I found this picture on Volvo's media website under the "All-New Volvo S80 Design" topic.<p><A HREF="http://img96.imageshack.us/my.php?image=s80design3nt.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/7748/s80design3nt.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>On this picture you can see a clay model S80 in the design studio in Gothenburg, and in the background a C70 model (which I think is based on the next generation S60/V70). And behing this C70, you can see drawings of some strange station wagon cars that look like the new C70's front face...<p><A HREF="http://img96.imageshack.us/my.php?image=nextv706bp.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/3564/nextv706bp.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p> Do you thinks it's gonna be the next V70 ?

Re: Next generation V70 ? (nonocake)

Little picture, you can't see anything.<br>Volvo has been very hush hush about the new V70, no spy anything, so we'll all have to wait and see what comes out in the next several months.<br>Hard to top the current P2 design which is still a very pleasing to the eye classic and aging well.<br>I was thinking that today when I came on a Willow Green (rare, in itself) V70 with Euro racks and 17's, it looked very nice. It had the chrome bumper strips which accented this particular wagon very well. I thought how very nice this one looked.<br>However, with current Volvo thinking, design and management, they WILL screw the new one up, trust me on this one <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Next generation V70 ? (JRL)

all i will say Jim, is that my friends who work at the torslanda plant told us to get our v70 now, or at the latest an 07. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>and we got a 2006 v70 2.5t in willow green pearl and it does look good to me. it is in port hueneme waiting for a ride up here right now. we drove it around goteborg for a couple days with our portable nav system who took a couple days off work. the v70 is still a volvo, but it will not take the new boys long to screw it up. i agree with you James.

actually I think the current generation V70's rear end still looks boxy, and i hope the next generation will look more sporty (like the V50)

Re: (McDonald)

Problem is, if you round off the rear hatch (a la MBZ) you lose A LOT of cargo space and the ability for large boxes to be loaded towards the rear of the wagon,<br>So, what do you want, something more "modern" that doesn't load nealy as well as the current wagon or a vehicle that is USEFULL which a wagon is supposed to be <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> Try loading a (Dodge) Magnum with it's cool rear hatch as you would a Volvo, you can't, I tried

Re: (JRL)

if the new design is truely like the v50, which i do not disbelieve. that is why my friends, knowing me, told me to get one now. they made NO mention of the new car.<p>those that know don't talk, those that talk don't know; that is the way it is supposed to be. but there is always someone who wants to be a big shot<br>even though they should just keep promises and be quiet.<p>edit; jim i totally agree with you. the utility will be greatly compromised. i think a lot of my neighbors would be looking elsewhere. i know i would not buy a car that is effectively an old "hatchback" design.

Re: (r_driver04)

JRL's post is right on target, if the wagon is any less boxy then the current ones you are going to lose practical space

A storage box can only be modernized so much...<br>still has to be a box to function
