2016 Volvo V60 Cross Country Rendered: Crossover Estate

Based on recent spy photos, Virtuel-Car has rendered these images to give us a better impression of what the V60 CC might look like. A combination of the regular V60's features and those of the smaller V40 Cross Country leaves a lasting impression.

Why buy a V60 over the XC60 SUV? Because the powertrains will feel more connected and the driving experience will be more pleasurable.

Speaking of engines, those prototypes spotted in Spain had their badges intact, one of them being a T5 petrol with the latest 2-liter Drive-E engine, the other a diesel. Most of these crossovers will be sold with either the 150 PS D3 mill or the 190 PS D4. Eight-speed automatics will be available as an alternative to the six-speed manual.

The V60 was first introduced as an estate version of the S60 in 2000. The model is currently in its second generation, with Volvo having updated it with everything from plug-in hybrid to Polestar's 350 PS performance 6-cylinder.

THe V60 Cross Country will have no shortage of competitors, most of which are, predictably, German. There's the Passat Alltrack, a new generation of which is on the way, the A4 allroad quattro, Opel Insignia Country Tourer and even a Citroen.
