Serving Tallahassee, Valdosta, Thomasville, Quincy, Bainbridge

The 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country is a tall, coupe-like version of the popular 2017 Volvo S60 sedan. Each offers true spaciousness, upscale style, and a distinctive package of features. If you aren’t sure which is right for you, perhaps this comparison will help.

Performance

A turbo powers the 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country. This smart inline-four engine cranks out 240 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission ensures the best use of this power outlay. All-wheel drive is standard. The S60 T5 Dynamic and T5 Inscription also use this engine and transmission, but the standard is front-wheel drive with AWD optional. If you step up to the T6 AWD R-Design, all-wheel drive is mated to a turbocharged and supercharged powertrain. This swift 2-liter engine kicks out 302 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque.

Appearance

The 2017 Volvo S60 Cross Country has a taller stance. In fact, ground clearance measures 7.9 inches, a full two inches above a typical sedan. Although the look resembles a coupe, it has four doors and plenty of backseat wiggle room. It comes with front and rear skid plates, indicating its serious need to find adventure. There’s just one trim level, and Volvo piles on everything you'd expect from a premium ride. Leather upholstery covers the seats. The seven-inch display coordinates navigation, audio streaming, satellite capability, HD radio, and a rearview camera. A 12-speaker Harman Kardon delivers premium sound. Many drivers appreciate the seat height that comes with this car’s tall build. The sculpted sports seats keep you in place on tight turns. More traditional, the S60 sedan comes in regular and long-wheelbase sizes. These are offered in two trims apiece for a total of four. The T5 packs on almost as much as the Cross Country. Special details include power-fold rear headrests and headlight washers. You’ll find even more on the T5 Inscription and the Inscription Platinum. The T6 AWD R-Design sets itself apart with sport seats and distinctive trim elements.

Safety

The Cross Country comes with the all-weather traction of all-wheel drive. Automatic wipers, adaptive xenon headlights, and automatic high-beam control are ready to assist the driver's visibility in the darkest, trickiest conditions. Like the S60, the Cross Country offers standard low-speed automatic braking with its forward collision alert. A more advanced system with high-speed capability and a lane watch are part of a package. Pedestrian and cyclist detection strengthen its effectiveness. A blind spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert also help the driver avoid trouble. For an easier driving routine, you can take advantage of adaptive cruise control with queue assist. Automatic parking assistance will slip these models into and out of a tight space.
