Volvo XC60

This is the first grainy look of the 2010 Volvo XC60

We’ve seen the XC60 Concept last year, but this is definitely different. It appears to be an early prototype of the production version and was caught in Northern Sweden undergoing cold-climate testing on a frozen lake. Running under the codename of Y278, the new XC60 is expected to hit the showroom floor in early 2009 as a 2010 model.

The XC60 is expected to share the platform with the Land Rover Freelander, and utilize the same DOHC 3.2-litre in-line six-cylinder.

Assuming the engine's Volvo tune will match Land Rover's application, that will mean 230 horsepower at 6,300 rpm. The XC60 is expected to be offered in front- and all-wheel-drive.
