Nothing wrong with that, 4 cyl turbo is where its at. Volvo were spot on with the 940. Just doesn't sounds nice.

Rear end is more curved, different rear lights, different front end. Virtually everything else is the same except updated gearbox and engine management.

The 6304F & 6304S move pretty well for what they weigh. The 6304S2 is no faster than a base model 2000 subaru legacy wagon.

My 92 960 and 97 S90 will get a move on, i have left a 1UZ toyota cressida behind before, but my old 95 960.... my mate and i had a rolling start race in his legacy. Started at 80kph. Took fucking ages to hit 130, at which point we were still neck and neck.

Re:

You is jesting me. According to wiki the engine options are 4 cylinder 2.0L or 4 cylinder 2.0L hybrid.

Anyhow, when they're cheap enough you might see a white-haired old man driving one about, but then it might be a Honda Jazz.

My next question is: what is the difference between an S90 and a V90?

Dai was referring to the old S90 produced in the late 90's which was just a facelifted 960 with a 6 cylinder engine and rear wheel drive.

The 'new' S90 and V90 as you rightly say are only 2.0 4 cylinder maximum, which is a shame as it'll almost certainly hamper refinement compared to other cars in it's class, though I bet it has finally improved the turning circle of the FWD cars!

The 'S' is saloon and 'V' is an estate body shape
