Volvo presents its off-road wagon: the new 2018 V60 Cross Country.

Earlier this year, Volvo unveiled its new V60. It is now the turn of the 2018 V60 Cross Country to see the public.

 

Visually, it can be easily distinguished from the conventional V60. Indeed, it is 75 mm taller ride height compared to the normal V60. This ride height will help the car to go off the beaten track thanks to a specially improved chassis.

 

Not surprisingly, it is offered as standard with the all-wheel-drive. Other driving assistance features include the Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Corner Traction Control as well as a special Off-Road driving mode.

 

The car also comes with the City Safety with Autobrake and Pilot Assist. In the city, this automatic braking technology makes it possible, among other things, to avoid a collision with another car of the road while the Pilot Assist technology keeps the car at the speed that you choose. the Pilot Assist sometimes will slightly steer the car to help you stay in your lane and can run smoothly on the well-made road with a speed up to 130km/h.

 

Like other Volvo Series 60 and 90 vehicles, the V60 Cross Country is built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform.

 

“The V60 Cross Country is every bit as refined as the other 60 and 90 Series cars based on our SPA platform. The added versatility makes it at home in town and country, thanks to a higher seating position, increased ground clearance and dynamic all-wheel-drive capabilities”

 

said Henrik Green, senior vice president of research and development at Volvo Cars.


Volvo announces that this new family can be equipped with one of two engines: T5 gasoline and D4 diesel. The first is a T5 2.0 turbocharged four-cylinder petrol that is capable of outputting 247 hp (250 PS) and 350 Nm, and the second is a D4 2.0 liter twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel the develops 188 hp (190 PS) and 400 Nm. Both engines will be offered for European buyers, while U.S customer has only the T5 that tuned by the manufacturer to 250 hp and 350 Nm.

 

Connect these power outputs to the road is an Aisin-sourced AW TG-81 SC eight-speed automatic transmission. As aforementioned, the car comes standard with all-wheel drive.

 

There are also a mild hybrid and a plug-in hybrid later, according to Volvo.

 

“With the new V60 Cross Country, we take our Swedish family estate from one natural habitat to another. We invented the Cross Country segment over 20 years ago and with this car, we reinforce our long-standing pedigree in safe, capable and versatile family cars,”

 

said Håkan Samuelsson, president and chief executive of Volvo Cars.

 

Currently, the new Sporty wagon V60 Cross Country is available at a starting price of $48,200.
