Volvo Auto India has launched the S60 Polestar in India at an introductory price tag of Rs 52.5 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The S60 Polestar is the fastest car ever made by the Swedish automaker and only 30 out of 1500 models made will make their way to India. How fast? It can go from 0-100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds.
This is possible due to the 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. The S60 Polestar gets a host of updates for aerodynamic advantage like the front corner splitters, rear spoiler and a diffuser at the back. That's not it, the car weighs in at 1756 kilos (kerb) and power is sent to all four wheels. When it comes to stopping, though, Volvo has fitted Brembo 6-piston brake callipers at the front. Available in three colours - Rebel Blue, Onyx Black and Ice White, the S60 Polestar also gets electro-assisted power steering.
In terms of exterior design, the car gets beautiful 20-inch lightweight rim. Being a Volvo, there is almost every safety feature present in the car that you can think of. This includes the likes of Radar-based safety features, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, park pilot assist, blind spot detection. To put it into perspective, the sedan has got a 5-star NCAP safety rating.
