Volvo has unveiled the new S60 and V60 Polestar production cars. Based on the pre-facelift S60 Polestar for Australia, it sports the latest restyling of Volvo’s mid-size sedan and wagon.
The V60 Polestar, is considered a successor to the racing 850 BTCC. It retains some styling cues of the standard V60 but adds muscular features like aggressive bumpers with splitter at the front, 20 inch Polestar wheels, rear spoiler and diffuser.
The interior brings new details, materials and Polestar colors on the steering wheel, seats and more.
The new S60 and V60 Polestar are powered by the six-cylinder turbocharged T6 engine that produces 345hp (350PS) at 5,700 rpm and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque from 2,800 rpm. The unit is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox featuring a new paddle shift system that sends power to all four wheels through the Polestar developed Haldex four-wheel drive system.
0-100km/h takes 4.9 seconds for both models and top speed is limited to 250km/h. Volvo says the gearbox, four-wheel drive system and traction control system have been recalibrated to provide “an active driving experience and maximum grip in all situations.”
