The first Volvos to emerge from the partnership with Mitsubishi are presented: the Volvo S40 sedan and the V40 wagon. These front-wheel-drive models are offered with a choice of three engines – two four-cylinder petrol options and a turbo diesel. Side-impact airbags are standard equipment in the Volvo S40/V40, and this year they also become standard in the Volvo 850 and 960.

The Volvo 480 is discontinued. Some 80,000 of these have been made in total.
