With the unveiling of the exciting S60 Cross Country at the Detroit Auto Show, Volvo Cars is trying to satisfy the customers' requirements and their expectations. Delving into deeper levels of the automotive world with the Cross Country brand, the manufacturer seeks to offer one completely different and unique on-road driving experience with a remarkably stylish and sporty unit.
The new Volvo S60 Cross Country will take its power from the front-wheel drive diesel D4 engine that pumps 190 HP. This power unit is based on Volvo's class-leading Drive-E powertrain architecture which demonstrates uncompromising mixture of quality and performance in European markets. What is more, a diesel All-Wheel Drive D4 will also be introduced based on the 2.5L 5-cylinder diesel engine which is already known for its efficiency.
Similar to its sibling, the recently announced V60 Cross Country, the S60 Cross Country's ride height has been increased by 65mm (2.5 inches) and arrives with the same All-Wheel Drive system. The latter turns the crossover into the only fully capable and good-looking all-road saloon on the market. Additionally, the new Volvo will be available with front-wheel drive in the UK and selected markets as well.
Lastly, the 2015 Cross Country moves on 18- or 19-inch alloy wheels with high-profile tires which are said to not only ensure better comfort, but also lower the level of noise and increase wheel protection in different on – road as well as off-road conditions.
The crossover is set to debut in a few days at NAIAS when most probably we will learn about the price as well.
