1990 - 1997


The Volvo 960 Estate was introduced in the autumn of 1990 together with a number of new models for model year 1991. The Volvo 960 Estate carried over the tradition of 6-cylinder estate models in the Volvo programme from the 760.

This new 960 Estate was the natural choice for descerning customers who wanted a car offering a unique combination of comfort, safety, ergonomics, space and versatility, a combination much appreciated by drivers and passengers interested in activities like golf, sailing or hunting.

Model year 1995 saw the 960 Estate undergo a comprehensive redesign. The face-lift to the front gave a fresh appearance. Under the skin, the chassis was almost completely new, and a 2.5 litre version of the 6-cylinder engine was added to the previous 3-litre.

Another important new feature for the Volvo 960 Estate for 1995 was the introduction of the latest generation of advanced individual multi-link rear suspension, adding to comfort and road holding properties.

The end for the Volvo 960 Estate came in model year 1997, when the replacement Volvo V90 was introduced.
