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

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.
