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 S80 T6 lpg 0-160km/h
Measuring the acceleration of a stock Volvo S80 T6 which runs on LPG. As
you can see, the Vialle LPi system lets the car perform equal to the
performance on regular petrol. On the Dynorun this car had even more
torque (16Nm) and more power (2hp) on LPG, compared to the run on petrol.
Probably due to the higher octane of LPG.
2015 Volvo XC90 vs. 2015 BMW X5 - DESIGN
2015 BMW X5
Engineered in Germany and built in South Carolina, the 2015
BMW X5 continues to be a benchmark for any company contemplating a new
luxury mid-size SUV. The X5's off-road-ability may be outweighed by its
superb on-road manners, but that's all on purpose--it's a luxury family
wagon tailored for comfort, meant for gated-community garages everywhere.
The X5 can seat up to seven, and for most of those passengers, it's a
warmer ambiance to soak up. Seat comfort isn't perfect, though, with some
flatness in the front buckets. The second-row seat in the X5 can now be
split 40/20/40, for more flexibility, and they're adjustable for rake.
The X5 hasn't dramatically changed its sheetmetal in this generation, but
the cabin's reworked handsomely. The new X5 is more gracefully sculpted
than its ancestors, in measurable amounts but not in any dramatic fashion.
In the cockpit, the monolithic bulge of BMW's latest dash designs shows up
in swell form, made distinctive this time with a choice of neutral and
brown leathers over the standard black leatherette. It's not so broad a
palette until you reach into the more extreme colors on the option list.
There's even a reddish-brown.
The BMW X5 occupies that performance space typical of German SUVs like the
Mercedes M-Class and VW Touareg and, yes we're going there, the Jeep Grand
Cherokee. There's diesel power available, insanely plush spin-offs with V-8
2015 Volvo XC90
ollowing several leaks, Volvo has published a full set of details about the
2015 XC90. The Swedish automaker's range-topping crossover will be
presented to the public for the first time at the Paris Motor Show next
The XC90 inaugurates Volvo's next design language that was previewed by a
series of show cars including the retro-inspired Concept Estate introduced
last March in Geneva. Generally more angular than the current model, the
crossover boasts a tall front end characterized by a floating radiator
grille with horizontal slats, sharp headlights with T-shaped LED daytime
running lights and a rippled hood. Out back, the upright tail lamps remain
but they adopt LED technology.
Inside, the XC90 moves up on the market with a luxurious cockpit that
features acres of leather upholstery, real wood trim on the dashboard and
on the center console as well as a large tablet-like touch screen that
controls the crossover's infotainment system. The steering is commanded
through a three-spoke multi-function wheel, and the XC90 packs a fully
digital instrument cluster.
Staying true to tradition, Volvo has equipped the XC90 with a full suite of
electronic driving aids and safety features including two functions that
have never been used on a production car before. The first is a run-off
road protection function that tightens seat belts and helps cushion
vertical forces if the XC90 is accidentally driven off the road and into a
ditch, for example. The second is an automatic brake at intersection
feature that stops the crossover if it detects the driver pulls out in
front of a car that is going too fast.
Under the Skin
Under normal driving conditions, the two power sources will work together
to generate about 400 horsepower and a V8-like 472
lb-ft. of torque. Alternatively, the motor will be able to propel the XC90
on electricity alone for up to 24 miles.
Conventional versions of the next XC90 will be powered by Volvo's new
Drive-E engine family which will include two gas-burning mills rated at 254
and 316 horsepower, respectively,
and two turbodiesels tuned to generate
190 and 225 ponies. The oil-burners are unlikely to be sold on this side of
The 2015 Volvo XC90 will go on sale shortly after it debuts in the French
capital. Full pricing information will be published closer to its on-sale
date, but Volvo has revealed the XC90 T6 AWD will start at $48,900. The
list of standard features will include navigation, a panoramic sunroof and
Buyers will be asked to choose from two basic model lines: Urban Luxury and
Rugged Luxury. The elegant Urban Luxury model will pack a color-coordinated
body kit with stainless steel trim and 21-inch wheels, while the Cross
Country-inspired Rugged Luxury model will stand out with flat black trim,
skid plates on both ends and 22-inch alloys.
Finally, Volvo will offer a limited run of 1,927 XC90 First Edition models,
a number chosen to celebrate the year of the automaker's birth. First
Edition models come with custom badging all around, a numbered plaque
inside and a long list of standard features including air suspension on
both axles and a 19-speaker, 1,400-watt sound system. First Edition models
will be exclusively offered with a four-cylinder mill that generates 316 horsepower and 295
lb-ft. of torque.
The First Edition cars will be sold online on a first-come, first-served
basis on September 3rd, 2014, starting at 10:00am. Pricing will kick off at

From Wikipedia the Online encylopedia
The Volvo S80 is a mid-size executive saloon/sedan from Swedish automaker
Volvo Cars, and was introduced in 1998 to take the place of the rear-wheel
drive Volvo 960/S90 saloons in the model range. The Volvo S80 was built at
the Torslanda Works in Gothenburg, Sweden. Unlike most Volvo models, it did
not have an estate / station wagon version for its first generation. Now,
the third generation V70 wagon is marketed as the estate version for the
second generation S80 saloon. This is a part of a major product overhaul at
Volvo, including a luxury large estate and saloon.
The first generation Volvo S80 had one of the highest crash test ratings in
the world for five years. The second generation Volvo S80,
in June 2007, scored the highest "good" rating in the Insurance Institute
for Highway Safety (IIHS) crash test performance for frontal, side, and
rear impacts, continuing in the success of the first S80 sedan, earning
it the IIHS Top Safety Pick. The second generation S80 is better engineered
than the previous model, in part due to a more rigid chassis.
The first generation S80 is based on the Volvo P2 Platform. More than
368,000 first generation S80s were built before the introduction of the new
model. This S80 was equipped with numerous safety systems, including
Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) and Whiplash Protection System
WHIPS.The S80 featured a straight-six engine in a transverse engine
mounting. No existing manual gearbox would fit in the engine bay with the
six-cylinder engine, so Volvo had to develop their own, the M65. It
featured also an environmental specification, covering aspects such as
allergens from textiles, fuel economy and the life cycle of the car from
production to dismantling.
The S80 used canbus multiplex wiring.
The S80 was initially available with four different engines. Starting the
range was a detuned 2.4-litre 104 kilowatts (141 PS; 139 bhp)
five-cylinder. This was also available as a compressed natural gas (CNG)
and as an liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) version. The fully tuned version
produced 125 kilowatts (170 PS; 168 bhp). Next up was a 2.9-litre 144
kilowatts (196 PS; 193 bhp) six-cylinder, then 200 kilowatts (272 PS; 268
bhp) T6, and finally, the 103 kilowatts (140 PS; 138 bhp) 2.5-litre
Volkswagen-sourced turbocharged Direct
Injection (TDI) diesel engine. The 2.9 has a straight-six engine, while the
T6 was powered by a destroked twin-turbocharged version.
