Expert Quotes:

19 mpg city, 27 highway (S80); 18/26 (S80 T6 AWD)

A T6 averaged 17.3 mpg. S80 uses regular-grade gas.
Consumer Guide

Across the board, the S80's powertrains are very thirsty, and this is one of the S80's chief failings—though Volvo has dropped the thirstiest, the V-8, for 2011. The base six-cylinder version gets 19 mpg city, 27 highway, and even the turbo T6 version, with all-wheel drive, only gets one mile per gallon lower.

However in drives of the S80 we've seen numbers toward the lower end of that scale in mixed driving—mostly because of this sedan's 4,000-pound-plus heft, we suspect.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
