Model Overview: 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country

Volvo's lineup continues to expand with the introduction of the new V60 Cross Country. This sporty and dynamic luxury wagon, based on Volvo's new-for-2015 V60, is the next generation of Volvo's Cross Country line offering all-road, all-weather driving capability, distinctive design and sophisticated safety and connectivity features.

As a leader in the premium wagon segment, Volvo blazed a new trail when it introduced the first Volvo V70 Cross Country nearly 20 years ago. Combining the traditional virtues of comfort, safety and utility plus sporty style, increased ground clearance and charisma, the V70 was ahead of its time. The new V60 Cross Country continues this legacy while embarking on a bold new road.

Volvo's designers artfully crafted the next generation Cross Country by applying signature design cues to the solid foundation of the V60 wagon. These elements combine to give the new V60 Cross Country a look that captures the hearts of drivers longing to "go anywhere" while attracting a new generation of customers to the Volvo family.

Up front, the V60 Cross Country receives a new honeycomb grille and lower skid plate. The side is accented with new scuff plates, and black fender extensions that house exclusive 18-inch NESO Cross Country alloy wheels. Glossy black window trim and outside mirror covers add to the sporty elegance. At the rear, a lower skid plate provides the finishing touch while rear park assist is standard.

To endow the new V60 Cross Country with the ability to traverse roads off the beaten track, Volvo's engineers increased its ground clearance by 2.6 inches for total ground clearance of 7.9 inches.

Offered in two well-equipped models, the V60 T5 AWD Cross Country and V60 T5 AWD Cross Country Platinum are powered by Volvo's signature 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 250 horsepower @ 5,400 rpm and 266 lb.-ft. of torque @ 1,800-4,200 rpm. This engine is mated to an efficient six-speed "Geartronic" driver adaptive automatic transmission with Sport Mode.

Volvo's electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction is standard providing the best possible grip in all situations - on wet, slippery or completely dry roads. The advanced Haldex® AWD system delivers power to the wheels with the best grip. When any tire loses traction, power is reduced to that wheel and instantly transferred to the more sure-footed wheels.
