For Immediate Release
Cross Country (New Model for 2001)
ROCKLEIGH, NJ -- September 1, 2000 -- Completely redesigned from it's 2000 counterpart. Built on Volvo's P2 platform (same as the S80 and S60), it is about 60% stiffer than previous wagons. This accounts for a much higher level of comfort, isolating from road noise, better handling and much more 'solid iron block' feel. The Cross Country accounts for roughly 50% of all Volvo wagon sales.
The following features, both interior and exterior, enhance the distinctiveness of the Cross Country from the V70. Their inclusion results in a rugged, athletic vehicle - one that blends the benefits of an SUV without giving up the comforts and versatility of a traditional wagon.
