Volvo 900 Series [940/960/S90/V90] review covering 1990 - 1998

Tuesday 15 November 2005

Volvo's everlasting 700 flowered into the 900-series in late 1990. The name remained until spring 1997, denoting 940 four-cylinder and 960 six-cylinder series cars. The 940 changed little in this period but the 960 became a far more modern executive saloon and estate, thanks to the addition of new engines and an extensive facelift in 1994.In fact, the origin of these cars went all the way back to March 1982, when the original 760 GLE was launched. However, a series of revisions meant that later cars shared almost nothing with the original V6-engined saloon. Like the 700 series range they replaced, the 900 series cars were very successful, especially as estates, making great family cars and load carriers. There are still a large number of well looked-after examples on the used market.
