The 2017 Volvo S80, with its aging design and only minor updates. For the 2017 model year, might not have enough of it, though. Volvo fitted the S80 with new front and rear bumpers that exude a more stretched look that makes the car look wider. We’re not sure what that accomplishes apart from being a little more difficult to park in smaller spaces. Volvo describes the changes as adding a more sophisticated elegance. The car but we struggle to see where the sophistication.
2017 Volvo S80 Performance
A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque powers. The front-wheel-drive 2016 S80 T5 Drive-E. This, in addition to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, results in an EPA fuel economy rating of 29 mpg combined (25 city/37 highway). Which is excellent for this class of car. That lack in output may turn off a lot of people, but a significant portion of folks will no less be attracted to the engine’s class-leading 4.1 l/100 km. Fuel efficiency (57.37 mpg) and C02 emissions of just 108 g/km, numbers that you wouldn’t expect from a sedan of its class in the past. Likewise, the S80’s 136-horsepower D3 and 163-horsepower D4 engines both emit CO2 emissions of just 129 g, or 4.9 l/100 km (48 mpg). While the 180-horsepower, 1.6-liter GTDi T4 engine has a fuel consumption of just 7.1 l/100km (33.1 mpg).
2017 Volvo S80 Design
The interior of the aging Volvo S80 might not be as extravagant as those of some of its rivals. Volvo has an outstanding reputation for excellent seats, and the S80 upholds that honor. With upright and supremely supportive front seats that do a great job of keeping you comfortable on long trips. Rear passengers will find adequate room as long as there’s no need to seat three, but in general, many competitors. Volvo is outfitting it with the Executive interior package, the highest level of all-inclusive luxury. Blending craftsmanship with all the technology Volvo has and one that includes genuine cowhide leather.
