Volvo's Concept Estate could be headed for production as a slightly more sensible wagon.

Volvo's Concept Estate could be headed for production as a slightly more sensible wagon.

According to Autobild's sources, the concept previews the upcoming V70 successor. Little is known about the model but it could wear the V90 moniker when it is introduced in 2015.

That's not much to go on but the V90 would likely ride on the new Scalable Platform Architecture which features high-strength steel and aluminum components. We can also expect an assortment of Volvo Environmental Architecture (VEA) four-cylinder engines which are lighter, more powerful and more fuel efficient than the company's six-cylinder units.

The V90 could also share its technology with the 2015 XC90, so we can expect everything from a smart seat belt pre-tension system to Adaptive Cruise Control with Steer Assist.
