The Volvo Concept XC Coupe (pictured) will debut at Detroit next month

Volvo are heading to the Detroit Auto Show next month with the second of three concepts planned utilising their new scalable platform architecture which will underpin almost all future models – the Volvo Concept XC Coupe. The first of the three new concepts from Volvo came at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in September as the Volvo Concept Coupe – a new take on Volvo’s iconic P1800 – but this time we get a concept that points firmly at the new Volvo XC90, due in a year’s time as a 2015 model.

We’ve already got some idea of what Volvo’s designers think the new XC90 should look like, but the styling cues on the Concept Coupe – and the teaser photos of the Concept XC Coupe (above) – give us a much clearer view of what Volvo are planning for one of their most successful cars.

A new XC90 is long overdue, but despite the current XC90 being more than a decade old it’s still selling and still relevant, a testimony to how right Volvo got the XC90 when it arrived in 2002.

If Volvo can make the new XC90 as innovative and appealing as the current XC90 was when it launched, they’ll be on to a winner.

We’ll find out more in a few weeks.
