2016 Volvo S80 What's new for 2016? 
2016 Volvo S80

The AWD T6 is dropped from the lineup, leaving only the front-wheel-drive T5 to carry on the S80 banner. The T5 gains new 18-inch wheels, heated front seats, a power moonroof and the interior air-quality system as standard. The Platinum trim gains BLIS, power retractable side mirrors and HID headlights with washers.

After receiving a visual and technology upgrade last year, the 2015 Volvo S80's biggest change is at the bottom of the lineup. Front-wheel-drive S80 models get a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder connected to a new 8-speed automatic transmission. Offering better fuel economy and more power, it's a win-win.

For 2013, the Volvo S80 gets only minor upgrades to its equipment, including rain-sensing wipers and keyless entry and starting. The Premier Plus trim package now includes active dual-xenon headlights, and the Technology Package has Road Sign Information, which detects important approaching signs and displays them on the driver-information monitor.

2012 Volvo S80 models benefit from a new interior panel that houses Volvo's Sensus system, which acts as a command center for audio, navigation and other functions and displays information on a 7-inch color screen. The other big news for 2012 S80 models is that they now come standard with City Safety, an ingenious system that automatically stops the car at lower speeds if it senses the driver is distracted and fails to brake ahead of a potential frontal collision.

A new PZEV (Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle) 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine is offered, touting lower emissions but also 10 less horsepower than the non-PZEV 3.2-liter engine. Subtle visual updates grace the S80's front end and interior, while the V8-powered model gains speed-sensitive steering, a Dynaudio Surround Sound audio system and Dual Xenon Active Bending headlamps.

The exclusive Executive Package is made standard on the V8 and a lesser-contented version is made optional on the T6 AWD.

The new, turbocharged, all-wheel-drive T6 model adds a more-affordable performance-oriented alternative to the S80 lineup. All versions get modest interior and exterior trim enhancements, the most notable being the addition of Volvo's Personal Car Communicator security package to the V8 AWD as standard equipment.

About Volvo S80

Volvo's S80 luxury sedan for 2016 may not be the first car buyers look to when shopping this segment, but it definitely deserves a look. Yes, the S80 is aging and doesn't have the looks and latest features of cars like the Hyundai Genesis, but it is still a Volvo. For those who appreciate the subtlety of Scandinavian styling and Volvo's long commitment to safety, the S80 will likely come as a pleasant alternative. Dig beneath the S80's surface and you'll find a big sedan with a modern 4-cylinder turbocharged engine and some of the most comfortable front seats in the business. All-wheel drive (AWD) is no longer on the table for 2016, a fact that may eliminate the S80 from some shopping lists.

Keeping this until it dies

"Bought the vehicles for city driving after it served as a dealer service loaner with 5k miles. It has not disappointed me. My second Volvo, plan on keeping this one until it dies. Now with 41,000 miles, bought tires, done basic service, but no major problems, service, or recalls. I gave Performance "4 stars" for "good", but the 3.2 I bought is perfect for my driving habits. It is not about performance for me. That is why they make a turbo. Drives great in snow, ice, rain, and dry conditions. Love the BLIS (blind spot warning lights) in traffic. The climate package and rubber floor mats are a must for northern climates. Gas mileage has been 17mpg in city, 25 on highway, but 30 if I drive 65mph. Great basic stereo. I rear ended a SUV at idle speed and suffered a minimal surface scratch to the front end. The SUV needed $1,100 in repairs. Negatives: For a family of five, wish it had more interior and trunk room on longer road trips. But that's not why we bought it. I would recommend the '08 S80!"

Pros: "Price, good ride, great safety features."

Cons: "Nothing yet."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Bought this car (2103) as an Executive Demo with ~6K on it. Had a minor issue with the Parking Sensors requiring service - Ened up being a loose cable - but other than that its been great. This vehicle came fully loaded. It is very comfortable and has adequate HP. It's the T6 AWD. New England winters require that. Best features I like are the BLIS and Lane Departure Warning System. The ride is outstanding and is very comfortable on longer rides. Cannot comment on reliability yet."

Pros: "Comfort, style, safety, nicely bundled convenience packages, great local dealer"

Cons: "high pressure turbo adds power but sacrifices mileage, a bit jerky around town"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"January 2011 traded fully equipped 2008 Sport S80 in excellent condition for 2011 T6 AWD with many convenience features, e.g. adaptive cruise,collision warning, rear park assist, blis,serius radio, heated/colled seats. Sacrificed some mileage (was getting over 30 on trips- now under 26), but retained comfort and gained the desired safety in all weather conditions. Plenty of power on road, but a bit jerky around town. Had a 1999 S70 with low pressure turbo and wish Volvo had kept that for newer models-greater gas mileage and much smoother.Volvo options better bundled and priced than the a la art options offered by BMW, Audi et al. Got the safe and secure package and love my local dealer."
