What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the S80: Redesigned last year to
replace the long in the tooth vehicle it replaced, the 2000 Volvo S80 takes
on a luxury flare that other automakers should be aware of. Volvo's have
been known to be very safe and reliable cars and with that said the same
goes with the 2000 Volvo S80. There are some unique powertrains you can get
in the S80, first off is a 2.9 L 6-Cylinder or step up to the more powerful
2.8 L 6-Cylinder Twin turbo that we
tested. All of these powertrains are made into a 4-Speed Automatic. On the
interior of the S80 you will find it to be quite inviting with soft touch
interior accents and couch like seats that will remind you of a Cadillac
that your grandparents once owned. The Radio and climate controls tend to
face towards the driver rather than the passenger which it makes it
pleasing so you can keep your eyes on the road. On the exterior design it's
very Volvo familiar here and the headlight wipers give it a strong European
flavor. Compared to it's competitors the S80 is more trying to compete with
Lexus and Cadillac, however the more sportier BMW 5 Series and Audi A6 have
better driving dynamics. So is the S80 worth considering? If you are
looking for a roomy luxury sedan that's safe and reliable this Volvo

Volvo 760. The car that saved Volvo Car Corporation
In February 1982 the new Volvo 760 GLE was launched. No typical Volvo, yet
unmistakably a Volvo. Seen as elegant and exciting with its characteristic
design it was well received. The 760 became the car that actually saved
Volvo Car Corporation back then and paved the way to the modern company of
