A Used Volvo S80 Will Transform Your Driving Experience

December 20th, 2016 by


You spend thousands of hours in your car every year. You should be proud of the vehicle you’re driving. A used Volvo S80 makes this possible by providing a luxury car at an affordable price.

The Drive-E powertrains provide best-in-class fuel consumption with 37 miles per gallon on highway driving and fuel-efficient gear rations that optimize aerodynamic to make your ride cost effective as well as comfortable. In addition, 240 horsepower means your turbocharged engine will get you where you want to go, when you want to get there. Tack on 258 lb. ft. of torque and you have a vehicle that you can drive with pride. Four-cylinder engines and plug-in hybrid boasts excellent acceleration (0-62 in 5.9 seconds), making highway merging a breeze.

You don’t necessarily buy a used Volvo S80 for the fancy amenities under the hood though—you buy a car because of the comfort, entertainment, utility, and visual appeal it offers. Plenty of features make a used Volvo S80 an investment that will pay off. For example, the Volvo On Call app allows you control your car remotely, so you don’t have to dig around for your keys in an overstuffed purse. You’re able to start your engine, check the fuel level, heat up your car in the winter or cool it down in the summer. All of this is done with the push of a button, allowing you to enjoy breakfast in the morning while your car preheats to your exact temperature specification.

Lights are perhaps the most important safety feature of a vehicle. Were they to go out while you were driving or fail to illuminate a deer crossing the road, you would be in big trouble. A used Volvo S80 has a combination of Dual Xenon Headlights and Active Bending Lights that make curves in the road no problem when you’re driving at night. These clever lights adjust for optimum angle to the road depending on the load in your car. Even during acceleration and braking, these lights keep you aware of everything around you. In addition, active high beam control detects when another driver is approaching you from the opposite direction and adjusts your high beams so that the part of the high beam that would blind them is shaded.

A speaker system that would make movie theaters jealous comes standard in every used Volvo S80. Twelve high-fidelity speakers, clear as crystal amplification, and bass performance to make the ground shake are all included in the Harman Kardon’s audio experience. With Pandora and StitcherTM built into your audio system, songs are easier to access than ever. Sitting in silence on your morning commute is a drag, so invest in a used Volvo S80 to make the drive enjoyable.

Sensus is a trademark feature of the Volvo that controls the technology in your car by accessing entertainment, safety features, and WiFi hotspots. In addition, apps like Pandora and Yelp can be found on your home screen, so your car is customized to fit your interests. The WiFi hotspot feature ensures no one can complain of boredom on road trips. With access to your favorite games and websites, seven hours can feel like ten minutes. An extended WiFi range allows you to utilize your connection even when you step out of the car. The used Volvo S80’s navigational capabilities make getting lost a thing of the past. Voice recognition, 3D imaging, routing options, and built-in apps are standard features to make navigation simple. For those who like to plan ahead, you can map out your journey beforehand and send directions to your car. You can even send data through the Volvo Cloud. On top of all these features, Sensus also has high-definition touch screens, voice control so you can concentrate on the road, and a head-up display that alerts you to information without distracting you.

Revolutionary safety features balances driver control and foolproof technology, giving you the reassurance you need while driving. Like having a co-pilot, the used Volvo S80 has adaptive cruise control which adjusts to remains a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. Plus, pilot assist technology keeps you in the lane with minute steering inputs when you’re driving below 50 km/hr. A camera that gives you a 360° view of your environment makes parking in tight spots and watching for collision hazards incredibly easy. Being sleepy at the wheel can be just as dangerous as driving under the influence. Driver Alert Control alerts you when you’re drowsy at the wheel and offers possible options of places along the road that you can take a break (Rest Stop Guidance function). It can be dangerous checking your blind spot on busy highways, especially at night. The Blind Spot Information System in a used Volvo S80 utilizes radar sensors to alert you when lane changing isn’t safe due to a vehicle in your blind spot. Think of Lane Keeping Aid as a guide, gently steering you back on track when you start unintentionally veering into another lane. In addition, the Pedestrian Airbag inflates to cover the windshield and prevent further injuries.

If you live in a busy city and have to constantly be aware of the hazards in your path while driving, the City Safety feature will make this easier than ever. Your used Volvo S80 will brake automatically if collision is imminent, otherwise your brakes are always prepped to respond quickly. This vehicle is made to detect jaywalkers and respond to their stupidity in the most efficient way possible. Plus, cyclist detection technology gives you a heads up if anyone swerves into your lane.  With the ability to detect intersection collisions and prevent them before they happen, you can avoid one of the most common accident situations.

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘click it or ticket’, but a used Volvo S80 takes things to a whole other level by engineering seat belts that are electrically retractable and tighten in case of an accident. This three-point safety belt (designed by Volvo in 1959) revolutionized seat belts and has saved countless lives since its invention. Plus, the structure of your seat is designed to prevent spine compression in unintentional landing by absorbing vertical loads. A rear-facing child’s seat and integrated booster cushion are safety innovations that help define Volvo’s commitment to making world-class vehicles.

Certain packages let you customize bonus features to whatever you feel matters most to you. The climate package, for example, has heated rear seats, windshield washer nozzles, windshields, and steering wheels, so your car can feel like summer all year long. The convenience package includes park assist cameras, quick fold front passenger seats, and a grocery bag holders. Great for families and those who want one hundred percent reassurance when they’re backing out of their driveway, the convenience package thinks of the things you’ve never even considered. One of the more popular packages is the technology package. Active high beams, distance alerts, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control are just some of the features you can expect from the technology package in a used Volvo S80. The inscription package has ventilated front seats, inscription floor mats, a leather covered dashboard, and sovereign hide leather upholstery make your used Volvo S80 top tier in terms of luxury.

Extra accessories can optimize your used Volvo S80 driving experience by making recreational road trips easier, preventing permanent stains, or enhancing safety. The booster cushion and backrest is designed for children ages 3-10 to make sure the safety belt will fit them properly. Comfortable and absorbent material keeps your child happy, and the ability to tilt for sleeping capabilities keeps mom happy. In addition, the adjustable backrest protects your child in a rear-end collision. The rear seat cover keeps your upholstery looking brand new, and is especially useful for keeping pet dander and smell from permeating the fabric. A load carrier fits perfectly on your used Volvo S80 and easily installs for great transportation purposes. Whether you’re bringing along a kayak for a weekend trip or mounting bicycles, this is a great addition to for those who don’t want to pay exuberant amounts of money to rent equipment at their destination. A luggage compartment mat prevents your luggage from making permanent damage to your car and, as a bonus, is also reversible. A rear park assist camera, winter tires, and thermal storage box are also option. The camera gives you eyes in the back of your head, winter tires keep you safe during dangerous seasons, and thermal storage is great for traveling.
