The design concept has been built to preview the 2015 XC90, and adopts a stylish exterior with a prominent grille, LED-infused headlights and plastic body cladding. The concept features gently flowing surfaces, a dual exhaust system and distinctive taillights. To give a complete SUV look, chunky side sills, 21-inch wheels and skid plates have been added at the front and rearvolvo-xc-concept-coupe (4).

The interior of the concept features four individual seats that are separated by a full-length center console. A large infotainment system and a rear passenger control panel are also present.

Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo design vice president, explained: “It brings us a bit closer to the all-new XC90. But it goes without saying that a three-row seven-seater will have a larger and fuller look than this four-seater. The Concept XC Coupé is more of a Cross Country version of a sleek sports wagon.”

The SPA platform will underpin everything from the S60 up and is a major step forward for Volvo. Even the seven-seater XC90 will use only four-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. The most powerful petrol will be supercharged and turbocharged to produce 302bhp, while a hybrid version of the same engine will produce 400bhp and 600Nm of torque.
