Introduction

What Car? says...

Don’t you just love it when car names are simple and descriptive? Some marketers come up with some really obscure titles, like, who knows, a car named after the Latin word for grasshopper. But not the Volvo V60 Cross Country.

It's a Volvo V60 estate that's designed to go across the country by road or track. How refreshing is that? The V60 Cross Country's off-road ability is provided by an extra 60mm of ground clearance, four-wheel drive and hill descent control, all of which come as standard.

If you find yourself on a particularly challenging off-road route, there are even black plastic sills extensions, lower bumpers and wheelarches to help protect your investment.

There’s only one V60 Cross Country trim and it’s pretty well-stocked with toys, which is another bonus. You also get a choice of petrol or diesel engines, but not the full gamut of motors you can opt for with the regular V60.

So, if you’re looking for a four-wheel-drive car that’ll do some mud-plugging but isn’t quite an SUV, the Volvo V60 Cross Country could be just the ticket.

It has one obvious rival in the shape of the Audi A4 Allroad but you might, of course, be looking at some of the regular estate rivals that are available with four-wheel driver, such as the Audi A4 Avant, the BMW 3 Series Touring and the Mercedes C-Class Estate

Is the Volvo V60 Cross Country a good bet? How does it drive, is it spacious and, well, most pertinently, should you buy one? This comprehensive review will answer all those questions and more over.

Don’t forget, if you do decide to buy a new car of any make or model, you can find big savings on pretty much every new car on sale today by checking out the free What Car? New Car Buying service, where you'll find lots of great new Volvo deals.
