Volvo weighing-up V40/XC60 one to receive in its next line-up the Polestar treatment
|   Thursday, September 04, 2014
From the current front runners XC60 and V40 models, Volvo is weighing-up which one to pick for Polestar treatment that could be in its next line-up. However, with V60 estate and S60 saloon consisting turbocharged petrol engine, this new model of Polestar will be get added with these all-wheel drive.

Further, the model which would receive the Polestar treatment will be having a four-cylinder high powered engine. According to Derek Crabb the boss of Volvo's global powertrain; the report which says V40 hot hatch is been already signed off is not the actual case it seems.


He says, "Not all individual market will go with same suggesting which one to pick, some may go with asking for V40 or XC60 and may also for S60. So the decision cannot be taken commercially, it has to be done rationalizing it."

The polestar S60 and V60 in the car production form are pretty rapid and both consists of 3.0 liter 6-cylinder turbo T6 produces from 2,800rpm the 350bhp and 369lb/ft of torque. Also hits up-to limited 155mph and standard 0-62mph in just 4.9 seconds and top speed of 17.7 seconds for 0-124mph.

The outer surface of Volvo consists of wind tunnel used data testing to aid V60 and S60 slip through air. Other than that, to optimize and raise downforce of the airflow under car a diffuser, front splitter and rear spoiler is been fitted to get an aid through it.

Currently S60 and V60 are the only two production Polestar models Volvo has and so Volvo is up-to build 2.0 liter 4-cylinder forced induction engine as sooner in year 2015 V40/XC60 Polestar.

Volvo V40 has a unique outer body adornment colour and claims fuel use of 5.2 liter/100km and its front drive wheel have auto 6-speed transmission gearbox. Whereas, Volvo XC60 establishes 2.4 liter diesel D5 and produces 205bhp with developing 420Nm torque.

According to Crabb, in terms of engine power an upward step will be taken with Drive-E for four cylinder high performance engine which is also been meant to be fitted during 2016 scheduled to the Polestar S60 and V60. Other than that, as like Mercedes-Benz offered for its A45 AMG a 355bhp, it seems that this new model Polestar will not be less than that.

However, Crabb says that this new four cylinder model will not let down in terms of power for those customers who were buying car today with six cylinder 329bhp producing engine. Thus, a Polestar will be coming up with a high performance new four cylinder engine in the market.

Crabb unveils that this year, the Volvo seems to expect the sale on S60 and from V60 to be 750 from the cars been marketed also hopes it to climb up-to 1250/annum within few years. This new Polestar model will not have less than any other brand's 3.0 liter recent and potent inline-six turbocharged engine as like S60/V60 Polestar. However, there is much possibility that this 4-cylinder engine will match with those of outgoing 6-cylinders.
