2007 Volvo S80 Review

Note: This review was created when the 2007 Volvo S80 was new.

The S80 is a smooth driving, competent luxury car with class-leading safety features and ratings and a generally well-liked interior. However, the car is not a sporty vehicle, with some finding it underpowered and with somewhat weak handling. If you're in the market for a luxury large car, also consider the Mercedes-Benz E-Class or the BMW 5-Series.

  • Some find rear seating cramped

2007 Volvo S80 Overview

The 2007 Volvo S80 offers solid performance, excellent safety features and safety reputation and a refined and comfortable interior. Edmunds claims the S80 retains what makes Volvo great, safety and sturdiness, "while moving the carmaker closer to its aspiration of delivering a sexy and spirited driving experience." Though Car and Driver finds the S80 generally dull, it is also "eminently rational and sensible." The Boston Herald adds that the S80 "is a great family sedan for safety-conscious car buyers," while Cars.com calls the S80 "the best car Volvo has ever made."

While most reviewers find the S80 competitively priced, some find it pricey given its blandness. Cars.com calls the S80 a "darn good buy" for sedan buyers who are interested in extreme safety over performance, and Car and Driver adds, "For that money, we expect dynamic entertainment, not boredom." Edmunds observes that the S80 is "a sanely priced midsize luxury sedan," with ample safety technology you will not find in other midsize sedans of this price range.

IntelliChoice gave the S80 a value rating of "Worse than Average" for its predicted five-year cost of ownership compared to other vehicles in its class.
