What's the used Volvo S80 saloon like?

Few cars make long-distance journeys as relaxing as the Volvo S80. The larger engines are all refined and provide the S80 with decent performance, while wind and road noise are nicely suppressed. With a comfortable chassis, it really does waft you along as the miles fall away.

What the big front-wheel-drive saloon won't do is encourage you to leave the motorway and take the twisty route. The steering is dull and body control poor; even the high-powered T6 doesn't have a chassis sharp enough to do its performance justice.
