The Volvo S60 Polestar borrows almost all the underpinnings from the T6 variant of the standard S60 sedan. However, most of those fixtures and fittings are tinkered with to take the Polestar edition into a different league. Once tuned with Polestar trickery, the 2.0-litre petrol engine belts out 367PS of power and 467Nm of torque. That’s 61PS/67Nm more than the standard car. To ensure most of the available grunt is utilised for proper propulsion. Volvo’s all-wheel-drive tech takes care of the power-to-tarmac equation. The S60 Polestar completes the naught to 100kmph sprint in 4.7 seconds. And can reach an electronically-limited top speed of 250kmph.
Swedish carmaker Volvo will launch the Volvo S60 Polestar in India tomorrow on dated 14 Apr, 2017. It is slated to become the first ever Volvo with development from Polestar that will be sold in the country. For the uninitiated, Polestar is Volvo’s own in-house tuning division that has championed in injecting a whole lot of excitement in the sensible Swedish wagons. In other words, Volvo’s Polestar is what the AMG and M-division are for Mercedes-Benz and BMW respectively.
