We haven't yet seen the new S60 saloon, but that hasn't stopped Volvo already announcing a new range of "Polestar Engineered" upgrades for its compact executive challenger.
The difference here is that Polestar is focused on "electrification" and the first of the new-generation "Polestar Engineered" products will be the T8 version of the third-generation S60 sedan that's due to be revealed in a week from now. In addition, Brembo brake calipers are now fitted, the pads are upgraded and the wheels are lighter.
The announcement comes shortly before the Swedish automaker is expected to unveil its new S60 sedan, which will be built in Charleston, South Carolina.
Polestar Engineered, developed by Volvo Cars' electric performance arm Polestar, is a complete offer, applying Polestar's performance engineering expertise to the car's wheels, brakes, suspension and engine control unit. Tweaks to the latter will hike the peak outputs of the S60's 2,0-litre electrified T8 Twin Engine to 309 kW and 670 N.m, with Volvo furthermore claiming an improvement in fuel consumption. The ECU also recalibrates the eight-speed automatic transmission. Top-of-the-line Brembo monoblock six-pot calibers, painted in an eye-catching gold, now handle the braking duties, exclusive Ohlins shocks upgrade the suspension and the sway bar from the upcoming Polestar 1 makes body roll all but non-existent. A new strut bar and the adjustable shock absorber design are brought over from the larger Polestar 1 coupe. Polestar emblems, black-chrome tailpipes and gold-coloured seat belts also serve to identify these flagship models.
Henrik Green, senior vice-president of research and development at Volvo, said that the parts have been "fine-tuned to work together, delivering a responsive and exciting driver's car".
