Volvo has revealed a jacked-up version of its V60 mid-size wagon, dubbed the V60 Cross Country.

The V60 CC follows the same formula as the larger V90 CC – it takes the regular V60’s sleek body and adds grey body cladding, off-road side sills and different bumpers. The Swedish wagon’s ride height is raised by 75mm, and it gains a number of off-road technologies including an off-road drive mode, hill descent control, off-road stability control and corner traction control.

Two powertrains are available: a 2.0-litre four-cylinder ‘T5’ turbo-petrol engine making 187kW of power and 350Nm of torque, or a 2.0-litre four-cylinder ‘D4’ turbo-diesel producing 140kW of power and 400Nm of torque. Both engines are connected to eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmissions that drive all four wheels. Volvo says mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid models will be available down the track.

Other features carried over from the regular V60 include a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Pilot Assist autonomous driving features and autonomous emergency braking.

The V60 Cross Country goes on sale in Europe next year. Australian timing is unconfirmed.
