Volvo has unveiled the Cross Country version of the V60 wagon ahead of its debut at the 2014 LA Auto Show this month. Like the V70 Cross Country, the V60 Cross Country features a higher ride height and beefier body parts that make it more capable off-road and an alternative to a traditional SUV.
The V60 Cross Country rides 2.6-inches higher than the standard V60 and the addition of skid plates front and rear, side scuff plates and fender extenders give it a more muscular appearance and more capability off-road. The US and Canada will get the first V60 Cross Country cars, and they will launch with Volvo’s 2.5L five cylinder 250 hp engine with All-Wheel Drive coupled to an automatic transmission delivering an estimated combined fuel economy of 23 mpg.
Volvo’s new Drive-E four-cylinder diesel and gas engines will be available in the V60 Cross Country globally in early 2015 with front-wheel-drive.
