Rundown

Sentiment Score[*] 70%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The new Volvo V60 Cross Country has a 187bhp D4 four-cylinder diesel engine, sending power to an all-wheel-drive system through an eight-speed auto box. It rides 60mm higher than a regular V60, thanks to a combination of suspension changes and larger-diameter tyres. The interior is sumptuous and comfortable, using the same high-quality materials, designed around an excellent nine-inch portrait-style infotainment screen.

Sentiment Score[*] 75%
Reviewers from Carmagazine have found the following[***]:
The V60 Cross Country is a raised up V60 with a more rugged all-round look. Ride height has been increased by 60mm over the V60, while all-wheel drive, an automatic gearbox and Hill Descent Control are fitted as standard. Front parking sensors also make the kit list, as does comfort-orientated suspension. The V60 CC proves itself to be a very capable machine indeed.

Volvo's new V60 Cross Country is a relaxed, easygoing cruiser. The Cross Country uses the same all-wheel-drive system as the standard V60 T6. The V60 doesn't get the optional rear air suspension of the larger V90 Cross Country.

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The V60 Cross Country is based on the V60 station wagon, but it traded its Stan Smiths for a pair of REI hiking boots. All-wheel drive is optional on the regular V60; it's standard on the Cross Country. The Cross Country offers 29.7 cubic feet of trunk space with four passengers on-board.
