Volvo S80 Saloon engines, drive and performance

1998 - 2005 (change model)
Performance rating: 3.5 out of 53.5

Written by Parkers Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019

Petrol engines range from 140bhp which is a bit sluggish up to 272bhp which is rapid. Then there are smooth diesel units and the option of LPG and CNG bi-fuel units.

S80 is a motorway muncher of the first order with a cushioning ride but steering is rather imprecise and it wallows on twists and turns. Not a sportscar but then no one would buy it as such.
