Hmm...if it's going to be something of a cross between the existing V60, the new XC60 and the V90 it should be very interesting indeed...

Had a V90 as a loan car while my V60 was in for warranty work - it was the Sales Manager's car so top spec. Have to say that, apart from the colour (a rather wishy-washy (IMHO) blue) I loved it and even SWMBO was impressed. Trouble is the price tag they currently come with!!

And some possible full reveals (although speculation they’ve been photoshopped on swede USA forum)

That page that was shown earlier, is no longer there - maybe they were actual leaked pictures which Volvo have forced to be taken down..............

This is the really interesting bit:
"Prices are expected to start from £28,000 for the V60 - £8000 less than the XC60 in entry-level 2.0 D4 Momentum spec. This is an increase of more than £3000 over the previous car, but Volvo's move upmarket and the previous V60's long production run account for the jump. By comparison, the XC90 is more than £13,000 more expensive than the entry-level V90."

This could prove a winner for those wanting an SPA platform car in decent specification without breaking the £40k tax hurdle.
No doubt the V60 CC will also be an interesting proposition when it comes.

Interesting, while not a possibility for me unless I win the lottery, I do wonder when launch dates may be, and what the announcement and eventual release will do to used prices of current V60's, wouldn't mind if they dropped a bit, I'm looking to buy one!
Looks like it should be a handsome car, always going to be the case if the styling was based on the V90 though.

Personally I think, if it will look like the Autocar pics, it will be a very good looking car!

That small plus a T8 engine (or T6 for that matter) means it will be a rocket on wheels!

An analyse of the rear rake vs the V90. A little more upright but far from the Volvos of yesteryear...



(Apologies, as my pix are not scaling so coming in supersized from Imgur)
