The Volvo C30 Polestar concept is a car that comes with a lot of expectations from a lot of people. Granted, the hype won’t be settled until after we see it out on the road, but thanks to Autocar, we’re getting an early look on what people are saying about Volvo’s emphatic answer to the Ford Focus RS.
Ironically enough, both the C30 Polestar and the new Focus RS come with the same 2.5-liter Volvo T5 engine, although Volvo will be quick to point out that their version has been quasi-tweaked to beat anything and everything the Focus RS can offer, including a 0-60mph time of just 4.6 seconds.
Whether there’s truth to that will be answered as soon as the car is released. In the meantime, check out Autocar’s test run of the C30 Polestar to get a closer look at the car the Focus RS should begin worrying about.
