  1. Apart from the sheer comfort, style and design of Volvos – the main reason I'd never buy an Audi, Merc or BMW is that sad 'badge snobbery' effect that they command. Why be a sheep and follow the crowd? Your review is superb, catches the essence and appeal of the Volvo over the Germans. Sad that people buy cars and get ripped off purely on the badge

  2. A Very Capable Smooth Economic and Ergonomicaly Plush  I Drive 3.2  its a 2007 The Body style is The Same til 2015 What Can I say Overall? a 10 why? safe plush and Stylish Exellent Fuel Economy Absolutley Bullet Proof…

  3. I drive a 3.2 i6 engine and it's fantastic.  The car doesn't state "I'm fast" as it likes to 'shuttle you to your destination' as you've mentioned Bob.  However, like my wife's D5, it has the power when you need it.  On comfort when you arrive at your destination you feel like it has gently munched away the miles.  On long journeys the petrol models are pretty economical for their cc.  I hope to see more petrol models in the future.  I personally like the drive and performance of petrol.  However I did drive a V40 D3 last year in Sweden and it was quiet and swiftly albeit a tad bland of a drive.

  4.

  5. In relation to the comfort of Volvo vs the Germans, I've had a Volvo S60 for some years and this week I've been given an Audi A4 as a courtesy car while my Volvo's getting fixed. The ride and hardness of the seats in the A4 are so atrocious my spine is still in shambles. I don't know if it's the Audi that's too uncomfortable or the Volvo that's too comfortable if you get what I mean.

    Bob, quick question: why would I buy an S80 over an S60? Size? Equipment? I've never been able to fathom the crucial difference.

  6. Come on Volvo, I know your owned by Geely now but give us a bit of that famous Scandenavian design before no one is interested in buying your cars anymore.

  7. Always liked the look of Volvo ( modern ones anyway) but that one just looks odd to me if had the money to buy a car in that price range I wouldn't even consider this, just looks bland.
    PS any chance we can get that weather back, fuckin freezin out there.

  8. Volvo is very good – I tested the older models and they are very silent inside and comfortable also unique car on road but and ther is always "but" – it is boring outside, inside, and parts are expensive and reselling car in not easy also it is not so reliable like rivals.

  9. Whilst I have no doubt it is a very capable car I would never even envisage buying a 2014 car that looks almost identical to its 16 year-old predecessor. Google image "Volvo S80 1998" to see my point. Very unispiring design, especially compared to say a 2014 Mazda 6 or Peugeot 508.
