A sedan is a great pick for drivers in the greater Cleveland area who frequently traverse narrow and crowded city streets. What about when a bout of snow hits the Lakewood area? That's why Montrose Volvo of Cleveland wrote this 2018 Volvo S60 Cross Country review.

Not only is this sedan nimble and agile, it also has the ground clearance, and some of the handling capabilities you'd often expect from an everyday SUV, making it a great pick for Elyria drivers. Plus, it has some great technology and convenience features to get excited about. 

Volvo S60 Cross Country Engine Specs and Handling

Drivers who want an engine that boosts power without sacrificing efficiency will like the 2.0L turbocharged engine under the hood of the S60 Cross Country. This engine generates 240 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, while still achieving an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 22 MPG city and 30 MPG highway.1

This sedan also comes standard with all-wheel drive (AWD) for added traction when tackling snowy roadways or off-road terrain. A ground clearance of 7.9 inches also sets you well above the ground, so you can hit the trail with ease. A higher driver's seat position also provides better visibility in traffic or when taking on off-road obstacles. 

S60 Cross Country Driver-Assist Technology

When you're going with the flow of traffic, you'll have several driver-assist features on your side to help you reach your destination safely. 

In the city, for example, standard Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake works to help you avoid unseen hazards. With this system, sensors and cameras identify smaller obstacles, like a person on-foot or two wheels, and issues an audible warning or automatically hits the brakes to help you avoid or lessen a potential impact. 

The Volvo S60 Cross Country also includes a standard Distance Alert feature that lets you know if you're following too closely to the car in front of you to allow for safe stopping. 

On the highway, a standard Driver Alert Control monitors your technique for progressively more erratic driving and suggests it may be time to take a break from behind the wheel.

Luxury and Convenience Features

If you want to feel like you're riding in the lap of luxury when you're in the driver's seat, you'll like the many luxury and convenience features that come standard on the Cross Country trim of the Volvo S60.

This sedan is plenty spacious, with almost 40 inches of driver headroom and 41.9 inches of driver legroom. However, if you want to open up the space even more, you can let the sunshine and fresh air in with the standard Power Glass Moon Roof.

You can also get yourself comfortable by finding the perfect position, with the 8-way driver's seat with lumbar support for reducing fatigue. There are also three memory positions, so you don't have to readjust your seat after letting a friend or family borrow the car. 

As you approach another motorist on the highway at night, you'll have the extra convenience of standard Active High Beams, as well, which automatically toggle the high beams off when they sense another moving towards you.
