2018 Volvo XC40

 Looks like the all new XC40 Compact SUV from Volvo is ready to go.

It also looks like it will be very close to the concept we saw last year.
Which is a good thing. Since it was a pretty original design, compared to other small SUVs around.

HERE are more pictures of it testing in the snow.

 These are just illustrations. From last year's concept. And they do look great.

But... I still think they will keep the "hidden" rear door handle the concept had.
I think Volvo is fooling everyone by putting fake ones on the prototypes driving around.
Like on this one.

The front and rear door handles don't seem to align properly.
I think the rear door handles are part of the rear doors. Like on the concepts.
And others, like the Nissan Juke.

Here is the concept. With the hidden rear door handles. On top of the door. Close to the roof.

The concept HAS regular rear door handles. Where did you see hidden ones, Burlapp?

Odd looking. Prefer the 60

Original design? It looks like every other small SUV on the market.

It does not. Look again. You are confusing the illustration with the concept. Vince may not know grammar, but he knows his cars.

On the concept photo, the last pic in that posting. Lol. Look close and you will see them.

Good luck in a market that everyone and their brother is already in...

FFEMT6, that is the fuel-filler door behind the rear doors. Loving the illustrations.. why would you put rear door handles on top of the door, close to the roof, right where little kids (for which the rear seat is probably only suitable) can't reach it? Not very clever Swedish design.
