Volvo’s reputation for being safe, reliable and functional had to come from somewhere, and the 850 did its part to cement these characteristics as brand hallmarks, and introduce a few others along the way. Not only was it stylish, great to drive and packed full of performance, value for money was also a main feature too. There’s no doubting the fact this car helped the Swedish company to establish itself as a major player, and it’s still attractive today for those on a tight budget.
Despite having quite a short life that ran from 1992 to 1997, over a million Volvo 850 cars were produced worldwide. It could be bought in both saloon and estate formats, and was packed full of quality equipment as well. Despite its boxy appearance, this was a premium car overall, and several different upgraded versions were released, as well as performance models- most notable the T-5R and 850R. Unsurprisingly, the Volvo competed in several motorsport events, enjoying much success.
Even though the Volvo did have a rectangular shape, especially the estate version, it was a handsome looking car that really got stuck into the family and executive car market. Very noticeable, the chrome front grille and big alloy wheels certainly made is stand out. The interior is great too, and is very functional in design. Several different trim levels existed and sported a range of different equipment, but overall it was fully loaded. Comfortable seats, a lot of space, a big boot and some seriously high safety levels meant it could be used on a daily basis with confidence.
To drive the 850 was pleasant to drive, with sporty models really able to get the adrenaline pumping. The range of engines, such as the T5 diesel, allowed it to get up to speed nicely without being overly thirsty on fuel. Great handling, a lot of grip and a comfortable ride meant it was more than a match for British roads back then, and still is today.
