Volvo S90 honoured as Used Executive Car of the Year in Car Dealer Used Car Awards

• Volvo’s large premium saloon crowned the best pick among executive models on the UK’s used car market

• Experts praise the S90’s comfort, Scandinavian styling, refinement and driving quality, and the wider appeal of Volvo’s rejuvenated model range

• Volvo Selekt approved-used car service is the ideal way to access the best pre-owned Volvo models with complete peace of mind


Volvo’s flagship saloon, the S90, has won the Used Executive Car of the Year title in the 2020 Car Dealer Used Car Awards. Its success confirms the model’s individual appeal and lasting quality.


Introduced to the market in 2016, the S90 interprets all the qualities that define the Volvo brand today in the context of a traditional four-door saloon design. Cool and distinctive Scandinavian styling, a luxurious interior finished in premium natural materials, and a smooth and refined driving experience are combined with advanced connectivity and safety technology that address the priorities of today’s executive market customers.


The new, updated S90 model range is available exclusively with Volvo’s highly efficient and powerful Recharge Plug-in Hybrid T8 petrol-electric powertrain; for used car customers, the choice also includes Volvo’s Drive-E petrol and diesel engines.


Announcing the award tonight (Friday, 5 February), broadcaster and used car guru Mike Brewer said: “The S90 is a cracking car. I love the looks, it’s great value on the used market, and the premium driving experience, refinement and Swedish touches are wonderful.”


James Baggott, Car Dealer Editor in Chief, added: “We’re massive fans of Volvo at Car Dealer, and what the manufacturer has achieved over the past few years with the rejuvenation of the brand is nothing short of remarkable. We’d recommend Volvos, like the S90, over their rivals time and time again because they’re simply very, very good.”


David Chesterman, Volvo Car UK Used Car Programme Manager, said: “The executive car market has always been fiercely contested, and this award is welcome confirmation of the qualities that set the S90 apart and continue to make it an appealing choice for used car customers. It’s an even more compelling proposition when acquired with the extensive quality guarantees provided by our Volvo Selekt approved-used car service.”
