    The new Volvo S60, V60 and XC60:

    Major renewal boosts the dynamic appearance and appeal of the Volvo 60 cluster

    • New design focusing on quality and attention to detail
    • Fuel consumption down to a class-leading 4.0 l/100km and CO2 emissions of just 106 g/km in the Volvo S60
    • New, more comfortable sport seats
    • Sensus Connected Touch system with unique on-line possibilities
    • Permanent high beam with groundbreaking technology


    "This is the most extensive development of existing models in our company's history. Each of the enhancements is designed around our customers' needs. We have focused on quality and attention to detail in order to give these dynamic models a major boost and sharpen their competitiveness," says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy & Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Car Group. He continues: "The S60 and XC60 are our best-selling models in several important markets, and the innovative V60 Plug-in Hybrid has got off to a flying start. We have been listening very carefully to our customers in order to make improvements that ensure that we make these successful cars more attractive."

    Emphasised attention to detail

    Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed.

    This is evident in the redesigned interior and exterior of the new 60 cars.

    Volvo Cars reveals new V60 Cross Country



    • All-road, all-weather capability and rugged design
    • V60 sporty driving feel with added ‘go-anywhere’ capability
    • Extends Volvo’s acclaimed Cross Country product line-up
    • Important product for North American growth plan


    Volvo Cars unveils the long-awaited Cross Country version of its successful V60 sportswagon at the 2014 LA Motor Show this month.

    “We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio. The successful combination of dynamic styling and rugged capability places the V60 Cross Country in a class of its own,” said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.

    Sporty capability
    “With ground clearance increased 65mm compared to the V60, the Cross Country’s sturdy construction offers unparalleled control on and off the beaten track, coupled with an enhanced sporty driving experience thanks to torque vectoring technology and corner traction control. The V60 Cross Country really is a getaway car – enabling an adventurous lifestyle in pure rugged form,” said Lex Kerssemakers.

    Offering new Cross Country 18” and 19” wheels, the V60 Cross Country comes with high profile tyres, adding comfort and off-road aesthetics, reducing road noise and providing added wheel protection whether climbing kerbs or negotiating rocky roads.

    Rugged individualist design
    Central to the Cross Country concept is the expression of go-anywhere capability and rugged design. It caters to those who have an active lifestyle, favouring the dirt road over the paved, handling either with ease. This is manifested in the V60 Cross Country through explicit design cues that heighten the adventurous nature of the car. With increased ground clearance, skid plates front and rear, side scuff plates and fender extenders, the V60 Cross Country conveys an imposing, muscular presence that underlies its capable nature, while integrated tailpipes reflect its sporty dark side. To complement the capable exterior styling, sports seats in black leather with distinctive brown stitching will be available from launch, while two new two-tone leather upholsteries will be offered to coincide with the EU and Rest of World Launch in early 2015.

    Powertrains
    The US and Canada will get the first V60 Cross Country cars, and they will launch with Volvo’s iconic five cylinder 250 hp petrol engine with All-Wheel Drive coupled to an automatic transmission delivering a highly competitive 23 mpg.

    Drive-E power
    Volvo’s new class-leading Drive-E four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines, which will be available in the V60 Cross Country globally in early 2015, will be the base for the Front-Wheel Drive variant, while the proven five-cylinder D4 powertrain will provide the power for the All-Wheel Drive variant.

    I'v chosen to put this in the S60/V60 thread instead of a separate thread because it's not a XC version of the V60 it's merely a V60 Cross Country.

    But at the same time they say:
    “We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio.
    This is there third Cross Country model?
    They already have the "V40 Cross Country" .... and this one....
    Are they also counting the XC70, as a "V70 Cross Country"? But not so long ago they said they didn't want to call the "V40 Cross Country", XC40 because it's not a real XC car. (its not for off-road and its not a Jeep thing).

    Or maybe they are not that good in doing maths.

    Or maybe, just maybe, it's pure marketing bullshit.

    On the other hand this looks to have the ground clearance to actually allow it to go to places.

    Volvo takes Cross Country brand into sedan territory

    • Volvo Cars points to the future with the exciting S60 Cross Country
    • A segment first from Volvo Cars
    • Builds on a strong heritage of lifestyle-oriented products


    Volvo Cars is stepping up to meet the demands of its core customers with the unveiling of the exciting S60 Cross Country at the Detroit Auto Show.

    Back in 1997, when Volvo was the first premium brand to introduce an all-road capable variant of its successful wagons, no one could predict the future success of the crossover concept. Today, the crossover is ubiquitous and has helped to define a whole new category of lifestyle vehicle. Volvo is once again taking a bold step forward – this time in the sedan segment – with the unveiling of the S60 Cross Country – the first premium sedan with the same level of capability and rugged design cues of the renowned Cross Country wagons.

    Capable stance

    Like the recently introduced V60 Cross Country, the S60 Cross Country shares an increased ride height of 65mm (2.5 inches) and comes with the same capable All-Wheel Drive underpinnings of its sibling, making it the only truly capable and stylish all-road sedan crossover on the market. The S60 Cross Country will also be delivered with front-wheel drive in Europe and selected markets.

    So far all the swoopy SUVs (X6, GLE) have been build purely for massive wankers. Not sure if that will work for this one.

    They should Dakar it.
