Review: 2017 Volvo V60 Cross Country

Recently, Volvo switched its entire lineup to four-cylinder power, from the big 90-series to the smaller 60-series. While the four-banger doesn't really do it in their larger vehicles, it works quite well in the small stuff, like this V60.

Specifically, this is a V60 Cross Country, the off-road version of the regular V60 wagon. You get some added ground clearance (7.9" total), along with black plastic fender flares and metal lower body trim to complete the look. The differences aren't merely cosmetic, though, evident by the skid plates beneath, and the Hill Descent Control button in the center stack!
