"A stoic masterpiece of an estate born from Nordic taste and lifestyle."
Volvo made its mark in the U.S. as a producer of stylish and sturdy station wagons. And the 240 Wagon, introduced in 1974, was no exception. Created in response to the American station wagon boom of the 1950s, Volvo station wagons, with their ongoing policy of simple and sturdy construction, were among the highest quality models on the market. They were never head-turning high-performance cars, but their practicality and interiors, brimming with that unique Northern European ambiance, helped established Volvo's safety-first brand image. At the time, Volvo used a three-digit format for its car names. The rule was that the first digit represented the series name, the second signified the number of cylinders in the engine, and the third indicated the number of doors. Thus, the 245 was a 200 Series with an inline-4 that had 5 doors.
The drive system was a conventional FR (Front-engine, Rear-drive. The engine was a liquid-cooled pushrod inline-4 that came in two displacements, 1985 cc and 2127 cc, the latter available in both carbureted and fuel-injected versions. The smaller engine produces 81 BHP while the carbureted version of the 2.1-liter pumped out 96 BHP. The fuel-injected variant produced 121 BHP.
Volvo's high standard for safety was already one of the company's trademarks, and the 240 Wagon was a shining example of this. Although airbags were not yet available, safety features like crushable body construction, 5-mph bumpers, and 3-point seatbelts were standard equipment.
