The Volvo V60 Cross Country is one of the auto industry's purest interpretations of the crossover SUV concept. It takes the V60 station wagon, raises the suspension and adds more robust-looking body panels to give it a more rugged appearance. The Cross Country was new in 2019, along with the standard V60 wagon. Volvo has made no major changes to the V60 Cross Country for 2020.
Volvo offers the V60 Cross Country in a single trim, powered by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine, an eight-speed transmission, and AWD.
The V60 Cross Country's standard safety features include forward collision detection and mitigation, lane keeping assist, road sign information, rain-sensing wipers, and tire pressure monitoring.
Among the car's tech features are an 8.0-inch gauge cluster display, rear park assist, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and satellite radio.
All V60 Cross Country models also come with dual-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, heated/power-adjustable front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a power tailgate.
The V60 Cross Country is dressed up with bright roof rails, high-gloss exterior trim, dual tailpipes, LED headlights, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
Buyers can add 19- and 20-inch wheels and tires and leather upholstery as stand-alone options.
There are also two packages: Premier adds power-folding/auto-dimming side mirrors, four-zone climate control, navigation, heated rear seats, heated wiper blades, blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alert, a 12.3-inch gauge cluster display, passive keyless entry, and a heated steering wheel.
A Premier Plus group goes further with headlight washers, an integrated garage door opener, 360-degree exterior camera views, the pilot assist driver assistance system with adaptive cruise control and front/rear park assist, a compass, drive mode selector, adaptive headlights, and fog lights.
Volvo's fuel consumption estimates are 10.8/7.7 L/100 km (city/highway).
The V60 Cross Country has few direct competitors. Size- and price-wise it slots between subcompact crossovers (Cadillac XT4, BMW X1/X2, Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Lexus UX, and Volvo's own XC40) and compact models like the Cadillac XT5, BMW X3, Audi Q5, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Acura RDX, Lexus NX, and the Volvo XC60.
