From Volvo press: Volvo Car's flagship, S80L is one of the safest vehicles in the premium segment in China, providing all the security needed by governmental and business customers. The Volvo S80L redefines the highest criteria for a stretched premium car in China. And the Chinese business elites will find an undisputed top premium vehicle of top safety and luxury.
The wheel base of S80L is stretched by 140mm, reaching 2,975mm with a full length of 4,991mm. This results in a big rear seat leg space of 1,025mm. The width and height reach 1,861mm and 1,490mm.
The all new Volvo S80L is equipped with such luxurious specifications as a refrigerator in the rear seat, Premium Sound, rear seat entertainment system, and more deeply padded leather seats, according to the preferences of Chinese luxury car consumers.
The refrigerator is located in the rear seat backrest of the middle back seat. To open the refrigerator, the backrest is folded forward. Two cup holders are located in the backrest.
The design of the S80L fully reflects the intention to provide a limousine-like traveling experience for rear seat passengers. For the same reason, the armrest connected with the suspended centre console has been lengthened, enabling access to such functions as a cigarette lighter, sound control, seat heating, and the front seat adjustment control for the rear seats passengers.
While the comfort of Volvo Cars seats is widely acknowledged, S80L has gone a step further to provide an even more comfortable driving experience, by installing not just high-grade leather but also more luxuriously padded seats. In addition, the S80L 3.0 T6 AWD Prestige is equipped with the Volvo Premium Sound package. A digital amplifier from Alpine and 12 loudspeakers from Dynaudio® of Denmark, give an audio experience of the very highest premium level. The Premium Sound in S80L turns the car into a mobile "Grand Theater" among luxury cars, something even the most discerning audio enthusiast will be enthusiastic about.
In addition, S80L is also equipped with both an advanced Electronic Climate Control system (ECC), and Air Quality System (AQS), which greatly enhance comfort and provide a green and healthy in-car environment for passengers.
S80L 3.0 T6 AWD is equipped with the classic 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line turbocharged engine, with a maximum power rating of 210 kilowatts (285 hp) and a maximum output of 400 Nm torque at 1,500rpm. It needs only 7.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h, so it doesn't seem to be overstated if "extremely fast" is used to describe the speed. The T6 engine uses Twin Scroll technology, inhaling exhaust in two stages and dividing it into two scrolls, which then flow into three cylinders. Twin Scroll Technology uses a more compact and simple turbocharger with quick response, giving equivalent performance to dual turbochargers.
The T6 model is equipped with Volvo's all-wheel drive system which uses an electrically controlled hydraulically- activated clutch to distribute power between the front and rear wheels, to provide the best possible road grip in all situations. The system uses the instant traction system, which can distribute power very quickly between the front and rear wheels, when the car is driven in wet and slippery conditions, or on a soft road surface.
