Auto Trader Verdict:
The Volvo S60 Cross Country is an intriguing, if rather confusing proposition. There aren’t really any direct rivals in terms of a jacked-up saloon car, but probably with good reason. It’s not a bad car, with a clean engine and comfortable ride, but it is compromised, especially in terms of practicality and a high list price. It should prove pretty reasonable to run and you’ll certainly stand out from the crowd, but if you want a sleeker alternative to an SUV, then there are better options out there.
