Absolutely incredible! Under the radar excellence
February 10, 2019
We have owned the following so you know what we are comparing the Volvo S80 T6 AWD:
1. Audi A8
2. Audi S4
3. BMW 535D
4. Genesis 5.0
5. Lexus LS430
6. BMW 328 Sport
7. MB E350 4Matic
And other high line over the years
We know what a good comfortable, insanely equipped, sporty, well made, reliable, fun, and classy sedan is.
The Volvo S80 T6 AWD is our favorite vehicle of every car we have owned. I can’t understand any reviews where there is any reference to the Volvo S80 T6 not be sporty, well handling, fun, and stuck to the road. Apparently this is a misnomer about the Volvo proliferated by some that really haven’t spent time driving the car. It is quieter than the Audi A8. It is as much fun as the S4. Ours is fully loaded and I can confidently say it’s technology is and was years ahead of its time.
The BLIS system works flawlessly.
The lane departure is nearly flawless.
The T6 3.0 AWD is quick. It will outrun just about anything on the road that isn’t a true sports vehicle.
The Dynaudio Premium Audio is the BEST stereo we have ever had in a vehicle when connected to uncompressed music. And, we have had Bose, Harman Kardon, Bowers and Wilkins, and Lexicon stereos. The Volvo stereo is the best! Hands down, nothing compares.
We average 27-29 MPG at 65-75 MPH on freeway and average 18-19 overall with city/freeway driving.
The Volvo S80 T6 AWD is a steal on the preowned market if you are patient and wait for a good one.
