Volvo India has launched a high performance version of the S60 in India. The Volvo S60 Polestar is priced at Rs 52.5 lakh which sounds enticing especially for a car that can do 0-100 kph in 4.5 sec.
So what makes the S60 Polestar so quick? Power comes from a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. That doesn’t sound exciting. However, it makes 367 hp and 470 Nm of torque. All-wheel drive traction aides the S60 Polestar get off the line via an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
If you compare it with the normal S60 sedan, the Polestar version gets a new body kit that adds a sporty touch. The massive 20-inch alloy wheels further add to the aggressive look.
Underneath, Volvo has tweaked the suspension and given it better brakes. The cabin too has a sporty feel to it with carbon fiber inserts and sports seats.
With the launch of the S60 Polestar, Volvo has discontinued with T6 petrol version of the S60.
