Volvo are taking the wraps off their new XC60 crossover next month in Geneva. In the meantime, they have supplied us with the first official images and details.

Volvo are hoping to attract a legion of new buyers to the marque – those looking for exciting and individual styling combined with what Volvo believe is outstanding agility on and off-road.

The XC60 combines the tough, all-wheel drive masculinity of an SUV with fluid, coupe-style looks.

"Charged with more emotive form and more energy than any other Volvo. We're elevating our design DNA to an entirely new level by literally turning up the visual volume. If you say that you'd recognise a Volvo from a hundred metres away today, I dare say the XC60 radiates a clear Volvo presence from at least twice that distance," said Volvo Cars Design Director, Steve Mattin.

The XC60 will introduce Volvo’s ‘City Safety’ - a groundbreaking new technology that adds to the advanced systems already in use on Volvo models to make it the safest Volvo ever.

This unique feature takes on-road safety to new levels, including the ability to avoid or minimise the effects of low-speed impacts through automatic braking if the system senses the car is about to drive into the vehicle in front.

"We are the first manufacturer in the world to offer this type of feature as standard. The car is packed with our accumulated safety know-how and technology, both when it comes to preventing accidents and protecting all the occupants in a collision," says Volvo Cars President and CEO Fredrik Arp.

The first Volvo XC60s are scheduled to arrive in Australia at the beginning of 2009. Australian specification and pricing will be confirmed closer to the local launch.
