Volvo has released images and details on the estate version of the S60, the V60, after a pic of the car was leaked to a Swedish magazine.
The firm's tagline for the new wagon is "as sporty as the all-new S60"; the firm is attempting to call the car a coupé instead of an estate - but it's still unmistakably a more practical variant of the S60.
A strong crease along the flanks and a slim window beyond the C-pillar do give the car a more athletic stance, however.
Orjan Sterner, head of exterior design for the V60, said "From a design viewpoint the focus was on making the car as close to a coupe as possible, while retaining that handy extra space at the rear.
"Our sports wagon does not aim to compete with the traditional estate car," he added. "For the customer who wants a lot of load space there is our V70."
The car has a 40/20/40-split rear seat and a fold-flat front passenger seat, and can offer a totally flat boot floor. With the seats up, 430 litres are on offer; Volvo has yet to reveal a maximum capacity, however.
The V60's engine line-up will include the revisions to its range-wide motors announced in May. There will be five petrol engines, from 1.6 litres up to the 3.0-litre straight six, and three diesel options, 2.4 and 2.0 five-pots and a 1.6-litre four-cylinder unit.
Safety kit will include Pedestrian Detection, which can automatically brake at speeds of up to 22mph to avoid a collision with a pedestrian if the driver does not react in time and City Safety, which performs the same task with other vehicles.
The V60 will make its public debut at the Paris motor show on 30 September, and sales will start soon after.
