Volvo is a company known for offering safe, practical cars and the company is expanding its portfolio with the new V60 Cross Country, which will debut at the 2014 LA Auto Show.

Confirmed to be heading to North American showrooms, this car is designed to fit between the XC60 crossover and the V60 Sport Wagon. It features a ride height that is two and a half inches higher than the V60, though still offers low-profile tires on 18 and 19 inch wheels.

The car also sports front and rear skid plates, side scuff plates, fender extenders and bumper integrated exhaust tips, helping to protect some of the more important bits of the car when the drive becomes bumpy and rugged.

Volvo is launching the V60 Cross Country with its 230-hp five-cylinder turbocharged engine, which will be mated to an all-wheel drive system. The company will feature a front-wheel drive base model that uses the company’s Drive-E four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

Expect more details including pricing and availability to come out when the car is officially introduced to the US market at the LA Auto Show.
