Volvo has revealed their Cross Country version of the V60 mid-size estate. The rugged-looking model is the latest addition to the company's line-up of new Volvos that underpins the company's transformation in recent years.
Like its V60 sibling that was launched earlier this year, the V60 Cross Country personifies the Swedish family estate. Ground clearance for the V60 Cross Country is up to 75mm higher than the regular V60, thanks to the specially developed 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 stable mates, the new V60 Cross Country benefits from Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, safety technology and infotainment system. Speaking of which, the brand’s City Safety with Autobrake is fitted as standard and assists the driver in avoiding potential collisions. It is the only system on the market to help recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals.
The Pilot Assist system supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads. Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering assistance systems are standard. The optional Cross Traffic Alert with autobrake further enhances safety. These and other proven safety technologies make the new V60 Cross Country one of the safest cars on the road.
In the UK, the new V60 Cross Country will be available with a D4 AWD diesel engine. Mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants will follow at a later stage. Full pricing and specification details will be announced in due course.
