We are back to Volvo apparently. The Swedish carmaker continues with the improvement of some of its models. After the update of the S60, V60 and XC60, the carmaker continues with the 2014 model year S80 saloon, with the V70 estate and with its crossover sibling, the XC70. So that you know, the modifications we are about to mention are almost identical to the ones mentioned in the previous article. Even so, the new exterior design cues for the S80 and V70 now feature a wider front grille with chrome detailing set upon a restyled bumper. Moving on, at the back we have a new rear bumper, tailpipes and added chrome details, but also mew redesigned rear lights.
To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have fitted both models with 19-inch wheels. The other model, the XC70 features similar changes except for the different front grille, wheel arches, side panels and the black cladding on the bumpers.
Next we will stop for a while and talk about the biggest change for all three models. We are actually talking about the adoption of an Adaptive Digital Display for the instrument panel. We first had the opportunity to see it on the new V40. This has an active TFT and it allows drivers to choose from three different themes: Elegance, Eco and Performance. The list of modifications continues with fresh trim, upholstery colors and also with new equipment elements like for example the Sensus Connected Touch screen with a 7-inch display. This can even be used when wearing gloves. Moving on, the Volvo S80 and not only some with Active Beam Control and heated steering wheel and paddle shifters. All these modifications are part of the facelift process. The larger models also have some engine tweaks to improve both the CO2 emissions and the fuel efficiency.
