Volvo 360 3 Door. 1982 - 1989

History of the Volvo Car

Volvo 360-3D

Autumn 1982 saw the introduction of a new model in the Volvo range - the 360. The Volvo 360 was based on the 340 range and featured a 4-cylinder 2-litre engine. The "360" model designation was introduced to give these better-equipped and more powerful cars a profile of their own.

A sportier variant called the 360 GLT was also introduced at the same time, powered by a fuel injected version of the same engine.

The picture shows the 3-door version. There was also a 5-door hatchback, which was followed in 1983 by a 4-door sedan.
