Now comes the breadwinner: the smaller XC60 crossover, which makes its world debut today at the Geneva International Motor Show.

This is the second-generation Volvo XC60 2018, and it abandons the EUCD platform from the days when Ford owned Volvo. When Ford sold Volvo in 2008, the Swedish automaker knew it had to create its own platform to make future cars. It came up with the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which made its debut with the XC90 SUV, followed by the S90 sedan and V90 and V90 Cross Country wagons.

Now it underpins a fifth vehicle, the Volvo XC60 2018. It goes on sale in the U.S. in the fall. Pricing has not been disclosed.

The XC60 does not undergo as dramatic of a redo as the larger XC90, but the smaller crossover is a key product. The current model has stood the test of time; it was Volvo’s best-selling vehicle in the U.S. in February despite its age.

The all-new 2018 XC60 is not a scaled-down XC90. “We were quite sure we wanted a different look and not babushka design,” Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo’s senior vice president of design, says, referring to the Russian matryoshka nesting dolls of decreasing size. An internal design contest netted eight designs that led to the model unveiled today. Ingenlath says it was the smoothest design process of his career, even with the pressure of replacing Volvo’s volume vehicle. “Smooth childhood, nice parents,” he says with a smile in describing the latest iteration of SPA.

Although the larger XC90 is more upright with an aristocratic presence, the XC60 has a more raked windshield and lower front, including a hood that drops down at the nose to denote a sportier vehicle. It has nice, clean lines and a side profile with a slimming character line that is particularly attractive.

Compared to its predecessor, the Volvo XC60 2018 is longer, lower, and wider. The wheelbase grows 3.6 inches to 112.8 inches, and overall length is only 2.4 inches longer at 184.6 inches. Width increases less than 0.5 inch to 74.9 inches, and the vehicle is also 0.5 inch lower at a height of 65.3 inches. It is bigger but weighs roughly the same with greater use of lightweight steel.
