Like the new S90 sedan and V90 wagon, but wish it was a little sportier? Polestar is here to help.
The Swedish automaker’s recently acquired performance division is said to be working on a version of both the new flagship models with as much as 600 horsepower on tap. Until this happens, the company is offering a new Polestar Performance Optimization package.
The upgrades include sharper response on and off the throttle as well as a more precise and quicker-shifting transmission. Details of increased engine and vehicle performance were not released, but the package is launching first on the D5 diesel engine version, and starting in October, will be available for the turbocharged gasoline T6 engine as well.
The Polestar Performance Volvos may not be ready to take on BMW M and Mercedes-AMG models just yet, but ought to help sharpen them up a little for the driver who demands a bit more of a sporty character with the reassurance of the factory backing.
