I bought the S80 because it had better styling, luxury, fuel economy and safety than the competition. Three months later, I'm still very pleased. A recent 300 mile trip got me 31.3 mpg at an average 64 mph with air conditioning! That's better than many so-called economy cars. It feels solid as a bank-vault, and definitely has that luxurious ambience.
I LOVE the programmable folding power side mirrors. The fold into the body every time I lock the doors - very cool for city life. I also like the memory seat which senses which driver is opening the door (by sensing the key-fob). Very cool. Also, the best designed interior around!
a) Integrated blue tooth should be standard on a car of this level (it is in Europe btw). b) Same thing for a power tilt and telescope steering column. I don't much mind the manual cranks, but the competition is ahead with this feature. c) Ditto power rear sun-shade.
