Voluptuous And Safe Cars Sells - Volvo
Volvo dropped the square built of its cars in favor of something voluptuous. In the process, the automaker gained new purchasers however; it also disappointed other aficionados. Now that it has established new car trend, Volvo is positive that said metamorphosis would serve as a catalyst to make their car sell better in the industry.
S80 is an executive car, which is now the flagship car of the automaker. It was introduced in 1998 to replace S90. The brand new version is made sleeker and sexier by using curvaceous Volvo S80 parts. A tap on its safety features, driving capabilities and ergonomics was given to enhance its benefits to the occupants.
The new Volvo S80, which was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show, features a new 3.2 L straight-6 or 4.4 L V8 engine in combination with available all wheel drive. The new car is based on the EUCD platform. It uses some of Volvo S40 parts as well as that of Ford Focus to boost its total appeal to aficionados.
Volvo S80's interior is consistent with its predecessor. From the vinyl panel to brushed-aluminum inserts; it is basically almost the same. However, minor makeovers were made to door panels, optional steering wheel and navigation system. Further, S80's V8 engine and 6-cylinder are all first class auto parts. Volvo S80 mechanical engine parts are powered by the combination of Ford, Yamaha and Volvo's quality engines.
The exterior of S80 was subtly tweaked. It now comes with a new grille, taillights and reshaped side mirrors. Other minor modifications were also resorted to achieve the desired new fašade and feel of the flagship.
One of the must-have features of the car is Volvo's Personal Car Communicator (PCC) remote control, which can be used to check on the security level of the car and to ascertain whether the alarm was set or the car was locked. In addition, S80 also boasts its heartbeat sensor, which is said to work with the SOS feature of the car.
One enthusiast said that if the car owner's passion is more on safety, comfy and appealing automotive design, he will likely be pleased with the new S80 and so are other travelers.
