I'm really digging the new Volvo designs. They're like the Swedish Audi.

2010 S60 Concept






http://www.autoblog.com/2008/12/16/d...o-s60-concept/

Next month in Detroit, the Volvo S60 Concept will serve up a teaser for the 2010 production sedan that'll likely debut later in the show season. The S60 Concept demonstrates that Volvo's new sedan will ditch the rather conservative duds it currently wears in favor of a new, much more aggressive visual ensemble. Profile views show off a coupe-ish roofline, while pointed headlights extend back onto the fenders and flank a reshaped, more detailed grille up front. The concept's rear is similarly detailed, with LED taillamps that hide the various signal colors until they are actually illuminated.Inside, the cabin is predictably heavy on the typical concept stuff -- modern-looking seats, light colors and crystalline accents -- while still hinting at the next S60's instrumentation layout. Interesting features include a shifter that's left horizontal when the car is cruising in automatic mode, but can be flipped up for a better grip when the driver wants to select gears manually. The S60 Concept has no B-pillar and features truck rear doors that open outward and slide back out of the way so that showgoers can better ogle the fancy interior. Don't expect anything of the sort to make it to production.Safety features, as you would expect, are also prevalent. The S60 Concept gives us our first look at Volvo's Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake, which will make its debut on the production car. The system uses radar, a camera, and a control unit to effectively eliminate low-speed pedestrian collisions (at speeds under 12 mph or so) and drastically reduce the force of impact in scenarios involving higher speeds. The system, which allows for full braking power to be employed in emergency, collision-imminent situations without driver input, should help cut down on rear-end crashes as well. Volvo's Active Cruise Control system has also been upgraded; it now maintains the car's distance from the vehicle ahead right down to a stop, adding low-speed functionality that was previously unavailable. Power comes from a GTDi (gasoline turbocharged direct-injection) four-cylinder making around 179 horsepower mated to a Powershift dual-clutch gearbox. An additional suite of efficiency features, including start/stop functionality, a "DRIVe" economy mode, and various aerodynamic enhancements, helps deliver fuel economy in the neighborhood of 47mpg while keeping CO2 emissions under 120 g/km. Hopefully, all that goodness makes its way into the production car as well. Volvo says that its first car featuring GTDi "will appear in 2009." In any case, we should learn more next month when the Detroit show (or what's left of it, anyway) gets rolling.

There's a lot of Euro Ford 'Kinetic' design in there from Peter Horbury. Nice!

Really nice looking. Some styling cues from the ISX50, but the overall design is aggressive and sleek.

Looks good, but don't like the color or the wheels.

Off topic, I was looking at an S60 R before I got my TL. Nice car, fast as fuck. But didn't want to deal with the $$$ maintenance bills

the suicide doors are unrealistic, along with the glass roof.. for a company that may not exist next year, please believe they are looking for alternatives to cut costs.

fine looking car nonetheless

do you have any links to where they have hard facts that Volvo's on the verge? I mean... what car company isn't in a bad situation right now? Yeah, some more than others... but I don't think Volvo's in that deep...

besides... I've seen a LOT more other concepts that were a lot more unrealistic than this one...

the glass top shown in the concept IS most likely NOT going to happen, but probably be more like the glass top you see on the MB E-Class and Audi's... heck, even the new Maximas have glass tops...

umm. Ford was quite quick to put them on the chopping block.

sure they would most likely be bought out, but their level of security is on the line moreso than most.

right, I understand Volvo's for sale... but do you honestly think nobody's going to buy it and the brand will just disappear like... say Oldsmobile?

^ Yeah. It's a beautiful concept. When I saw the real world pics I had to add them. The next S60 should be as close to this as Volvo can possibly manage.
