2016 Volvo S80 MODEL OVERVIEW

New for 2016

Heated seats and 18-inch alloy wheels are now standard on the 2016 Volvo S80. There's only a single powertrain option in the 2016 S80 because the 300-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 has been discontinued. As a result, all-wheel drive is also no longer available.

Vehicle Summary

The 2016 Volvo S80 is a front-drive midsize luxury sedan that slots above the compact S60 luxury sports sedan. A replacement, rumored to be called the S90 and its wagon counterpart the V90, is projected to be revealed sometime in late 2015 or early 2016.

Overview

A turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 with 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque from Volvo's new range of Drive-E powertrains is the only engine available. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the only gearbox available. Fuel economy is excellent thanks to the new powertrain, enabling the S80 to achieve up to 25/37 mpg city/highway.

There's generous space for four passengers in the 2016 S80; however, it's not as roomy as some competitors like the BMW 5 Series and Acura RLX. Trunk space is generous, with up to 14.9 cubic feet of cargo space that's expandable via the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats. The S80 also has an available folding front passenger seat, which is part of the Convenience package in base models and standard on the Platinum trim, enabling it to accommodate surfboards and other long items.

Safety

In addition to the standard dual front airbags, front-side airbags, and side curtain airbags for both rows of seating, the 2016 S80 also comes with front seats that offer whiplash protection and hill launch assist. City Safety, Volvo's autonomous braking system that uses radar to detect obstacles in front of the car, comes standard. When the Technology package or Platinum trim is selected, a host of safety and driver assistance features is added, including adaptive cruise control with queue assist and distance alert, lane keeping assist, lane departure, and an upgraded City Safety system that adds pedestrian and cyclist detection with full auto brake. Blind spot warning is a standalone option in the base S80 and standard on the Platinum trim level.

Trims, Packages, and What's Standard

Base S80 models come standard with Bluetooth, an infotainment system with a seven-inch screen, split-folding rear seats, navigation, LED daytime running lights, power front seats with driver's side memory, 18-inch alloy wheels, and leather upholstery. The range-topping Platinum trim adds a Harman/Kardon premium audio system, active HID headlights, the Technology package, and the Convenience package, which includes a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, a grocery bag holder, and the folding front passenger seat. The Climate package is available on both trim levels and comes with heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a heated windshield, heated windshield wiper nozzles, and an interior air quality system.

Volvo offers the Inscription package for those looking to make their S80 even more luxurious. This package adds Sovereign Hide soft leather upholstery, ventilated seats, Inscription floor mats and kick plates, and a leather covered dashboard. There are also two Inscription colors available Ember Black Metallic, and Crystal White Pearl.

Cool Fact

The S80 was one of the first cars to receive Volvo's trademark waterfall center console after it debuted in the second-generation S40 and its V50 wagon counterpart.
