Car Tech Video: Detroit Auto Show 2007: Volvo XC60 concept

0:57 /

How sleek can a crossover get? This Volvo vision seeks to answer that question. Get a first look in this video from the 2007 Detroit Auto Show.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Volvo set into motion some new design language for that company with this, the XC60 concept. The new grill and headlight design you see will actually take their place on production and Volvo cars long before this concept becomes real. And inside an iPod-ish look to the center stack, look for something very much like this in showrooms when this car actually hits. This transparent roof panel has become one of the hot trends lately, a lot of carmakers are doing it today, more will do it tomorrow and outback is a unique tailgate you can open without having to wrestle the entire hatch open, makes for easier loading smaller stuff. Another nice detail are the control knobs for the heater and the AC when the car is turned off they retract back into the console, of course by then there's nobody left in the car to appreciate that little touch. ^M00:00:53 [ Music ]
