(2004 model shown)
Volvo's stately S80 sedan was refreshed last year with refined styling and various other improvements, and remains largely unchanged for 2005. Standard is a 2.9-liter in-line five-cylinder engine that produces 194 horsepower, while the top turbocharged 2.9-liter in-line six produces 268 horses; both are mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. In addition, a turbocharged 2.5-liter in-line five-cylinder engine is available that produces 208 horses and comes with a five-speed automatic. The latter includes a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system that's able to operate in conjunction with the car's traction- and stability-control systems. An adjustable ride-control system allows the driver to switch from "comfort" to "sport" ride and handling settings.
