Volvo was launching the re-designed XC60, its best-selling SUV. While the new XC60 elevates the brand's luxury status, it also includes new technology not seen in previous models. As the first complete reimagining of one of Volvo's most-beloved and best-selling cars in a decade, the vehicle was in something of a marketing conundrum: it deserved to establish its own distinct exciting presence that could be even more engaging to drivers, while also carrying traces of an important legacy.
