Performance

The S80 features an all improved suspension for the driver’s comfort. At the same time the car has been lowered by a few centimeters, while downforce has increased, making it stable at high speeds and tight cornering.

Exterior

The new generation of S80 models will feature a brand new front and rear bumper that have been stretched to create a visual effect that makes the car seem wide and lower.

Looking at the front of the nose, it has been changed to incorporate more fluid lines while the headlights have been changed with rectangular ones. Volvo designed the car to fit 19 inch wheels which is a new feature to the series.

Interior

Looking at the S80 from the inside, the visual aspect experienced some changes. The seats are covered in leather while the gearshift handle has been covered with chrome elements.

On the driver’s side, the manufacturers went for digital gauges, right behind the chromed driving wheel. Chrome elements can be seen throughout the entire interior of the car.

Multiple design changes in the 2014 Volvo S80 has been combined with its improved gas mileage and driver comfort.
