    Expert Rating

    4.8 (Excellent)
    22 City / 33 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2015 Volvo S80 OVERVIEW

    Volvo’s largest sedan continues to offer a pleasant motoring experience for buyers who might be turned off by flashier competitors. With a plush ride and conservative styling, it’s aimed squarely at the middle of the luxury market.

    What's New for 2015

    The front-drive S80 gets Volvo’s new Drive-E engine for increased efficiency and lower emissions.

    Choosing Your Volvo S80

    If you go with front-drive model, the 2-liter Drive-E comes standard along with a new eight-speed automatic with Eco and Sport modes. The turbocharged four-cylinder generates 240 horsepower and delivers 25 mpg around town and 37 mpg on the highway.

    All-wheel drive versions of the S80 continue with a turbocharged 3-liter V6 good for 300-horsepower and a six-speed automatic with manual shift mode.

    Trim levels are broken out by drivetrain:

    T4 Drive-E FWD:

    Comes fully equipped with a leather interior, dual power seats with driver memory, automatic wipers, heated mirrors, Bluetooth phone and audio, 17-inch alloy wheels, and an eight-speaker sound system with a six-CD changer, a USB interface, and satellite and HD radio.

    • W/ Premier Plus Package: Adds front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a quick-fold passenger seat and a grocery bag holder.
    • W/ Platinum Package: Includes the Premiere Plus equipment, plus navigation, ambient interior lighting, voice controls and 12-speaker surround sound.
    • W/ Climate Package: Equips the S80 with a cabin air filtration system and heated front and rear seats, steering wheel, windshield and washer nozzles.
    • W/ Technology Package: Comes with automatic high-beam control, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, speed limit information, and pedestrian and cyclist detection.

    T6 AWD Premier:

    Shares the T5's equipment and options with a few exceptions: 18-inch wheels and a sunroof come standard, and a lowered sport suspension with 19-inch wheels is available.

    You can equip any S80 with an upgraded leather interior, bi-xenon headlamps and a lane-departure warning system.

    CarsDirect Tip

    If efficiency ranks high on your list of must-haves, the T5 is the only way to go. If you're looking for performance, the T6 is your equally obvious choice.
