Volvo is working to change its yuppie image as it enters the world of performance luxury sedans.
Volvos don’t exactly have a reputation for being performance machines, but the now Chinese-owned brand is hoping to change that perception with the help of the Sweden-based Polestar motorsports team. Their proposal: the S60 T6 AWD R-Design. Design wise, the car looks fantastic but what’s kind of strange about it is its engine placement. Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman takes note of this fact as he pits the blue Volvo against the Audi S4.
Both luxury performance sedans are all-wheel drive and are aimed at the same group of buyers. Has Volvo turned over a new leaf with the ability to successfully take on the proven and hot-selling S4? Check out this head-to-head duel to find out.
