Another is an advanced remote controlled alarm system that detects an interior movement, vehicle elevation or even jacked up or hitched car by a tow vehicle. Another is an optional laminated theft-proof side windows that is difficult to shatter tapped to an approach lighting press the button on the remote control that switches on a number of car lights at the same time. And lastly is the home safe lighting that features a prolonged low

The above enumerated safety features are not meant to overshadow the driving performance of the Volvo S80. It's more than safety and styling. Still, same power is to be expected from this car. Among the modern time cars, the S80 is the first one to have a transversely mounted inline 6-cylinder engine. There are several petrol and diesel-efficient engines available for the Volvo S80 by the year 1998 such as the T6, 2.8 liter which offers extremely high performance and a speedy response as a result of the double turbochargers and the 2.9, 6-cylinder, 2,9 liter normally aspirated engine which combines power and smooth vibration-free operation with top-class engine efficiency.
By the end of the year 1998, three more engines were added and these are the new and more efficient 5-cylinder, 2.4 liter engine; the 2.4 fuel-efficient, 5-cylinder developing engine; and the TDI, 5-cylinder, 2.5 liter turbodiesel engine. For most S80 engines, a choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmissions is available but the T6 engine has Geartronic transmission that is offered in two gearboxes — an automatic for driving style and a manual for driving pleasure.
