XC Coupe is a car for people with an active lifestyle

The new Volvo Concept XC Coupe is the second of Volvo’s three concept cars. Recently introduced at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, the XC Coupe’s design is inspired by modern sports equipment. Volvo says the XC Coupe is a car for people with an active lifestyle.

The new Volvo Concept XC Coupe is designed to demonstrate vital elements of the company’s new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA): the confident stance, the proportions and the most prominent design signatures.

The two-door, four-seater Volvo Concept XC Coupe is similar with the Volvo Concept Coupe. The difference between the two is the larger 21-inch wheels, the more accentuated wheel-arches, and the taller roofline.

According to Swedish carmaker the XC Coupe is equipped with high-tech sports gear. In their goal to have a balance between aesthetics and functionality, the design team has also given the XC Coupe a traditional SUV look such as side mouldings and skid plates.

The headlamps of the XC Coupe is equipped with Volvo’s new T-shaped DRL light guides. While the rear light of the XC Coupe presents a distinctive element in the new design direction of Volvo cars.

However, Volvo has declined to give out any information regarding the XC Coupe’s powertrain details.
