Volvo XC60

The first official images of Volvo's XC60, which is due to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, has leaked on the internet.

A concept version made its appearance at the Detroit Motor Show. In production guise the XC60 will rival small premium SUVs such as the BMW X3, Land Rover Freelander and the upcoming Mercedes-Benz GLK. Expect the XC60 to arrive in South Africa only in 2009.

Little detail is yet available about the XC60 but with the launch of the concept version Volvo said that the production model will get its new City Safe active safety system that helps the driver avoid or minimize damage from low-speed rear-impact accidents.

More details of the XC60 will follow soon.
