Volvo introduced the “high-cross” S60 Cross Country sedan, which premiered on January 2015 at the Detroit.
Interesting detail: the number of foreign manufacturers offer consumers “raised” station wagons – Volkswagen Golf Alltrack, Skoda Octavia Scout, Opel Insignia Country Tourer, Audi A4/A6 allroad Quattro, etc. But among such models still was not… a sedan.
2015 Volvo S60 Cross Country sedan is a unique car.
We recalled a few all-terrains. Among these, for example, a Subaru Outback and AMC Eagle. But to imagine nowadays a premium sedan, crossover, you see, is not so easy. However… don’t the Swedish experiment reminds you of with some of the views already quite familiar BMW X6?
Although all-wheel-drive mid-size sedans, including the Volvo S60 4×4, but the clearance in these models, mainly at the level of ordinary passenger cars. The S60 Cross Country road clearance is 200 mm, i.e. 65 mm more than the standard version.
“Why not?” thought Volvo and suggested to public all-wheel/all-terrain sedan called S60 Cross Country. It is easy to guess that this model is designed on the basis of regular S60, which has the ground clearance increased. In addition, Volvo S60 Cross Country will have not only front-wheel drive transmission (for European countries and other markets, which will be presented this car), but the version with AWD drive.
Volvo S60 Cross Country will be equipped with plastic apron, saving body from snow, rocks or branches and 18-in or 19-in alloy wheels with a high profile tires. The latter, as claimed, will not only improve the comfort in the cabin, but will provide extra protection from punctures and abrasion during operation on off-road surfaces.
