2011 Volvo Concept You Previews Future Luxury [Photo Gallery]
"Concept You gives a good indication of what you can expect from our nextlarge sedan. The blend of contemporary Scandinavian design, exquisite craftsmanship and intuitive technology will appeal to luxury car buyers all over the world," Said Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO of Volvo Car Corporation.
This car is all about previewing future luxury to come from the Swadish carmaker: "We will compete with the best with our special kind of luxury. Volvo's cars are intuitive and uncomplicated. Our customers don't have to give away driving pleasure to drive safely. They can be environmentally conscious and still indulge the pure joy of owning a luxury car."
A big interior innovation is the new audio system developed by Alpine, equipped with a "FreshAir" subwoofer that reduces the weight of the speaker from around 33 pounds (15 kg) down just three pounds (about 1.5 kg). The infotainment system is also amazing, mixing everything into the centrally mounted touchscreen.
So what do you guys think of the Scandinavian take on the global luxury market? We think it needs a new Front end, but the direction is good.
