Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Touting "Scandinavian luxury" as its defining attribute, Volvo's flagship sedan combines traditional Volvo lines with high-tech safety features typical of the brand. The S80 seats five, and all-wheel drive is available. Competitors include the Acura TL and Audi A6. New for 2013 Volvo adds standard headlight washers, rain-sensing windshield wipers and push-button start to the S80. In addition, the Premium Plus trim gains adaptive xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights. Exterior Volvo says Scandinavian luxury is accessible, elegant and intelligent without being elitist. Volvo has shaken the boxy look it made famous by giving the S80 a curvier, sleeker appearance with a slightly sportier profile, yet still an unmistakably Volvo design. Exterior features include:
Available 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels
Standard power-operated heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals
Standard rain-sensing windshield wipers
Standard headlight washers
Optional heated windshield-washer nozzles
Optional xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights with articulating lenses
Interior The S80's center controls sit on a thin metal panel pioneered in the S40 compact sedan. Luxurious touches include optional real wood trim with a wood-accented steering wheel. The back bench has a standard 60/40-split folding function for increased cargo capacity. Interior features include:
Standard leather-wrapped steering wheel, shifter and brake handle
Standard Bluetooth connectivity
Optional heated front and rear seats
Optional ventilated front seats
Optional leather-covered dashboard
Optional navigation system with real-time traffic info
Under the Hood In 2011, Volvo cut back on the number of engine and drivetrain combinations available and has stuck with that plan since. Mechanical features include:
240-horsepower, 3.2-liter six-cylinder (3.2)
300-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder (T6)
Six-speed automatic transmission
Front-wheel drive for 3.2, all-wheel drive for T6
Safety Available safety features include a blind spot warning system, which checks adjacent lanes for unnoticed cars, a collision warning system that monitors the speed of traffic ahead and warns the driver of an impending rear-end collision, and pedestrian detection with automatic braking. Other safety features include:
Standard side-impact and side curtain airbags
Standard electronic stability system
Standard antilock brakes with hydraulic brake assist
Standard City Safety accident avoidance system
Optional adaptive cruise control
Optional lane departure warning system
