Volvo has raised the curtain of its keenly awaited all-new V60 Cross Country ahead of its global debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Motor Show. Prices and specification will be announced and orders will be able to be placed during quarter 1 of 2015. Production will commence in the UK from May 2015 and deliveries are expected to start from late June.

“We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio. The successful combination of dynamic styling and rugged capability places the V60 Cross Country in a class of its own,” said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars. Although, the V60 was refreshed in 2013 with a new front and rear, along with a host of advanced and up-market features. But, the company in order to further extend the appeal of the V60, at the end of 2014, a brand new Drive-E engine from the Volvo’s own in-house designed and built engine platform, the 181hp, 2.0 litre, 4-cylinder, D4 diesel was placed under its hood. 

“With ground clearance increased by 65mm compared to the V60, the Cross Country’s sturdy construction offers unparalleled control on and off the beaten track, coupled with an enhanced sporty driving experience thanks to torque vectoring technology and corner traction control. The V60 Cross Country really is a getaway car – enabling an adventurous lifestyle in pure rugged form,” said Lex Kerssemakers. Offering new Cross Country 18” and 19” wheels  the V60 Cross Country comes with high profile tyres, adding comfort and off-road aesthetics, reducing road noise and providing added wheel protection.

With increased ground clearance, skid plates front and rear, side scuff plates and bumper extenders, the V60 Cross Country conveys an imposing, muscular presence that underlies its capable nature, while integrated tailpipes reflect its sporty dark side. To complement the capable exterior styling, sports seats in black leather with distinctive brown stitching, plus two new two-tone leather upholsteries will be offered. Volvo’s new, class-leading Drive-E four-cylinder diesel engines, which will be available in the V60 Cross Country, will be the base for the two Front-Wheel Drive variants available. The proven five-cylinder D4 powertrain will provide the power for the All-Wheel Drive variant.
