According to Volvo, S60 models that receive the Polestar Engineered treatment are positioned above its R-Design versions. "This strategy is firmly grounded in our shared belief in an electric future for the auto industry", said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO at Volvo Cars. But don't forget, Polestar isn't a new thing - prior to its spinoff as a standalone brand, the Swedish tuning arm has been responsible for some of the most entertaining Volvo cars to date. Called Polestar Engineered, and designed specifically for Volvo's new 60 series T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrids, the new parts are essentially Gothenburg's answer to BMW's M-Sport line or Mercedes' AMG-line.
Fine-tuning of the engine's control unit increases the S60 electrified T8 Twin Engine output to 415hp* combined, with 670Nm of torque - the standard T8 Twin Engine delivers 400hp* and 640Nm combined.
The gearbox and brakes get some Polestar tinkering too, as does the multi-link front and rear suspension, which also gets Öhlins adjustable shock absorbers as well as a strut bar design inherited from the Polestar 1 high-performance coupé.
We'll have to wait until next week to see the all-new South Carolina-built Volvo S60 in its entirety. Instead there will be upgrades offered under the Polestar Engineered label.
That all sounds good, except for gold being the new hallmark color. The Brembo calipers are painted gold, peaking out from new lightweight wheels for the Volvo S60Polestar Engineered. Polestar emblems, black-chrome tailpipes and gold-coloured seat belts also serve to identify these flagship models.
I'll remind readers that the basis of all Volvo powertrains is a feisty little turbocharged inline-four. "All components have been fine-tuned to work together, delivering a responsive and exciting drivers' vehicle".
