New Volvo XC 60

Recently Volvo released official photos of the new XC60 ‘sporty crossover’ the company is set to reveal at the forthcoming Geneva Auto Show. The design of the new car has been transformed greatly, but the production of the car is definitely based on the XC concept unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in 2007.

Steve Mattin, Volvo Cars Design Director says: “This car is changed with more emotive form and more energy than any other Volvo”. Really Volvo XC60 mix two car typologies – the kind of a conventional wagon with the attributes of the off-roading SUV. Off course XC60 follows on from other XC models with its athletic body, large wheels and high ground clearance.
Inside, the XC60 model is not as innovative as its concept precursor. The white iPod center console streaming off the IP was done away and being replaced with a more staid and even traditional IP design, that is complete with wood grain for the center console. The sale of the new car will start in Europe in the second half of 2008.
