Volvo has brought Polestar to India. Now, Polestar is the Swedish carmaker’s performance division, just like AMG is for Mercedes Benz, Audi Sport is for Audi and the M division is for BMW. Now Mercedes Benz and Audi, both already have a competitor for the S60 Polestar in India in the form of Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 and Audi S5 Sportback, respectively. We pit these cars against each other on paper to find out which one has the best numbers.Also Read: Volvo S60 Polestar launched in India at Rs 52.50 lakhTalking about power, The S60 Polestar is powered by a 2.0-litre engine which is turbocharged and supercharged and churns out 367bhp and 470Nm of peak torque. The CLA too is powered by a 2.0-litre engine that puts put 355bhp and 450Nm of peak torque. The Audi S5 Sportback has a bigger engine with a 3.0-litre supercharged mill underneath the hood but it produces 328bhp and 440Nm of peak torque, the least of the three. All three cars have an all-wheel drive system, maximising grip for blisteringly fast lap times. Deciding the fastest out of the three cars will take a good-old fashioned road test as these numbers are too close together to give us an idea about which car is the fastest.Also Read: Mercedes launch S-Class ‘Connoisseur’s Edition’ in India at Rs 1.21 croreTalking about dimensions and weight, the Volvo S60 Polestar is 4,635 mm long, 1,864 mm wide and 1,483 mm tall.

The Audi S5 Sportback is 4,718 mm long, 1,854 mm wide and 1382 mm tall. It has a 2,811 mm long wheelbase and weighs 1745 kg. Once again, the figures are too close to call a clear winner on paper as the S60 Polestar is more powerful than the CLA 45 and S5 Sportback but it is heavier than the two of them also.advertisementAlso Read:Audi A3 facelift launched in India at Rs 30.5 lakhAnother important number for all cars is the price tag, and the Volvo S60 Polestar is priced at Rs 52.50 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 has a price tag of Rs 71.94 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi) while the Audi S5 Sportback goes for Rs 66.20 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). Going by the price, the Volvo offers the most value for money with its smaller price tag and powerful engine but before passing any judgements, we will have to pit these cars together in a road test to find out which one is the best.
