I love it. The only thing I don't like is that I see a lot of Jaguar XF in it, except it looks a lot better. I think what I love most is how much consistency the design has. It has so much flow and looks has looks classy but sporty at the same time.

Gonna agree here. I actually didn't notice the XF so much until you pointed it out. There's actually a huge resemblance, especially from the rear 3/4. I like the design, but ten bucks says they won't build anything close to it.

Volvo needs to change their stupid grille. I hate the diagonal line and the huge, bland, clunky badge. The inner headlights look like a piece from the new E Class.

Beautiful car, hope they build something even remotely close to that.

300+hp V8 from the S80 would be a good start. That and their signature high pressure turbo I5 that can be tuned to ~400hp.

+1! I hate that stupid badge thing. It makes the car look like a toy or something. Very odd grille/badge combo. Also I noticed the E-class headlights.
