Volvo 740

If being at the wheel of an automotive tank this winter will make you feel safer, it’s hard to think of a more suitable contender than the Volvo 740. Available in saloon or estate guises, this ultra-boxy, incredibly strong old soldier is the best way of getting as much metal around you as possible for the least amount of cash.

Launched in 1984, the 740 built on Volvo’s reputation for safety and strength, and sold well until finally replaced by the slightly less angular 940. Buy either one now for £500-1500 and enjoy being cocooned Swedish-style.
