Volvo is aggressively wooing the affluent Indian car buyers by launching stunning cars at mouth watering prices. The latest being the striking new S60 Cross Country which the Swedish car maker launched on 11th March in Mumbai. The newly launched cross country will cater to those customers who aspire for the comfort and opulence of a luxury sedan while craving for boldness and ruggedness to occasionally venture on to dusty paths and flooded roads.
Tom von Bonsdorff, Managing Director, Volvo Auto India said “Nothing could be more appropriate for India than a Cross Country Sedan, yes the wait is finally over. Our customers want their cars to glide through the rough roads but had to compromise on the rear seat comfort of a sedan. Our latest launch, S60 Cross Country addresses both these in a unique blend of sporty ruggedness. We have included all the capability driven features standard offering a unique ‘All Weather, All Road’ experience.”
The Cross Country gets a sporty sedan shape and dynamic design with typical S60 swooping roofline to subtle Cross Country design cues. It looks sporty, unconventional with an adventurous edge to the sedan concept. The honeycomb grille, dual exhaust tail pipes, 18 inch alloys along with increased ride height gives it a reassuringly confident stance. The piano black deco on the sides and wing mirror casing adds to the classy feel of the vehicle.
The car’s interior is graced with elegant Scandinavian design cues with generous use of rich wood and leather. It gets uncluttered and easy to use controls, piano black deco option, leather gear knob and a frameless inner rear-view mirror. The S60 also features sport seats with option of single or dual-tone leather and contrast stitching.
