What if you could get your Volvo car filled with extended driving experience? That gives you an enhanced response, more precise, sharper and more intense reactions from the car. Well, you can.
With Polestar Engineered optimisation you will get more out of your Volvo car. A more personal vehicle that suits you and your way of driving. An improved experience, developed by Polestar together with Volvo Cars - and installed by Volvo Cars. That means your warranty and service intervals, as are fuel consumption and emission levels, are unaffected.
With more than 20 years on the track, Polestar is at the leading edge of performance. Our team uses everything we learnt on the racing circuit to engineer products that enhance your Volvo driving experience with Polestar Engineered optimisation.
Your Volvo was created to make you feel connected, secure and comfortable. And now you can experience the excitement of enhanced performance. The Polestar Optimisation software upgrade will bring heightened engine power, faster, more precise gear capability and fine-tuned throttle response.
Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands - something that gives higher precision and better feel.
The automatic gearbox changes gears more quickly to both improve acceleration and to better respond to the driver's commands, e.g. downshifts before overtaking.
The gears have also been calibrated to exploit the engine's improved midrange performance. The gearbox also avoids changes when cornering at high g-forces (where possible) for better stability.
The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to respond more quickly when the driver releases the accelerator. This makes the car more balanced and predictable when cornering for example.
We have concentrated the power where it is needed most - in the midrange; perfect for overtaking or when on a busy motorway. Combined with faster throttle response and gear changes this makes the car significantly more dynamic to drive.
This feature is included in all new optimisations for AWD vehicles. The feature can retrospectively be added to vehicles which currently have the optimisation via the Service Promise, Total Upgrade or Volvo Selekt Software. The upgrade increases torque distribution to the rear wheels of Volvo cars equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD), for more dynamic driving.
