What Would You Buy Instead: Volvo S90 AWD Edition

Recommended Posts

C&D just did an instrumented test on the new Volvo S90, and I thought this would be a good basis for a 'WWYBI' thread. Link- C&D 2017 Volvo S90 Test


The car as tested ran 65K, but starts at 52K. So let's use a range of $52,000-67,000.


1) Car must be a sedan.

2) Must be a new, on-sale MY 2016 or 2017 model.

3) Must be AT LEAST $52,000 MSRP, but NO MORE THAN $67,000 MSRP.

I so wanted to go A6, but optioned like I want, it breaks out of the price bracket. Thought about the CT6, but ditto. Lexus GS makes the price cut, but I don't think I could drop 60K+ on an N/A V6. A stripper M3 makes the cut by a few hundred dollars. 

I was left with two top contenders- MB C43 AMG loaded out, or loaded S4. And I like the S4's styling a bit better. Loaded Misano Red Prestige w/ DSG and Sport Pkg with all the goodies comes in at a shade over 62K. A pretty good deal, if you ask me. With the money left over, I could do Eurodyne tune and Milltek exhaust.

I'm not sure if this is kind of cheating because of the size of the car but I'd take an ATS-V with the Tech Package and the black optional wheels dressed in Phantom Grey. = $65,282

Like this plus black wheels.


I LOVE that color!

Both Cadillacs CT6 and CTS will probably be a choice for me here.

But..Id like to add a  car that could very well be overlooked here.

The Lincoln Continental


I dont care how one views this car. I myself has been very harsh on it. But in this price range, it could be the one to own...(if one is looking for a nice, plush and quiet ride)

Very much.  Grays can either look dowdy or drop dead sexy and this is definitely the latter!

GM definitely has excellent color choices.

CTS V-Sport, starts at $61.2k

This would be my choice.

Quite honestly, I'd stick with the S90 or go with the CT6.


I can't get behind the S90, not a fan of the styling.
