Easily the best car Volvo builds, and that's saying a lot. When it comes to value for the dollar, the "Cross Country" can't be beat. There are certainly more expensive and less expensive options out there, but factoring the whole package, it's easy to see why this is such a popular car among middle-class and more affluent buyers. And there is no snobbery that goes with it, like some of those Bavarian makes. You can't go wrong choosing a Volvo "Cross Country".
Turbo-charged 5 cylinder - good performance with decent fuel economy. Rain Sensor Windshield Wipers - reduce driving distraction. GearTronic Transmission - Automatic convenience with manual control. Dual setting seat warmers - Need I explain?
Everything I would have liked to improve on my 2004, was effected in 2005. My loss, but the cosmetic changes were a positive.
