Bonus! More about the 1998 Volvo V90
Volvo V90 Estate was introduced during the model year 1997 as a replacement for the Volvo 960 Estate.
When we compare the two models, we only find minor differences. Among the new features on the V90 were some new interior and exterior colours. It was more a question of bringing these models into line with the new model-name strategy first introduced in 1995 with the Volvo S40 and V40.
In 1998 production of Volvo V90 was discontinued.

Bonus! Volvo Facts
- In 1911, founders Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson registered Volvo as a trademark for ball bearings – Volvo means ‘I roll’ in Latin. When Gabrielsson and Larson moved into car manufacturing, they chose the ancient chemical symbol for iron as a logo to symbolise the strength and power of a Volvo.
