Some things, take a while. The last time we saw pics from the facelifted Volvo S80L was back in January but the new car hasn’t made it to the market yet. The facelift includes a new bumper, new grille, new lights at front an on the back and an updated interior.

Spy Shots: facelifted Volvo S80L for China

The Volvo S80L is stretched by some 15 centimeters compared with the European S80. It is made in China by the Chang’an-Volvo joint venture that also still makes the good old S40 sedan. The joint venture dates back to Volvo’s Ford days and will likely be disbanded within 5 years. Volvo’s new owner Geely has plans to make the Volvo S60 and XC60 in China, production will start around 2015.

The current S80L is powered by a 2.0 turbo or the 3.0 V6. Chinese media report today that the 2.0 turbo will be replaced by a 2.5 liter five-cylinder when the facelifted S80L hits the market. This is interesting news but a bit strange because Volvo is phasing out the five-cylinders, but in China an old engine can stay young for many a year more…
