Volvo said it plans to debut major changes to its current model lineup at the Geneva Auto Show in Europe, including the latest editions of the automaker’s S80 sedan and XC70 crossover.

For 2014, Volvo changed a number of exterior and interior design elements in the S80, including new front and rear bumpers, new rectangular daytime running lights up front, and optional 19-inch wheels. Chassis types include Comfort and Lowered Sport Chassis if the buyer selects the 19-inch wheels. Inside, the S80 Inscription model offers more upholstery options, including leather seats.

The 2014 XC70 Crossover features exterior design changes, including a new front grille, daytime running lights, and silver matte accents. The vehicle also comes with improved off-road elements, such as skid plates and an extended front area below the belt line that helps protect the front fog lights. The automaker added it redesigned the rear fog lights and that the tailgate is power operated.

Inside, the rear seats can fold down into three separate 40/20/40 segments. They can also all fold flat to increase cargo room from 20.3 cu. ft. to 56.5 cu. ft. The rear seat also allows for the connection of double two-stage child seats.

Other features that both vehicles share include the optional Sensus Connected Touch, Volvo’s new infotainment platform an adaptive digital display with three graphic themes; enhanced ambient lighting inside; a new gearshift knob on vehicles with the piano-black inlay; a heated windshield and optional heated steering wheel; Volvo’s IntelliSafe advanced safety system; Pedestrian Detection with full automatic braking (it activates the brakes when it detects a pedestrian in the car’s path); standard City Safety technology, which works at speeds up to 31 mph; and road sign information that shows up on the instrument panel.
