As the last Volvo V60 with a gas engine, the Cross Country makes a case for itself by being well-equipped, offering loads of comfort, and being safe as houses. It is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, and comes with standard all-wheel drive.
Inside, you'll find the elegant cabin temperate due to dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, and leather upholstery. Other standard items include a nine-inch infotainment screen, a ten-speaker sound system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a panoramic sunroof. Driver's assists include bind-spot monitoring, lane keep assist, cruise control, driver attention alert, and post-crash braking.
Although the V60 Cross Country comes in just a single trim, Volvo offers several packages to provide at least some choice for prospective buyers. Package prices begin at $750 for the Climate Package, which adds heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated windscreen washers. For $1,900, the Advanced Package equips adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree surround-view camera system, and more. The priciest upgrade is the $2,800 Lounge Package, with items like power seat cushions for the front seats, four-zone automatic climate control, and a memory system for the front passenger seat. Individual upgrades worth considering include the $4,000 Bowers & Wilkins sound system and massaging front seats for $500. However, the latter option requires upgrading to perforated Nappa leather upholstery for an additional $2,800.
