Volvo announced today that it has updated its S80 sedan. The 2010 Volvo S80 gets refreshed exterior styling, an upgraded interior and sharper chassis and an updated engine range.

“We are ready to give the competition a tough match. With the new S80, we’re placing the bar at the very highest level when it comes to exclusiveness, quality and driving properties,” says Volvo Cars President and CEO Stephen Odell.

In the U.S., the 2010 Volvo S80 will be offered with a 3.2L inline 6, the turbocharged T6 3.0L inline 6 and the top-of-the-range 311-hp 4.4L aluminum V8. The T6 and V8 models will come with Volvo’s Instant Traction AWD system as standard.

The 2010 S80 will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week with U.S. sales to start in the second half of 2009. Pricing details will be announced closer to launch.
