[V8 has] "higher-grade leather upholstery, additional wood trim, an interior air quality system

numerous power assists
Kelley Blue Book

The 2010 Volvo S80 comes with a lot of traditional luxury features, but there are also plenty of extras—many of them the stuff of ultraluxury cars—on offer, if you’re willing to pay quite a bit more for it.

Kelley Blue Book reports that the Volvo S80 has a lengthy list of standard features, such as "numerous power assists, including eight-way adjustment for the front seats, a tilt and telescopic steering column, dual-zone climate control, 160-watt/eight-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with an auxiliary input and MP3 capability, [and] power sunroof." Also standard are a Bluetooth hands-free phone interface, a tinted windshield, Rainsensor windshield wipers, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Edmunds notes that the V-8 trim has "higher-grade leather upholstery, additional wood trim, an interior air quality system and Volvo's Personal Car Communicator (PCC) system," which "combines keyless startup with a security system that uses two-way radio technology to monitor the car's security status." Heated front and rear seats, heated windshield washer nozzles, high-pressure headlamp washers, and an inner door-opener light are all standard on the V-8 model, too.

Edmunds is enthusiastic about the S80's seats and sound system: "Dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-speaker stereo with an in-dash CD changer and an MP3 player jack, Bluetooth and one-touch power windows are also included."

Base and V-8 models of the Volvo S8 offer a good list of features, and the Climate Package, Convenience Package, and Technology Package provide plenty of opportunities for add-ons. Heated windshield wash nozzles, rain-sensor wipers, headlamp cleaning, and a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system are among the many options.

A newly enhanced Executive Package now brings classic wood inlays, plus extras like massage seats and softer leather, while a power moonroof and backseat refrigerator are now offered as stand-alone options. Also new this year is a Multimedia Package that pairs the excellent Dynaudio audio system with a DVD navigation system, rear headphone jacks, and Sirius Satellite Radio.

Automotive Traveler has a 2010 Volvo S80 with the ventilated seats and appreciates the cooling feature. "You'll never appreciate this more than when the outside temperature is in excess of 125 degrees as it was on our sojourn to Death Valley," the reviewer says.

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.
