2013 Volvo S80 Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

Considering the mission of the 2013 Volvo S80—to carry four adults (or maybe five) in absolute comfort and safety, swaddled with conveniences—it's a reasonably green pick, provided you go with the front-wheel-drive model.

Last year Volvo managed to eke a little more mileage out of its six-cylinder engine; front-wheel-drive S80 models now get 20 mpg city, 29 highway, which isn't bad for such a large sedan.

The 2013 Volvo S80 is reasonably efficient in front-wheel-drive form, if you make good use of all the passenger space.

You give up a lot for the all-wheel-drive model—2 mpg in the city, and 3 mpg on the highway—and we're not sure it's worth it unless you truly need the snow-driving security.
