Considering safety has always been a unique selling point for the brand, it's odd that no Volvo S90 safety review has yet been conducted by the NHTSA, so it remains unrated from this particular US agency. However, the IIHS has taken a good look at the sedan and ended up giving it a top score of Good in every crash test. This is after the 2022 model received a Top Safety Pick+ award.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Few automakers have the commitment to safety that Volvo does, and the S90 upholds this ideology with a stellar safety reputation. it comes equipped with seven airbags (including a driver's knee airbag), hill start assist, lane-keep assist, blind-spot assist, rear cross-traffic alert, rain-sensing wipers, road sign information, oncoming lane collision mitigation, and collision mitigation both front and rear. Other safety items that won't add anything to your bill are a rearview camera, post-impact braking, adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera, and parking sensors front and rear. Pilot Assist is a partially autonomous system that helps the S90 maintain its position in the center of the lane with marginal steering support, up to speeds of 80 mph. This feature can also be used in stop-and-go driving conditions. The graphical head-up display is standard in the Ultimate trim.

Though there is no official reliability rating to refer to, there has been a single recall for the latest Volvo S90 for issues that could result in a loss of drive power. has not been recalled for any reliability issues at the time of writing. This is a carry-over problem from the previous model year, but so few recalls are indicative of high build quality.
Every new Volvo S90 is sold with a four-year/50,000-mile limited and powertrain warranty. Volvo also throws in three years/36,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance, matching BMW in this regard. Hybrid components are covered for eight years/100,00 miles.
