Geneva Motor Show - Volvo Concept Estate Is Our Favourite Car

After spending many hours pounding around the displays at Geneva and studying the various cars I've decided that the Volvo Concept Estate is the best car at the show. Here's why.

The Volvo Concept Estate looks pretty good in photos but to the naked eye it looks stunning. It's the third in a trilogy of concepts that is set to shape the future look, design and technology of Volvo.

You can read more about the Concept Estate and the other two in the trilogy of concepts here. Aside from revealing how Volvo hopes its cars to look in the future it shows off the scaleable architecture, which is fancy language for the fact it now has its own platform from which it can build more and different models more quickly.

The concepts also show off the interior design direction of future Volvos which, judging from the Concept Estate is both unique and rather lovely, with simplicity and swathes of high-end materials.

But aside from the above it's a simple fact that the concepts shown so far, and the estate in particular, are great looking cars. The estate's sleek lines, shooting brake shape and well resolved form are both a nod to the past, in the form of the 1800 ES Shooting Brake, and a refreshing future that is resolutely Volvo.

Whilst most concepts, that aren't purely sports cars, are growing taller and are either SUVs or crossovers the Volvo Concept Estate is nice and low to the ground and stays true to the company's history, which in itself is a good thing
