Volvo has teased its upcoming Volvo XC60, which will see a global debut at the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
While the teaser does give us a few points to nimble on, we expect more revelations over the course of next few days as we draw closer to the official unveil on March 7, 2017.
The media has been calling the Volvo XC60 the baby XC90 and while that does indicate that there is a possibility that the new XC60 could draw design cues from the XC90, there have been reports that the similarities will not be limited to design, but also borrow structure and shape of the elder sibling.
We will be seeing the new XC60 feature Thor’s Hammer LED daytime running lights and the front grille. Reports have also been floating around that the XC60 is expected to look like a downsized version of the XC90 from the overall perspective.
The latest teaser [embedded above] shows the profile of the entire Volvo XC60 draped in a semi-revealing cover exposing some of the minor design details, the window line and Volvo’s signature vertical LED taillamps. There is a sharp character line running along the entire length of the SUV, and the new XC60 also appears to have a longer wheelbase when compared with the outgoing model.
The teaser indicates that the SUV has grown in terms of dimension as well so you can also expect a slightly larger cabin and increased boot space. Also judging by the previous spy images of the SUV, the rear section seems to have retained some design bits of the outgoing XC60.
As far as the internals are concerned, the new Volvo XC60 will be powered by a range of turbocharged four-cylinder engines. The powertrain list is also expected to include a 254bhp 2.0-liter petrol engine and a plug-in hybrid derivative is also on the card that is expected to receive a 1.5-liter, turbocharged, three-cylinder petrol engine paired to an electric motor to produce a combined output of approximately 250bhp.
