What used Volvo S80 saloon will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Volvo S80 saloon?
The newer cars are more environmentally friendly and cheaper to run, with the short-lived 1.6D DRIVe the most-efficient at 62.8mpg and 119g/km of CO2. In comparison, the original 2.0-litre diesel manages 49.6mpg and emits 151g/km, while both the older 2.4-litre engines deliver around 44mpg and emit 169g/km of CO2.
Servicing costs should be reasonable, thanks to intervals of two years/18,000 miles on many models, and the S80 has also proved durable to date, so repair bills shouldn't be too frightening. The S80 is generally cheaper to insure than rivals, sitting in a lower group than both the Audi A6 and BMW 5 series.
