Accordingly, the pricing remains much the same as last year, with the 2014 S60's base price rising $500, from $31,900 to $32,400, to cover the updates. The S60 T6 R-Design starts from $42,700.
The changes that do come for the 2014 lineup are mostly focused on design updates. The 2014 S60 gets a redesigned front end, including a new hood, fenders, and nose; new LED tail lights and integrated exhaust pipes update the rear. The XC60 also gets an all-new front end and a $500 price increase to $34,850. Volvo's XC70 gets a new grille, updated front and rear trim, and a new tail light design. The 2014 XC70's price rises by $900 to $34,500. The XC90 gets no visual updates for 2014, and starts from the same price as last year at $39,700.
Volvo's S80 sedan gets a new front fascia and grille, new LED daytime running lights, and a new tail light design with LED graphics, plus a redesigned rear bumper. Pricing is up $800 to $39,900.
A new TFT instrument cluster display available in some models offers a choice of three different appearance themes, with different information highlighted for each. The "Elegance" mode yields a traditional look with a circular speedometer and secondary displays; the "Eco" mode gives a green background and an Eco meter; the "Performance" mode gets a red background and a central tachometer, with a digital speed readout, as well as a power meter.
Paddle shifters are also now available on T5 models, and standard on T6 AWD and R Design models, allowing manual gear selection with both hands on the wheel. The new shifters, combined with Advanced Quick Shift software, cut 0.2 seconds from the S60 T6 R-Design's 0-60 mph time, now at 5.3 seconds. The XC60 T6 R-Design gains 0.4 seconds, hitting 60 in 6.2 seconds for the 2014 model year.
