Leakage: Volvo XC60 shots hit the 'Net before Geneva
The Geneva Motor Show is right around the bend and the "leaks" are beginning to pop up left and right. The first major production model to surface is Volvo's new XC60, a cute 'ute that's instrumental to Volvo's future plans in the U.S. market.
The XC60 originally appeared on (lemme get this right) automenedzser.hu and the design stays faithful to the concept that bowed in Detroit back in 2007. While the front end doesn't carry over some of the concept's metallic adornments, the fascia, with its drawn headlamps, dual air dams and sweeping fenders, are present and accounted for. The rear end also closely resembles the concept's, complete with the shapely rear LED taillamps and curved hatch.
When the XC60 goes on sale, it's expected to be packing a combination of gasoline and diesel powerplants, including a 1.8-liter, 2.5-liter turbo and 3.2-liter six.
