Volvo is continuing its onslaught of new product following the recent reveal of its popular XC90 with the new V60 Cross Country.
In a move to re-popularize the wagon, Volvo brought the V60 to our shores last year. The V60 Cross Country adds a “sporty driving feel” matched with better off road capability thanks to a raised ride height and all-wheel drive.
“We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio. The successful combination of dynamic styling and rugged capability places the V60 Cross Country in a class of its own,” said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.
The V60 Cross Country will feature Volvo’s five cylinder 250 horsepower engine with All-Wheel Drive coupled to an automatic transmission delivering combined fuel consumption of 10.2 litres per 100 kilometres.
With 18” wheels, the V60 Cross Country comes with high profile tires, which promises to help negotiate “climbing curbs” (do people purposely do that?) and rocky roads.
Pricing has yet to be released. Pics below.
