The new 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country is a wagon for those people who like to take adventures on the road. The vehicle has a higher ride height and additional body cladding, the V60 Cross Country looks and feels slightly more rugged than the standard V60 wagon. The price of starts at $46,095, it comprises a $45,100 base price and the mandatory $995 destination charge.
In this price, you will only get a V60 Cross Country in Ice White with Volvo’s T5 powertrain, a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 with 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle is good on an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway.
If we talk about higher-end luxurious brands like Audi and its model A4 Allroad is the only direct competitor to the V60 Cross Country. However, rivalry takes place worldwide not just in the US market. In the US, a German station wagon will cost from $45,700, this is just $600 more expensive than the V60 Cross Country. The A4 Allroad is equipped with a 248 hp engine. Four-wheel drive is standard.
Other then this, a Subaru Outback can be compared with the Volvo V60 CC only conditionally, as they are the vehicles of different price categories. Particularly, the Outback would be much cheaper from $26,345, but to look at the large perspective, Subaru is not a luxury brand. The recently revealed 2020 Volkswagen Passat Alltrack is currently not for sale in America, whereas Volkswagen Golf Alltrack is available to US customers ($26,895), but it is smaller than the V60 CC.
Moving on, the base V60 Cross Country comes standard with a 9-inch Sensus Connect infotainment system, embedded navigation, a keyless entry, a panoramic sunroof, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-keep assist. Talking about the exterior, it includes a set of 19-inch alloy wheels (18s are standard) for $800, and you can get dual tailpipe outlets on each side as a $285 accessory.
