2017 Volvo S60 Polestar Review

Volvo is set to venture into the world of making performance-oriented automobiles. The automaker is following the example of BMW with their M brand and Mercedes with AMG. Volvo‘s acquisition of Polestar, a company that produces performance parts for Volvo cars indicates the automakers intention. Except for the TWR Volvo 850 BTCC racer, the Volvo S60 Polestar sedan and its twin V60 polestar hatch are the quickest production cars from the Swedish outfit.

However, in a few years time, Volvo wants to expand its lineup of performance models. Back to the 2017 Volvo S60 Polestar, the automaker has improved the model along with its wagon sister, the V60 to offer more juice and hence more speed.

2017 Volvo S60 Polestar Specs

Volvo has not disclosed much about the sedan’s interior styling. However, from the information available I can tell the new cabin’s charcoal trim enhanced by Alcanatara and Nubuck trims. The sport seats are deeply bolstered for more support. The seats also feature Polestar graphics that indicate that this is not your regular S60.

Other features include a sport steering wheel and a virtual instrument cluster which has a blue background. Polestar graphic touches extend to the door panels, shifter knob and carpets. The cabin also features a carbon fiber center stack and rubber-studded aluminum footrests and pedals.

The new eight-speed feeds a BorgWarner Haldex all-wheel-drive system that features a biased torque split of 40/60 front to rear. Combined with sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport 245/35ZR20 tires, Volvo is claiming that the S60 can hit 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds and that the V60 can do the same in 4.5 seconds. No word on the quarter mile, but both Polestars are limited to a top speed of 155 mph. Braking duty is handled by Brembo 14.6-inch discs up front, 11.9-inch discs out back. The new wheels, sized 20 by 8 inches, sport a little Swedish Racing Green Polestar square. (The color’s actually called Rebel Blue Swedish Racing Green’s a joke.) Suspension changes feature 80 percent stiffer springs, 15 percent stiffer anti-roll bars, and new bushings. The body gets a little splitter below the nose and both a spoiler and diffuser in the rear. That splitter actually provides 46 pounds of downforce.

For entertainment, the performance sedan features an updated version of the Harman Kardon Sensus Connect Premium audio system. I also believe the vehicle will feature an up-to-date-infotainment screen with a large screen, latest connectivity features and a good package of driving aids. We will update you with more information when more information becomes available.

The exterior is almost identical to the standard S60 sedan. However, the automaker has made some subtle visual changes to the performance sedan to set it apart from the standard S60.  It is identical to the concept Volvo showcased back in 2012 at the Los Angeles Auto show.

At the front, the performance sedan features a pronounced grille compared to the standard model. The grille comes with Volvo’s logo at the center. The sedan’s headlights have been integrated with new LED DRLs. Below the grille and close to the lower bumper, are bigger air vents to allow more cooling air to the engine. At the rear, the performance sedan is differentiated by a pair of elegant Boomerang shaped LED taillights. The rear is also enhanced by dual-exhaust tips, one on each side. The performance sedan also gets a set of 20-inch light alloy wheels.

The vehicle is based on a new chassis adopted from the Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 which has helped the car cut 44 pounds from its curb weight compared to the predecessor model.

2017 Volvo S60 Polestar Engine

New for the 2017 model year, Volvo has hooked up the S60 polestar with a new drive-train. The automaker has replaced the previous turbocharged 3.0 L V-6 with a 2.0 L, 4-cylinder engine. The new engine has pumped 27 extra horses to the setup. The engine pumps out 367 hp and 346 lb-ft of torque.

This excellent performance is courtesy of a bigger turbocharger, a supercharger, a bigger air intake system as well as new conrods and camshafts. The power is channeled to a BorgWarner four-wheel drive system via an 8-speed Geartronic automatic transmission system.

For those not updated on Volvo lingo, Drive-E refers to Volvo’s supercharged and turbocharged, 2.0-liter inline-four. The same engine as found in our 2016 SUV of the Year winner, the Volvo XC90 T6. Only for Polestar duty it’s been souped up a touch with a new turbo, connecting rods, camshaft, fuel pump, and fuel filter, plus a larger air intake along with 3-inch “full-flow” exhaust systems that raise power from 345 to 362 horsepower. Torque is actually down a touch from 369 to 347 lb-ft, but seeing as how the cars are now 44 pounds lighter than before, you won’t miss the torque. It does, however, go to illustrate that even with a super- and turbocharger, there’s no replacement for the old I-6’s 3.0 liters’ worth of displacement.

Thanks to a modified 2.0-liter Drive-E T6 engine with a turbocharger and a supercharger bolted on, the compact executive models boast 367 horsepower and 346 lb-ft (470 Nm) of torque. In terms of acceleration, the S60 Polestar hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.7 seconds. The V60 Polestar is 0.1 seconds slower. Talk among yourselves, but that’s a serious bragging right.

To put it into perspective, the Ford Focus RS hot hatchback gets to 62 mph (100 km/h) in the same span of time, as does the 2017 Audi S4. The Mercedes-Benz C 450 AMG 4Matic sedan, on the other hand, is a little slower at 4.9 seconds, despite the fact that is has a 3.0-liter biturbo V6 with 367 horsepower on tap.

The increased power coupled with a new platform and reduced curb weight combine to help the Polestar become very fast. The car can now hit 60 mph from standstill in 4.7 seconds, 0.2 seconds better than the outgoing model. The S60 has a top speed of 155 mph. In terms of fuel economy, Volvo estimates that the model will be more frugal. It is estimated to return 30.2 mpg in combined drives which is quite impressive.
