a curvier, sleeker appearance with a slightly sportier profile, yet still an unmistakably Volvo design

The general interior design...is one of the most refined we've seen. In good luxury style, it is muted, with nothing in particular calling attention to itself.

well-crafted, modern-styled luxury sedan

The Volvo S80 is more about conservative, yet prestigious styling, and it was one of the first cars to showcase a curvier side of Volvo's design.

The S80 hasn't changed much in recent years, though it did get a few new touches–like chrome accents, a new grille, and a more pronounced exhaust outlet–a few years back to sharpen its look. While it may look handsome in profile with its raked roofline and unmistakable Volvo front end, the S80 has started to age from certain angles–and it's definitely less exciting looking than its smaller S60 sedan sibling.

Thanks its simple, yet elegant Scandinavian design, the 2014 Volvo S80's interior continue to look current, even years after the most recent redesign. In fact, the style mavens will still be very satisfied. Volvo's 'floating' center stack—a thin panel that houses a high-end audio system, with extra storage behind—remains unrivaled for functionality and style. Materials take a stark, Scandinavian tack, with light and dark tones providing contrast, along with silk-metal inlays and real wood veneers that fully look the part of a luxury-car cabin.

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.
