The Volvo S60 Polestar
The Volvo S60 Polestar is one sexy Volvo. Yep, you heard right. I just used Volvo and sexy in the same sentence. Who knew?
It's true when you think of Volvo you think of all things safe, family and suburban and even boring, so a Volvo with a semblance of an X-factor naturally doesn't spring to mind. But let me assure you, this baby sure challenges the Volvo brands' status quo as you know it. Big time.
Style and Drive
The body on the S60 Polestar is sexy, sporty and streamlined as opposed to the far gone, old-school, boxy and square Volvo driven by maths teachers, ageing advertising executives and accountants. This car postures to suit celebrities, key influencers and high-flyers who scream success and style with an understated side look at me.
The wheels on our test-drive model were 20 inch alloy with track performance Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres, complete with a sunroof and a spoiler on the boot, all adding to the feeling you are driving one hell of a fast sports car. And in essence, you would be right. This is one hell of a fast sports car.
The engine of the S60 Volvo is a turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine delivering maximum power; the pick up was breath-taking and for this conservative Mum of three, a little too fast and furious.
The steering was perfection; light, but not so light you feel out of control and not so heavy you'd need to develop Madonna-arms to maintain your sense of balance. The drive is confident, smooth and safe with ESC, ABS and Haldex all-wheel-drive system, all delivering a fabulous driving experience.
The cabin is pure luxury with deliciously comfortable heated seats, a leather steering wheel, a banging stereo system (think a 12 speaker Harman Kardon) and an easy to navigate dash that includes a reverse camera and simple speedometer.
The rear of the cabin isn't huge with the focus of space delivered upfront, however the boot is impressive with a good height for launching in an esky or groceries and has an easy to pop door.
Also included are dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, push button start and keyless entry.
The Volvo S60 POLESTAR comes with a five star safety rating and six airbags, stability control; parking sensors and cruise control.
4 stars with 10.2 L/100km
