Click above for more shots of the Volvo XC60.

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.

      not as cool as the concept (obviously). it looks like an awkward XC90. Isn't there a way to make a small luxury SUV without it looking awkward? The X3,GLK, EX, etc all look weird as hell.

      Anyway, I like the inside of it; the dash is interesting

      This is the first Volvo that looks 'good' in my eyes.

      Looks like a cartoon-y, buck-toothed, soft, melted Volvo -as interpreted by the Hyundai styling team.

      It needs more masculine, strong, edgy, boxy styling.

      I agree, I would like to see a bigger version that will compete against the Infiniti FX. Not a 7-seater, but one that is midsize with a V6.

      Nice looking car, and not a second too late to get the best out of the new CUV crave. They might get this right.

      Though I agree a diesel will be great to see the 1.8 and 2.5t will both have better than average mileage for the class.
