Volvo's S80 saloon has all the hallmarks you expect from the Swedish carmaker – a sophisticated design, industry-leading safety and masses of advanced technology.
The model has been carefully shaped inside and out to please the eye, and the exterior attracts attention with a sweeping bonnet, narrowed headlamps and a bold rear light arrangement. Alloy wheels and a chrome front grille increase the sense of elegance, which is also felt inside. There's leather-faced upholstery that's soft to the touch, alongside polished wood accents resting next to brushed aluminium inlays. The cockpit is also where you will find Volvo's most recent innovations close to hand.
There are three trim grades of SE Nav, SE Lux and Nav. The entry-level SE Nav includes Sensus Connect, which comprises an Adaptive Digital Display that projects information on drive modes, navigation and other functions. There's also integrated Bluetooth® for hands-free calls and a crisp DAB digital radio to entertain.
The car's most famous features are its safety systems, which Volvo has developed a deserved reputation for constantly progressing. The IntelliSafe suite combines City Safety with Collision Warning, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) to keep the saloon stable and help you avoid collisions.
The S80 is available with a choice of three diesel engines, each boasting enhanced refinement and performance. The D4 produces 178bhp and pulls confidently, emitting just 104g/km of CO2 in the process. The 113bhp D2 couples with Volvo's Powershift transmission - an automatic box that delivers smooth and instant changes, while the third option – the D5 Geartronic - is the most powerful with 212bhp.
