Available to order now, with customer deliveries starting before the end of 2019, the S60 (£56,105) V60 (£57,205) and XC60 (£64,545) Polestar Engineered models are designed as ‘halo’ variants of their respective ranges, thanks to a variety of new hardware and revisions aimed at improving the driving experience.
All three are based on the top-spec T8 plug-in hybrid models. The 2.0-litre petrol engine receives a 15bhp upgrade, and this combined with the electric motor means an overall system output of 399bhp.
That’s enough to make the S60 Polestar Engineered the fastest-accelerating Volvo yet, with a 0-62mph time of 4.4sec - a 0.2sec improvement on the standard S60 T8. It’s still capable of just over 27 miles of electric-only driving and a WLTP combined fuel economy figure of 104.5mpg. The V60's 0-62mph time is trimmed to 4.6sec, while the XC60 can complete the sprint in 5.4sec.
