Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice-President, Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Car Group, said: "We are creating a new product portfolio that blends a strong heritage with innovative technology and emotional design.

"Every core area is brought into a new dimension, also injecting more emotion into the rational properties that are the heart and soul of Volvo."

Concept Coupé is the first in a series of three concept cars that demonstrate the new design direction of Volvo Cars, paving the way for the introduction of the all-new XC90 next year.

"The Volvo Concept Coupé show what you can expect from our new architecture: the confident stance, the proportions and the most prominent design signatures. Even though the all-new XC90 is a different type of car, you will recognise the connection instantly," said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Car Group.

Initially, the new S60, V60 and XC60 will be available with three engines from the new two-litre, four-cylinder Drive-E Powertrain engine family: the 306hp petrol turbo T6; the 245hp T5 and the turbo diesel D4 with 181hp.

The T5 and the D4 are also available in the new Volvo V70, XC70 and S80.

To deliver the desired responsive, smooth and fuel-efficient drivability, the engines are teamed either with a new eight-speed automatic gearbox or an enhanced six-speed manual, tuned for improved fuel economy.
