2007 Volvo S80 | new car review

Posted on Jun 25, 2009 by

The top of ’s  S (Sedan) Range, the S80 follows the policy of being offered in no fewer than four sub-derivatives, Comfort, Premium, Prestige and either Sport or Executive packages. The basic differentiator between the S40, S60 and S80 are engines and performance, with the 40 being the least powerful and the 80 packing the biggest punch. Here is a comfortable, quiet, five seat midsize sedan by any standards. Pick the luxury level to suit your personal needs and pocket.

The is the second generation of Volvo’s large prestige sedan, launched at the Geneva motor show in spring 2006. The new S80 model is a luxurious car with an elegant and dynamic profile influenced by modern Scandinavian design.

A powerful V8 engine and a newly developed, particularly compact six-cylinder in-line engine provide performance and driving comfort of absolute top class. The V8 engine features Volvo’s electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive. An active chassis is available as an option, contributing to the car’s highly dynamic driving characteristics.  A new generation of driving and support systems together with a further-enhanced body structure and advanced interior safety systems all interact to contribute to the high level of safety, both preventive and protective.

The car has more sweeping lines than before, with a comet-shaped profile, an almost imperceptible transition between the rear window and the boot and an abruptly cut-off tail section.

The interior design is characterised by clean surfaces, harmonious lines, exciting contrasts and smooth function – expressions of Scandinavian design tradition that help forge a dynamic and harmonious interior atmosphere.
