You might think that it looks uncannily like the current version – and you’d be right – but Volvo insist they have introduced a plethora of small changes to their S80 executive saloon that all add up to a significant difference.
There’s a new-look front grille with larger badge, and the excitement doesn’t end there . . . there is also new chrome detailing on the air intakes, the lower doors and under the tail lamps.
The inside, too, has been zapped up a bit, and three new diesel engines have been added to the options. Volvo also promise better fuel consumption and fewer emissions. It will be in our showrooms this summer.
MM verdict: Volvo loyalists will be happy with it.
