Volvo S60 Polestar Price in India starts at Rs. 52.50 lakh
Volvo Cars India has launched the S60 Polestar in India at a price of Rs. 52.50 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The S60 Polestar is a halo product and only 30 units will be sold in India this year. Volvo had earlier announced a limited production run of just 1,500 units globally for the year 2017.
The S60 Polestar is based on the regular model’s T6 trim level. It comes with some noteworthy cosmetic tweaks, including a new electric blue paint scheme, front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and a prominent spoiler mounted on to the boot lid. The car also comes with large 20-inch alloy wheels with low profile rubber.
On the inside, the S60 Polestar borrows its dashboard layout from the regular model, though the steering wheel and the gear lever are new units and come with the Polestar logo embossed in them. The front two seats are also new racing seats that are wrapped in leather upholstery with contrasting blue stitching. The Polestar logo can also be found on the headrests.
But the most important part of the S60 Polestar is under its hood. This powerful sedan comes with a menacing 2.0-litre petrol engine that comes with turbocharging as well as supercharging. This dual force-injected power plant can develop 362 BHP and 470 Nm of peak torque, all of which is delivered to the car’s four wheels through an all-wheel drive system. Transmission duties are handled by an 8-speed autobox with paddle shifter for aggressive gearshifts, even when you are deep into a corner.
