- The Volvo S60 Polestar is the performance version based on the S60 T6
- This will be the third Volvo S60 based model to be available in India
- The S60 Polestar rivals the Mercedes-AMG C43, BMW M3, Audi S5
Based on the standard Volvo S60, the Polestar version takes the top-of-the-line T6 version and pushes the limits for better performance attributes. Visually, the performance sedan looks similar to the standard version, but gets the more likeable R-Design treatment with larger 20-inch alloy wheels and fatter tyres.
The bigger changes though are under the hood with the Volvo S60 Polestar using a 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol motor, which churns out 362 bhp of power and 470 Nm of torque and comes with electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive as standard. The motor comes paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Compared to the standard T6 variant, the motor makes 60 bhp and 67 Nm of additional power and torque. The S60 Polestar can hit the 0-100 kmph in 4.7 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 kmph.
The interior remains largely the same as well and comes loaded with safety tech much like the standard version. So you get a host airbags and safety assist systems including the Volvo City Safety feature that automatically applies brakes within city limits at speeds lower than 50 kmph in case of an impending collision. The suspension has been tuned as well and made 80 per cent stiffer to handle the additional power output.
In terms of competition, the Volvo S60 Polestar will be competing with the likes of the Mercedes-AMG C43, BMW M3 and the Audi S5 in the segment. However, unlike its German rivals, the performance sedan will retail at a much lower price tag. Expect the Volvo S60 Polestar to be priced in the vicinity of Rs. 60-65 lakh (ex-showroom), which makes it more attainable by a healthy margin.
