2016 Volvo V60 Cross Country revealed [video]
Volvo has released images of its new all-wheel drive V60 Cross Country, due for release in 2015.
VOLVO WILL show its V60 Cross Country at the LA Motor Show later this month, but has released images, some details and a video ahead of the reveal. The third Cross Country model in the Volvo armoury, the V60 Cross Country will go on-sale in Europe in May 2015 – there’s no word on when it will reach Australia.
In Europe, the V60 Cross Country will be available with three diesel engines, two four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines and a five-cylinder turbo-diesel, it will also be available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
While Subaru might argue otherwise, Volvo claims it was the first maker to offer a premium all-road wagon with its V70 Cross Country back in 1997. The new V60 Cross Country claims to offer both a sporty driving experience and the ability to “explore new horizons”.
“With ground clearance increased by 65mm compared to the V60, the Cross Country’s sturdy construction offers unparalleled control on and off the beaten track, coupled with an enhanced sporty driving experience thanks to torque vectoring technology and corner traction control. The V60 Cross Country really is a getaway car – enabling an adventurous lifestyle in pure rugged form,” said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.
