Polestar Optimisation Upgrade

What if you could get your Volvo car filled with extended driving experience? That gives you enhanced response, more precise, sharper and intense reactions from the car? Well, you can.

With Polestar Engineered optimisation you will get more out of your Volvo car. A more personal car 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 are unaffected, as are fuel consumption and emission levels. 

Energetic. Dynamic. Invigorating

​Your Volvo was created to make you feel connected, secure and comfortable. And now you can experience the excitement of enhanced performance. Our Polestar Optimisation software upgrade will bring heightened engine power, faster, more precise gear capability and fine-tuned throttle response.

​Faster Throttle Response

Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands, giving higher precision and better feel.

Faster Gear Changes

The automatic gearbox changes gears more quickly to improve acceleration which provides a better response to the driver.

Better Gear Precision and Hold

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 for better stability.

​Faster Gear and Engine Response

The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to respond more quickly when the driver uses the accelerator. This makes the car more balanced and predictable when cornering.

​Increased Engine Performance

We have concentrated the power where it is needed most - in the midrange, perfect for overtaking or when on a busy motorway.

​Polestar AWD Feature

​The AWD feature is included in all new optimisations for AWD vehicles and increases torque distribution to the rear wheels, for more dynamic driving.

​D5 Over Boost

The "Over Boost" function provides an additional +20nm Torque and +15hp power for up to 20 seconds once the peak power of the engine has been reached.
