Contrary to popular belief, not everyone prefers SUVs—count us among that shrinking pool of drivers—and for those people the 2022 Volvo V60 and V60 Cross Country wagons are attractive, practical alternatives. The Cross Country
attempts to straddle the line between wagons and crossovers with its tasteful plastic cladding and a slightly taller ride height. Still, wagon enthusiasts are more likely to drool over the sporty Recharge T8 Polestar model
that boasts a plug-in-hybrid powertrain with 415 horsepower and up to 22 miles of electric driving range. Aside from the Subaru Outback, it appears the station wagon body style exists merely in the luxury realm, with rivals
including the Audi A4 Allroad, the Mercedes-Benz E-class All-Terrain, and Volvo’s larger V90 Cross Country.
