It’s quite a leap in price from the Inscription trim to the Polestar Engineered. This difference is halved when upgrading from the Inscription with the T8 plug-in hybrid.
Polestar is Volvo’s performance brand, which means this model has lightweight forged wheels, high-performance Brembo brakes, and Ohlins dampers. It also benefits from a slight boost in performance, 15 horsepower, over the Inscription T8.
Other upgrades include 19-inch wheels, exterior trim embellishments, and an upgraded exhaust system. Nappa leather seats and a Bowers and Wilkins audio system are among the interior changes.

The 2020 Volvo S60 R-Design and Inscription models offer a good number of the amenities we expect in a compact luxury sedan. We’d opt for the T6 version, which delivers robust acceleration and faultless handling, rivaling the best sedans from Germany.
