Expert Quotes:

comfortable and supportive seats
Car and Driver

Comfortable, supportive seats have enough settings to make most backsides happy.
Consumer Guide

The quiet, roomy interior looks upscale, but also conservative.
MSN Autos

Typical of Volvo, the seats are supremely comfortable; don't be surprised if your passengers nod off.
Automobile Magazine


Outside of safety and longevity, Volvos are probably best known for having excellent seats. And for that, the 2011 S80 is no exception. You can't do much better than the perches in the S80; they're better than those in some sport sedans costing much more, and perfect for those of a wide range of sizes, thanks to all their adjustability; and they have enough underlying firmness for long-distance comfort. The front seats also have optional heating and cooling with fan-driven ventilation. The nicely contoured backseat is large enough for three petite folks or two American-sized adults (with enough headroom and legroom), and the climate-control system has vents built into the B-pillars for better comfort in back.

The trunk is one of the smallest in this class, at just under 15 cubic feet, but it can be expanded by flipping forward the 60/40-split seatbacks.

Throughout the line, ride comfort is great; it's not as stiff and highly controlled as a sport sedan, but it's never bouncy or wallowy either.

While materials go outside convention a little bit, along with the design, there's a lot to get comfortable with inside. Soft leather upholstery and trims are satisfying and luxurious, and there's little if any hard plastic up at eye level.

Conclusion

Not everyone will love the interior of the 2010 Volvo S80 because of some of the finer design points, but its comfort, spaciousness, and refinement are undeniable.

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.
