Volvo S80 (06-16) - rated 3.5 out of 5

The Volvo S80 is a bit of an elder statesman when it comes to the large saloon market, offering an alternative to the Audi A6, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series since 2006.

During that time it was facelifted, in 2009 and then in 2013. The first update brought with it a redesign inside and out, new technology and a revamped D5 diesel engine.

Then in 2013 Volvo gave the S80 another restyle to give it the new family face as per the Volvo V70 estate, with new bumpers front and rear, a wider front grille, rear LED tail-lights and daytime running lights at the front.

Automatic gearbox equipped cars were given steering-wheel mounted paddle-shift controls and you could upgrade the wheels to 19-inches.
