2015 Volvo S60 Cross Country revealed
The 2015 Volvo S60 Cross Country has been revealed ahead of its global debut at the Detroit Motor Show later this month.
COPPING A 2.5 inch lift over the garden variety S60, the 2015 S60 Cross Country gets the same all-wheel drive system as the V60 Cross Country. The S60 Cross Country will also be available as a front-driver in some markets, but it’s unlikely Volvo Australia would add this one to their list.
“We want to further explore the market with our Cross Country brand. We did this back in 1997 with the V70 Cross Country and it led to the birth of a whole new segment. We have included all the capability-driven benefits of the Cross Country brand in this new model, while offering a completely unique expression of adventure and all-road readiness in a distinctly sporty and stylish package,” says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.
“The S60 Cross Country is the sole contender in the crossover saloon segment. We have identified a clear niche in the market for a more capable saloon with rugged styling cues and a higher stance. The S60 Cross Country will appeal to people that are searching for an exciting and capable saloon, whilst enjoying the clear benefits that a crossover offers,” says Alain Visser, Senior Vice President Sales, Marketing and Customer Service.
Deliveries will begin from July 2015, but there’s no word on when or if the S60 Cross Country will make it Down Under. Indeed, the front-drive S60 Cross Country will launch first with a diesel-powered all-wheel drive version following. More details will be revealed after the reveal at the Detroit Motor Show.
