2016 Volvo S60 Cross Country Overview
This is totally new concept, and to be honest even we are not completely sure even Volvo can pull this right. S60 is a popular sedan from the Volvo line, and Cross Country is its sport utility version. We all saw the high interest in crossovers in last few years, than Volvo decided to go one step further and give all of its popular station vagon’s a more off-road capable almost crossover version, and all of these models got the Cross Country extension in their names. This is one step further from their already controversial plans. They decided to release the first crossover sedan vehicle, or the sedan with higher off-road capability.
Numerous crossover vehicles are chosen because of their high ride and easier enter and exit, so we already witnessed many of the hard core sedan lovers replacing their vehicles with crossovers in last few years. This model will offer something new for the hard core sedan lovers, and that’s the high ride sedan, capable of getting dirty in the off-road conditions.
