volvo XC50

To follow up on Stuart's post on Volvo's smaller SUV, Automobile Magazine says that Volvo has confirmed the XC50.


Like the Volvo XC90 but looking for something a little more compact? Your wish may be granted with the Volvo XC50, expected to debut in mid-2006 as a 2007 model. Built on Ford's C1 platform (also home to the new Land Rover Freelander), various derivations of the vehicle will feature five- and six-cylinder engines starting at 165 hp.
