Here's checking out Volvo's brand new Concept XC Coupe before its 2014 Detroit debut. Volvo's primary goal with the XC Coupe is to preview the brand's new design language for crossover and SUV vehicles, starting with the next generation XC90.
Three Volvo concept cars are created to highlight "vital elements" of the new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA).
"[The] Concept XC Coupe also shows how clever engineering makes it possible for us to reinforce our world-leading safety without compromising design, size or weight," said Volvo's head designer Thomas Ingenlath. "Thanks to extensive use of high-strength boron steel and structures with new, ingenious decoupling we can make SPA cars more compact and safer at the same time."
“Both concept cars show how we can shape our cars from now on. We add emotional value to the Volvo brand with the calm, confident beauty that is the hallmark of Scandinavian design,” said Ingenlath.
“Volvo Concept XC in another demonstration of what our new architecture is capable of. 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. Volvo Concept XC is more of a Cross Country version of a sleek sports wagon.”
