We are big fans of high-performance wagons, with a special warm place in our heart for fast Volvo wagons. Lucky for us, host Jason Cammisa got behind the wheel of the hottest Swede wagon of them all on the newest episode of Ignition.
With its “Rebel Blue” paint hue that borders on perfection, a loud, raspy, and powerful turbocharged inline-six cylinder, and all-wheel drive, the Volvo V60 Polestar is a textbook example of a high-powered Swedish longroof. Underneath the very pretty, and very blue bodywork churns a 3.0-liter six-cylinder, spitting out 345 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. This is enough oomph to sling the V60 Polestar from 0 to 60 mph in 5.0-seconds flat, making it the third-fastest station wagon Motor Trend has ever tested.
Cammisa slides through snowy backroads in the powerful, attractive wagon, detailing the changes made to the standard V60 that earn the Polestar badge. New springs, shocks, wheels, tires, brakes, and exhaust ensure the wagon is as fast as it looks, and the Volvo badge means it will be equally as comfortable, well-made, and safe as well.
Still not convinced? Take a look at the fastest Volvo wagon ever made in the newest episode ofIgnition below.
