Interior layout

The interior layout, fit and finish

For the driver, the V60 Cross Country is as good as we’ve come to expect from Volvo. The driving position is excellent (if a little on the high side), while the seats deserve a special mention – they’re supportive, accommodating and comfortable. All-round visibility is fine, but the dashboard layout could be clearer.

Heating, infotainment and a number of other functions are controlled by a selection of buttons on the dashboard that are arranged to resemble an old-school mobile phone touchpad. To confuse things further, there are four identically sized dials as well. In practice, we found ourselves having to look away from the road far too often to operate what we needed.

The dated feel is continued in the infotainment screen itself. At 7.0in in size, it’s smaller than many rivals and is trickier to navigate. There is also the option of a digital instrument cluster to replace the conventional dials. This is a good idea in principal, but has worse graphics and functionality than what you’d get in an Audi or VW.

Even so, a good spread of soft-touch plastics and attractive trims do lift the interior, making it a nice enough place to spend a few hours.
