Volvo S60 Cross Country to be launched in India on March 11

Volvo India will launch its new sedan, the S60 Cross Country, on March 11. The sedan, which made its debut at the Detroit Motor Show 2015, not only has a greater visual appeal but also comes with an all-wheel drive system with ride height up by 65mm over the standard S60 to allow buyers the choice of a four-door sedan body style and yet give them the freedom for occasional off-roading.

Internationally, the S60 Cross Country gets the option of front-wheel drive and all-wheel-drive. For India, the S60 Cross Country will come with a five-cylinder 2.4-litre D4 engine that makes 178bhp. The car also comes with the same equipment seen on the top-spec standard S60 sedan and also offers AWD- and SUV-like ground clearance.

Volvo is expected to launch a slew of new models this year in India with the company expected to introduce its Polestar performance division sometime during the year with a performance version of the S60 sedan along with more mainstream models like the V40 and V40 Cross Country facelifts.
