2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country: Redesign, Specs & Performance
Equal capacity in cities and forests. This is the Swedish promise of the 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country, initially launched with a petrol engine and a diesel, but with electrified versions already confirmed for a later time.
Volvo continues to expand its offer in the market, focusing mainly on three large families, the “S” saloons, the “V” vans and the “XC” SUVs. For the second big family, there is now something new in the more adventurous Cross Country, the designation created by the brand in 1997 to designate the proposals that stand out for the added versatility obtained by the combination of the modularity of the station wagon with an improved motricity that allows move off the asphalt. This is the promise of the new Volvo V60 Cross Country, a model that promises just as much to navigate urban traffic or in the midst of forests and other off-road routes.
2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country Performance
With no changes to the capacity of the luggage compartment in relation to the new V60, already launched this year and with prices for Portugal recently revealed, the 529L that can be extended up to 1364L should be maintained. The major novelties arise, therefore, in the mechanical preparation to leave the tar roads, which began with increasing ground clearance by 75mm. In addition, the Volvo V60 Cross Country brings changes to the level of the chassis and suspension and has a four-wheel drive system that gives you greater safety when you adventure through the field.
Also in technological systems, there is a superior preparation for these adventures. For this, there are systems such as Hill Descent Control or Corner Traction Control. And also in the modes of conducting happens to be contemplating an ‘off-road’ configuration that invites to the adventure. But it is not because I like to go “from the hills” that the 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country has neglected the safe driving in a city environment. For greater protection in the standing (city), it includes City Safety, which is able to recognize pedestrians, cyclists and even large animals. In addition, comfort in driving is provided by the possibility of using the Pilot Assist with semi-autonomous driving, other assistive devices and the capabilities of the Sensus Connect Infotainment.
Although the date of arrival in the market is not known, it has already been confirmed that the New Volvo V60 Cross Country will initially be available with two engines. They are the T5 gasoline and the Diesel D4, always appearing in this adventurer’s van, the integral traction system. For a later time, the arrival of new options electrified for the Volvo V60 Cross Country range was also guaranteed.
