2017 Volvo V60 T6 Polestar: Acceleration Test

How fast is a 2017 Volvo V60 T6 Polestar? What the heck is a Volvo V60 T6 Polestar? Road Test Manager Jonathan Elfalan explains the latter and aims to find out the former by running down the drag strip at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. Find out if this Swede is worth your hard-earned krona. (It's what they buy things with in Sweden.)

[MUSIC PLAYING] JONATHAN: Hi, guys. Jonathan here. And we are in a 2017 Volvo V60 T6 Polestar. Now if you're unfamiliar with Polestar, they've been doing some hopped up versions of Volvos for a number of years now. And they were acquired by Volvo actually in 2015. So they've been doing models that are production versions-- hopped up versions of the production models-- and here we have the V60. With the V60, it's powered by Volvo's twin-charged engine, which in stock form makes roughly 300 horsepower, I think. But with the V60, it bumps that up to 362. So you get about a 60 horsepower bump, about 50 pounds of torque, which is a good amount. So right now we're just going to do a baseline run like we always do. So not messing around with any settings, we're just going to basically turn on the car and get going. All right, so here we go. [ENGINE RACING] That's pretty good. That's pretty good off-the-line power. You know, I haven't driven a standard V60, but the shifts definitely feel punchier than kind of like your standard, run of the mill automatic-- almost like a dual-clutch transmission. So that's pretty good. That's pretty good for a first run. Anything, I think, under six seconds is pretty good. But again that was just our baseline run. I'm going to go ahead and try and play around with some settings here to see if we can get a better launch. OK so we found this stability control Off button in the menu. It's kind of a convoluted way of getting to it, but nonetheless we found it. And we're ready to roll. Go ahead and give it a little bit of power braking with ESC off. We have all-wheel drive, so off-the-line traction is not going to be an issue with this. So we can pretty much kind of power brake the heck out of it. And that should give us a little better launch off the line. So here we go. [ENGINE RACING] 2,300-- yeah, nice. OK. Not bad. I like the sound of those shifts. Like they're nice and crisp. There's no delay-- very nice. Some engines sound better than others. This definitely has a much more, kind of throaty low-- low rumble to it. It does sound better than the XC60 that I just drove, which you can hear a little bit of that supercharger whine, but it's not-- it's not the best sounding engine. It still kind of sounds like a 4-cylinder. This sounds better. So far we've got a pretty decent run at 5.3 seconds. With the weather conditions that we have here, I don't think it's going to get much quicker. But hey, let's give this one more go and see if we can do a little better. [ENGINE RACING] Nice-- yeah, those shifts are just really nice and crisp-- no delay-- very nice. There's no driver error possible when you have a transmission that just kind of does everything for you. So that's nice. I think that's about as good as we're going to get-- yeah, fantastic. So we managed to squeak down to a 5.2, and again that's in 80-plus degree weather. I think if it were a little cooler, this could probably drop down another couple tenths. But hey, in this heat that's about the best we can ask for right now. But, yeah, good stuff-- I kind of like this thing. All right, guys. That is the 2017 Volvo V60 Polestar.
