Volvo is slated to reveal a new product at the Geneva Motor Show in a couple weeks. Unlike most automakers, Volvo isn’t saying which new product they’re going to reveal there, instead just issuing the above teaser image. The list of potential products it could be is fairly small, so our bests are on this being the 2018 XC60.
What we do know is that a new XC60 is slated to launch in North America later this year. From a timing perspective, it would seem most plausible that Volvo show this product now since it’s the next one to rollout.
As expected, the new XC60 is going to leverage the very successful design them first embarked on by the 90 Series Volvos. This means the XC60 clearly has the ‘Thor Hammer” headlights, albeit slightly revised from the XC90 and S90 products. We fully expect the beauty to continue beyond the front clip if the 90 Series cars are any indicator.
Like the 90’s, the XC60 will be built upon Volvo’s Scalable Premium Architecture (SPA). Only in the XC60’s case, it is scaled down to a more midsize fit.
Power for the XC60 will likely come from Volvo’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, in both gas and diesel forms. A hybrid variant is also a potential, but hasn’t been confirmed just yet.
