I explained to the surprised BMW salesman when I said no to the new 5 series sedan that I preferred the 09 Volvo S80: more powerful, more comfortable, softer ride, $15K less,and an exterior whose subtle beauty has grown on me. I love this car and plan to keep it forever.
Smooth power of the T6 280 hp, understated elegance of the interior. It handles better than the reviews say, fun to drive on country roads, great cruiser on the highway. Roomy and quiet inside, the AWD has solid traction and handling in frozen upstate NY winter. Great heated seats.
