  • Better off off-road than the regular V60
  • More comfortable to drive than the V60 T5
  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Nothing in particular


Volvo V60 Cross Country is more capable off-road than the regular V60, but isn't an SUV. Cross Country uses the same all-wheel-drive system as the standard V60 T6, which can split power 50/50 between the front and rear axles. The V60 and Cross Country are dimensionally identical inside.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

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.

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.

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.
