Volvo XC60

It is a concept car by Volvo, which is slick and stylish. The car's exteriors are similar to the Ford Iosis concepts and is different from what traditionally Volvo makes. The car's interiors are quite stylish and overall the car has very good looks. The car will have floating console-dash panel. Volvo XC60 is based on the platform of Land Rover LR2. The car is expected to be available for buyers in the year 2009.

The car was revealed in production form at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show. It went on sale in Europe in late 2008, and is scheduled to go on sale in North America in 2009 for the 2010 model year.

Volvo will produce the XC60 with both gasoline- and diesel-burning engines. In North America, only the gasoline-engine will be available. The XC60 shares technology with the Land Rover Freelander of 2007, using a modified version of the Volvo P24- platform. The Land Rover LR3 will set the stage for these corporate siblings to enter the market, as much of the engineering and tuning of this CUV was done by Volvo in Sweden, only offroad capabilities were done at Land Rover in England.
