    Oops: Here's The Volvo XC40

    Volvo has been offering up teasers of its upcoming XC40 crossover, but some Volvo divisions didn't get the memo. Volvo Hungary appears to have accidentally released a video of the XC40 that shows off, well, the whole thing.

    Unsurprisingly, the XC40 is borrowing copious amounts of design influence from the Volvo 40.1 Concept, which is a good thing. There's a floating roof design, along with an overall family appearance that's similar to the XC60 and XC90 crossovers.

    There aren't as many views of the interior in the leaked video, so the overall look inside is still a bit mysterious. What we can tell is that it, too, has a lot of family influence from the rest of the Volvo lineup with cues such as a large touchscreen surrounded by a simplistic dash panel design. From what we can see, the interior of the XC40 appears appropriately less luxury than the XC90.

    Volvo has previously said the XC40 will offer a vibrant color palette for its interior, with several options to individualize it.

    The XC40 is riding on Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture, which is shared with its mothership company, Chinese automaker Geely. Engines and other details on the XC40 have yet to be released, but we can expect a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine to be part of the mix. It is also given there will be a plug-in hybrid version as Volvo is on a quest to electrify all models.

    Expect further details and better views of the XC40 on September 21st.

    Kind of odd looking. I really like the looks of the rest of the Volvo vehicles, but this one looks really strange. I agree, kind of Compass like.

    The whole thing looks odd.
