In Norway, uniformed vehichles vary quite a lot, you'll see Mercedes C-classes, Opel Vectras (probably Insignias as well), Ford Mondeos, VW Passats, Toyota Avensises and, of course, Volvo V70s. I have probably forgotten quite a few. They even have Toyota Landcruisers in rural areas and a couple of Mercedes MLs for representative escort. When it comes to unmarked cars, it's much the same, although some fat-cat BMWs, Mercs and Volvo XC90s are available for special purposes. The Delta antiterror unit use Mercedes Gs.
I've never seen a C Class, Opel Vectra or Toyota Avensis in Norwegian Police markings, have you got any photos?

Wasn't the last big order for Police vehicles won by VW, I've also seen a number of Vito vans but have never yet seen a motorway patrol vehicle, I think police here rely to much on speed cameras which don't really work.

I realise this must come as a surprise to everyone, but police cars in Sweden are either Volvos or Saabs.

Sometimes you can see other cars than Volvos and Saabs. Sometimes it can be Mercedes for example and other cars. I like to see Swedish police cars who are not Volvo or Saab.

Romanian Police cars:

Seat Leon:


Mitsubishi Lancer:



Seat Exeo:



This ones were used just for few months because the dealers rented them for free. Now you can see many Dacia Logan on Romanian roads:



Police cars for government officials escort:





And a nice example of how cheap are Police cars (or how high are the bribes):

I remember stories from Poland in 2007 or so, when German BMW's just drove like maniacs on the motorway, because they thought the Polish police only had those old FSO's and could never catch them. But then the Polish police showed up with muscle cars as well and pulled over all those Germans

I love this car. Best looking police car in the world. It looks even better when it speeds by you on the highway. Really cool machine
And I'm looking forward to see the new Ford Taurus 2011 interceptor. It might look even better than Charger.

Main difference went under the bonnet. 125p was propelled by old 1300 or 1500 engines, Italian ones used very modern 1600 dohc engine developing 90bhp. There were minor changes in the body shell as well.

Then, after some time appeared a true rocket:




Essentially the car was a rebodied Polski Fiat 125p, which Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych (FSO) built under license from Fiat, based on the Fiat 125. The internal components, modernized engine, (pistons and carburetor), chassis, and other mechanical, were straight from the Polski Fiat 125p, but clothed in an entirely new hatchback body designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The car was meant to be equipped with Fiat's DOHC engines in the 1980s, but a crisis at the time made the purchase of a license from Fiat impossible. This is also why the 125p was produced simultaneously with the Polonez for more than a decade. Moreover, mechanical modernization only took place when it could be applied to both cars. This situation finally changed after the production of the 125p ended in 1991.

An advantage of the Polonez is its passive safety. Crash tests were performed in 1994 according to EU safety regulations so that the Polonez could be exported worldwide. They proved the car to be very safe. The Caro 1.9GLD hitting a concrete block (without an energy-absorbing metal cage) with 40% of the front at 50 km/h (31 mph) survived very well. All doors could be opened without any difficulty, there were no critical injuries for passengers, and no fuel leakage occurred.wiki
Wow I never though that back then in Poland the Police would be called Milicja like it is in Ukraine. Why did they change it to Policja?? In Ukraine we still got the Milicja(Міліція)

It's the same in Bulgaria. The police force in the whole Eastern Block was called Militia. Later, as the democratic changes started the Militia was transformed into Police (Милиция-> Полиция in Bulgarian).
