Volvo has introduced its first performance-oriented version of the S60 sedan, the S60 Polestar in India priced at Rs 52.5 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. Polestar is Volvo's in-house tuning division and a performance sub-brand of the Swedish carmaker. The price of the new offering from the manufacturer is introductory.

Powering the performance-oriented sedan is a 2.0 litre, four-cylinder petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 367 hp and churns out a peak torque of 470 Nm. This engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and this powertrain sends power to all wheels. The 2.0 litre engine is the same as the one used in the standard S60, however, in the S60 Polestar, better performance figures are achieved thanks to a turbocharger and a supercharger. Available only in one variant, 100 kmph is achieved from standstill in 4.7 seconds and the top speed is limited to 250 kmph.
