The V60 Cross Country will be available to order in the first quarter of next year, with production getting under way in May and first customer deliveries expected in June.
The car's ride height has been raised by 65mm over the V60 on which it is based. It also has high-profile tyres, front and rear skid plates, side scuff plates, bumper extenders and lower body cladding.
A diesel-only engine line-up includes a base D3 unit and a new 179bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder D4 turbodiesel with either front or all-wheel drive.
Volvo says the new model offers "a sporty, connected yet comfortable driving experience with the freedom to explore new horizons."
