We are yet to get a fully kitted-out, production Volvo XC90 Polestar, but the Swedish car maker is ready to release the first stages of upgrades for the family SUV in form of power kits for D4 and D5 diesel and T5 and T6 petrol Drive-E engines.

The ‘Polestar Performance Optimisation’ are designed for real-life enhancement of the car’s drivability and joy of driving. They are not just about numbers. By boosting the power and torque figures of both the D5 diesel and T6 petrol Drive-E engines – especially at medium revs – and speeding up the gearshifts, the kits enable Volvo XC90 Polestar to accelerate faster, pull better, and overtake with more ease, thus making the experience of driving the car more effortless.
