Quality and Equipment

Quality and Equipment
In brief:
A passion for high quality lies at the heart of the Volvo brand, which is reflected in
the choice and design of trim materials and the excellent build quality. The S80
enhanced its aesthetic appeal with detail refinements to the interior and exterior,
such as chrome surrounds for the instruments, improved materials for roof lining
and sunvisors, and redesigned interior front door panels with better ergonomics.
The S80 offers owners a choice of interior upholsteries and colours, as well as
optional upgrades, including Bergen Alcantara/Leather sports upholstery. All
interior trim and materials confirm to the international Oeko-Tex standards and
are allergen-free to reduce allergies and skin conditions.
With the latest, enhanced specifications for 2006 SE Lux models, the S80 is more
luxurious and better value than ever with leather upholstery, RTI satellite
navigation with RDS-TMC, Electronic Climate Control with Volvo’s Air Quality
System (AQS) and pollen filter, alloy wheels, cruise control and a High
Performance audio system with 6xCD player and Dolby Pro Logic II Surround
Sound™ fitted to every S80.
Customers can upgrade to the range-topping Executive model with soft leather
upholstery, a fridge in the rear armrest plus glasses, and DVD with twin rear TV
There’s also a host of accessories and options, including upgraded audio systems,
sun curtains for side and rear windows, an integrated GSM telephone, and even
armour protection, if required.
Peace of mind is provided by a comprehensive warranty package that includes one
year’s free RAC cover and a full three year/60,000 mileage mechanical warranty.

A passion for high quality lies at the heart of the Volvo brand. It's inherent not only in the
build quality that reflects the ruggedness, durability and reliability for which the marque is
renowned, but also in the choice of body and trim materials. From the crafted door handles,
solid, chunky feel of the switchgear to the leather-wrapped gearknob, the Volvo S80 exudes a
feeling of quality, well-being and good Swedish design.
Subtle detailed enhancements were introduced for the new S80 in 2003, including chrome
surrounds for the instruments, improved materials for rooflining and sunvisors, chrome
detailing under the side windows, rear lights and above the rear number plate, plus
redesigned interior front door panels with better ergonomics for all sizes of occupants.
This was enhanced further for the 2006 model year with the introduction of chronograph
dials on every model with graphite aluminium inlays for the interior, and clear side marker
lights and aluminium door mirror housings as the most noticeable external improvements.
Luxury and Style
Customers also expect a high level of standard equipment in a premium saloon, and the
Volvo S80 does not disappoint. Yet, competitive prices and high levels of luxury and
refinement make the S80 range surprisingly good value, with higher standard specifications
than other premium brand rivals.
For 2006, the S80 range is now available in two trim levels: SE Lux and Executive. To reflect
the enhanced standard specifications for 2006, the new SE Lux variant has been introduced
to replace the former S and SE variants.
The standard specification of the SE Lux variant includes:
Alarm with immobiliser, and panic function on key fob.
Electronic Climate Control with Volvo’s AQS (Air Quality System) and pollen filter.

Volvo's RTI (Road and Traffic Information) satellite navigation system is now standard on
every S80, and for 2006 now features a new RDS-TMC (Traffic Message Channel) which
displays and gives up to date information of any traffic problems.
The system’s large colour screen rises from its recess in the top of the dashboard when
required, to be more safely positioned in the driver's line of view, and is linked to a DVD map
system covering the whole of Europe.
The RDS-TMC receives broadcasts of the latest traffic information and then displays any
traffic problem areas by a set of red or yellow symbols to indicate the severity of any
congestion. If using the route guidance, the system can then automatically re-route around
any known traffic problems en route, if required, to avoid unnecessary delays and wasted
time and energy on the journey.
Controls on the steering wheel make it easy for the driver to use the RTI system, or there’s a
remote control unit for passengers to use. The screen can also double as a TV monitor.
Options and accessories
Naturally, Volvo offers a range of options and accessories to alloy customers to personalise
their S80 to meet their needs. Hi-fi enthusiasts, for example, can upgrade the standard audio
