Volvo S60 Polestar: Competition check

Volvo S60 Polestar: Competition check

Volvo has introduced the Polestar in India and the first one of the crazy fast Swedes is the S60 Polestar. Volvo’s new cars and their pricing have been spot on and at 52.5 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi, the S60 Polestar is a value proposition that is hard to put aside. But before we make the decision, you have to factor in the competition.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG or the Audi S4 are practically soul-brothers for the S60 Polestar. The CLA 45 AMG gets a 2.0-litre 350 bhp turbocharged petrol engine with a dual clutch gearbox and an all-wheel drivetrain, just like the Volvo S60 Polestar. Both are four-door sedans but the Volvo has a roomier cabin. While the CLA has a fluid teardrop design with evocative lines, the Volvo S60 is rather undramatic with its rather classic sedan lines. But if you get one in the Polestar blue, you might have to pray in order to go unnoticed. Sadly, the Audi S4 is not sold in India any more.

Apart from the 240bhp Jaguar XE, none of the luxury sedans like the BMW 3 Series or the Audi A4 come in with real performance. Mercedes has the C43 AMG but at more than Rs 75 lakh, ex-showroom, it becomes too expensive. So If you are looking for a performance luxury sedan that can double up as your daily driver and seat five comfortably, the Volvo S60 Polestar turns out to be your only option.
