Volvo introduces V60 Cross Country
Volvo goes off the beaten path with new V60 Cross Country.
Volvo Cars has revealed the new Cross Country version of its V60.
Like its V60 sibling that was launched earlier this year on the driveway of a Stockholm villa, the V60 Cross Country personifies the versatile Swedish family crossover utility vehicle.
To that profile, it adds the capability on and off the beaten track that has defined Volvo’s Cross Country range since its introduction in 1997, taking the V60 from the suburb to the skogen (Swedish for forest).
Ground clearance for the V60 Cross Country is up to 75 mm higher than the regular V60, thanks to the specially developed Cross Country chassis and suspension that enhance the car’s off-road capability.
All-wheel-drive is standard on the new V60 Cross Country, as are Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Corner Traction Control and a special Off-Road driving mode.
The new V60 Cross Country will be available with a T5 AWD propulsion system.
A mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants will follow at a later stage.
