FRANKFURT, Germany — The Volvo Concept You, said to preview Volvo's next large sedan, debuted on Tuesday at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

The Concept You is more "daring" than the Volvo Concept Universe shown at the 2011 Shanghai Auto Show, said the automaker.

"Concept You gives a good indication of what you can expect from our next large sedan," said Stefan Jacoby, president and CEO of Volvo Car Corp.

The Concept You features a fastback profile, 21-inch polished aluminum wheels and such high-tech features as a touchscreen integrated into the center console and an in-car file transfer system.

Chinese-owned Volvo is also determined to tap into the brand's Scandinavian roots with the new concept. It gets a wooden floor, a feature seen in Scandinavian homes, according to a statement from Volvo.

Peter Horbury, Volvo's vice president of design, also said that Concept You taps into a "more classic Volvo look" than Concept Universe.

Edmunds.com says: Volvo still appears to be casting about for just the right look under its new Chinese masters.
