Expected to debut at 2017 NAIAS in Detroit.
The first generation Volvo XC60 was introduced in 2008 and had a cosmetic redo in 2013. Today, the second generation model is under development and due for its market launch next year. In the latest, the 2017 Volvo XC60’s interior has been spied for the first time.
While the original Volvo XC60 debuted the company’s then new design language, the next-gen Volvo XC60 will embody the design language introduced on the Volvo XC90 in 2014. On the outside, the iconic “Thor’s Hammer” LED headlights, the waterfall grille housing the new Volvo Iron Mark, and all other family design properties will be seen on the all-new XC60.
The second-gen Volvo XC60’s interior seems to have been lifted straight off the Volvo XC90. The instrument panel, dashboard, centre console and centre tunnel all appear strikingly similar, except the air blade HVAC vents borrowed from the S90 and V90.
The second generation Volvo XC60 will be underpinned by the SPA (Scalable Product Architecture) platform. It will be offered with 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol, 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid powertrain. An 8-speed automatic transmission could be standard, while the all-wheel drive system, only in the high-end models.
