In a bold new world where coupé can mean not just two doors but three, four or even five, Volvo has added a new concept to that list: the XC Coupe.

Offering a first glimpse of its big next-generation XC90 - and likely a little of the next XC60 - the new XC 'Coupe' concept builds on the look of the 'Coupe Concept' that debuted in Frankfurt last year.

The new concept may also represent the final look of the SUV teased in a Volvo presentation earlier this year.

Emphasising sharp angles and powerful proportions, the XC Coupe is described as "just one interpretation" of how its new Scalable Platform Architecture could manifest itself in Volvo's new range.

"Concept XC Coupe also shows how clever engineering makes it possible for us to reinforce our world-leading safety without compromising design, size or weight," Volvo design boss Thomas Ingenlath said.

"Thanks to extensive use of high-strength boron steel and structures with new, ingenious decoupling we can make SPA cars more compact and safer at the same time."

And while the XC Coupe looks like an enlarged and reimagined take on the philosophy behind the small C30 hatch, packing only a four-seat layout, we can expect the new XC90 to be larger and roomier.

“It goes without saying that a three-row, seven-seater will have a larger and fuller look than this four-seater. Volvo Concept XC is more of a Cross Country version of a sleek sports wagon," Ingenlath said.

Volvo will present one more new concept in the coming months, creating a triumvirate of future-previewing show cars. The identity of that third car remains unclear for now, however.

As for the production XC90, watch for that to appear before the year is out.
