Volvo S60 Cross Country sedan debuts at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show

Tthe all-new Volvo S60 Cross Country has debuted on the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, surely one of the weirdest Volvo’s ever conceived, but it somehow looks kinda cool, especially in this matte black paint. The Volvo S60 Cross Country is a crossover sedan based on the Volvo S60, daring too, as most crossovers are based on wagons or hatchbacks.
No changes to the interior, stock S60 stuff. Should have been a bit wilder to match the exterior.
The 4WD Volvo S60 Cross Country gets 2.5 inches of additional ride height, 18- or 19-inch wheels, black plastic around the wheel arches, side bars, and all-black window frames. Sadly, there is no roof rack. The Cross Country will be available with various petrol and diesel engines, including the 250hp T5 turbocharged five-cylinder petrol and the 202hp D5 turbocharged five-cylinder diesel.
Skid pad at the back, smoothly integrated exhaust pipe tips. The S60 Cross Country will debut in China on the Shanghai Auto Show in April and will be launched on the Chinese car market in the second half of the year as an import for about 400.000 yuan.
Another skid pad at the front, edged in chrome. Stones and mud will love it. All in all an interesting car, but what about a Cross Country version of the China-made and stretched Volvo S60L? Now that would be a crossover!
