2013 Volvo S80 – The Volvo S80 is the largest vehicle offered by Swedish car maker that a traditional four-door sedan rather than a crossover utility vehicle. In keeping with the brand’s quiet, safe approach, the focus is on providing technology and luxurious comfort rather than pavement-ripping performance. While competing at the lower trim levels of the German cruisers like as Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Volvo carries a slightly lower entry price than vehicles. It faces off more directly against comparable equipped models of Acura, Cadillac, and perhaps Lincoln, as well as the inevitable Lexus.

Today’s S80 was introduced for the 2007 model year.  Volvo offered a low-volume variation with a transverse V-8 engine  produced 311 hp from its 4.4 liters. But the fuel efficiency regulations and the economic downturn killed off the V-8 Volvo, and the largest engine is a sporty 281-hp, 3.0-liter turbo six. This is optional; standard engine is a 235-horsepower 3.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The S80, while sportier than the previous generation, is even more of a big cruiser than a sports sedan. It prefers sweeping corners too tight canyon turns. Its highly supportive front seats, though, enables drivers and their passengers to rack up hundreds of miles a day and without having to be printed out and feel achy.

Even compared to some cars today the first generation S80s offered a level of safety as well or better than any other big sedan. All S80 models included side airbags and active front head restraints, while electronic stability control is not fitted to all models. Top-of-the-line T6 models have stability control, but in a decline of the “nuclear safety” Volvo philosophy, that feature was optional on other S80 models.
