The new Volvo V60 Cross Country will be unveiled at the LA Motor Show this week, bringing the number of Cross Country models in Volvo’s line-up to three.

The V60 Cross Country features ground clearance increased by 65mm over the standard V60, plus the option of all-wheel-drive.

Torque vectoring and corner traction control systems will ensure all V60 Cross Country models have the all-weather capability hinted at by their rugged looks.

The Cross Country models wear skid plates front and rear, side scuff plates, bumper extensions and the option of new 18″ and 19″ alloy wheels.

The interior features sports seats in black leather with brown stitching, plus a selection of two-tone leather options.

The V60 Cross Country range starts with a D3 front-wheel-drive model, while a D4 diesel engine will be available in both front- and all-wheel-drive form.

Production is expected to start in May with first deliveries in late June.
