Our compatriot in the cubicle over at Winding Road received some shots of the new Volvo XC70 and despite its Missy Elliotian-camo, a few notable design cues are apparent.
The Cross-Country receives a mildly angled D-pillar and side mirror-embedded turn signals that seem to be the trend du jour on several new models. Although the plastic-clad front-end doesn't lend much detail, it's obvious that a more aggressive snout will make an appearance, that, along with more bubbled fender flares hint at the XC's off-road prowess.

Click on over to "the Road" for full shots of the Swede's departure from the "brick on wheels" school of design and be sure to check out the last photo of one pissed off Volvo employee, who's apparently a big fan of "nawz."
