Volvo has unveiled the latest addition to the company’s line-up in the form of the V60 Cross Country.
The V60 Cross Country personifies the versatile Swedish family estate. With capability on and off the beaten track that has defined Volvo’s Cross Country range since its introduction in 1997, the V60 Cross Country will take you from the suburb to the skogen (Swedish for forest).
“With the new V60 Cross Country, we take our Swedish family estate from one natural habitat to another,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive of Volvo Cars. “We invented the Cross Country segment over 20 years ago, and with this car we reinforce our long-standing pedigree in safe, capable and versatile family cars.”
Ground clearance for the V60 Cross Country is up to 75mm 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, as are Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Corner Traction Control and a special Off-Road driving mode.
Like its 60 series and 90 series stablemates, the new V60 Cross Country benefits from Volvo Cars’ award-winning Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, safety technology and infotainment system. It is also available through Care by Volvo, Volvo Cars’ premium service that offers car access rather than ownership via a fixed monthly amount.
“The V60 Cross Country is every bit as refined as the other 60 and 90 series cars based on our SPA platform,” said Henrik Green, Senior Vice President of Research and Development at Volvo Cars. “The added versatility makes it at home in town and country, thanks to a higher seating position, increased ground clearance and dynamic all-wheel-drive capabilities.”
