Polestar's fully integrated, sophisticated tune is not a "bolt-on" solution. For example the upgrade re-optimizes and keeps full functionality in all of the many built-in safety functions designed to save the engine in case of a partial system malfunction. It has been developed and thoroughly tested at the Volvo Engine Laboratories using the same elaborate testing procedures that Volvo uses for their standard engines.

The software re-calibrates hundreds of parameters that control the engine. The changes include:

  •  Increase of turbocharger boost pressure
  •  Re-optimization of ignition- and fuel-mapping
  •  Re-calibration of throttle-response

Polestar Performance can be installed by any Volvo dealer.  As with other Volvo Original Accessories, Polestar Performance can increase the resale value of your Volvo. For more information on Polestar please visit www.polestar.se/en-us/start/ or contact your local Volvo dealer.
