Back in 1997 the Swedish automaker Volvo introduced a brand that was derived from a wagon but had the off-roading capabilities as well, it was the Cross Country brand from Volvo, which along with Subaru anticipated the growth in the SUV market and imparted some all-terrain features to their famous wagons. At the LA auto show Volvo added another name in the Cross Country series as it unveiled the V60 Cross Country with some notable trims to its wagon format. The V60 CC will be the third model from the Volvo’s CC brand (the V70 CC & the V60 CC being the other two). Let us find out why does Volvo claim to bring the two worlds of sports and comfort together, in the rest of the article.

The AWD 6-speed automatic transmission will be coupled to this turbocharged 2.5 litre T5 (5-cylinder) petrol engine that makes the numbers stop at 250 Hp and 361 Nm of torque. This powertrain is anticipated to be available in USA and Canada and will offer a low fuel efficiency of approximately 10 Kmpl, these numbers may sound very ordinary in front of the new carbon conscious yet powerful generation of vehicles, although the torque vectoring technology which is capable of transmitting variable torque to each of the 4 wheels, Hill Descent Control which is useful while descending a steep slope and the corner traction control technology try to make things interesting with better off roading characteristics.
While the wheel size offered will be 18 or 19 inches in the V60 CC, the outer body will become rugged and dust resistant with skid plates at the front & rear, fender extensions and side scuff plates. The overall ride will be about 66 mm higher than the wagon and thus assure better clearance against the rocky roads. The V60 CC carries the characteristic Volvo theme on the outsides with round cornered headlamps and long tail-lamps, although the silhouettes on the bonnet & at the rear and twin exhaust pipes integrated in the rear bumper, impart a good amount of aggression to the V60 CC. On the insides the Volvo V60 CC will come with sports black leather seats with distinctive brown stitching, Volvo also looks to offer two tone leather upholsteries in the mud-loving V60.
Words have been heard on the anticipated launch of V60 Cross Country in UK as well which will be powered by Volvo’s 5-cylinder D3 (134 Hp) and more powerful 5-cylinder, 2.0 litre 179 Hp D4 turbo diesel engines, Volvo might offer AWD option with the latter variant. I’m expecting the V60 CC T5 to be offered at $ 42K, Volvo may launch its tweaked version sooner, because I personally feel that this one might need some tweaks, well we’ll find that out later.
