The Volvo S80 is barely a blip on the automotive radar but that could change when the third-generation model is introduced.

Speaking to Autocar, an unnamed Volvo executive confirmed a new S80 is due in two or three years. They declined to elaborate but confirmed the stylish interior of the 2015 XC90 will be carried over to other models including the next S80.

Little is known about the redesigned sedan but it will likely borrow styling cues from recent concepts such as the Concept Coupe and Concept Estate. The car will likely ride on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) and be offered with a variety of fuel-efficient Volvo Environmental Architecture (VEA) four-cylinder engines.
