Swedish automaker Volvo built its iconic and long-lasting 200 series of mid-size cars rear-wheel-drive from 1974 through 1993.  Production of the 240 ended on 14 May 1993, after nearly 20 years.  Originally known for its innovative safety features we now take for granted,  the Volvo 240 earned a reputation for its durability as well.

The 1993 Volvo 240 retained the boxy and angular design that had become a hallmark of the series. The car had a simple yet distinctive appearance, characterized by its straight lines, upright stance, and large windows. The front end featured a horizontally divided grille with the Volvo logo in the center, flanked by square headlights. The rear end had vertically stacked taillights and a relatively flat tailgate.

Inside, the 240 offered a functional and well-thought-out interior. The cabin provides spaciousness, comfortable seats, and a high driving position. The dashboard design was straightforward and ergonomic, featuring large and easy-to-read gauges. The interior materials were of decent quality, emphasizing durability and functionality over luxury.

Volvo has always strongly emphasized safety, and the 1993 Volvo 240 was no exception. The car boasted a robust safety cage construction with reinforced side-impact protection. It was also equipped with a number of safety features for its time, including dual front airbags, three-point seatbelts for all passengers, and anti-lock brakes (ABS) as an optional feature.

By 1993 the Volvo 240 featured the brand’s tried-and-true 114 horsepower, 2.3 Liter B23 inline four-cylinder engine.  While the 240 was not a high-performance vehicle, its engines were known for their reliability and longevity.

Transmissions available for the 240 included both manual and automatic options. The manual transmission was known for its solid feel and smooth shifts. Volvo 240s feature rear-wheel drive.

The Volvo 240 series, including the 1993 model, left a lasting legacy in the automotive world. It became renowned for its durability, earning a reputation for being able to withstand high mileage and harsh conditions. The longevity of these vehicles contributed to their popularity among car enthusiasts, and many Volvo 240s are still on the roads today, decades after their initial production.

In summary, the 1993 Volvo 240 was a quintessential representative of the boxy and reliable Volvo 200 series. It offered a no-nonsense approach to design and engineering, focusing on safety, functionality, and longevity. Its iconic appearance and reputation for durability have made it a beloved classic among automotive enthusiasts and collectors.

The 1993 Volvo 240 Sedan seller confirms he has owned the car since 1995, when he purchased the two-year-old car with just under 22K original miles.  In the nearly twenty-eight years of ownership since, the seller continued to keep his 240 well-maintained while accumulating an average of nine thousand miles annually.
