The Volvo XC90 when new won sparkling reviews from journalists and with good reason. This 7 seat SUV offered practicality, that much craved high driving position and some of the very best safety tech the industry had to offer. However, the XC90 is getting on a bit and competitors are taking full advantage of this. Volvo are very soon to reveal their next-generation SUV but before then the Concept XC Coupe gives us a few clues as to how this future car will look.
Debuting at the 2014 Detroit motor show, the Volvo Concept XC Coupe may well be a two door, four seater car, but its design language and overall shape is what the XC90 will take for inspiration. This sleek crossover teams a long bonnet with shot overhangs to produce quite a majestic stance. The new XC90 will be the first Volvo to make use of the companies SPA platform that will eventually underpin the majority of their models.
