Volvo’s S generation is a suite of compact executive cars introduced in the mid to late-1990s, from when they quickly developed a reputation for reliability, safety and exceptional performances. Volvo S luxury compact cars are smaller than mid-size or family vehicles, but what defines them is their fine materials and high-quality compositions – particularly in terms of their features, which are not usually available in mass market cars. New Volvo S ride quality, off-the-mark acceleration and accessible speed are confirmation of these vehicles’ market status.

Volvo has kept going with a good thing in the Volvo S40 for 2010, making no new changes to the current model lineup. The entry-level four-cylinder petrol Volvo 240 2.0 engine delivers 107KW, with fuel consumption on the highway of just 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres (with manual transmission). The Volvo S40 T5 (turbocharged) petrol engine delivers 169KW with a peak of 5000rpm at maximum rev range. The diesel Volvo S40 2.0 D engine delivers 100KW at the peak of its rev range, while achieving an incredible consumption of 4.8 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway with a six-speed manual transmission.
The Volvo S40 car's interior is minimalist and classy, offering spacious front seating that gives occupants the impression of elegance. The seats are upholstered in fine leather, and support passengers comfortably, while the driver's tilt telescoping steering wheel determines the optimum driving position. A light-oak centre console and door panel inlays complement the ultra-slim "floating" centre stack, which is tucked between the console and the dash, for ease of use. Cabin space is airy and has plenty of elbow room, while the 60/40 rear-seat split makes way for an ample boot. Features such as climate control, electric windows, CD stereo with MP3 capability, cruise control in certain models and heated front seats create functional comfort in the new Volvo S40.
Of course, the Volvo S40 scores among the highest in its class for safety. Equipped with standard Anti-lock Brake Systems, traction control and stability control, the Volvo S40 is designed to reduce skidding and maintain control in wet and slippery road conditions. Intelligent Driver Information System technology delays the Volvo S40 car's onboard applications and gives relevant warnings during high-pressure situations in order to increase safety levels. Front fog lamps and front, side and curtain airbags are standard features across this range.

The Volvo S80 ranks favourably as a result of its safety features, stylish interiors and tasteful appearance. While it's not sporty, the Volvo S80 is packed with luxurious applications for those who prefer low-profile cruising in comfort. In 2010, the Volvo S80 has a new grille, chrome trim accents and exhaust tips, but it is essentially the same, sculpted car of previous generations. As some reviewers refer to it as "masculine, handsome and posh", the Volvo S80 seems to have maintained its commanding presence on the road. Because its price tag also undercuts many European and Japanese big brand competitors, the S80 can also be a wise financial selection.
Available in the turbocharged petrol Volvo S80 2.5T, as well as the Volvo S80 3.0T, these engines deliver 170KW and 210KW of power respectively. While the 3.0-litre all-wheel-drive engine delivers superior torque, the 2.5-litre turbo has excellent fuel consumption at just 6.9-litres per 100 kilometres on the highway, and 14.2 litres per 100 kilometres in the city. The Volvo S80 D5 turbocharged diesel engine delivers 151KW of power, and achieves just 6.7 litres per 100 kilometres of highway driving.
The Volvo's S80 is fitted with plush leather seats that are adjustable and have enough settings to suit any body shape. A manually adjustable tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjusts to driver preferences, while lumbar seat support makes sitting in traffic or embarking on long journeys manageable. Climate control and entertainment functions are easy to use through the slim "floating" diagram-based control panel, which is suspended conveniently in the centre console and dashboard. Overall, the Volvo S80 car's interior is clean and spacious - nothing less than what buyers would expect in this luxury range.
