What's cool: Volvo's take on the latest European styling trend -- the 4-door coupe -- is a sexy one. The swoopy sedan has muscular fenders and an in-your-face grille with an oversized Volvo badge that looks as if it were borrowed from a Volvo truck. The rear doors are hinged at the rear and swing back, clear of the body, to create a wide opening to the interior.
Will it be built? Yes; it goes on sale in mid- 2010.
