Polestar Engineered: Volvo takes on AMG and BMW's M-division

  • 2019 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered Announced With More Power

The Polestar Engineered-badged model will be based on the 400-horsepower plug-in hybrid S60 T8 Twin Engine. The offer is exclusively available on the top-of-the-line T8 Twin Engine and is positioned above Volvo's R Design versions.

However, judging by the recent release of the S60 T8 Polestar Engineered, it might be more accurate to say that "electrification" is the future of Volvo. Polestar Engineered cars will use Brembo monoblock brakes with six-piston calipers, as well as new brake pads with increased heat tolerance.

We'll have to wait until next week to see the all-new South Carolina-built Volvo S60 in its entirety.

Polestar Engineered will also be offered on the new V60 estate and XC60 SUV from next year, available globally in limited numbers via Volvo dealerships and Care by Volvo, the company's premium vehicle subscription service.

With Polestar Engineered, various aspects of the auto like the wheels, brakes, suspension and engine control unit are improved using Polestar's performance engineering expertise. These Polestar Engineered cars all come with badges, black chrome exhaust pipes and golden seatbelts to better distinguish them from lesser-tuned Volvos.

Chassis mods include Polestar Engineered multi-link front- and rear-suspensions, featuring Ohlins shocks with dual-flow valves that allow stiffened springs and shocks with no affect on ride quality. A new strut bar and the adjustable shock absorber design are brought over from the larger Polestar 1 coupe. The software upgrades improve fuel consumption and emissions-neutral performance, and refines the automatic gear selection.

I'll remind readers that the basis of all Volvo powertrains is a feisty little turbocharged inline-four. The Brembo calipers are painted gold, peaking out from new lightweight wheels for the Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered.
