Shown above are examples of the second generation of the VOLVO 240 and 260. The hood is not flat anymore, the center was raised and 2 round or 2 rectangular headlights are located on each side (2 low beam, 2 high beam lamps). The 2 round headlights were used in 1979 on the 240 station wagon and on earlier 260's. Most models came with 2 rectangular headlights up to 1985. European models had a different front end. The hood, grill and headlights were different in europe during this period.

VOLVO 244 DL 1992

Starting in 1986 and up to the last production year 1993 the VOLVO 240 front end looked like the car shown above. This style is similar to the models sold in Europe with big square headlights. The trunk lid is domed, the bumpers are smaller and covered with plastic, the lower edge of the doors have a wide plastic trim and the mirrors are more aerodynamic than earlier models
