The 2021 Volvo S90 is the type of car that is driven by corporate executives, movie stars and professional athletes. Its commanding presence, uncompromising interior and standardized safety features separate it from the pack. But what happens when it goes against the 2021 Lincoln Continental, a luxurious American made car that is also driven by the well heeled and privileged?

Design & Style

The Lincoln Continental is one of the most beautiful cars ever made, a master stroke of engineering. It is stately and sleek from every angle, with classy touches such as the optional lights which are made from the logo or the door handles which are perfectly integrated into its chrome windows. The cabin looks absolutely swanky with its blue dark leather, natural wood and glossy accents. The Volvo S90 is equally gorgeous, with its long hood and exterior curves which are as smooth as a bottle of high end champagne. Buyers get the option of a number of sophisticated exterior colors with names like icy silver blue or icy gray. Those lucky enough to sit in the cabin will be treated to high definition displays, soft touch leather and authentic wood trim.

Technology & Safety

Volvo has become synonymous with safety, and for good reason. The S90 is equipped with a large array of countermeasures, such as adaptive cruise control, emergency automatic brakes, blind area monitoring, multiple airbags, outward vision and Pilot Assist. Luxuries within the cabin include a sunroof which is panoramic, heated/cooled seats, the option of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, and wireless charging for smartphones. The Lincoln Continental has received a perfect 5 star rating from the NHTSA, and is equipped with most of the safety features found in the S90, along with parking assist, cameras with surround view and headlights with automatic high beams. Its cabin perks include keyless entry, ambient lights, power seats that can be adjusted ten ways, climate control and Bluetooth support.


The Lincoln Continental comes with a V6, 3.7 liter engine that can generate 305 horsepower. Front wheel drive comes standard on the base models. The Volvo S90 T6 can generate 316 horsepower with 295 pounds of torque, which allows it to accelerate from zero to sixty in just six seconds.

The Bottom Line

Both of these cars are so well designed that it is almost a tie, almost. Their looks, performance, safety features and amenities share many similarities. However, those who have test driven the Lincoln Continental have stated that its six speed automatic is sluggish and the front wheel drive is a bit inadequate when compared to the Volvo, so the S90 wins.
