VOLVO 245 ESTATE

5-door 5-seater estate.

The direct successor to the 145 estate, using the same rear body shell coupled to the 240 saloon's nose and MacPherson strut front suspension. Same engine line, in same periods, as for 240 saloons, but still no diesel engined varieties here. Like the 145, amazingly capacious, rugged and versatile. But did it really have to look so ugly?
