This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The S80 offers luxury, interior comfort and a stylish body. The suspension is highly sophisticated. It offers a smooth ride and feels extremely stable on the highway. And Volvo's safety engineering leads the automotive world. Volvo builds four versions of the S80: 2.5T FWD, 2.5T AWD, T6, and T6 Premier. The 2.5T FWD is powered by the 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine that produces 208 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, driving the front wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission. The 2.5T AWD has most of the same features and option packages as the FWD but using all-wheel drive. The T6 comes with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter in-line six-cylinder making 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. It uses a four-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. The T6 Premier is the deluxe version of the S80, featuring soft leather seats, wood steering wheel, walnut interior trim and a DVD rear entertainment system with two seven-inch monitors mounted in the back of the front-seat headrests. The Volvo S80 is a carryover from 2005.
