As Volvo's premium luxury sedan, the S80 offers a remarkable combination of world-class comfort, dynamic performance, cutting-edge infotainment and advanced safety technologies. Changes for the new model year are designed to enhance the desirability, convenience and exclusivity factors of Volvo's flagship.
The Volvo Sensus system, which made its debut on the S80 last year, has been enhanced for 2013. Standard on all S80 models, Sensus lets drivers manage information from the audio unit, navigation system (if equipped) and other functions, displaying them onto a seven-inch high-definition color monitor. Steering-wheel-mounted scroll functionality is increased for more intuitive and consistent flow of information. Drivers can adjust these functions without taking their hands off the steering wheel:
The convenience of Volvo's trim level strategy allows buyers to select an S80 equipped with features that meet their needs. Models include the S80 3.2 and T6 AWD in base, Premier Plus and Platinum trims. Rain sensor windshield wipers, headlight washers and Keyless Drive with Personal Car Communicator (PCC) are now standard on all models. New Tunnel Detection automatically turns on the headlights when the car enters a tunnel and then returns the lights to the previous setting when exiting the tunnel.
Active dual Xenon headlights and an accessory prep cable have been added to the Premier Plus trim, which also includes a compass in the auto-dimming rearview mirror, front and rear park assist and Homelink remote garage door opener.
The Platinum trim level includes features of Premier Plus while adding the Volvo Premium Sound System with Dolby® Pro-Logic® II Surround Sound, 12 premium speakers and a remarkable 650 watts. Also included is a Navigation System with Voice Control and map care plus a rear park assist camera.
The Dynamic Package, offered for all T6 AWD trims, gains new 18-inch "Ymir" forged five-spoke alloy wheels in Silver Bright finish and a sport 3-spoke leather steering wheel. Additional package features include Sanded Silver inlays, dynamic sport seating, with a choice of Blonde or Off-Black leather, and a Sport Chassis for crisper response via a lower ride height, shorter and firmer springs, modified shock damping, firmer anti-roll bars and stiffer subframe bushings.
All S80s are equipped with a six-speed "Geartronic" transmission that lets the driver select fully automatic operation or shift manually when desired. A new gearshift knob includes illuminated drive modes for added convenience. A Sport Mode makes its debut exclusively on T6 AWD models to further enhance the sporty driving character.
