From Volvo press: Building on great success in key markets, Volvo Cars' large and exclusive sedan model - Volvo S80 - blends a distinctive and elegant design, an exclusive interior, a sharp chassis and upgraded engine range The atmosphere inside is both more comfortable and luxurious, with a luxurious aura of craftsmanship.
Volvo S80 has been upgraded with the latest user-friendly Volvo Sensus infotainment system, enhanced technology that makes driving even safer and more comfortable, and refined drivelines that offer the combination of higher performance and lower fuel consumption.
On the outside the Volvo S80 gives a long, wide and broad impression. The grille's larger iron mark and the new brightwork (on the air intakes, the doors' lower parts and below the tail lamps) enhance the car's distinctive impression and give the front added presence. The headlamps, which are positioned lower than on the earliest S80 models, follow the curvature of the front and are extended along the side and up towards the bonnet, creating a gentle smile at the front.
The doors are convex and pronounced in shape. They include the rearmost side window. The sills have a distinct profile, creating a visually low centre of gravity and imparting a steady and stable appearance. In order to give the Volvo S80 the right aura of elegance and create an image of being in constant motion, the car has sweeping lines with a comet-shaped profile, an almost imperceptible transition between the rear window and the boot and a cut-off tail section. New exterior features in Model Year 2012 are the redesigned headlamps and LED turn indicators integrated into the door mirrors
