The Duett is an automobile from Volvo that was in production from 1953 to 1969.

The name Duett was intended to signify a car that could be used as a delivery vehicle during the week and as a comfortable sedan away from work.

The Duett was produced in three body styles: an estate car (or station wagon), a panel van, and, in small numbers, a bare chassis with no body from the windshield rearward.

The design is based on the Volvo PV sedan and shares its engine and front suspension with that model. However, unlike the PV, which had a unibody design and a coil spring rear suspension, the Duett used a ladder frame with leaf springs supporting the rear.

The PV-445's bodywork was based on the PV-444 saloon car and shared its two-piece flat paned windshield.

The P-210 replaced the P-445 in the fall of 1960. It is most easily distinguishable from the PV-445 by its use of a single-piece curved windshield, which it shares with the PV-544.

The final P-210 rolled off the line in 1969, four years after the end of production of the PV-544 on which it was based. The Duett was replaced by the Volvo Amazon estate wagon.
