The Volvo S80 is a premium luxury sedan that sells for a relatively affordable cost. Competing with the likes of BMW and Mercedes-Benz is difficult, but Volvo manages to produce stately vehicles with a restrained class and dignity that's almost too modest for its own good.
The S80 offers a choice between two engines: a somewhat staid 3.2 liter inline-6 that produces 240 horsepower in the 3.2 model, and a more impressive 300-horsepower turbocharged 3-liter six-cylinder in the T6. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard on both models. The 3.2 has front-wheel drive, while the T6 features all-wheel drive.Read more »

Most options are grouped in packages: a Climate Package adds heated front and rear seats, heated windshield washer nozzles, and an interior air quality system; a Technology Package adds adaptive cruise control; a collision-warning and pedestrian-detection system with automatic braking; a road-sign reading system with speed limit display; and a lane-departure warning system.
All Volvo S80 models and trim levels may purchase a stand-alone blind-spot monitor system.
The 3.2 Platinum adds to the 3.2 Premier Plus: a navigation system with voice control and real-time traffic; Volvo's premium 12-speaker sound system with surround sound; and a rear-parking assist camera.
In addition to standard features found on the base 3.2, the 3.2 Premier Plus has: an iPod cable, front and rear parking sensors, active dual xenon headlights, an integrated garage door opener and a digital compass.
