Around since 2008, the current Volvo XC60 is due to be replaced soon, with a second generation already in the pipeline.
If the most recent info from Autocar is correct, then we should expect the 2018 Volvo XC60 sometime next year, with a similar footprint as the current iteration and an exterior design inspired by the larger XC90, highlighted by the signature headlights, with the ‘Thor’s hammer’ DRLs.
Its interior won’t be that different to the one of its larger sibling, either, with an infotainment system taking center stage of the dashboard, flanked by the horizontal air vents, along with a digital instrument cluster, which will replace the traditional dials, probably as an option.
Underneath the skin, the upcoming Volvo XC60 will benefit from the DNA of the XC90, S90 and V90, as it will be built on a smaller version of the flexible SPA platform. This will open up the possibility to numerous powertrains, including the brand’s 2.0-liter petrol and diesel units, likely joined by the T5 three-cylinder hybrid.
