Volvo S80 V8 Beats A Bmw 530 In Value And Performance For A Similar Price. — Great acceleration and braking. Best factory sound system i have heard. Great safety features and interior design. Not what most people expect from a Volvo, and priced well below premium european brands. Volvos last a lifetime, if you have a good dealership close by, and dont change cars every two years its a good option (volvos lose value more than the premium european brands)

Great Style, Premium Build Quality, Gorgeous Leather, Affordable Luxury And There Isn't One On Every — This is an overall great car, and a terrific deal for the quality. The V8 is fast and responsive, and the AWD system means it handles great in the worst weather. Get the premium audio which rivals the Harmon Kardon Logic 7 in my previous Range Rover.

S80 Driving On A Carpet Of Clouds — The S80 is the nicest car I've driven as company car, smooth, gorgeous, comfortable,... It's just a wonderful experienc to drive that car again and again, it's like it rides on clouds, just sit back relax and enjoy the high performance audio or premium sound. If you like a classy car without being an arrogant "me, myself and I" that's the car you re looking for!!!

Love That Car, It's Beautiful Very Comfortable And So Premium — At the moment I drive an S80 2.0 D, black metallic with beige leather, gps, bluetooth, high performance audio, really a dreamcar, off course a V8 is nicer but I'm happy with the 2.0 D. The years that I had to be the fastest on the road are in the past.
