Failure to view: the Volvo S60 Cross Country does not sell and leave the United Kingdom

The rush of cars type SUV or Crossover is bringing to the market to see all types of creations, and best of all is that all of those experiments end in success, or better said almost all. The Volvo S60 Cross Country was the last great experiment of Volvo during 2015, a saloon of lofty height and aesthetics to the countryside to offer something different in the market. What the problem? The Volvo S60 Cross Country is not for sale, and this is why Volvo announces the withdrawn of this model in the Uk, and may be the first of many.

So is the Volvo S60 Cross Country, the only midsize crossover that is sold in Spain

As we have already mentioned, the fever of the automotive sector by the car body type SUV or Crossover seems to know no boundaries, however, today, we’re at the first hint that not everything is worth at the time of the offering of vehicles todocamino, even when parts of a premium saloon as the Volvo S60. Already ahead of my partner David Villarreal in his analysis on the risky launch of the Volvo S60 Cross Country, the life of this crossover would be fleeting and the United Kingdom has been the first market where Volvo has announced the recall of the Volvo S60 Cross Country after accumulating 34 units sold in a year. As a counterpoint, the Volvo V60 Cross Country has obtained good data with the sales of 478 units.

In these figures, Volvo has communicated the cessation of the marketing of this model, apostillando that yes, the Volvo S60 Cross Country was never a model designed for the british market. These statements make us think that the midsize crossover may have been affected by the british tastes, so we asked what has happened in a market like Spain, where it also markets the Volvo S60 Cross Country.

4 alternatives, that every time you sell less, and you should evaluate before buying an SUV

In the year so far, 2016, in Spain they have only sold 2 Volvo S60 Cross Country by the 152 Volvo V60 Cross Country. The focus of the model, that, roughly, is little more than a saloon with 65mm more height to the ground, attached to a starting price raised from 42.880 euros, it seems that have done a disservice to this particular crossover set at a commercial level. To all this one should add the factor internal competition, and is the Volvo V60 Cross Country is a vehicle of identical approach, but that offers the plus of design and space thanks to the use of the body-family of the Volvo V60.
