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!
