We like the wagons stylish, fast and low and when the V60 wagon of the Volvo was presented with the same stylish, fast and low characteristics not most of us are satisfied. This pseudo-crossover standing tall and in cross country form did not stoke any fire inside us, do we need another excuse of a crossover-y and does an apology of a van is essentially necessary when looks that it would do look better with some more butching. Another question that arises is head whether a company like Volvo needs a vehicle like the V60 Cross Country when it will be sharing space in the dealerships with the XC70 which is thematically same.
After all these questions, we are quite satisfied with the execution of the Cross Country. The Volvo engineers have refrained themselves from plopping down off-road features like the roof cross rails, body cladding, and brush guards. In fact, the thing we have got in our hands is a V60 with an additional height of 2.6-inches. It additionally has mirror trim, blackened out windows, front and rear skid plates, silver rocker trim, dark window tinting and a honeycomb design grille. The above-said skid plates does not appear to be safeguarding anything.
The black trim on the arched fenders nicely fill the breach developed by the lifted suspension visually. It will be the same diamond pattern 18- inch wheels whether you choose the Premier for $41,940 or the Platinum trim of $45,590 price and they will be encircled by the Continental all-seasons measuring 235/50. The V60 with its tall height offers a different aura than what the regular V60 and it is effective too as it represents a proper wagon. The V60 is offered in 4-door hatchback body style and can seat 5 passengers while it sports 4-wheel drive.
