2014 Volvo S60 T6 R-Design Polestar - WR TV POV Test Drive
Today we set our sights on this Swedish sports sedan from a brand that's
perhaps been best known for its focus on safety in the past, but now looks
to be making a run at nabbing some sales away from the performance
divisions of automakers like Mercedes Benz and BMW.
Slotted between the standard S60 T6 and the hot-blooded, limited production
S60 Polestar, the S60 T6 R-Design sports a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder motor that
outputs 325 horsepower and 354lb-ft of
torque, which routes the power to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic
transmission. This combination gets the S60 T6 R-Design to 60mph from a
standstill in five seconds flat.
The S60 T6 R-Design also gets uprated suspension bits including stiffer
bushings, beefier sway bars and monotube dampers, and it rides half an inch
lower than the standard S60. Inside, special R-Design sport seats, aluminum
inlays and sport pedals round out the package.
For the best video experience, we encourage you to wear headphones or
earbuds. The audio in this video was recorded with in-ear binaural
microphones. Because these microphones record sound from inside the ear,
playing the sound through headphones gives the sensation of 3D sound. All
of this translates to a very realistic listening experience.
