Volvo’s in-house tuning and motorsport arm, Polestar, announced the launch of a series of performance upgrades for the new Volvo S90 and V90. As always, these are thorough upgrades that not only increase the output of the engines, but also the drivetrain system so that you can make most of the extra oomph.
Developed in close cooperation with the engineers and racing drivers of Polestar Cyan Racing, Polestar Performance Package for the V90 and S90 includes at this stage optimization for the D5 PowerPulse diesel engine which gets a boost from 235 hp and 480 Nm to 240 hp and 500 Nm at the cost, in UK, of £835. The treatment also includes improving throttle and off-throttle response, gearshift speed and precision, as well as overall engine performance. The goal is to make these car not just faster but more dynamic and enjoyable to drive.
“We continue to enhance the performance of Volvo’s new, class-leading SPA vehicle architecture and Drive-E powertrains. The S90 and V90 already offer excellent driving dynamics, and we are delighted to raise the performance level even further with Polestar Performance Optimisation,” said Niels Möller, COO of Polestar, the Volvo Cars performance brand.
