New Volvo S80

Volvo’s S80 is a very well-built and spacious saloon, with plenty of safety measures


In spite of its age, the Volvo S80 is a great-looking car, if not the most exciting. Sleek lines grace the S80’s bonnet, whilst a similar feature marks the side of the car, giving it the impression of being lower-set. The understated lighting and grille formation gives the Volvo a quiet sophistication that looks great without coming off as too exuberant. Inside the S80, the cabin is laid out ergonomically, with switchgear being easy to reach and adjustable seats that allow both the driver and passengers to get comfortable quickly.


With responsive, tight body controls, the Volvo S80 is easy to manoeuvre, and possesses a surprising amount of agility. Progressive braking is nicely measured, and goes a way to help refinement – the ride is quite absorbent, even when cruising through town, and motorway travel is even better, with great stability and whisper quiet noise levels. The entire S80 engine range is more than capable, with the petrol units packing a real punch, providing plenty of torque early on. The diesel engines however are somewhat more balanced, with more gradual acceleration in exchange for shrunken fuel emissions. The entry level S80 models all come with climate control, cruise control and an MP3 stereo, whilst you can expect sat-nav, xenon headlights and rear parking sensors by upgrading to the SE trim. The Sensus infotainment system is a handy piece of hardware, and can be customised to display secondary instrumentation or a selection of functions such as a digital TV or telephone.

Safety & Economy

Volvo’s reputation for safety means the S80 makes use of airbags, stability control, anti-whiplash restraints, blind-spot warning, adaptive cruise control and the city safety system.


Perfect for Fleets, Executives and Families Volvo’s strength lies within its Diesel engines, which enables the S80 to be incredibly frugal with its fuel consumption. The space, comfort and refinement is perfect for businesses and families.
