The Volvo Concept Universe is an imposing an sleek looking luxury car concept which provides a sneak preview of what future top-of-the range Volvos will look like.

The Volvo Concept Universe's styling is defined by the clean uncluttered surfaces. It almost verges on the boring, but the long, low proportions and gently sloping roofline give it a sense of discreet class which should appeal to Volvo buyers.

The grille and headlights are about the only aspect of the design which could really do with a bit of tweaking. The fussiness of the details don't quite work with the rest of the styling, and the headlights are dwarfed by the size of the car.

The interior of the Volvo Concept Universe is a classy combination of textured dark wood, satin metal highlights and neatly defined upholstery.

The front and rear sections of the passenger compartment are clearly split into two zones. The rear has a considerably more relaxed atmosphere, while the front is slightly more business-like. In order to better define the two sections, the rear features lighter tones than the front.

A multifunction touch-screen panel in the dashboard is cleverly designed to move towards the driver's hand when they reach for it.

Peter Horbury, Vice President of Design at Volvo said of the car: "The Concept Universe is exceptionally refined, yet with all the simplistic assets that make Volvo champions of the uncomplicated. There is a growing appreciation for this ingenious blend of design and technology among modern luxury car buyers. This trend paves the way for our success. We are convinced that our special brand of luxury has a great future."

While the Volvo Concept Universe was debuted in China at the Shanghai Auto Show, Volvo intend to take the concept to international motor shows around the world to gather opinion on the design as part of their efforts to produce cars suitable for the global market.
