Sketch Monkey decided to imagine what the Swedish Volvo 240 sedan will look like in the 2020 model year.

The Swedish company Volvo was able to make several cars with a very memorable design – the 240 sedan can be called one of these cars. Apparently, therefore, the famous artist Sketch Monkey decided to imagine what this model will look like today, using the modern style of the brand.

One of the most significant models in the history of Volvo remains as square as before in this render, which was created using the Photoshop graphics editor.

The artist separately noted that the classic brick-like body shape of the 240 was taken as the basis. The car received alloy wheels borrowed from the flagship S90 sedan and uses “sharp” C-shaped taillights adapted for a wide car body.

Sketch Monkey kept the clean and simple lines of the original 240, while retaining the huge trunk lid, which, obviously, will no longer be used in the design of new automaker models. The car still looks very impressive, and it would be interesting for us to look at such a performance of the car, as they say, “live”. Needless to say, Volvo’s management is unlikely to ever decide to revive the once-popular 240 sedan, which was sold in the 1970s.

Many will say: “Leave the creation of such renders to the designers of the company itself,” but there is nothing wrong with just watching an independent artist present the classic design of the once popular model, adapted to Volvo’s modern design language.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a restyled Geely Jiaji based on Volvo appeared on sale. Geely Corporation announced the start of sales of the updated minivan Geely Jiaji, which was built together with Volvo specialists.
