What is Volvo Polestar?
Polestar is Volvo Car Group’s performance road car brand. It was founded by Polestar Racing, today known as Cyan Racing. Polestar’s birth was a result of Cyan Racing’s race engineers’ desire to explore how the technology behind the multiple title-winning success in racing could be applied to the performance of road-going Volvo cars, on all roads and conditions in everyday life. Our engineers at our Cardiff dealership are fully trained to offer Polestar upgrades on most Volvos.
Is the S60 Polestar worth it?
Polestar upgrades are possible on most Volvo cars, but this is the only model along with the XC60 Polestar where you can order a factory-built Polestar engineered Volvo making it a highly desirable choice, especially for those wishing for a rare performance enhanced Volvo.
What is the S60 Polestar?
Body and styling
As you would expect from such a special model the first thing that is noticeable is the unique styling of the body and wheels and the signature Polestar badges on the grill and rear, which gives the car a distinct air of importance and presence. Front and rear grilles painted in high-gloss black and integrated tail pipes in black chrome perfectly complement each other and add to the finishing touches of this special model.
The suspension developed by Polestar for the new S60 T8 Polestar Engineered features shock absorbers created by Swedish suspension experts Öhlins. These use Dual Flow Valve technology. This innovation – unique to Öhlins – means that the car’s suspension responds more quickly to any road-surface imperfections, so you are better connected to the road.
Engine and performance
Four different driving modes cover every driving condition. Power mode gives you maximum performance by getting the most out of the petrol engine and electric motor, while AWD provides even more confidence when road conditions are bad.
For everyday journeys, Hybrid automatically delivers the best mix of petrol and electric power for maximum fuel efficiency, while Pure runs only the electric motor for the luxury of near-silent running with zero tail pipe emissions. An individual mode allows you to tailor the car’s settings specifically for you.
Discreet exterior badges, performance styling and steering wheel gearshift paddles embody a car with a uniquely progressive, sporting character.
Exhilarating performance meets zero-emissions capability, with a T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid powertrain.
Engineered to excel
A new level of dynamic driving, with performance chassis components by Öhlins, performance brakes by Brembo and a strut bar for precise control and steering.
Light. Strong. Beautiful
Lightweight forged alloy wheels with a unique design accentuate the sporty character and reduce unsprung weight, for more responsive handling.
What features does the S60 Polestar have?
The interior of the new S60 T8 Polestar Engineered mixes Scandinavian luxury with a dynamic sporting focus. Contour seats cosset and support in equal measure. A Charcoal colour scheme adds to the focused feel, while Nappa Leather/Open-grid textile upholstery for the seats and a leather-clad sport steering wheel bring a sense of smart luxury. Metal Mesh Aluminium décor panels on the dashboard and tunnel console provide a further touch of sporty style.
Forged Alloy Wheels
Lightweight Polestar Engineered 19-inch forged alloy wheels created exclusively for the new S60 T8 Polestar Engineered add the sporty finishing touch to the striking, muscular presence of the car. The reduced unsprung weight of the forged – rather than cast – rims adds an extra degree of dynamic agility.
