The 2008 Volvo S80 is one of the more comfortable cars we've tested, and gets good mileage for a car of its size. Cabin tech doesn't go out of its way to work with personal electronics, but the safety gear is cutting edge.

Volvo's largest sedan doesn't present the overbearing luxury of a Mercedes-Benz S-class or Lexus LS. Instead, it works as a very comfortable and refined everyday driver that lacks ostentation.
The S80 keeps it simple by only having two gauges, a speedometer and a tachometer, on the instrument cluster. Each gauge holds a monochrome display, which shows things such as the fuel level and outside temperature.
Adaptive cruise control lets you set a cruising speed, then will slow the car down if there is slower traffic in the lane ahead. Here you can see the cruise control set for 70 mph, but the car only doing a little above 60 mph.
