Exterior of Volvo S80 2016
Exterior-wise, the 2016 Volvo S80’s front and rear bumpers have received a “stretch” effect, making the vehicle look lower and wider.
The rectangular Daytime Running Lights at the front part give it a modern and trendy look, whereas the traditional Volvo rear lights visually keep the car “grounded”. The S80 is equipped with 19” wheels with no loss of comfort. But it will also include new wheels – 17”, 18” and 19”.
The customers will be offered the choice between three chassis types – Comfort, Lowered Sport Chassis and Four-C (Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept).
