EDITORS' NOTEBOOK: 2008 Volvo S80 T6, Day 2
Read Rusty Blackwell’s comments on driving the 2008 Volvo S80 T6.
The serene and peaceful Volvo S80′s interior is so warm-feeling and classy that I almost don’t care about the rest of the car. The real-wood inlays on the door panels and surrounding the shifter are my favorite details, but I also love the excellent finish on the dashtop (it’s almost like brushed aluminum, even though the material is your typical cushy dashtop foam). As Lorio noted, the T6 is probably the best-buy trim level on the S80, since the turbo six is plenty quick and saves you money initially over the V-8 model. (Fuel economy ratings for the T6 and the V-8 engines are equal, however.)
