Volvo has introduced the Volvo Concept XC Coupé which will make its public debut at the 2014 North American International Motor Show in Detroit. Said to be inspired by the design of modern sports equipment and built on Volvo’s new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), the XC Coupé previews the brand’s new design language for crossover and SUV vehicles, starting with the next generation XC90.
The two-door, four-seater Volvo Concept XC Coupé has a strong connection with its sibling, the Volvo Concept Coupé. However, the larger 21-inch wheels, the more accentuated wheel-arches and the taller roofline all contribute to a more robust impression and a fuller, capable look.
This is emphasised by details such as the new bonnet and a beltline that spans the length of the car. In addition, the design team has also given traditional SUV elements, such as side mouldings and skid plates, a modern interpretation. They are more integrated into the sleek design, flush with the surrounding body areas.
Volvo Concept Coupé, the face of the Volvo Concept XC Coupé is characterised by a new topography on the bonnet and the ‘floating’ grille, flanked by headlights featuring new T-shaped DRL light guides. The rear light signature is also a distinctive element in the new design direction of Volvo Cars.
