2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2020 Volvo S90

You can instantly tell why a car is classified as a premium vehicle. The terrific refinement shows from the exterior down to every detail in its cabin.

As far as luxury vehicles are concerned, both the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and 2020 Volvo S90 are acknowledged to be on top of the ranks. There is a long list of positive characteristics that are attributed to these cars but the only one can emerge as a top performer.

Design & Style

There’s a reason why the E-Class remains to be on top of its game even though it is now on its fifth generation. It is a stunner in any configuration, especially with the curvy exterior. The beautiful proportions and the big star on its grille instantly catch anyone’s attention. Inside the cabin is an excellent mix of retro styling and modern tech features. The addition of mood lighting and the sophisticated-looking stitching on the synthetic leather elevates the style factor even more.

Volvo is known for its safety configurations but it is not necessarily popular for being stylish. The S90 may be one of the modern Volvos but the design cues are still all over the place. The long hood, for example, looks awkward on the front-wheel-drive architecture. The cabin, however, looks nice with the premium touches, like the matte wood trim.

Technology & Safety

The new infotainment setup for the E-Class is a combination of the COMAND® and MBUX from the brand. The MBUX voice controls work great and are integrated to work with Smartphone integration. The sound quality of the audio system is also good. There are also plenty of driver aids that work effectively and never cause any distraction.

As for the S90’s infotainment, it is really up to the owner how advanced the features will be. It can be configured to be as great as the MBUX but there would be a high price to pay.


The E-Class also exceeds most expectations for its road performance. The base engine is a 255 hp 2.0-liter engine that is docile at city speeds but can roar if driven with more enthusiasm. The steering is very accurate and even small inputs can generate precise and impressive responsiveness. It also handles very well in terms of its curb weight.

The S90 is both turbocharged and supercharged with its 316hp 2.0-liter engine. This may be impressive but it actually does not feel as sporty as it should be. The steering is not sharp and it is particularly heavy.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Volvo S90 focused on having the best ride from its powerful engine but it sadly was not able to succeed. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is better because of its stunning design, modern tech features, and notable road manner are well-blended to create a noteworthy vehicle.
