Volvo Car Malaysia will be launching the new 2021 Volvo S90 facelift, now wearing the new ‘Recharge’ badge, this coming Thursday (22-April). The updated S90 will compete with the forthcoming new G30 BMW 5 Series and new W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Like the recent Volvo XC40 Recharge, the new S90's launch will be conducted virtually on the company’s official social media channels.

Ahead of the launch, an anonymous reader sent us a photo of this registered 2021 Volvo S90, spotted on the road in PJ. Presumably, this unit belongs to Volvo Car Malaysia as dealers have yet to deliver any units to customers.

Only one photo was received but the sender noted that the car has dynamic turn signal lights, and that it looks really good on the road.

Individually, the changes are minor but when viewed as a whole, the sum styling updates have dramatically improved the S90’s road presence. The sender adds that on the road, the new S90 looks much better than the photos suggests.

The new Volvo S90 has already been launched in Thailand, exported from Volvo Car Manufacturing’s plant in Shah Alam.

The new facelifted S90 features revised headlights and tail lights, now with dynamic turn signals, new bumpers, and a new grille.

Inside, the upgraded Bowers and Wilkins audio system gets a new amplifier and automatic vehicle noise cancellation. There is also an Advanced Air Cleaner with a PM 2.5 particle filter. Inscription models get a new Orrefors crystal gear knob.

Mechanically, it remains unchanged so the T8 Recharge plug-in hybrid variant will retain the turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine, paired with electric motors generating a combined output of 407 PS and 640 Nm of torque.
