2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country Makes First Appearance
Available through subscription service
The updated Cross Country receives a special chassis and suspension to enhance its performance off the beaten path. Because of these updates, it features 2.95 inches of additional ground clearance over the standard V60. An off-road driving mode, as well as standard all-wheel drive and corner traction control, further aid the wagon.
Automatic braking comes standard, and it recognizes pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals to avoid collisions. Other features include a tablet-style touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, cross traffic alert, and Pilot Assist, which helps drivers steer, accelerate, and brake under certain conditions.
The V60 Cross Country will offer a T5 turbo-four engine with all-wheel drive. Later on, mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants will arrive. Drivers can choose to get their hands on the V60 Cross Country from Volvo's vehicle subscription service, which charges a flat fee per month.
The 2019 Volvo V60 will hit dealerships here in the U.S. in early 2019. Volvo hasn't set a timeline for rolling out the Cross Country version in the U.S., but we'll probably learn more details later this year.
