Volvo 850Volvo 850 is the first front-wheel drive car to be exported to North America by its Swedish manufacturer. It is a small executive car that was manufactured by Volvo Cars during 1992-1997.
850 was considered among of the largest Swedish engineering projects. Emerging as Volvo's best-seller in the mid-1990s, the 850 featured an all-aluminum 20-valve five-cylinder engine. Standard Volvo 850 equipment include antilock brakes, dual front airbags, head restraints and three-point seat belts for all passengers, power windows/door locks/ mirrors, cruise and dual zone climate controls. Side torso airbags were offered as an option for the 1995 model, a world’s first.
