2016 Volvo S80 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The five-seat S80 is Volvo’s flagship full-size sedan. It was mildly restyled in 2014 and competes with the Acura RLX, Audi A6 and Hyundai Genesis sedan.
New for 2016
Volvo has trimmed the S80 lineup, eliminating the turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and all-wheel-drive option. Remaining is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Heated front seats, 18-inch alloy wheels and a power moonroof are now standard.
Significant Standard Features

  • 240-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with stop-start technology
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Power moonroof
  • LED daytime running lights
  • Leather upholstery
  • Power front seats
  • Walnut trim 
  • Configurable digital gauge cluster
  • Multimedia system with 7-inch screen
  • City Safety collision avoidance system
  • Required in every new car: front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system

I love my Volvo!

Car drives great, most comfortable seats I have ever had in a car. Interior quality is good and car has not broken down in 4 years and 80K miles. Have always been a Toyota person but I have been converted to a loyal Volvo owner.

5.0

Nicest car I ever owned

Car has all the bells and whistles.All the safety features you could ever need and gets great gas mileage. Very comfortable to drive and great sound system.

5.0

My 4th Volvo & The Best of All

I've owned 3 Volvos before this one & drove each 1mto around 150K moles or more without any (repeat: ANY) mechanical problems of any kind. My new S80 now has 24K miles & is the best one yet. It gets 37+ mpg on the road, 24+ mpg around town is comfortable to ride in and an easy delight to drive. Volvo & it's dealers really take care of you & are also delightful to deal with. I can afford whatever car I choose but for almost 50 years it's been nothing but Volvos. I've never been disappointed.
