We’ve seen the Swedish company rework its entire upper series of models – the 60 series is still underway with only the XC60 presented so far – and with a complete restart for the 90 series.
Volvo has been keeping itself busy rebuilding its global stance since it became a subsidiary of the Chinese automaker Geely – and the XC90 alongside the S / V90 / Cross Country seem like massive successes for the usually niched marque. The second generation XC60 crossover became their star at the Geneva Motor Show – and has been joined by a series of videos for the public depicting its latest advancements in terms of tech goodies and the usual safety perks. Interestingly enough, in some of the videos the company seems to have sneaked in an Easter Egg, as an unnamed and unknown compact sedan plays a secondary role. We also don’t think it’s a simple CGI – and our money is on the car depicting the new generation S40.
By the way, the model is making a return after a hiatus of a few years – it was previously based on the Ford Focus and production ended back in 2012. The film’s mysterious sedan meanwhile uses the current design identity of the brand – including the well-known Thor’s hammer-shaped LED DRLs integrated into the headlamps. The taillights seem to be inspired by the ongoing S60, but wrapped in a smaller shape. Just like the previewing 40.2 concept, this sedan is also entering the fastback movement.
