Volvo S90 Hertz rental

Comparing my 2018 TLX/A-SPEC/SH-AWD, to the above was interesting
1st & foremost, the steering in the TLX, is much sportier;(stiffer)
Volvo engine, & tranny are stronger
Navigation, & entertainment, took some getting used to; (swiping the screen)
Volvo back seat was very roomy
Overall, I like my A-SPEC better; especially for the price
All in all, an interesting rental, although the Hertz team should brief the driver on essentials

I like the looks of the S90 though it seems pretty pricey.

Steering feel is important to me - I'm OK w/the transmission + power of the TLX, since I learned that I need to turn off Traction Control if I want to override the Acura Engineer's stupidly wussy programming - come on guys (whoever programmed ECU/TCU/Throttle Response etc on TLX), did you seriously think only grandmas were going to buy TLXs? Because that's how it feels when you drive them with Traction Control turned on! I wish I could replace the TLX's "Drive By Wire" with a good old steel cable linking the pedal to the air intake valve, so If I want 100% throttle in 1/10th of a second, that's what I get, not what they think is best. If I'm the driver, I want to be in control.
