  • 2020 Volvo XC60 Polestar Engineered

    Polestar may be a standalone brand within Volvo Cars these days, but the former performance arm is still working its magic on various Volvo models. The latest models to receive the Polestar Engineered option are the V60 wagon and XC60 SUV, Volvo announced on Wednesday. The Polestar Engineered option is designed for the range-topping T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain. It features a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 on the front axle and an electric motor on the rear axle to create an all-wheel-drive system. Compared to the standard T8 Twin Engine powertrain, this setup...

    First drive review: The 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country is Swedish perfection on wheels

    The sun bathes Lulea, Sweden with light for less than eight hours during the middle of the winter. It rises over the Gulf of Bothnia and its small, frigid islands and sets behind the charming and colorful town scattered with red, yellow and white buildings. As pretty as this small city near the...

    2020 Volvo V60 Cross Country is proof SUVs aren't always necessary

    Volvo has a redesigned V60 wagon on sale soon, and just like its predecessor the handsome load lugger has spawned a more rugged V60 Cross Country variant. It isn't due until the 2020 model year, meaning the first examples won't hit the road until some time next year, and the only variant at launch...

  • 2019 Volvo V60

    Volvo pulled the covers off a redesigned V60 in March, and just like its predecessor the new wagon will spawn a more rugged V60 Cross Country variant. The new V60 Cross Country is expected to be shown soon, but according to Jim Nichols, product technology communications manager for Volvo Car USA, the vehicle isn't locked in for the U.S. market just yet. However, considering the larger V90 Cross Country outsells the regular V90 by a wide margin here, you can count on the new V60 Cross Country ending up here as well. The current-generation V60 Cross Country (shown below) has been on sale here...
