    Not bad for a refresh. Let's hope it gets more power.

    I hope the front end is more stylish then the side view of the headlight suggests. it looks like the last-gen Escort to me. The rest of the car is tasty... I really dig the Volvo 'hips'... with luck the nose is as sharp as the rest.

    Looks okay, not "stylish" per se, but not ugly.

    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    Eh, I've never been a fan of Volvo and their styling, it looks boring and outdated.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? :p

    This is looking really nice! It has a sleek and elegant shape that I love. What a change from the original homely S80. I always preferred the S60, but after seeing this, I think the S80 will actually look better when it comes out.
