It appears as if a couple more spy shots taken via a shaky camera phone have leaked out of a Volvo factory/warehouse from an undisclosed location. First were shots of the V70 wagon, and now we have the XC70 in our sights, as well. These new shots are actually very telling compared with previous spy shots of the XC70 showing a test mule completely shrouded in camouflage. Out back the rear taillights now extend out farther near their base due to wider rear fenders, while up front we see a new nose that may also preview the face of a redesigned S60 sedan. The SUV-ified wagon retains rugged design cues like front and rear "skid plates" and matte black molding covering the lower part of the vehicle and fender flares. Might be just the thing for people coming out of SUVs and shopping for something that's more economical yet still rugged.
Hat tip goes out to August, thanks!

      Re: Paul (#1) the s60 is actually getting canceled. The s40 and s80 are in to close competetion for that car to be continued.

      I think it looks alot better than the current XC70. Seems there will be less diaper-plastics which probably meens that this version was planned from the begining.

      i hope the s60 gets that front end!

      It looks taller to me.

      I don't think I like that.

      Love the Audi banner at the top. Anyone have any idea as to what a "Fart Hinder" is? :)

      Yeah! It's a Volvo: The heads will warp at 50k, the tie rods and ball joints will need to be replaced every 10k - just like my late - non-lamented - XC90.

      At least it share window switches with Aston Martin!

      The front looks great but the back taillights are to huge.
