Thoughts On The Volvo V60 Cross Country
In India, Volvo offers the cross country variants of the S60, V40 and the V90. However, the V60 Cross Country is yet to be confirmed for the Indian market, along with the engines on offer. If launched in India, the V60 Cross Country will directly rival the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-terrain.
