Polestar ENGINEERED OPTIMISATION

There's always a next level

Take your Volvo car to a new level of excitement with Polestar Engineered Optimisation. A quick and easy installation that gives you a more dynamic driving experience when you need it the most. The technology is not limited to the engine - the whole powertrain is enhanced.


Polestar Engineered engine optimisation carries on the tradition of adding a flavour of Polestar to your Volvo car with the help of powertrain software enhancements. Designed to increase power, acceleration, transmission performance (automatic only) and all-wheel drive torque, Polestar Optimisation can be added to new and existing Volvo models.

So, let’s give your Volvo car a Polestar treat and enjoy the drive.

Faster Throttle Response

Throttle response has been calibrated to respond more quickly to driver commands - something that gives higher precision and better feel.

Faster Gear Changes

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.

 

Better Gear Precision and Gear 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 (where possible) for better stability.

Faster Gear and Engine Response

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.

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. Combined with faster throttle response and gear changes this makes the car significantly more dynamic to drive.

Polestar AWD Feature

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.

D5 Over Boost

The Polestar Optimisation software for the D5 (68) engine offers an exciting enhancement. Polestar have introduced an “Over boost” function that provides an additional +20nm Torque and +15hp power for up to 20 seconds once the peak power of the engine has been reached. This additional power and torque is over and above the already increased output figures that the Optimisation provides so you get an impressive boost when you need it most. 

Polestar Engineered Drive Mode

When Optimising any SPA or CMA Volvo equipped with the Drive Mode selector, the Dynamic / Power mode is now displayed as Polestar Engineered. This further enhances the driving experience by providing a visual link to the performance upgrades that have been installed.
