2020 Volvo V60 Cross Nation First Drive – 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Nation

As scheduling would settle for it, the 2020 Volvo V60 Cross Nation concluded up overlapping for a day with the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 that was forward featured actuality on Baggage Evaluation Friday. It supplied a absolute befalling to evaluation a accepted acumen amid wagonists like myself and abounding added automotive reviewers, {that a} wagon is added utilized than all these bunched crossovers which are awfully added widespread. Admittedly, the GLC is among the abate bunched SUVs, however nonetheless, I might calmly see addition allotment amid these analogously priced affluence autos. I apperceive I might truly cross-shop them.

Now, the 2020 V60 is decidedly past than the about hatchback-like archetypal it replaces, abacus four inches of wheelbase and 6 inches of all-embracing size. In accordance with the specs, it has 23.2 cubic-feet of amplitude abaft its aloft aback seat. We already apperceive the GLC’s lodging quantity is ambiguous at 19.four cu-ft, however the V60’s is about higher. To place it alfresco of this particular comparability, 23.2 cubic-feet could be larger than finest auto fashions just like the the BMW X1 and Volvo XC40, however abate than Volvo’s XC60 and abounding added bunched SUVs. 

Right here is the amplitude you get. Already you’ll be able to see that its lengthy, boxier roof ought to accomplish for a added accessible amplitude than the chopped rooflines of abounding crossovers.

The V60’s burden awning can speed up up the D colonnade for fast entry, considerable prefer it does in abounding autos, together with aftermost week’s Subaru Outback. 

You moreover might agenda that irregular define on the block attic …

It is a in a position pop-up burden allotment for befitting grocery accoutrements or added gadgets from aerial everywhere in the burden space. It is start in added Volvo wagons and SUVs as nicely.

Now, let’s get to the bags. As persistently I am going to alpha with the burden awning in place, and moreover as persistently I take advantage of two midsize curler accoutrements that will cost to be arrested in on the airport (26 inches lengthy, 16 large, 11 deep), two roll-aboard accoutrements that aloof nearly match within the aerial (24L x 15W x 10D), and one abate roll-aboard that matches calmly (23L x 15W x 10D). I moreover accommodate my spouse’s adorned transient bag aloof to bandbox issues up a bit (21L x 12W x 12D).

So, just like the GLC, mixture didn’t match. At atomic the V60 alone larboard the smallest, adorned bag out admitting the GLC larboard one of many medium-sized accoutrements behind. That is achievement No. 1 for the wagon.

OK, let’s abolish the burden cowl.

OK, actuality we go, mixture match with allowance to spare. I might alike match a brace of additional advantage accoutrements whereas nonetheless development rear visibility.

The GLC, in contrast, might’ve match that little atramentous bag up there, but it surely would not settle for been abysmal considerable to soak up each the adorned bag and that dejected duffel. Here is the GLC for comparability.

So it’s, wagon achievement No. 2. The V60 Cross Nation can truly authority a bit added than a bunched SUV, alike if the SUV in catechism is among the abate examples. (I have not achieved this evaluation with abounding added bunched SUVs, however the Mazda CX-5 is interesting abutting to it.)

Now, how does it analyze to added wagons? Effectively, the perfect accepted one, the Outback, truly obliterates it. That is no shock, because it’s considerable bigger. 

Nonetheless, what in case you at present personal a 2013 Audi Allroad and are apprehensive how the V60 Cross Nation means examine? Humorous it is best to ask, I aloof occurred to just accept a 2013 Allroad helpful. What are the chances?!

The specs say the 2013 Allroad (aka the A4 Avant afore then) has 27.6 cubic-feet of amplitude abaft the aback seat, which company it needs to be appreciably larger than the V60. It finest completely isn’t. I am not abiding if Audi’s altitude association was inflating its lodging or Volvo’s is not giving the V60 considerable credit score, however both method, somebody’s numbers are misleading.

The little atramentous bag would not match within the Allroad and it is MUCH more durable to get mixture in. In contrast to within the V60, the liftgate nearly closed. 

Do you have to be apprehensive concerning the accepted Allroad, the numbers say it acquired abate for its new technology, so booty from that what you’ll accustomed the aloft discovering.

Now, let’s axis to burden options. See this little bung up actuality within the V60?

This lets you defended and bung in a “Metal Protecting Grille” to build up canine safe, or aback loading the burden breadth to the roof with baggage. It prevents both from aerial superior within the accident of a abrupt cease. Nonetheless, that aboideau cost be bought alone and bodily eliminated. 

The Allroad, as able-bodied as some added wagons, got here with a roll-out awning that extends from a further reel anchored abaft the burden awning reel. It might not be as defended because the metallic grate, but it surely moreover calmly disappears aback not wanted. I can not acquaint you the way advantageous a affection that is. We have acclimated it aback alteration canine, however aback I’ve naked to quantity a bag or two aloft the bench aback line, it is achieved its job of stopping them from aerial ahead. It is a affection that I ambition added SUVs got here with. At atomic the V60 contains the plugs for the aftermarket aboideau unit. 

So, does this wagon authority added than bunched SUVs? Effectively, it will possibly, but it surely’s moreover hardly an Outback.
