Trim: Cross Country
The Cross Country has more than enough gubbins to keep the gadget lovers entertained, including a 9.0in touchscreen with sat-nav. There’s also a 10-speaker stereo, LED headlights and front foglights, front and rear parking sensors, an electric tailgate, hill descent control and dual-zone climate control.
Engine: 2.0 D4  Cross Country Plus
The only engine available in the Cross Country is a 2.0-litre 187bhp diesel that’s connected to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. It’s our favourite engine in the regular V60 range, proving refined on the move, with plenty of power.
