2020 Volvo XC60 Polestar Review

2020 Volvo XC60 Polestar Review by TestDriveNow Auto Critic Steve Hammes. Before Polestar became its own electric performance car brand it was Volvo’s hot rod shop, adding some Swedish zip to select models. But the name still lives on in the new 60 series models – referred to as Polestar engineered with a go faster persona.
Can you get a 250 horse, front-drive XC60 for about $42,000? Yes. But if you want the most robust XC60 experience, this all-wheel drive, plug-in hybrid Polestar Engineered with a couple of options stickers for $30,000 more. MSRP as-tested: $73,490 https://testdrivenow.com/2020-volvo-xc60-polestar/
