naias 2015 volvo s60 cross country bows

Coming to a Volvo showroom this summer is the high-riding crossover-sedan hybrid (as in plants, not Prii) S60 Cross Country.

The S60 Cross Country receives a 2.5-inch lift above the standard S60, with the 250-horsepower T5 turbo-five powering all four corners. 18-inch wheels deliver the power to the road, with 19-inch wheels optional.

The S60 Cross Country will arrive in the United States, Canada, Russia and Europe in limited numbers beginning this summer.

    Matte finish paint is awful on any car, and especially on this one.

      @PrincipalDan I don't get what it's supposed co "convey." Luxury? Not really. Sporty? Nope, shiny red does that better. Exclusivity? No, looks like primer.

    Ughhhh, this just reminds me how much I lusted after the 1999 Subaru Legacy SUS. In general, something about the exterior proportions, interior usability, and (depending on the engine) mechanical hardiness of this generation of Subaru Legacy is almost why not a luxed-out, raised, spoiler- and body-clad sedan version? Anyway, as seems to be the case with Volvo for the past few years: as cool as this is, they just seem to be missing the mark in terms of price/content/value proposition. You know how marques that have achieved volume attempt to push upwards in terms of prestige/brand recognition? Perhaps Volvo should consider producing some higher volume, lower cost cars? They already have the positive brand recognition, although it is eroding among the current generation of car buyers fast... I would bet they could make a durable, cheap, fun competitor to the Mercedes GLA. But it seems like nobody over at Volvo is paying attention these days,

  • RHD This looks like a lead balloon. You could buy a fantastic classic car for a hundred grand, or a Mercedes depreciationmobile. There isn't much reason to consider this over many other excellent vehicles that cost less. It's probably fast, but nothing else about it is in the least bit outstanding, except for the balance owed on the financing.
  • Jeff A bread van worthy of praise by Tassos.
  • Jeff The car itself is in really good shape and it is worth the money. It has lots of life left in it and can easily go over 200k.
  • IBx1 Awww my first comment got deletedTake your “millennial anti theft device” trope and wake up to the fact that we’re the only ones keeping manuals around.
