Volvo’s retooled V60 Cross Country keeps to off-road script


The V60 Cross Country has a ground clearance of about 8.4 inches, roughly 3 inches more than the standard V60.

Volvo, fresh off a redesign of the 2019 V60 wagon, is sticking to the same playbook with the revamped V60 Cross Country.

The 2020 V60 Cross Country, introduced Tuesday, has all the design cues that have been staples of Volvo’s Cross Country variants: increased ground clearance, black body cladding, Cross Country-specific chassis and suspension as well as standard all-wheel drive.

The V60 Cross Country, now on Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture platform, is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 250 hp.

It has a ground clearance of about 8.4 inches, roughly 3 inches more than the standard V60. Volvo said mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants will join the V60 Cross Country lineup.

The V60 Cross Country is expected to arrive in 2019 as a 2020 model after the redesigned V60 goes on sale.

Volvo’s Cross Country wagons have long been seen as alternatives to crossovers and SUVs.

The Cross Country variants trace their roots to 1997 with the V70 XC, which became the XC70. The V90 Cross Country replaced the XC70 last year.
