Volvo V60 goes Cross Country, gains PHEV models

The rugged V60 Cross Country is the latest addition to the company’s line-up. Like its V60 sibling that was launched earlier this year and which Fleet Europe tested in Spain, it personifies the versatile Swedish family estate. To that profile, it adds the capability on and off the beaten track that has defined Volvo’s Cross Country range since its introduction in 1997.

Ground clearance for the V60 Cross Country is up to 75mm higher than the regular V60. All-wheel-drive is standard, as are Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Corner Traction Control and a special Off-Road driving mode.

The new V60 Cross Country is also available through Volvo Cars’ premium subscription service Care by Volvo, which offers car access via a monthly flat-fee subscription rather than ownership.

First available will be the T5 AWD petrol powertrain and the D4 AWD diesel engine. Mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants (T6 and T8) will follow at a later stage.
