In the market for a new luxury crossover? You could do a lot worse than the Volvo XC60. But if the existing model isn't luxe enough for your taste, Volvo has now announced the availability of a new trim level that amps things up a notch.

Called the Inscription edition, the gussied-up XC60 gives buyers a choice of special interior trims. Four colors of semi-aniline leather – white, black, reddish tan or beige – are on offer, with black or beige trim to coordinate. The headrests are also embroidered and the tread-plates embossed with the Inscription logo, the center armrest is trimmed in top-stitched leather, and the seats are upgraded with electrically adjustable lumbar support.

Charcoal headliner, a special shade of silver paint and unique 20-inch wheels are also on offer for the special edition of the model that Volvo says is its top seller. The model will be unveiled at the Leipzig Motor Show in June (oddly sales start in April), but you can peruse the special touches in the gallery above and check out the press release after the jump for more details. Pricing has not yet been released, but Volvo is promising "worldwide" availability.

Volvo Car Corporation presents the Volvo XC60 Inscription - a unique blend of luxury and dynamic capability

The Volvo XC60 now also becomes available in the exclusive Inscription version - designed around customers who want to add an extra luxurious, personal touch to the dynamic XC capability.

The Inscription buyer can choose between four colours on the seats, fully upholstered in fine semi-aniline quality leather. The XC60 Inscription package also includes several other distinctive interior features and the possibility to spice up the kerb appeal with additional options like the charcoal headliner, special effect paint and 20-inch wheels.

"Many consumers we talk to have very exclusive, individual tastes. The Inscription version is designed around their preferences, by offering the opportunity to give the XC60 a highly personal touch," says Doug Speck, Senior Vice President Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Car Corporation.

The XC60 Inscription customer has a choice of four upholsteries in full semi-aniline leather: Marble White, Toscana Tan, Off-black and Soft Beige. They are accompanied by either an Off-black or Sandstone Beige interior.

The XC60 Inscription package also includes:
- Headrests front with embroidered Inscription logo.
- Centre console armrest in leather with stitching.
- Door panel insert matching colour of the upholstery.
- Tread plates with Inscription logo.
- Electrically adjustable lumbar support.

Extended Inscription offer
The customer can further personalize the XC60 with additional options: Inscription Charcoal headliner, Inscription Electric Silver exterior colour or Inscription Avior 20'' wheels.
"The XC60 was our top-selling model in 2011 with almost 100,000 units delivered to customers all over the globe. The Inscription version makes our offer even stronger. The exclusive details blended with the dynamic XC capability give the XC60 a truly unique aura," says Doug Speck.

The Inscription version can be combined with all the engine options available for the Volvo XC60. It will be shown for the first time at the Leipzig Motor Show in June 2012 and sales start already in April 2012. The XC60 Inscription is available worldwide with local adaptations.

      I wish Volvo would sell real station wagons in the US again. They had the best ones.
      • 3 Years Ago
      Volvo is a bunch of fools for abandoning the US station wagon market. They still make wagons; they just refuse to sell them in the US! I have several friends that refuse to buy SUVs, as they are inferior to cars in almost every way. If you want to buy a mid-sized wagon for less than $40k your choices are amazingly sparce. Subaru Legacy (puke), Acura TSX and maybe a stripped out Audi A4 Avant. That's all you have to work with. My parents have owned 7 Volvo station wagons, dating back to 1983. They are looking to replace their 2008 V70 in December 2012. They will not purchase a Volvo SUV (or anyone else's SUV). Well done Volvo, you just lost a loyal customer of 30 years.

      reddish tan looks sexy!

      Oh, no, stupid 20-inch wheels. When will buyers realize that this big-bling huge wheel look is dated and ghetto?
        • 3 Years Ago
        I know. 14-inch would look so hot on that puppy. More black wall son, more black wall. That's what I say. 4..3..2..1..LOL
