Volvo NZ goes further Cross Country

Volvo Cars New Zealand is backing its pitch that the market is continuing to head towards SUVs, adding another crossover model to its range.

General manager Steve Kenchington noted the changing market in a statement last week, read his comments HERE .

The latest model for the brand is a Cross Country version of the V60, featuring all wheel drive and ground clearance increased 65mm compared to the V60. Hill Descent Control, which automatically keeps the car at a constant speed when driving down a hill, is standard, increasing capability in steep, low traction situations.

The exterior features a unique cross country honey comb grille, glossy black mirror caps and window surround as well as a Cross Country emblem embossed in the rear skid plate. Offering new 18” and 19” wheels, the V60 Cross Country comes with higher profile tyres.

The rear seats can be folded down in three 40/20/40 segments, providing up to 430 litres of load space. The rear gets Volvo’s two-stage integrated booster cushions.

A six-speed automatic is standard, paired with a T5 or diesel D4 engines. The T5 produces 187 kW and 360 Nm, accelerating to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds, with fuel consumption of 8.5 l/100 km and CO2 of 198 g/km. The D4 produces 140 kW and 420 Nm for 0-100 km/h in 8.9 seconds and fuel consumption of 5.7 l/100 km with CO2 of 149 g/km.

The petrol starts at $72,990, the diesel $3000 more.
