The Volvo V60 Cross Country is a compact crossover based on the V60 station wagon. This second-generation model arrived in 2019, but Volvo has been selling wagons dressed up as crossovers since the turn of the millennium, first with the V70 XC and then the XC70.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
For 2021, Volvo adds blind spot monitoring to the V60 Cross Country’s list of standard features.
Volvo offers the V60 Cross Country in a single T5 trim powered by a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive, and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
All V60 Cross Country models start with a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic A/C, heated/power-adjustable front seats with lumbar, a hands-free electric tailgate, fog lights, power-folding side mirrors, 18-inch wheels, a digital gauge display and smartphone integration.
On the safety front, the V6 Cross Country comes with lane keeping assist, oncoming lane mitigation, road sign information, blind spot monitor with steering assist, rear cross traffic alert with automatic braking, and rear park assist.
A climate package adds heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated front and rear wiper blades.
The premium option pack brings an auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, front park assist, navigation, an integrated garage door remote, and power-folding rear outboard headrests.
Finally, a lounge option adds front passenger seat memory, an extendable driver’s seat cushion, four-zone A/C, four-way front-seat lumbar, side scuff plates, and contrasting dashboard stitching.
You can also kit out your V60 Cross Country with a Polestar Engineered powertrain, and your choice of Harman Kardon and Bowers & Wilkins sound systems as standalone options.
Volvo’s fuel consumption estimates for the V6 Cross Country are 10.8/7.7 L/100 km (city/highway).
The V60 Cross Country’s closest competitors are the Audi A4 Allroad and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All Terrain wagon, both of which build on traditional station wagon models. You might also cross-shop the Cross Country with a variety of upscale subcompact and compact crossovers, like the Audi Q3, BMW X1, and Mercedes-Benz GLC, the Cadillac XT4, Infiniti QX50 and Acura RDX.
