Hello Len, I dont think so ... I know the S40 uses the Volvo P1 platform and I also know the P1+ is also used in the Mazda 6 series ... but I believe the Laguna1 shares the same platform as the Espace3 (the previous Espace 2 was the Renault 21 estate platform.)

I know the previous Volvo 400 series used the Mitsubishi Charisma platform that was called the "Ned Car" as both cars were virtually identical apart from some external body panels and built in the old DAF factory in Belgium.

Just my 2p's worth

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
