New details are starting to emerge about the Volvo V40 Polestar.

According to Auto Express, the hot hatch will use the turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from the 2015 XC90. It will reportedly produce 315 bhp (234 kW) and enable the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than six seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

Besides boasting a powerful engine, the model is slated to feature a sport-tuned suspension with stiffer springs and beefier anti-roll bars. We can also expect Ohlins shock absorbers and high-performance Brembo brakes.

It remains unclear if the model will be equipped with all-wheel drive but it's a possibility as the V40 Cross Country offers all-wheel drive on the range-topping T5.
