Volvo has completed its trio of concept models at the Geneva International Motor Show recently by unveiling the Concept Estate, to complement the Concept XC Coupe and Concept Coupe.
The trio of concepts previews Volvo’s future design language, but the Estate previews, for the first time, how the interior design of future Volvo models will look and function.
There is a high importance placed on ergonomics of the new interior design, with newly designed easy-to-use software, as well as a new touch-screen control panel, which controls everything from multimedia to window heaters. Not only is the interface all-encompassing, but the overall design is classy and upmarket.
Exterior design on the Estate follows Volvo’s new deign architecture, with sleek, smooth flowing lines and key elements such as the floating grill, new headlamps design and T-shaped Daytime Running Lamps. The sport-wagon design incorporates forward-moving bonnet lines and large, 21-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels.
Inside, luxurious finishes are the order of the day, with leather clad instrument panel, naturally aged wood inlays in the dash, a glass roof, crystal gear lever, and chequered black and white wool headliner and side panels of the front seats. Adding to the luxury are woven wool carpets in a deep orange tone.
The wagon has been made sexy again by Volvo’s new concept, and whilst a production guise model may bear an extra 2 doors, we hope Volvo retain a large majority of the styling elements from the Concept Estate.
