Volvo V60 Cross Country announced

Rugged version of V60 estate set to go on sale early next year

Volvo has released details of the V60 Cross Country estate, a more rugged version of the standard V60 that will be offered with four-wheel drive.

A number of manufacturers are currently producing similar ‘off-road estate’ cars, including the Audi A4 Allroad and the Skoda Octavia Scout. The new Cross Country model signals Volvo’s intent to reclaim some of the market share it first captured when the V70 Cross Country estate launched back in 1997.

The V60 Cross Country will ride 65mm higher than the normal version and will feature plastic skirts and wheel arch cladding to protect the bodywork from stones, rocks and other debris that may get thrown up when the car is used off-road.

The car will also have scuff plates and bumper extenders, as well as front and rear skid plates to boost its off-road credentials. New 18-inch or 19-inch alloy wheels will be available to buyers too.

Black leather sports seats with brown stitching will be specific to the Cross Country version of the V60 but it’s possible two-tone leather options may also be offered when the order book opens.

Under the bonnet, diesel engines will be the only option, with Volvo set to offer three different power outputs. The V60 Cross Country will come with 161bhp, 181bhp or 187bhp, with the most powerful of the three the one to be offered with four-wheel drive.

Volvo has not announced prices for the new car as yet but it’s likely to be available to order in early 2015, with first deliveries expected in June next year.

Be sure to check back for prices and further details of the new model, as we will update this page as soon as more information is released.
