I bought a V60 Cross Country in January 2016 for a number of reasons:
1. I wanted a station wagon and not an SUV.
2. I also wanted a vehicle with a stylish design inside and out.
3. Ground clearance (min 7") was very important since I spend several months a year driving in Mexico where most towns and villages have some really high topes (speed bumps).
4. Good performance was necessary to enable easy overtaking of large trucks on minor roads.
5. Comfortable seats were necessary for our long trips.
6. Easy to load luggage space with folding seats.
7. Emergency spare wheel standard.
8. Nav system standard.
9. Numerous safety systems included.
The V60 has AWD, a 250HP 5 cylinder turbo with a 6 speed manumatic transmission. 0-60 mph takes ~ 6.6 secs and ground clearance is ~ 8". So the V60 CC meets all of our requirements and then some. The Birchwood leather seats not only look great but are really supportive and super comfortable. The car handles really well on twisty roads (I used to race sports cars and know handling) and when roads are wet. It can easily cruise at triple digits too if desired. The engine has a nice growl when accelerating but is unobtrusive when cruising.
The rear view camera and front and rear sensors are a great help when parking in tight spots and eliminating (hopefully) minor scrapes. Automatic folding mirrors is a very useful feature when parking on narrow streets too.
The Nav system is easy to program and to our pleasant surprise it includes Mexico! Neither the Volvo website or the dealer was aware of this.
After 11,000 miles I am still learning about some of the features that are thoughtfully included.
Overall I am very pleased with the V60 CC and have had numerous compliments about it. This model is quite rare and I have only seen 3 other CCs in our home city (Austin) where BMWs and Mercs are very common - which is rather nice.
