2016 Volvo Polestar models now in the UAE
Volvo Cars, along with its integral performance brand partner Polestar, announced the arrival of the anticipated S60 Polestar sedan and V60 Polestar wagon to the Middle East as part of its expansion plan. The S60 and V60 Polestar cars are the result of nearly two decades of racing experience and know-how from exploring the limits of Volvo cars, combining everyday performance and safety features in one package.
“We are delighted to introduce a special experience to the passionate drivers in our region whose appetite for stunning cars is vociferous. The Volvo S60 & V60 Polestar models are developed to create what we call optimal drivability”, said Emre Karaer, General Manager of Volvo Car Group Middle East & North Africa.
Reflecting the increased performance of the S60 and V60 Polestar, positive aerodynamic effects have been achieved through subtle, yet efficient modifications based on data from tests in the Volvo wind tunnel. The interiors of the cars have been reworked with new details, materials and Polestar colours with the sole purpose of increasing driver support and control.
The six-cylinder 3.0 litre turbocharged T6 engine has also undergone extensive development with a new twin-scroll turbo and intercooler to produce 350 HP at 5,700 RPM and 500 Nm at 3,000 RPM. The automatic gearbox of six-speed transmission features a new paddle shift system that together with the Polestar developed Haldex four-wheel drive system takes the car from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds and to a limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The performance duo are now available in the GCC with a starting price of USD 62,000 and in the UAE at Al Futtaim Trading Enterprises starting at AED 229, 900. Both models are available in four colours: blue, white, black and silver.
