Volvo’s New S60 to Get the Polestar Engineered Treatment

2019 Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered Announced With More Power

When the new S60 debuts later this month, Volvo will introduce its new Polestar Engineered tuning pack, which brings a host of upgrades to the company's 60-series models.

The S60 T8 Twin Engine Polestar Engineered, as it is called, will sit above the regular T8 Twin Engine variant of the new S60, which is due for reveal next week but was leaked online last month.

Fine-tuning of the engine's control unit increases the S60 electrified T8 Twin Engine output to 415hp* combined, with 670Nm of torque - the standard T8 Twin Engine delivers 400hp* and 640Nm combined. It can be found on the Brembo brake calipers, as well as the seat belts and shock absorbers.

You'll be able to spot a Polestar Engineered auto, thanks to its gold-painted brake calipers set behind unique, lightweight wheels.

White House aide apologizes for 'special place in hell' comment
His apology came days after Trump and Trudeau verbally sparred over the G7 summit in Canada . Trudeau said he was preparing retaliatory measures against the United States.

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. Volvo says the Polestar Engineered tune actually improves fuel consumption and "refines the automatic gear selection".

Polestar may be its own brand now, but it will also continue to act as the performance arm of Volvo for the foreseeable future.

There won't be too much on the outside to tell the Polestar Engineered models apart, besides Polestar emblems, black chrome exhaust pipes, and gold seatbelts and brake callipers - showing off the division's new "hallmark" colour.

I'll remind readers that the basis of all Volvo powertrains is a feisty little turbocharged inline-four. Seatbelt straps are gold, too, and the auto comes with Polestar emblems and black chrome exhaust pipes. They will be available in 2019, with limited availability in Volvo dealerships and through the Care by Volvo subscription service.
