VOLVO 460 (1989-1996)

The Volvo 460 was launched in 1989 as the notchback version of the front-wheel-drive 440 hatchback.


The Volvo 460 had the same basic technical structure and layout as the 480 sports coupé. This means it shared the sports model's transverse engine and front wheel drive, and of course it reaped the benefits of the 480's excellent handling and road holding.


During its model life, the 460 was available with a number of different engines ranging from 1.6 to 2.0 litres. All were 4-cylinder units with a single overhead camshaft, and all were developed from the same engine family.
