From the reviews of the S60 Polestar Engineered, it's a bit of a letdown.

https://www.autoblog.com/2018/11/23/2019-volvo-s60-polestar-engineered-review/

I find it interesting that Autoblog doesn't even consider this a "real" Polestar - maybe because there are no engine modifications over a regular T8 outside of a tune?

I honestly think that our non-hybridized Polestars are the last "real" production Polestar models (and has actual motorsport lineage). No more Cyan blue color scheme and changed the badge design - I'll skip.

Whenever I get my next performance wagon, it will likely be back to AMG, a Porsche Sport Turismo, or an Audi RS6 (if it ever comes stateside).

I agree. That's why I picked up one of the last 2018 model left in CA.

I see that they are showing up on OSD also. Curious that the option list is quite short, no Advanced package and etc.

Also curious that there is now a delivery charge listed for OSD.

Yeah, I read that. Would be awesome if Audi actually does it. That said though, I'm really happy with the P*. It just has so much personality!
Very likely to happen. A friend of my uncle's second ex-wife has a business relationship with Audi NA, and he's prepping to get one.

Scratch the first comment, reread the price sheet and it鈥檚 there.

Ordered a xc60 P 2020. only extra options were wheel size (21standard or22) and BW audio. Probably fall delivery in the US.

Sorry if this has been asked already, does the P* engineered cars have rebel blue as a color option?

No more rebel or cyan blue for this gen.

Unfortunately, I think the connection to any racing heritage is gone. I can鈥檛 imagine getting rid of my 鈥17 Polestar wagon, but if I do, it鈥檒l be for an AMG wagon or an Audi wagon of some kind, provided they move to a touchscreen infotainment.
