When it comes to performance sedans in India then the first cars that may come to your mind will most probably be a from a German brand like BMW, Mercedes-Benz or Audi. But there is a new entrant to this party in the form of the Volvo S60 Polestar which was introduced at a lucrative price tag of Rs 52.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Lucrative because a similar spec car will cost you somewhere upwards of Rs 70 lakh – making it possibly the go-to performance sedan in India.

It is powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that is both supercharged and turbocharged and comes mated to an 8-speed Geartronic automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The engine delivers 376 horsepower and 470 Nm torque.

Given the exclusivity and the limited production numbers of the Polestar, only 30 of them will make their way to India. We take it for a spin at the Kari Motor race track in Coimbatore to find out whether Volvo has cut corners to attain this price tag or is it really as good as it seems on paper.

Watch the video below to find out.
