Volvo S60 Coming This Summer, V60 Cross Country Also Confirmed

Volvo unveiled the redesigned V60 earlier today and it appears we’re going to have to wait several months before the S60 celebrates its debut.

In an interview with Roadshow, Volvo senior vice president Lex Kerssemakers revealed the new sedan will be unveiled in South Carolina this summer. While that may sound like a strange place to unveil the car, it’s actually pretty fitting as the upcoming model will be built in the state.

Besides confirming plans for the S60, Kerssemakers revealed the company will once again offer a V60 Cross Country. The SVP didn’t say much about the model but it will likely mimic the V90 Cross Country and come equipped with plastic body cladding and an increase ride height.

Both the S60 and V60 Cross Country will ride on the Scalable Product Architecture and share engines with the new V60. As a result we can expect a 2.0-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder which has outputs of 150 PS (110 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque as well as 190 PS (140 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. On the petrol side, there will be an entry-level T5 as well as a 2.0-liter T6 producing 310 PS (228 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque.

Fans looking for something more eco-friendly can opt for the T6 plug-in hybrid which has a 253 PS (186 kW) four-cylinder engine, a 117 PS (65 kW) electric motor and a 10.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This setup enables the V60 to produce a combined output of 340 PS (251 kW) and 590 Nm (435 lb-ft) of torque. This allows the wagon to run from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and travel up to 45 km (27.9 miles) on electricity alone.

The T8 plug-in hybrid is largely identical but it features an upgraded engine that produces 303 PS (223 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. As a result, the combined output climbs to 390 PS (288 kW) and 640 Nm (472 lb-ft) of torque.

    I know some people are going to hate me but someone should render this in theold 850R guise. Remember be respectful. Lol.

    Not to big (it is). Not to heavy (I hope). AWD T6 (please).

      Sadly, the T6 isn’t one.

  • TheHake

    Looks just like the V90, which is NOT a bad thing!

  • Marty

    Really good looking, but much to close to V90. Will people be able to tell them apart?

    Here is what they look like on top of each other if you split V60 to give them the same wheelbase. It’s pretty much the same measurements all over. It’s good to have a scalable architecture, but is scalable design really something to pursue?

      They can keep this, but I think they need to make the V90 bigger (and boxier?).

    • ErnieB

      This v60 looks better than the slightly longer v90.. v60 is just right and has a sportier look too..

      • Marty

        Yes, the 90 series sometimes look a little flattened, like it’s being pressed down by something. I don’t get that feeling from the V60. But the 90 is still more elegant.

    Sexy little wagon. I hope that the imminent S60 comes out with different tail lights to the ones in the S90. To me thats’s its only flaw.
