Road Test: 2012 Volvo S60 T6 AWD Polestar

Road Test: 2012 Volvo S60 T6 AWD Polestar

The most powerful engine variant available for Volvo S60 is the 6-cylinder, 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine known as the T6. As standard, it produces 304 horsepower and 440 Newton metres of torque. This provides quite a good performance for the Volvo S60. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h takes 6,1 seconds and the top speed is 250 km/h. This kind of performance is usually enough for all your driving needs. But no matter how fast your car is, as the time goes by, you get used to its performance and the car may start to feel just a bit slow. Luckily, this kind of problem can be solved quite easily especially when you have a turbocharged engine. By tweaking the engine management system, you can have a nice improvement in the engine’s power output. However, with a chip tuning there is always a little risk that you don’t want to take, especially when you have a new car.

Road Test: 2011 Volvo S60 2.0T

Now Volvo has built something really fun for us. And that’s the completely new S60. From the outside it looks much sportier than before. The front of the car has a stronger appearance with bigger head lights, grille and air intakes. Larger iron mark on the grill makes sure that you know that it is still a Volvo. The roof line starts to drop early, with stretched C-pillar continuing almost all the way to the end of the car. Short boot lid and strong C-pillar create a bit of a coupe-like roof line although S60 is still clearly a sedan. Tail lights have a more visual form, but the basic shape of the tail lights are similar to the previous model.
