Volvo S80 vs. Volvo S80

A side-by-side comparison (including a morphing animation) between the old and the brand new Volvo S80. The modern design features clean lines, compact volumes and smoother surfaces.


As for the Z4 coupé and for the Alfa Romeo Brera, we made some Photoshop work to compare side-by-side the new Volvo S80 with its predecessor.

This time we added a small “morphing animation” in Flash to show how the old Volvo S80 “evolves” into the new model.

The new Volvo S80 looks like a more compact vehicle.

The surfaces are smoother and cleaner, even if the accented waist line edge
that gave a strong signature to the old S80 model was reduced and now blends into the side panels with a smaller curvature.

The front grille was extended to the bottom edge of the spoiler, which reminds of the Audi models.

As a result the new S80 looks more modern, more “solid” and maybe more “German”…
