Tracing the History of the Volvo Luxury Sedan Part III: The Volvo 960

The Volvo 960, released in 1990 as a 1991 model year vehicle represented the next evolution of Volvo luxury sedans, following the 760. The 960 was distinguished with softer edges, and a more flowing design both on the outside, and the inside.
Also distinct was a new 24 valve 6 cylinder engine, producing smooth power and minimal vibration. The 960 continued Volvo's tradition of phenomenal seats and amazing safety.
In 1995 the 960 was re-styled and refined even further. In 1997, the 960 became the S90, to distinguish itself with Volvo's new naming nomenclature (S representing sedan, V representing Versatility and C representing coupe).
Of course, today's Volvo S80 continues the tradition of Volvo luxury with an emphasis on Safety (its been an IIHS Top Safety Pick for several years running) and value...with Safe and Secure 5 year no-charge maintenance Coverage. Find yours in York at or Mechanicsburg at
