i personally really like the overall shape of the car. it's a nice relationship between bulging rear and the sort of pointed snout.

it really takes the cues from a car and translates them well into an SUV body style, where so many other cars have failed. (i'm thinking porsche cayenne)

I'd say it's a success, style wise.

but volvo is definitely resting on it's laurels with the s60 for sure.

it got so much praise for it's beauty when it came out, they probably think they shouldn't mess with it.

either that or ford is just lazy in getting them funding to develop cars rather than SUVs

thats the chasis, i'm talking about the outer body :P

S60 has has as many changes as the 850s did between the S70s. Look at porsche, same look for decades, same with almost any exotic, or true luxury car. If its not dated why change it.

I like it. Not for me, but then again I am a coupe/sedan person anyways. Front badge is a little too big, but that could've (hopefully) been for marketing at the event.
