Volvo V60 Cross Country brings offroad capabilities
Volvo is launching a new V60 Cross Country following the arrival of the standard estate model this summer.
Revealed as the carmaker also announces a new V60 R-Design trim and bringing a rival to the Audi A4 Allroad, the V60 Cross Country features a bespoke chassis and suspension alongside standard all-wheel drive. It also builds on its off-road credentials with standard Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Corner Traction Control and a special Off-Road driving mode.
As with all Volvo Cross Country models, it also features a higher seating position and increased ground clearance – up 75mm on the standard model – as well as rugged lower body cladding.
Standard features also include the City Safety with Autobrake driver assistance tech from the conventional V60, plus Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering assistance systems.
One engine will be offered from the outset – the D4 diesel engine – with mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants to follow at a later stage.
The V60 Cross Country goes on sale next month, with first UK deliveries in Q1 2019.
