Hot on the heels of the new Volvo V60 R-Design comes the announcement that the premium mid-sized estate range will be expanded even further with the addition of a rugged Cross Country version.

The all-wheel drive Volvo V60 Cross Country boasts a specially-developed chassis and suspension, and an increased ride height of 75mm. Standard technology on the Cross Country model will include Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Corner Traction Control and a special Off-Road driving mode. City Safety with Autobrake is also fitted as standard to help avoid potential collisions, and is even capable of recognising pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals. Pilot Assist system supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 80mph, and other standard steering assist technology includes Run-off Road Mitigation, and Oncoming Lane Mitigation. Cross Traffic Alert with autobrake can be added as an option.

The V60 Cross Country also benefits from Volvo’s Sensus Connect infotainment system, with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and 4G.  Its tablet-style touchscreen control combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment apps.

UK versions of the new Volvo V60 Cross Country will be powered by the D4 AWD diesel engine at launch, with mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid options to follow later. Volvo will confirm full pricing and specification details closer to launch.
