volvo v60

Volvo has revealed its all-new V60 Cross Country ahead of the vehicle’s debut later this month at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. It’s similar in concept to the Subaru Outback and Audi A4 Allroad in that it offers buyers the option of going off-road without them having to resort to a more conventional SUV

Compared to the regular V60 wagon on which it’s based, the new V60 Cross Country benefits from an additional 2.6 inches of ground clearance as well as underbody protection and an advanced all-wheel-drive system with torque vectoring technology and corner traction control. A hill descent system is also fitted as standard

The V60 Cross Country will be offered exclusively with Volvo’s older turbocharged 2.5-liter mill initially, which is good for 250 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and the aforementioned all-wheel-drive system, the vehicle should return a combined fuel economy of about 23 mpg

The U.S. will be among the first markets to receive the V60 Cross Country. It’s expected to go on sale early next year following the debut in L.A. Options will include 18- and 19-inch wheels, leather trim with contrast stitching, and the latest Sensus Connect infotainment system

Pricing is yet to be revealed but expect a slight premium on the $41,365 price tag of the regular V60 T5 AWD model
