Volvo's always been known in the U.S. for its safe, boxy wagons. Even though SUVs have long accounted for most of the brandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sales, the Volvo wagon is iconic.
For good reason, too. If you want a comfortable, luxury wagon for the whole family, Volvo's the best game in town.
And after spending a week in the company's lifted, all-wheel-drive V60 Cross Country, it's easy to recommend the Swedish wagon as a slick and stylish crossover alternative.
The most important thing to know is that this gorgeous and impeccably appointed wagon, tested with just about every option, stickers for $56,990. A fair bit of cash, but thousands cheaper than the latest Mercedes C-Class or BMW 330i we tested. This despite offering similar equipment, similar power, wagon practicality, and a truly beautiful interior. Compared to similarly equipped and appointed SUVs, like a well-optioned Mercedes GLC or Audi Q5, the Volvo fares even better.
And it doesn't feel anything like the budget pick. The exterior design "which mostly matches every other Volvo " still looks refined and modern. The supple cream leather, linear lime matte wood inlays, diamond-cut controls and premium aluminum accents work together perfectly. It's not a new look for Volvo, but the interior still feels more cohesive and impressive than just about any other competitors.
Plus, you get the superb Bowers & Wilkins stereo system and Volvo's Pilot Assist semi-autonomous system. Volvo continues to knock it out of the park with comfort, too, delivering some of the most consistently comfortable seats for long journeys. Supple suspension and a relaxed driving demeanor help, too.
