2014 Volvo S80 is arguably one of Volvo’s most upgraded cars for this model year. Unlike its other sibling, Volvo S80 is never been really popular. In fact, it is the rarest Volvo you can see on the street. With the new look, the new 2014 Volvo S80 aims to provide their customers with updated technology, better quality and more sophisticated design. Luxury is also one of the main concerns of Volvo’s image, so the new S80 would also get the luxurious features commonly found in Volvo’s lineup.
New Features of 2014 Volvo S80
The exterior of the 2014 Volvo S80 does not differ much from its previous model except that it now looks wider both in the front and in the rear end due to the redesigned bumpers. The body also appears somehow longer, making the car looks more luxurious. The daytime running lights at the front face of the S80 are shaped as trapezoids and there are new taillights at its rear. A new feature called Active High Beam Control is also included to automatically change from low to high beam for better driving visual at night.
The interior of the 2014 Volvo S80 is filled with luxurious and new features. There are the heated paddle shifters, windshield and steering wheel in addition to the heated seats. The infotainment is centered in the 7-inch display that utilizes Volvo’s new Sensus Connected Touch that allows people to operate them even with gloves. The display is also packed with Human Machine Interface and it could connect to the internet via cell phone’s Wi-Fi or USB modem.
Under the Hood of 2014 Volvo S80
The 2014 Volvo S80 redesign is powered by choices of diesel and petrol engines with high mileage. In the US, though, the options available are only the 3.2 liter six-cylinder or the 3.0 liter turbocharged six-cylinder. They produce 240 horsepower on 236 lb/ft torque and 300 horsepower on 325 lb/ft of torque respectively. Both options for the 2014 Volvo S80 are available with six-speed automatic transmission.
