Video: Volvo’s new S80 replacement spied for first time, to be called S90

Volvo’s in the midst of overhauling their entire lineup to make way for a new generation of cars.

It first began with the arrival of the 2015 Volvo XC90 crossover, which was the oldest model in the make’s lineup. Next up: the replacement of the Volvo S80, which should be retired to make way for a new successor, named the S90.

That name might sound familiar because Volvo did make an S90 based off of the 900-Series models, or the last ever rear-wheel drive Volvos ever. It was later succeeded by the first-generation S80.

Now, it seems the first glimpse of the S90 surfaced with some new spy shots of the S90 test mule. Not much is known, but the S90 is supposed to share its engine lineup with the XC90, meaning the option for the same T8 Twin Engine hybrid powertrain that debuted on the XC90.

An arrival is due later this year while the S90 is scheduled to hit dealers in early 2016.
