yet serene with its relaxing leather seats and easy to use digital displays.

Technology & Safety

Volvo is one of the safest automotive brands in the world, and the S90 has completed every crash test with exceptional grades. Its external vision is excellent and its many countermeasures include cruise and lane control, automated emergency brakes, multiple airbags and driver assistance which allow drivers to take their hands away from its steering wheel for short periods of time. Cabin perks include powered and heated seats, nine inch displays, panoramic sunroof, and leather upholstery with wireless smartphone compatibility.

Not only does the Chevrolet Camaro lack active safety functions, but its outward vision is poor. Buyers can get parking sensors and blind area monitoring, but they will have to pay extra. It received a four star NHTSA rating with good scores from the IIHS, and comforts within its cabin include heated/cooled seats, Bose sound system with nine speakers, eight inch displays, satellite radio and Recaro seats.


This is what the Camaro is best known for. Base models come with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can generate 275 horsepower with 295 pounds of torque. It can accelerate from zero to sixty in around 5.4 seconds. The Volvo S90 answers with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can generate 250 horsepower that allows it to go from zero to sixty in about 6 seconds.

The Bottom Line

The Chevrolet Camaro may have a powerful engine with excellent 0 to 60 acceleration times, but this comes at the cost of no active safety functions, tiny rear seats and bad outward vision, making the Volvo S90 the winner.
