1992 Volvo 460 Review
Excellent performance for its age, class and displacement, good mileage
If you hate frenchies, because this car is technically a Renault.
Most Bang For Buck If You Want A Car From Price Between 500-1000€. — Lovely feeling of acceleration when the turbocharger charges from low (1750->) revs. Acceleration from 80kmh to 120kmh is excellent for its displacement. in other words the car has good low rpm torque (185nm@1750-4500 stock). It only has 120hp stock, but boosting of performance is easy; just turn the wastegate rod and get way more power and torque to 3500-5500rpm area. Also lightweight (only 1070kgs). So don't just look at the numbers of the engine or you'll leave behind! Good handling at turns, although too mild regular suspension kills the loveliness in corners. Unclear feeling at middle part of steering, so driving on highway is not as pleasing as it would be in a bigger Volvo. Also the regular seat doesn't offer much of side support. Brakes are effective and have good feel. Rusts like a 80's japanese and electricity bucks like in a french car. Quality way behind big Volvos. Speaking of turbocharged cars, this isn't a thirsty one 7,5-8 litres/100 km combined if in good shape. Cheap to purchase, cheap spare parts, cheap tuning. The car is wonderful when all troubles (eg. troubling instrument panel) are fixed. This was for the 1,7 turbo variant of Volvo 460. Otherwise look my Volvo 460 2,0 SE
Primary Use: Commuting to work

High mileage, good performance
If you don't like Volvos, especially little ones.
Good, Cheap To Buy And Compared To It's Price It Has Good Performance. — I like its performance, high mileage, driveability, looks, equipment, seats, low revs on highway. etc. What I dislike in it is that the quality is not comparable to other Volvos. I don't like its chassis, because it's too soft for me.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Strong...only in accidents...
Volvo 460 1.8 — It has proved to be a very reliable car that also gives a rather save feeling to drive. Even though it doesn't seem to be a very fast car at first, it can be surprisingly vivid with the throttle pushed down. It is a bit thirsty perhaps. But it ran on LPG so... I like the leather interior, but the suspension is pretty though and too soft at the back. Resulting in driving with the springs completely down when you take a few friends and some luggage. The original Volvo radio is very nice. The gearbox-changes are pretty difficult when it's cold. It gets better when warmed up, but the first always is rather hard to get into (worn synchros?) and the fifth isn't always easy to find.
Primary Use: Family transportation

Good First Car.. Nothing More Than That
This car is a good vehicle and it's a kind of a pretty Volvo. Not a high performance car but a solid one. It's a 1.8 liter single injection with 109 hp and about 170 nm. So, that's a little bit about ... Read More

Good Car But Don't Expect It To Be A Sportscar.
Performance is virtually non existing. It is kind of slow, the braking is acceptable and the handling is horrible (I have to mount a rear roll bar.) I made quite a lot of repairs on the car, intake ga... Read More
- Performance: Nothing surprising in it's performance; about 8-9s 0-100km/h, nothing wrong with brakes.. Handling is precise, even too precise when driving 60km/h or faster. - Build Quality: Only so... Read More
Car For A Lifetime... Can't Sell It.
Good looking, confortable car, relatively good driving. Slow acceleration response, low mileage (no more than 6 Km/liter), rather squeaky for my taste. Worst part: forward train b/c the terminals have... Read More
Cheap, crappy car. Not a Volvo in it's means but was reliable the time I had to drive it. Worked fine and ran fine. Quite good fuel economy for such a old car with 1.7l engine. On the inside everythi... Read More
Most Surprising Car I Have Owned...
This car was a Volvo 460 Turbo, with a 1.7 litre petrol engine. 0-60 in around 7 seconds and top end of (in excess of) 135MPH. Very solid with handling and taught me alot about aggresive driving. It a... Read More
An Underestimated One
I should have gone for the turbocharged version, if budget had only permitted. But the 460 GLE I owned was real fun to drive around, and easy to handle. Read More
