2017 Audi allroad -- The allroad is a similar model to the Cross Country and offers tighter handling.
2017 Subaru Outback -- The larger Outback could feel unwieldy after a spin in the V60 Cross Country, but it's a no-brainer for people who want maximum cargo space: 73.3 cu ft. in total.
2017 Volkswagen Golf Alltrack -- The Alltrack is a new variant of the SportWagen, offering all-wheel drive, 170 hp, 66.5 cu ft. of cargo space and 6.9 inches of ground clearance. It's less expensive than the Volvo as well.
Used Mercedes-Benz E-ClassWagon -- The E-Class wagon is a bit larger than the Volvo, but also a lot nicer. You can find one with all-wheel drive (badged 4Matic) at a great certified pre-owned (CPO) price.
