 New Volvo S80 coming in two or three years - report

2014 Volvo S80 19.2.2013

Will feature a high-end interior

The Volvo S80 is barely a blip on the automotive radar but that could change when the third-generation model is introduced.

Speaking to Autocar, an unnamed Volvo executive confirmed a new S80 is due in two or three years. They declined to elaborate but confirmed the stylish interior of the 2015 XC90 will be carried over to other models including the next S80.

Little is known about the redesigned sedan but it will likely borrow styling cues from recent concepts such as the Concept Coupe and Concept Estate. The car will likely ride on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) and be offered with a variety of fuel-efficient Volvo Environmental Architecture (VEA) four-cylinder engines.

Spy Shots: 2017 Mercedes E-Class Mule Caught Testing

It’s been only a month since the first report about the next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class surfaced the Interwebz, and it appears the Germans have already began working on the redesigned sedan. The big news comes via our spy photographers stationed in Germany, who have spotted a strange-looking mule near the Nurburgring track.

We say “strange-looking” because the vehicle depicted in the images we just received in our inbox is a half-camouflaged C-Class that’s not exactly the compact sedan we’re already familiar with. It might look like a regular C-Class at first glance, but a closer inspection reveals the body is longer and wider than it should be. What’s more, the engine is stuffed under a longer hood and the wheel arches hidden under the swirly wrap are slightly beefier.

This leads us to believe we’re actually looking at the next-generation E-Class, which we expect to arrive for the 2017 model year. Although it’s at least two years away, we’re not at all surprised to see it on public streets already. The sedan is in for a brand-new platform and a host of new technologies, all of which require months, if not years, of development and testing.
