Would you believe that the Volvo XC70 and S80 have received a facelift for 2012? Well, looking at the photos we’re not sure we would either. With styling cues so imperceptibly tweaked, Volvo insists the cars actually have new headlights. Plus, they get some new color options.

Inside the changes are more dramatic, with both vehicles getting Volvo’s Sensus infotainment system, currently on offer int he S60. It’s hardly the most user-friendly setup on the market, but it does allow for operation of everything from audio, to nav to Bluetooth and lets you control the City Safety, Collision Warning and Active Cruise Control.

City Safety is now standard on both models, plus Pedestrian Detection is also included that will warn you if the vehicle thinks a collision is about to occur.

Browse through the galleries below and see if you can spot how the 2012 models differ from the 2011s. OK, maybe skip those pics, but definitely check out the new interiors!
