2022/23 Volvo XC-90: new pic/illustration...


If this is based on anything, it would be quite a change of design direction for Volvo. Which, actually, wouldn't be a bad thing.
Since their current designs are all based on the fantastic Volvo Concept Estate from 2014. This looks closer to their new "Concept SUV". Kind of... With a bit of the XC-40 thrown in.

The XV-90 is Volvo's oldest model. Since it came out in 2015. So yes, a new one wouldn't arrive too early if it came sometime next year.
By that time, they will of course, offer an EV version. Which will eventually become the most popular model. And even end up replacing all gas powered models e few years later.

I am actually curious to see what Volvo is preparing next. Apparently, a smaller model than the XC-40 will be unveiled before. Which could be quite interesting too...

Going back to their boxy roots I see! I actually like this.

I don't have any kids but I'd love a v90. One of the best looking vehicles bar none you can buy IMO

A tribute to their classic boxy designs! Not a bad illustration, but I don't like it as much as their current design language. The cargo capacity would be great with a tall square wagon shape like this, though! I can see some people unfavorably comparing this illustration to the last Scion xB.

I don't believe for a minute that this is any indication of where Volvo is heading.

Build an updated retro look 240 wagon and I'll write a blank cheque.
