The S80 is more like Volvo's full size car.The S60 and the V70 are the same except for the sedan and wagon.They are built on the same platform.But the S80 is larger than the S60/V70.

I heard the V70 was built on the S80 platform not the S60. My aunt owns an S80 and loves it. Both cars are rated really high.

Go for the V70.I have had an S80 and as stated they are built on the same lines the V70 is much more versitile.You get an S80 with the V70!! I would like to see anyone getting more cargo in an S80 than a V70,the ride is as good and vision i would say better in the V70,also got reversing sensors fitted to mine so that helps even more,but i managed before i had them fitted,i think you tend to struggle more with the S80 due to the boot overhang not being visible when reversing.Plus the V70 looks better
