EDITORS' NOTEBOOK: 2008 Volvo S80 T6, Day 3
Read Jean Jennings’s comments on driving the 2008 Volvo S80 T6.
1. Nice shape, not boxy, but not that special. Doesn’t make you stop and slobber.
2. Oooooh. The interior! Beautifully grained chocolate top of dash, striking matte-finish dark wood strips on doors and dash and shifter are fine furniture-esque, brushed aluminum floating center console and gauge trim rings is cool tech, and absolute lack of any confusing extra electronics is a relief.
3. Super responsive turbo six does away with perennial lack of power complaints.
Squishy seats? Great seats!
