Volvo has detailed its updated S60 Polestar performance sedan, due to arrive in Australian showrooms in April.

The 2014 S60 Polestar's local reveal followed the the S60 racer’s competition debut at the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide, less than a year after the local launch of a limited edition model run.

Major changes for 2014 include a new Brembo performance brake package with 370mm front rotors (up from 336mm) along with a new paddle-shift transmission system.

Volvo says the evolution of the S60 Polestar is “based on feedback from Australian journalists (happy to help - Ed.) and customers to the highly-capable debut model”.

Along with the new brakes and paddle-shifters, the refreshed model also gets minor updates to the interior.

Power still comes from a six-cylinder turbocharged ‘T6’ petrol engine, optimised by Polestar to produce 257kW and 500Nm.

The six-speed automatic transmission and Haldex all-wheel-drive system have also received the Polestar treatment, contributing to a 0-100km/h time of 4.9 seconds, and a limited top speed of 250km/h.

“The luxury sedan segment in Australia is defined by significant performance variants. Following on the from the successful limited-edition run last year in Australia, Volvo decided to introduce unique Polestar variants on the production line for a number of markets,” Volvo Car Australia Managing Director, Matt Braid, said.

“As Polestar’s test market, if you like, we are delighted to be at the forefront of Polestar’s global development as a high-performance sub brand.”

The 2014 Volvo S60 Polestar will arrive in Australian showrooms from April, but the Swedish carmaker tells us the V60 wagon version won’t be heading our way any time soon.

Pricing for the sedan is unchanged at $109,950 plus on-roads.
