Fresher S80s

VOLVO has freshened up the S80 range for the first time in nearly five years with a new look, new engine, new steering and adaptive chassis. From April the S80 will gain a dark 'square mesh' grille, optional rear parking sensors, chrome door handles and highlights, new aerodynamic door mirrors as well as smarter front and rear detailing.

The S80 will also have Volvo's Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept (Four-C) as used on the S60 R and V70 R, with comfort and sport settings. A new 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo engine (as used in the XC90 in some markets) will replace the 2.4T, offering more power and torque with no impact on fuel economy or emissions. New steering promises a more direct feel and sharper handling while dynamic stability control and traction control (DSTC) will now be fitted as standard.

Interior revisions include S60 R-type instruments on six-cylinder models, and XC90 detailing on five-cylinder cars, as well as a new premium sound system. First deliveries expected in early summer.
