940 estate bows out with a Celebration

VOLVO is dropping the 940 estate from its line-up but is signing off with a 940 Celebration featuring a host of equipment and costing £18,425 on the road. The 940, one of the largest estate cars on the market, was originally launched as the 700 series in 1985 and revised as the 940 in 1990. More than 151,000 models have been sold, helping Volvo dominate the estate sector.

The 940 Celebration is only available as an estate and is powered by the 2.3-litre light pressure turbo engine which powers the entire 940 range. The Celebration model features metallic paint, colour co-ordinated bumpers, sports grille, roof rails and 15-inch alloy wheels, leather trim, air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, leather steering wheel, RDS radio cassette. heated front seats, headlamp wash/wipers, ABS brakes, electrically heated front seats and adjustable door mirrors.

Volvo is now taking final orders for the 940 saloon, which will not be available in Celebration form. A spokesman said the model was being dropped as there was no 'significant overlap' between the current 940 range and the remainder of Volvo's line-up.Volvo's estate line-up now consists of the V40, V70 and V90.
