Check Out The Volvo S60 Cross Country In 22 New Photos

Volvo’s intriguing S60 Cross Country jacked-up sedan returns in a new official photo gallery, allowing us to have a better look at its unusual stance.

Volvo hasn’t said much about the S60 Cross Country since the car debuted in January at the Detroit Auto Show, so here’s a quick recap.

The sedan sits 65mm (2.5in) higher above the ground than regular S60 models and comes with the all-wheel drive system from the V60 Cross Country – although Europe and selected markets will also get front-wheel drive variants.

Besides the raised ground clearance, the S60 Cross Country distinguishes itself from standard S60 sedans thanks to the unique cross country honeycomb grille, glossy black green house and mirror caps, as well as the Cross Country emblem embossed in the rear skid plate.

Volvo offers standard 18-inch and optional 19-inch wheels with high profile tyres that are said to improve comfort and all-road aesthetics, reduce road noise, and add increased wheel protection when needed. The S60 Cross Country will be available in five exterior colors: Onyx Black, Osmium Grey, Crystal White, Bright Silver and Rich Java.

The interior is not very different from regular S60 models, with upgrades including sport seats and a Piano Black deco option.

The Volvo S60 Cross Country’s engine lineup includes a powerful T5 All-Wheel Drive 2.0-liter turbo petrol powertrain delivering 254PS (250hp), a 190PS (187hp) All Wheel Drive D4 based on the 2.4-liter five-cylinder diesel engine and a front-wheel drive 190PS (187hp) 2.0-liter diesel D4. Mated to a manual transmission, the latter averages 4.2 l/100 km (56 mpg US or 67.2 mpg UK), corresponding to CO2 emissions of 111 g/km.

In the US, the S60 Cross Country will launch with Volvo’s 250hp 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-five and standard all-wheel drive. The S60 Cross Country goes on sale this summer in the United States and Europe with prices starting from $43,500 (US), and €43,840 (Germany).

    Honestly, i’m not into it, it looks old and outdated.
    Volvo should focus on their strength vehicle, the XC90 and come out with a brand new smaller version of it, like a XC60 or a XC70 and maybe two or 3 cars that’s all they need.

    • fabri99

      I totally agree with you, they have to focus on cars that will sell, aka XC90, XC60, S60, V60 and maybe also something sporty.

      This is only a cost effective last use of the old ford platform. All the new models will be here until 2019. Next year we’ll see a new S90, V90, V90 Cross Country. 2017: XC60, V60 (might see a new V60 Cross Country) and S60 (new SPA platform). 2018-2019: V40, V40 Cross Country, XC40 and S40 (new CMA platform).

  • Weirdly, I like it a lot.

  • Julien Lachemoi

    I don’t know, sometimes I’m loving the idea and sometimes I’m “meh” about it.

  • dumblikeyou2

    Was somebody asking for this?

  • TheHake

    I LOVE this! Buying an SUV doesn’t always make sense in Europe. With this, you have the ability of a “road” SUV, but still have a sedan. I’d love one. Pity I can’t afford it. 🙁

    • Julien Lachemoi

      But what is the ability of a SUV ? Except offering as much space as a MPV and the looks of a 4×4 ?

      • TheHake

        No. Driving dirt roads which you wont do with a normal car. If you go on holiday to Belgium or Italy, there are a LOT of dirt roads that a normal low car can’t do.

  • J Hod

    as much as i love the s60 and anything volvo, this is kinda dumb. at least it looks decent

  • Ilbirs

    Subaru Outback SUS, AMC Eagle Sedan and GAZ M72 Pobeda greet the new addition to the stable.

  • Bo Hanan

    If anyone was going to make this idea work it would have been Subaru and they failed.
    “High-rise sedans” look weird.

  • Rich Money

    is anyone else offended by that ugly hood cut that scars the front fender? I don’t get it.

  • stephen

    Looks fantastic! I hope it’s a success.
    Outside of the U.S. not everyone wants a crossover or SUV. This gives the raised seating height for vision, and easier entry and exit for older motorists, which seem to be the usual justification for buying a SUV.

  • Terry Peters

    Love it! Can’t wait to get one. I’ve had two S60s in the past, and this is exactly what I’m looking fot — a sedan that sits up higher but doesn’t look like a station wagon (like most SUVs).
