Autoweek: S80 a solid alternative to the Germans

Take the new S80 for a coupla days and write a blog about it,” came the directive from road test editor Natalie Neff. I proceeded to go out to the parking lot where I promptly walked by this thing a few times before I realized I wasn’t looking at the old S80. Sure looked familiar. It’s all new? Looks like a slightly sleeker, less flabby version of the old car. So I read up on Volvo’s flagship and found it is indeed an all-new car top to bottom, now sharing basic architecture with Ford’s corporate C1-plus platform, also in the new Ford Galaxy and S-Max minivans. C1-plus is itself a bigger version of the C1 platform (Mazda 3, Volvo S40 and in some variation even the Land Rover LR2—Ford is really getting some mileage out of this whole C1 thing) and can be had with front- or four-wheel drive.
