What Car? says...

Apparently, there are a few people out there who don’t quite want an SUV but want to sit higher than in a regular estate car. For those individuals, there’s the Volvo V60 Cross Country, a car that bridges the gap between the regular V60 and the XC60.

To make the Cross Country, Volvo raises the suspension and adds chunkier tyres so it sits 65mm higher, throws on some 4x4 inspired bumpers and then extends the wheelarches with some black plastic. It might sound fairly minor, but it’s enough to give the Cross Country a much tougher look.

As you can only get it in the higher trim levels and with the more powerful diesel engines, the Cross Country does work out to be a lot pricier than the regular V60, although it’s cheaper than rivals such as the Audi A4 Allroad. The more spacious Volkswagen Passat Alltrack does undercut it, however.

Before you have a look at its rivals, read on for our comprehensive review of the V60 Cross Country.
