Source : 2015 Volvo V60 Cross Country D4 SE Nav UK review
High-riding front-wheel-drive estate adds extra versatility to Volvo’s V60 range, although there are better value alternatives out there A more rugged edition of Volvo’s V60 estate as well as also another example of the Swedish producer’s attempt to exploit its Cross Country sub-brand more aggressively, following on coming from its V40 Cross Country.that has a 201mm ride height, of which Cross Country product sits 65mm higher than a standard V60. Cosmetic styling additions include front as well as also rear skid plates, a metallic honeycomb front grille, wheel arch extensions as well as also gloss trim around the doors as well as also mirrors. The Cross Country also gets dual exhaust tailpipes for a ‘more premium look’.The V60 Cross Country comes in four trim levels – SE, SE Nav, Lux as well as also Lux Nav – as well as also that has a choice of three diesel engines. The entry-level motor is actually the ‘D3’ 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel unit with 148bhp as well as also 258lb ft. Next up is actually the D4 of the same cubic capacity, although producing 188bhp as well as also 295lb ft. Both are front-wheel drive.The range-topper is actually a 2.4-litre all 5-cylinder turbodiesel engine labelled ‘D4 AWD’, also developing 188bhp although that has a hefty 309lb ft as well as also four-wheel drive. Buyers get the choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox with the D3 as well as also D4 variants, while the flagship D4 AWD is actually automatic only.We drove the 188bhp D4 SE Nav manual, which sits right from the middle of the V60 Cross Country range as well as also is actually supposed to be the biggest seller of the range. Like for like, a V60 Cross Country D4 SE Nav manual is actually £1200 more than the standard V60 D4 SE Nav.
