The new Volvo V60 Cross Country will go sale next May with the first deliveries expected late June 2015.
The V60 Cross Country has been introduced to compete with the likes of the Audi A4 allroad, Skoda Octavia Scout and Volkswagen Passat Alltrack. Unlike the V40 Cross Country which is only available with front wheel drive the V60 edition will have the option of all-wheel-drive.
The V60 Cross Country increased ground clearance of 65mm over the standard V60, it also gains some rugged styling cues in the form of front and rear skid plates, side scuff plates and bumper extenders. There will be a choice of 18” or 19” alloy wheels with high profile tyres to aid country pursuits.
There will be the choice of three engines, all diesel – the 161bhp 2.0 D3 and 181bhp D4 which are front-wheel drive only, and an 187bhp five-cylinder D4 unit which comes with all-wheel-drive.
Volvo has yet to announce prices or specifications for V60 Cross Country.Published 5 November 2014
