2000 Volvo S80

There were no significant changes for Volvo's flagship S80 lineup this year. A new option group made rear sun-blocking curtains available this year.  

The S80 is available in two trim levels: the 2.9 and the T6. The lower level 2.9, as the name indicates, is powered by a 2.9-liter inline six cylinder engine. This power plant generates 197 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. Gas mileage for the 2.9 is estimated at 18/26 mpg.  The T6 houses a turbocharged 2.8-liter inline six, supplying 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The EPA estimate falls to 17/25 mpg with this extra power. Both engines are paired with a four-speed automatic transmission.

This flagship Volvo ranges in price from the mid-30s to the low 40s, but features are commensurate with the cost. Both models include the luxury essentials like dual-zone automatic air conditioning, cruise control, eight-way power front seats, a driver seat memory, heated power mirrors and keyless entry. The upper level T6 adds a few  features and performance upgrades, and options on both models include Dynamic Stability Traction Control, a navigation system, a sunroof, CD changer, and an infrared-reflective windshield.

Consumers list passenger and cargo room, durability, safety, and performance among the S80's top features. The T6 speeds from 0 to 60 mph in about seven seconds, and test drivers report no significant turbo lag when accelerating off the line. The base 2.9 rides a little rocky at higher speeds, while the T6's sport suspension may be a bit intrusive on some uneven services.

Inside, the S80's cabin is well-shielded from wind and engine noise, and the controls and gauges are clearly marked and easy to operate.
