Volvo 440 History

The Volvo 440 was introduced in 1987 as a replacement for the 340 and was marketed with the Volvo safety features in mind. This car built in Holland, not in Sweden and initially used the 1.7L Renault designed engine. In 1991 the 1.7L was replaced with the 1.6 and 1.8L versions, with the 2.0L being introduced in 1992. The initial version was criticised for its appearance and it eventually received a makeover in 1992 making it curvier and more appealing. The 1.9 diesel engine was introduced in 1994 but by then the sales of this car were seriously decreasing. The 440 was discontinued at the end of 1996, to be replaced with the Volvo V40.
