THE all-wheel-drive version of Volvo's new V60 estate will be on the road in the new year and priced from Â£38,270.
As such the new V60 Cross Country sits close to the range topping Inscription models and it will be powered by a 190hp, 2.0-litre diesel engine.
Volvo claims it will be good for 55.4mpg with emissions of 135g/km and it comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The V60 Cross Country has a ground clearance increased by more than two inches and an off-road driving mode programmed in to its drive settings as well as hill descent control.
It also features a more rugged body with wheel arch and sill protectors, all finished in a charcoal effect.
The rest of the car's features are similar to that of the standard V60 which went on sale earlier in the year and give the Cross Country 529 litres of boot space extending to a maximum of 1,441 litres with the rear seats folded.
Safety features include Volvo's City Safety system with automatic emergency braking, which is capable of detecting and helping you avoid potential collisions with pedestrians, cyclists and large animals as well as other vehicles on the road ahead.
The V60 also has oncoming collision mitigation which detects vehicles travelling towards it and applies the brakes automatically to limit the severity of any potential impact.
First deliveries of the V60 Cross Country are scheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2019.
