VOLVO 345 (1979-1991)
The 340-series soon became very popular in a number of countries in Europe. To further widen its appeal to many customers and markets demanding at least four doors, a 5-door version called 345 was introduced in the autumn of 1979, as the 1980 model year.
The 5-door version of the 300 series soon became a very popular car. It became the last-produced version in the 300 series being produced up to 1991, by which time the 3- and 4-door versions were not longer being made.
