The Volvo prepare its new S60 Concept for Detroit’s Auto Show in next month. The Volvo S60 Concept demonstrates that new sedan will ditch the rather conservative duds it currently wears in favor of a new, much more aggressive visual ensemble. Profile views show off a coupe-ish roofline, while pointed headlights extend back onto the fenders and flank a reshaped, more detailed grille up front. The concept’s rear is similarly detailed, with LED taillamps that hide the various signal colors until they are actually illuminated.
Interesting features include a shifter that’s left horizontal when the car is cruising in automatic mode, but can be flipped up for a better grip when the driver wants to select gears manually. The S60 Concept has no B-pillar and features truck rear doors that open outward and slide back out of the way so that showgoers can better ogle the fancy interior. Don’t expect anything of the sort to make it to production.
