With the 760 estate, introduced in early 1985, Volvo introduced what was virtually the finest estate car in the world.


The 'basic' version of the 760GLE estate was driven by a developed version of the French V6 engine previously used in the 260 Series, but this was supplemented by a very fast 4-cyl. Turbo version with Intercooler and with a 6-cyl. Diesel version with Intercooler which thanks to good performance and low fuel consumption offered superior comfort over long distances and an unparalleled cruising range.


The most extensive change to the 760GLE saloon took place in 1987, when the frontal appearance was changed. Unlike the saloon version, however, the 760 estate did not received the multi-link rear axle.
