KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Editors - Updated Date: 9/4/2013

While the 2014 Volvo S80 is considered the company's flagship sedan, many people overlook it when cross shopping brands such as Lexus, Audi and BMW. That's unfortunate because, despite its aging architecture, the S80 is a lovely sedan with world-class luxury and safety features offered at very reasonable price. The S80's subtle styling will speak to those who don't like to shout about their success, and its many variations, including a turbocharged all-wheel-drive (AWD) model, offer something for everyone. The big Volvo's interior is also worthy of praise, with some of the most comfortable and supportive front seats in the business. The 2014 Volvo S80 can even tow up to 3,300 pounds, which is pretty phenomenal considering it isn't even an SUV.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're less impressed by fancy styling and over-hyped technology than you are safety, comfort and reliability, the 2014 Volvo S80 may very well be the luxury sedan for you. The turbocharged T6 trim brings new meaning to the term "sleeper."

You May Not Like This Car If...

The S80 is a very handsome car, but its more aging veteran actor than hot young star. If dynamic styling, a V8 engine or a dash that mimics a Best Buy display case all float your boat, the S80 won't.

What's New for 2014

Major changes for the 2014 Volvo S80 include a revised front face, new wheels, a new LCD instrument cluster with three different display settings, and a more aggressive pricing strategy. Notable option upgrades include cyclist detection to the Technology package, and a heated windshield and steering wheel for the Cold Weather package.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Volvo's S80 for 2014 has two distinct driving personalities. Go with the base 3.2 and you'll get a very comfortable, very smooth-riding car that delivers the kind of performance we suspect the most members of the car buying public would say is just fine. Get behind the wheel of the turbocharged T6 AWD, and it's a whole different story. Acceleration is rapid and the big sedan's demeanor in the turns becomes one of poised confidence. A quick-shift automatic transmission on the T6 delivers better response to throttle inputs, helping the S80 run from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds. Available only on T6 models, the Sport Chassis adds 19-inch wheels, a lower ride height and a stiffer suspension, but it also brings a much stiffer ride.

Favorite Features

At city-street speeds, if the system senses impending contact with a vehicle or other object, and the driver does not apply the brakes, the car will stop itself. While it's best for drivers to not be distracted in the first place, the City Safety system really can help.

Combining impressive maximum output with a fat, flat torque curve, the 2014 S80 T6 AWD's turbocharged engine puts out nearly as much power as the V8 offered a couple of years ago.
