2017 Volvo V60 Polestar Review: The complete package

– Detroit, Michigan

There aren’t really any fast wagons anymore – in the U.S., anyway. For the kind of power and space offered by this Volvo V60 Polestar, you have to look at a more conventional Audi SQ5, or an outrageously ugly and stupid BMW X4 M40i. A Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon is way more powerful and way more expensive. A BMW 3 Series Wagon can’t match it on performance. That really puts this V60 Polestar in a class of one – a bright blue, Swedish, totally-freaking-cool segment all by itself.

Only 1,500 S60 and V60 Polestar models will be sold worldwide, and a new powertrain makes this updated version even more powerful than the first one. This is one incredibly special machine, though, at $62,595, it’s also $26,000 more expensive than a base V60. Get ‘em while they’re hot.
