Luxury brand Volvo offers both elegance and top-notch safety in all its models, and its flagship sedan, the S80, is a great choice for older drivers.
Innovative safety features include side air bags with dual chambers for enhanced hip and chest protection, seats that aim to reduce whiplash in a rear impact, and a unique steel structure that uses four grades of steel for optimum energy absorption. While always quite luxurious with soft leather seats and door panels, Volvo has taken things one step further for 2010 with a new silk matte metal finish on the steering wheel, gear selector and starter button.
Engineers have also improved ride and handling on all models, while models equipped with the new sport chassis will get an even more exhilarating driving experience. There are three engine choices for the S80, including all-wheel-drive versions.
For 2010, the list of luxury features got longer, with certain models now featuring a premium audio system with surround sound and rear headphone jacks, and a navigation system with remote control.
