After the recent sightings of the refreshed S80 sedan and XC60 crossover in China, our scoop photographers landed these images of a prototype of the facelifted S60 saloon testing in northern Europe.
On the outside, the only part of the car that appears to change is the front end. While heavily camouflaged, we're guessing that Volvo will follow in the path of the 2014 S80 and XC60 discarding the inner set of lights positioned between the headlamps and the grille, which itself, will also obtain a different shape and new details, as will the front bumper.
The rear end of the prototype model remains intact, though, we wouldn't be surprised if the Swedish carmaker made some tweaks to the tail lights and the bumper design on the production variant.
As for the interior, the only change we see is the brand-new instrument cluster, which is identical in design to that of the new V40 compact hatch featuring a large tachometer positioned in the middle that incorporates a digital display for the speedometer.
Look for the updated S60 at Volvo dealers sometime next year.
