Model release date
Because of the fact that the Renault Safrane II's production started only 1 year prior to the Volvo, the gap between technology applied in both vehicles shouldn’t be really big, however, the Volvo V90 may feature slightly more modern solutions used in it.
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of boarding it and greater possibility of carrying big amount of stuff to it. The difference that amounts to 17 mm to the advantage of the Volvo V90 3.0 24V 180HP is little and should not be really noticeable.
