One of a trio of Volvo concept cars to use the company’s Scalable Product Architecture platform, the Concept XC Coupé is a full-size crossover vehicle
This three-door coupé has distinct SUV qualities; its assertive stance is enhanced by an appealingly chunky design and a noticeably higher ride height. The vehicle’s front fascia features the marque’s trademark radiator grille (adorned with the company emblem). This is flanked with slim T-shaped headlights, which are positioned above elegantly sculpted air intakes.
The XC Coupé features a taller-than-normal roofline, an expansive bonnet and a conspicuous beltline, and flared arches are positioned above 21-inch alloy wheels.
Grey rubber-like cladding strips are attached to the car’s grille, bumpers, side sills and elsewhere, strongly hinting at its sporty inclinations. .
A four-seat cabin ensures that
equal space is provided for each traveller. The car’s folding rear bench allows
for plenty of cargo flexibility – such as the stowage of sports equipment.
Tanned leather seats are complimented by orange seatbelts, and the same colour
is used throughout the cabin. A large tablet-like touchscreen takes pride of
place on the XC’s dashboard. From here the driver can control most in-cabin
features. This is supplemented by physical buttons that run underneath, as well
as steering wheel-mounted controls.
engines (comprising supercharged and turbocharged units) include one that
delivers 300bhp. In tandem with a hybrid system, this power output can
potentially be increased to 400bhp.
In common with all of Volvo’s vehicles, the Concept XC Coupé explores new ways of improving onboard safety. The car is constructed using generous levels of high-strength steel and aluminium, the latter ensuring that, while robust, the vehicle is never too heavy.
The XC90 was the first of Volvo’s vehicles to utilise Concept XC Coupe’s features, leading the way for the company’s new generation of cars. If you have any questions about the Concept XC Coupé or any of Volvo’s latest and upcoming vehicles, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
