Default 2018 Volvo XC40

I edited this as much as I know how:

ORIGINAL:


MY TWEAKS:


I don't know maybe I made it too conventional looking... just not a fan of the concept's DLO.

Big improvement. Instead of the cliché DLO, now it's easier on the eyes, the lines flow much more naturally in the Scandinavian sense. Plus now it has proper visibility for rear passengers.

Thanks! I've done a little more revising with the DLO just quickly to try and get it even closer to the XC90.

Looks a lot better. My only nitpick: move the rear door handle closer to the edge of the door, it's out of sync with the placement on the front door.

Also gave it more of Volvo's traditional shoulder line [which has been part of their design dna for decades].
