Geneva LIVE: 2014 Volvo S80

Volvo's flagship sedan has been given a modestly revised front end and a few high tech details inside for an early 2014 model year.

Although exact North American Volvo S80 specifications haven't been detailed, it's safe to assume that our model - which will likely bow later this month at the New York show - will be externally identical to its European brethren.

Emulating the style seen on the Volvo You concept shown at the 2011 Frankfurt show, the new S80 features a more organic front fascia than before. At the rear, only small revisions mark the new year. Also added to the options list are 19-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the S80 continues with most of the updates it received for the 2012 model year, but a trio of new screens located in the instrument cluster have been added for user-configurable gauge and trip computer functions. In addition, the automaker's Sensus infotainment system now offers full internet browsing (when the vehicle is stopped) and it doubles as a WiFi hotspot for connected devices. 

New ambient lighting and an optionally heated steering wheel are joined by additional leather upholstery and wood trim choices. 

On the powertrain front, the S80's 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder and 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six are unchanged.
