Quoth the folks who requote the press releases at AutoGuide:
Buyers of the XC60 and S80 can equip their cars with the upgrade, known as the inscription package. It includes Inscription Sovereign Hide leather seats, a leather covered instrument panel, wood inlays, and an embroidered Inscription logo along with unique floor mats. Three different paint finishes, crystal white pearl, electric silver or ember black, are available with the package along with 19- or 20-inch ten spoke wheels.
The package won’t affect performance, but Volvo also announced that every vehicle in its lineup can now be had with a Drive-E engine. This lineup of four-cylinder engines use turbocharging or a combination of turbocharging and supercharging to deliver equivalent power to today’s larger engines, all while being more efficient.
In the U.S., the Drive-E lineup consists of a a 2.0-liter I4 producing 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter making 302 hp and 295 lb-ft.
I just checked the Volvo Configurator for the United States and the Inscription package isn’t yet available. I’d spent a lot of time on there when I was choosing my current car — the S80 was kind of a weird dark horse in my selection matrix — and it doesn’t look like anything’s changed since then. It’s still easy as pie to drop fifty grand on an S80 without it, however. As long as you believe in the company and its mission, that’s probably okay.
