2017 Volvo S60 Polestar Changes

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.

Our earlier tryst with the Volvo S60 Polestar was a few months ago in the United States where it impressed us with its eager engine and great road characteristics.This time around, the Volvo S60 Polestar is tackling a different kind of a beast in a rather technical racetrack. In all honesty, this marks the first time that we got behind the wheel of a Volvo ‘Polestar’ model and the excitement levels are through the roof. The car in question is the 2017 Volvo S60 Polestar and the racetrack is the famed Kari Motor Speedway at Coimbatore. The city is known for its year-round rainfall and thankfully, the rain gods haven’t decided to play spoilsport yet. We only say that because there was a light drizzle on the day we arrived at Coimbatore.

Just by glancing at the S60 Polestar, you probably wouldn’t suspect that it scores a trifecta for power, performance and agility. Inspired by twenty years of motorsport experience, this powerhouse delivers an engaging and precise driving experience, both on and off the track. From twisting country roads to busy highways, each component of the S60 Polestar is crafted to maximize drivability and control, on all roads, in all conditions, all year round. A case in point is the carefully redesigned aerodynamic exterior it comes with front splitters and a rear spoiler and diffusor for high-speed stability. And it’s available in four distinct colors.

2017 Volvo S60 Polestar Interior

2017 Volvo S60 Polestar Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2017 Volvo S60 Polestar. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

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.

Also new (yay!) for the 2017 Polestars is an eight-speed Geartronic automatic transmission. Not only are the paddle shifters, thankfully, new, but they also treat you to relatively quick gear changes when you pull them, a massive difference between the old Star and the new. 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.

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.

2017 Volvo S60 Polestar Engine

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 2017, the Volvo S60 Polestar gets a brand-new 2-litre engine which unleashes 362 horses and makes 470 Nm of peak torque. Of course, there are a few mechanical changes over the regular S60 sedan. The air intake and the turbo have been made bigger and the engine gets electronically controlled flaps which are activated when you turn the Sport mode on. And that’s where the S60 Polestar turns into a howling beast. The symphony from the exhausts is a pure aural delight. The engine is a gem, no doubt. The low-end performance is blistering and the smallest of throttle inputs are relayed to the tyres without a delay. Going above 3,500 rpm, the story changes a bit. There is a hint of lag, ever so slight but nothing that takes the joy out of ripping the tarmac on Kari. Volvo says that it has changed over 260 parts in the S60 Polestar as compared to the regular S60 sedan.

The S60 packs 345bhp and 369lb ft of torque from its 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine and is paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox, but this set-up; has been replaced by a more efficient 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine and eight-speed gearbox which together help the S60 and V60 get its 362bhp power on the tarmac. Volvo even states that Polestar has made more than 70 modifications and upgrades to the turbocharged 2.0-litre unit.
