Вслед за седаном Volvo S60 комплект фирменного тюнинга Polestar для гибридных модификаций получили кроссовер Volvo XC60 и универсал Volvo V60.

В настоящее время марка Polestar сосредоточена на своих собственных моделях, а параллельно сними под брендом Polestar Engineered разрабатывает тюнинг для автомобилей Volvo. Последними продуктами стали комплекты для кроссовера XC60 и универсала V60.

Как и в случае с прошлогодним седаном S60 Polestar Engineered, новинки дорабатываются в версии с гибридным мотором T8 Twin-Engine. Мощность увеличивается на 15 л.с., до 415 л.с. Крутящий момент получает прибавку в 33 Н/м, до 669 Н/м.

Одной доработкой мотора тюнинг не ограничивается. Для моделей доступны новые 10-спицевые колёса, чёрная решётка радиатора и патрубки выхлопной системы, а ещё — шильдики Polestar. В салоне появляются чёрная отделка и золотистые ремни безопасности, недоступные для прочих версий Volvo.

В отличие от Volvo S60 Polestar Engineered, которых сделали всего 20 экземпляров, тираж Volvo XC60 Polestar Engineered и Volvo V60 Polestar Engineered ограничен не будет. Модели появятся в продаже летом 2019 года, но цены на новинки пока не названы.

Volvo Car USA is adding 415 horsepower plug-in hybrid electric variants of its award-winning XC60 mid-sized SUV and all-new V60 mid-sized wagon to the 2020 line-up within the “Polestar Engineered” trim. The XC60 was named 2018 World Car of the Year and 2018 North American Utility of the Year.

The Polestar Engineered trim debuted on the 2019 S60. Similar to the S60, both the XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered and V60 T8 Polestar Engineered offer performance expressions of each vehicles’ design, while enhancing crucial driving elements such as throttle response, braking and handling on the T8 Twin-Engine Plug-in Hybrid propulsion system.

“The introduction of the new Polestar Engineered trim on the S60 sold out online in under an hour,” said Anders Gustafsson, president and CEO of Volvo Car USA, “Polestar Engineered modifications to the XC60 and V60 offer an additional dose of performance to an already powerful, responsive and efficient vehicle.”

Available in Summer 2019, the model year 2020 XC60 and V60 Polestar Engineered cars mirror enhancements found on the 2019 S60 T8 Polestar Engineered. Powertrain software has been optimized to provide faster access to torque and focus additional power to the rear wheels. This optimization allows the Volvo T8 Twin Engine Plug-in Hybrid to produce 415 horsepower and 494 lb-ft. of torque.

For enhanced suspension performance, Volvo partnered with Öhlins, a Swedish-based advanced suspension technology brand, that pioneered a dual flow valve technology in the struts, which responds quickly to road imperfections. An Öhlins front strut bar increases the stiffness of the car’s body, allowing for more precise and responsive control.

Unique six-piston brake calipers feature Polestar’s trademark gold coloring and are visible through lightweight forged alloy wheels. Wheel designs are unique to the S60, V60 and XC60 to provide both a muscular appearance and enhanced airflow to brake discs.

The exterior design features a sporty character with integrated black chrome tail pipes, high-gloss black grille, wheel arch extensions and discreet Polestar Engineered emblems at the front and rear.

Inside the car is Polestar’s signature gold safety belts among a charcoal color scheme with metal mesh aluminum panels. A Nappa leather/open-grid textile upholstery combined with a leather sport steering wheel and gear shifter combine performance with luxury touches.
