Volvo’s Concept You is long, low and wide, three of our favorite flavors when it comes to sedans. Especially of late, long-hooded four-doors with sweeping greenhouses have been hits on concept and production stages, and we’re fans. The Autoblog team is somewhat split on the nose, though, as some feel the toothy grille stretched across its width makes it look like a certain claymation character. Other AB staffers who don’t find the You’s face as objectionable are content to say it looks a bit inspired by Volvo’s long-running PV models of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. For its part, Volvo says the concept’s styling is inspired by Georg Jensen, a leading Danish design firm.
Otherwise, this is acres of hot blue Scandinavian design, and the You’s interior clearly raises the marque’s aspirations in the interior game in both craftsmanship and technology. If this is really what Volvo plans to do, then their recent talk of moving into the luxury ranks might not be misplaced. Could – and should – this be a precursor to the next S80?
