Not bad for a refresh. Let's hope it gets more power.
Yep. Optional V8 from the XC90(Yamaha engine) and new V6 engines as well. Turbo and N/A.Quote:

Looks okay, not "stylish" per se, but not ugly.
Those wheels are ugly~!
Very nice!! I may have to put it back on my list of "next cars to buy."
According to Swedespeed and AutoWeek, the new S80 should have some great engine choices.
Roofline reminds me a bit with the Mercedes CLS and the headlights are Audi A4 esque. But that's OK with me; I like these two cars and I always liked the Volvo S80.
Overall it looks nice and the engine choices are very good. Finally Volvo will have a serious contender against the BMW 5-Series. The new Saab 9-5 better watch out...
Eh, I've never been a fan of Volvo and their styling, it looks boring and outdated. I hope they redesign some cars and put a modern twist.
Looks promising, although I again can't help wondering if Ford's rededication to Jaguar and Volvo will hurt Lincoln and Mercury's chances of revival via internal competition.
V6s? What kind? And why was the straight six dropped when the fives have been moaning for retirement? :pQuote:

That front end is looooooooooonnnnnnnnnggg.
