If you're looking for a new 2013 Volvo S80 in Chicago, Howard Orloff is the place to make your next automobile purchase. We have been in business selling new and pre-owned Volvos in Chicagoland for over 50 years. And, we have a wide selection of Volvo models in our inventory, including the popular S80.

The Volvo S80 is a mid-size executive sedan that replaced the rear-wheel drive 960/S90 models. There are actually two generations for this particular Volvo, but unlike most, the first generation did not come with an option for an estate/station wagon style. This model is considered a flagship for Volvo and one that garners plenty of rave reviews.

As a trademark with all Volvos, the first generation was equipped with numerous safety systems, including Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) and Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS). The S80 featured a straight-six engine in a transverse engine mounting. Initially, the S80 models came with four different engines to choose from. In 2000, Volvo added standard all-wheel drive and a 2.5T model which featured a light-pressure turbocharger. The first generation received high marks for the design and protection in the event of a collision.

The second generation S80 model featured a new 3.2-litre straight-six engine or 4.4-litre engine, in addition to four-wheel drive. The engine has four catalytic converters and advanced electronics. The second generation S80 received the IIHS Top Safety Pick Award in overall safety protection for 2007 and 2008.

As you might know, the 2010 models introduced a host of new features including: choice of three different engines, the exterior was modified to give the S80 a lower, longer and wider appearance, more chrome trim to the exterior, the interior package contained a new sports steering wheel, sports pedals, leather seats, sports gearshift knob and a new instrument panel with a blue background.

Volvo plans to incorporate a variety of updates for the 2014 S80 model, including: new lower front fascia, new grill style, new touch screen infotainment system, new optional digital gauge cluster, and additional interior ambient lighting.
