Volvo Cars is to showcase its all-new S60 Cross Country at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), next week.
Like the recently announced V60 Cross Country, the S60 Cross Country comes with the same capable all-wheel drive underpinnings of its sibling in a saloon crossover guise. The model will also be available with front-wheel drive.
Its design brings a sporty, unconventional and adventurous edge to the saloon concept.
Senior vice president sales, marketing and customer service, Alain Visser, said: “The S60 Cross Country is the sole contender in the crossover saloon segment. We have identified a clear niche in the market for a more capable saloon with rugged styling cues and a higher stance. The S60 Cross Country will appeal to people that are searching for an exciting and capable saloon, whilst enjoying the clear benefits that a crossover offers.”
Senior vice president product strategy and vehicle line management at Volvo Cars, Lex Kerssemakers, said: “We have included all the capability-driven benefits of the Cross Country brand in this new model, while offering a completely unique expression of adventure and all-road readiness in a distinctly sporty and stylish package.”
Pricing details are expected to follow, with order books opening in the next few months.
