Volvo 740 History

Two years after the introduction of the Volvo 700 series the 740 was released in 1984 as a more affordable version of the luxurious 760. The 740 was originally intended as a more luxurious version to the 200 series. In 1990 the 740 had a slight makeover which mainly affected the headlights and rear lights and also some mechanical improvements. In 1992, the last year of production for this vehicle, it received a newly designed dashboard, similar to the dashboard in the 760. In 1992 this car was replaced with the Volvo 940.
