Spyshots: Possible Volvo XC90 Caught Winter Testing

Volvo Polestar S60 and V60 Revealed

They are here! The new (ice) cool Volvo S60 and V60 Polestar machines that is. These two crowd-pleasers have drawn inspiration from the C30 and S60 Concept cars and the Australian S60 Polestar and are to mark “the start of an extended Polestar production model range.” Yes please.
