Volvo has revealed the first details and images of the Concept XC Coupe, a new show car for the Detroit Motor Show in January 2014.

The second of what will be three concepts based on Volvo’s new ‘Scalable Product Architecture’ (SPA), the Concept XC Coupe follows on from the Volvo Concept Coupe that debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

As its name suggests, the Concept XC Coupe represents a possible next chapter in the Volvo Cross Country and XC product portfolio – in other words, the firm’s more off-road orientated models.

This means it could well preview the forthcoming second-generation Volvo XC90, which the company has already confirmed will be the first production vehicle to use the new SPA platform. Or it could just be a new Volvo estate on stilts. SPA will underpin all of Volvo’s medium and large new cars for the foreseeable future. Beyond this, all Volvo is currently prepared to say about the Concept XC Coupe is that it will act as a showcase for all its latest safety technology while demonstrating a ‘contemporary Scandinavian active lifestyle’.

Full details of the new Volvo Concept XC Coupe are expected on 8 January 2014, five days before it makes its debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) on 13 January 2014.
