The new Volvo V90 has apparently been captured undisguised ahead of its anticipated public unveiling at the Geneva motor show in March.
The big estate was spied in an unofficial photograph published by the Swedish magazine Teknikens Varld. The image indicates that new estate's styling draws heavily on that of the Volvo Concept Estate revealed at the 2014 Geneva motor show, particularly with the design of its distinctive tail-lights. The front end closely resembles the Volvo S90 saloon on which it’s based.
The Volvo V90 will be built on the Swedish manufacturer's SPA platform and the same choice of powerplants as the XC90 are anticipated, including the 394bhp T8 ‘Twin Engine’ plug-in hybrid and the D4 and D5 diesel engines. The car in Teknikens Varld's image carries T8 badging on the rear.
An official launch date is unconfirmed, but the V90 is expected to make its public debut at the Geneva motor show in March before going on sale in the UK in the second half of this year. The Volvo S90 is due to make its first official appearance at the Detroit motor show later this month.
A sporty Volvo V90 Polestar, tuned by the company's competition arm, is also likely later in the car's life cycle. It's not the first time the Volvo V90 has leaked out. Late last year, pictures of a 1:43 scale model appeared to show the estate.
A double sunroof and roof rails can be seen on the model of the estate, which could spawn an off-road-focused V90 Cross Country edition, and although there are no pictures of the interior, it’s expected to mirror the S90's plush appointments.
