Earlier this year Volvo revealed its new S60 Cross Country. It’s really nothing more than a lifted
S60 sedan with all-wheel drive, but Volvo is curious these days about exploring potential new niches. During a recent sit down with Car and Driver, Volvo’s new head of North American operations, Lex Kerssemakers, admitted that "the Cross Country is a concept we introduced in 1997, and is a step forward. Traditionally, the concept always applied to SUVs or to wagons. We have said now that we are going to apply it to a sedan. And we are the first."
