The VOLVO 240 was very popular and VOLVO sold millions of them on a period of 19 years, from 1975 to 1993. If you think it looks rather retro you are right; the 240 body style is an evolution of the Volvo 140 Series introduced in 1967 and some parts like the windshield is the same from 1967 to 1993 ! See also the Volvo 164 Series

The VOLVO 240 was available in 2 door, 4 door and station wagon chassis style. You will also find them in different trim and performance levels, from the basic DL to the performant Turbo version. Each version is explained in the tables below.

A lot of 240s are still registered and used daily today. Given its current popularity and inherent qualities it is certain to become a great classic, much like the Volks Beetle and VOLVO 1800.
