Next Volvo V70 renderings
Volvo is preparing the next generation V70 and V50, and according to AutoCar, they could be the first in a new generation of wagons to scrap the conventional long roof and low driving position for a more SUV-like higher roofline and driving position.
“Within Volvo we are re-examining the estate (wagon) car and many people are currently scratching their heads,” a senior Volvo manager told Autocar at the recent unveiling of the XC60. “We’d be interested in your opinions.”
Volvo will also replace the S60 in 2010 and the XC90 will get a major makeover (including a possible diesel hybrid drivetrain) in 2010 with a replacement coming in 2012.
