Volvo S60 concept ready to go

Volvo S60 Concept fq

At next month’s Detroit Auto Show, the Volvo S60 concept will be unveiled and will act as a teaser for the 2010 production sedan that should debut later next year. The S60 Concept demonstrates that Volvo’s new sedan will ditch the rather conservative get-up it currently wears in favour of a new, aggressive look. Profile views show off a coupe-styled roofline, while pointed headlights recline back onto the fenders and flank a reshaped Volvo grille up front. The concept’s rear is similarly detailed, with LED taillamps that hide the various signal colours until they are actually illuminated. Truck-like rear doors open and then slide backward to give a good look of the Volvo’s cabin. Inside, there is no B-pillar and a host of concept vehicle trickery. It’s hard to tell what is just for the concept and what will actually make it into the production sedan, but so far it looks like a marked improvement on Volvo styling of old.
