2021 Volvo S90 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Size & Comfort

From the get-go, the 2021 S90 is a larger vehicle than the E-Class, providing much more cabin space for up to five to travel comfortably, no matter the length of the journey. You get an abundance of head- and legroom in the S90, including 40.4 inches of rear legroom compared to the 36.2 inches of rear legroom in the E-Class. You can also fit more cargo in the S90's trunk than you can in the E-Class. While both luxury sedans offer standard power heated front seats, only the S90 has standard genuine leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof, and a CleanZone Multifilter system that removes smog and odors from the air to make the cabin more enjoyable. The E-Class only offers a dual-zone climate control and if you want amenities like leather seats or a panoramic sunroof, you should be prepared to pay more.

2021 Volvo S90 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Technology

Both sedans offer a convenient infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and Bluetooth® for streaming music, checking maps, making hands-free calls, and much more. But only the S90 has the Volvo Sensus system with a tablet-size display integrated into the dashboard and a standard wireless charging pad for your smartphone. The E-Class only offers wireless charging as an option.

The 2021 S90 also comes with leading driver assist technology including a 12.3-inch digital display with Road Sign Information.

Volvo S90 performance specs

2021 Volvo S90 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Performance

Powerful performance is another area in which the Volvo can't be beat. The entry-level engine on the S90 is a turbocharged and supercharged 4-cylinder that generates a blistering 316 horsepower. The E-Class provides a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 that only makes 255 horsepower. For those interested in plug-in hybrid options, the S90 delivers that as well, with a T8 engine that boasts an incredible 400 horsepower. While all-wheel drive is optionally available on the E-Class, it comes standard on the S90, giving you better traction on wet, muddy, or unpaved roads.

Volvo S90 safety features

2021 Volvo S90 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Safety Features

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named both the S90 and the E-Class a 2021 Top Safety Pick+ so you have peace of mind sliding behind the wheel of either. But with solid safety features that the E-Class simply doesn't offer, the S90 cradles you and your family in security that you can trust. The S90 comes standard with the most advanced LED headlights available that come with Active Bending Lights and Thor's Hammer LED daytime running lights, making you the most visible car on the road. WHIPS® is a Volvo innovation that helps reduce the risk of whiplash or other injury in the event of a rear-end collision.
