- Volvo S80 facelift launched in India at 41.35 Lakh INR
Volvo Auto India, the Indian subsidiary of Geely-owned Swedish car maker launched the 2014 S80 facelift in India today.
It may be noted that the S80 sedan is the oldest model in the car maker’s model line up and while its new crop of vehicles, such as the very tasty looking S60 sedan, have a very dynamic styling to speak of, the S80 boasts of understated looks that appear to be dull for many. With the facelift, the car maker has tried to infuse some freshness with the car to enable it to soldier on until the advent of the all new model next generation S80 in 2015. The next gen Volvo S80 will be based on Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) and will sport Volvo’s Drive-e four cylinder engines.
The D4 variant is priced at 41.35 lakhs and the D5 variant is priced at 44.8 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
The S80 facelift made its debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The car took a whole year to reach us. Currently, Volvo S80 puts to use ex partner Ford’s architecture and engines.
The new 2014 Volvo S80 D4 gets the 2.0-liter inline five-cylinder diesel engine, which produces 163 hp @ 3,500 rpm and 400 Nm of peak torque. The higher trim, S80 D5 gets a 2.4-liter inline five pot motor, which produces 215 hp at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of peak torque.
The car will be sold in India via the CBU route. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more details on the Volvo S80 facelift.
