Volvo V60 Cross Country (2019): At A Glance

Ground clearance for the V60 Cross Country is up to 75mm higher than the regular V60, thanks to the specially developed Cross Country chassis and suspension that enhance the car's off-road capability. All-wheel drive is standard on the new V60 Cross Country, as are Hill Descent Control, Electronic Stability Control, Corner Traction Control and a special Off-Road driving mode. 

Like its 60 series and 90 series stablemates, the new V60 Cross Country benefits from Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, safety technology and infotainment system. 

The new V60 Cross Country is also available through Care by Volvo, Volvo Cars' premium service that offers car access rather than ownership via a fixed monthly amount.

What are the best tyres for my Volvo?

The front tyres on my Volvo V60 Cross Country need replacing (currently Michelin X Green Primacy 3 235/50 R18 101W) which are the same as the back tyres. Would you recommend replacing them with another identical set of Michelins so that all four match or would an alternative be acceptable and if so, what would your recommendations be?.
If the car is four-wheel drive it has an automatic 4WD system so all the tyres need to be the same and within 3mm tread depth of each other or it confuses the system that can detect the disparity as slippage. If it's 2WD then this isn't a problem and you can just go ahead and replace like with like. We don't recommend 'cheap tyres', only expensive tyres bought at the lowest possible prices. See how low you can get Michelin X Green Primacy 3 235/50 R18 101W. An alternative is Pirelli Scorpion.
