To make the hugely practical V60 even more versatile and therefore more appealing,Volvo has come up with a cross version of it. Aptly named the Volvo V60 Cross Country, the car is a station wagon that is jacked up and fitted with some offroady paraphernalia. But that is apparently enough to make us want one, quite badly.
