In addition to sporting a super stylish exterior and interior, a 311-horsepower V8 engine and all-wheel drive, the new Volvo S80 (starting at $38,700) is absolutely packed with innovative acronyms. Owners of this sweet ride get the Personal Car Communicator (PCC) with heartbeat sensor, which can alert you if there's an intruder inside your car before you get too close. You also get the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with rear-facing digital cameras in the side-view mirrors that detect other cars that might be in your blind spots as you change lanes. Plus, the car also has Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Collision Warning and Brake Support (CWBS), which helps keep you from hitting the car in front of you as you lean down to pick up that lipstick rolling around the floorboard.
