    Spied: 2008 Volvo V70's S80 Interior

    Spied: 2008 Volvo V70's S80 interior



    When we brought you the first spy photos of the next-generation Volvo V70/XC70 earlier this month, it was clear the vehicle would take some inspiration from the recently introduced 2007 S80. Now, a new spy photo shows the wagon's interior will be almost to that of the S80. This apparent alignment of the V70 and S80 lines comes as a surprise, since the V70 is typically thought of as a wagon version of the S60, not the larger S80. The implications of this discovery are unclear, but it seems to add credibility to rumors about the demise or re-positioning of the S60.

    If you check out the actual picure the center stack is real interesting! It seems almost as a flat peice standing on its own. Not a whole peice with the center stack only connecting at the bottom and top (most likely for the CD player). Alot of space behind the controls, seems more futuristic.

    Neat looking interior. Though I'm not liking that enormous hump over the IP.

    Ugh yeah. Otherwise it's very clean... hopefully that's something prototype. Though the first-gen C70 coupe had an awful speaker plopped right there on the dash.

    I like the center stack too Tiburon... very unique and appealing.

    I don't like the long, squarish piece of trim they use in a lot of their interiors. Feels very 80s.

    Good looking interior. I ckecked the link for the exterior shots. The camoflauge has a BMW grille and Holden Monaro headlamps. The entire car is covered in bulbous black plastic so it looks like Darth Vader's car.

    Making the next S60 a CLS-swoopy sportsedan is a no brainer imho.

    But I wonder about the V70/XC70/XC90... consolidation? Recently I read the coming XC50 has been re-christened XC60 - maybe the XC's are going even numbered?

    ps a S100 flagship is another no brainer!

    I like the S60 idea, but the S100 is a no-no - Volvo customers were never status buyers ... it would gothe way of Phaeton - even though the VW abnd Volvo brands are different, their customers are quite similar - a high status symbol luxury flagship would not be appreciated by the diehards.

    IMO

    ^^ I was referring mainly to size. A quick google shows the new S80 is only 190.9" long, about the same as a MkZep or ES.

    1: probably, but I am not sure (have not heard either way, so I assume status quo)
    2: it's fine - unless you are buying a 3 year old LR, you have nothng to worry about
    3: nope - PAG operates largely separately .. especialyl from Ford NA, which is the only division of FoMoCo which has trouble with the balance. the Platform is European developed, the engine is Volvo's own
    4: does it cost 50grant? I thought Volvo's were cheaper.
