Volvo Teases New Model

Volvo has released a picture of a new car ahead of the Geneva Motor Show, which opens to the public on March 9. Although the Swedish manufacturer hasn’t revealed what the new model is yet, based on everything we know, it’s a pretty safe bet that it’s the new XC60.

Whatever the case, this front end is certainly changed. Although this image shares the XC90’s “Thor’s Hammer” headlights, here the hammer’s handle extends all the way to the grille.

The XC60 is Volvo’s mid-size SUV. Although it’s smaller than the XC90, it will be based on the same Scalable Premium Architecture (SPA platform). As such, power is likely to come from the 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder engine, with the potential for a hybrid and even an all-electric drivetrain, as well.

The XC60 will be joined by an S60 sedan and V60 wagon, filling out the range, when it arrives. Expect to the see the XC60 as a 2018 model.
