Here’s a set of leaked pics starring the Volvo Concept Estate, which will make its official debut at the Geneva show next week. The Swedes released official teaser pics of the car in covers last week, giving us a glimpse of what to expect, but now we can properly drool.
Clearly related to the sleek Concept Coupe from Frankfurt 2013 and Concept XC Coupe from Detroit 2014, the Concept Estate is a shooting brake inspired by the Volvo 1800 ES of the 1970s. It’s the last of Volvo’s trilogy of concept cars penned by new design boss Thomas Ingenlath.
The Concept Estate and its siblings are effectively design previews of the next-generation of Volvos, starting with the new XC90 SUV due late this year. This dashboard layout, with a tablet-style touchscreen as centrepiece, cuts clutter and will feature in the next XC90 relatively unchanged, according to reports.
So Volvo, so sexy. Does it move you?
