Scandinavian Design will to a trademark in those time. This also applies to many other things, for example for furniture. From the DAF predecessor, only slightly changed is nothing left, front-wheel drive instead of variomatic rear. Only the engine supplier Renault is retained. A turbocharger provides for the required performance at the sportier models. In this class, 200 km/h been not yet very often achieved.

Integrated roll-over bar
Reinforcements in the doors
Seatbelt height adjustment
New type of belt tensioners

But the car still offers other qualities. The inspection works are drastically reduced, thereby lowers the maintenance costs in addition to the longevity said of Volvo. 10/13
