A brand new crossover that is still under the development and will be presented by popular Swedish automaker is 2018 Volvo XC60. Soon, the automaker will present it in form of concept. It is a fresh car that is designed from Volvo and it seems that they wouldn’t release it with drastic change. Some styling updates and solutions are added and the engine range is still the same as before. Because no major changes to offer, we think that the price wouldn’t be too high from the current.
Although this car is still fresh and doesn’t need much change, it is important for Volvo to beware about their market position. Once they don’t give any innovations outside, it might be less interesting to anticipate. Our reliable sources mentioned that they will carry over the current side skirts and the headlight will be the Thor’s Hammer styling. The bumper is gladly revisited and the rear end has wave cut light. In short, this SUV has more aggressive look. For the grille, it comes larger than before to complete the modification on its exterior. We glad that some minor changes are possible to make 2018 Volvo XC60 a bit different from before.
Based on current reports, the automaker will highlight the car with the safety features. This prior can take the automaker to be on the top automakers especially for its class. In addition, 2018 Volvo XC60 comes with increased length which gives more capacity for its cargo room. Passengers can sit comfortably with the sufficient space for their head and legs and this SUV has five-seat layout that is quite easy to access. What is more is that Volvo will revisit the dashboard for a simpler operation than before. We would be happy if rumors come true that the automaker will also upgrade the infotainment system, audio system and higher quality seats comfort.
Still based on rumors, the automaker might keep the current Drive-E engines. The four-cylinder units will be the certain options and this new crossover is expected to come with improved efficiency. Another possible engine to use is 2.0 liter and inline-four engine for 2018 Volvo XC60 that is capable to offer 300 hp. There is also the possibility for 2.5 liter Drive-E engine with less output to offer. V6 engine can be used for this crossover with the displacement of 3.0 liter for 320 hp.
