The 2015 Volvo S80's T5 Drive-E base model offers impressive gas mileage and exceptional comfort for the luxury sedan class.
Jaguar's XF is perhaps more handsome, and is more oriented toward the sporty end of the spectrum, particularly in the V-8-powered models.
The Cadillac XTS is perhaps the S80's closest competitor, with striking exterior styling and plenty of safety technology, though its CUE infotainment system is buggy and complex.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series are stalwarts of the category, and while they can offer sportier and even higher-tech alternatives, both can also quickly outstrip the S80's price.
