Polestar Optimisation

Polestar Engineers have taken a holistic approach with engine optimisation software, to take the driving experience to a new level. No fewer than five key functions have been optimised to provide faster response, better balance and more intuitive driving. This results in a car that responds quickly and predictably, which is important for those who engage in active driving, whether on the racetrack or on the road. With more than 20 years' racing experience, Polestar is at the forefront when it comes to performance optimisation. What has been learnt from motorsport is taken into the development of new products. The goal is always the same - to offer all Volvo owners an even greater driving experience.

Our optimisation is the result of careful development work within five key areas. Together they form a balanced, well proven and thoroughly tested package of driving pleasure.

  • 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 Optimisation is now £695 including fitting and VAT (reduced from £835) until the end of September 2018.

Another successful sponsorship

Volvo Cars Poole at annual Christchurch Food Festival

  • Volvo Cars Poole supported the Christchurch Food Festival for a fourth year in a row
  • Volvo retailer showcased its multi-award-winning model range
  • The Christchurch Food Festival welcomed over 70,000 visitors to the event on 12th and 13th May

Local Volvo retailer Volvo Cars Poole sponsored the recent Christchurch Food Festival making it four successful years of exhibiting at the popular culinary event on the south coast.

Recently relocated to Ringwood Road, Volvo Cars Poole showcased the newly launched compact SUV, the XC40, to over 250 visitors to the stand at Christchurch’s award-winning food and wine festival, now in its 19th year, on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May.

On display in Christchurch Quay, Volvo Cars Poole had the stylish V40, the award-winning XC60 and the family-friendly XC90 alongside the XC40 for visitors to explore. Visitors could experience the premium cars in the comfort of a relaxed, Scandinavian environment while enjoying traditional Swedish Fika.

James Litton, general manager at Volvo Cars Poole, said: “The team had a great day out at Christchurch Food Festival, showcasing our luxury range of vehicles. We hope to see many of the visitors to our stall come through the doors at Ringwood Road to test drive the XC40 and other models.”

Volvo XC90 is a Genuine Life-Saver

• No Volvo XC90 driver or passenger deaths reported in UK car-to-car crashes

• Government crash statistics back up Volvo's pioneering real-life crash investigation work

• More than 70,000 Volvo XC90s sold in the UK to date

• Entire Volvo range fitted with automatic emergency braking as standard since 2014

• Volvo's advanced safety technology designed to keep occupants and other roads users safe

Not a single Volvo XC90 occupant has died in a car-to-car accident in the UK, according to official Government crash figures.

The statistics, provided by the police as a result of personal injury accidents on public roads, show that no XC90 driver or passenger fatalities have been reported since records began in 2004.

The XC90, more than 70,000 of which have been sold in the UK to date, has been at the forefront of SUV safety ever since the first-generation model was launched in 2002. It was the first SUV in the world to be fitted with Roll Stability Control, which measures the car's roll angle in extreme manoeuvres and activates the stability control system to reduce the risk of a rollover accident.

The second-generation XC90, launched in 2014, came with two world-first safety aids: Run-off Road Protection and automatic emergency braking at junctions. Should the car inadvertently leave the road, Run-off Road Protection automatically tightens the front seatbelts to keep occupants in the safest possible position. To help prevent spinal injuries, a collapsible energy-absorbing section between the front seats and seat frame cushions the vertical forces that can occur if the car lands on a hard surface. The XC90 was also the first car in the world to feature automatic emergency braking that activates if the driver turns into the path of an oncoming vehicle at a junction.

Volvo's pioneering safety technology goes beyond protecting those inside the car, however. The XC60 mid-size premium SUV was the first car to come with automatic emergency braking as standard when it was launched in 2008, while every new Volvo model has been fitted with this life-saving technology since 2014. The latest version of automatic emergency braking can even detect pedestrians, cyclists and large animals, helping to keep all road users free from harm.

Volvo has an exceptional record in official crash tests, too. Both the latest-generation XC90 and XC60 were named the car with the best overall performance of the year when they were tested by safety organisation Euro NCAP, in 2015 and 2017 respectively.

Volvo even uses information from real accidents to improve the safety of its cars. Since 1970, its Accident Research Team has collected data from thousands of real-world accidents to help better understand and address real-life safety on our roads.

This continued focus on safety innovation and real-life accident data is all part of Volvo's Vision 2020 – that no one will be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020.

Matthew Avery, the Director of Research at Thatcham Research, the motor insurers' automotive research centre who analysed the Government data, said: "The extraordinary safety record of the Volvo XC90 in the UK is built on class-leading passive safety. In Euro NCAP impact testing, unrivalled protection was given to occupants of the car. Volvo has long been a pioneer in active safety, too, offering standard-fit safety technologies which help drivers to avoid crashes completely. This not only protects occupants, but also those outside of the car.

"It's that combination of outstanding passive and active safety which sees Volvo cars excel in Euro NCAP safety testing, setting the standard for all car makers."

Commenting on the XC90's safety record, Jon Wakefield, Volvo Car UK's Managing Director, said: "Volvo has been at the forefront of automotive occupant safety since we invented the three-point seatbelt in 1959, and our determination to build the safest cars possible has been backed up not only by the safety awards we have won, but most importantly by the real-life safety record of our cars. Put simply, there is no safer car on the road than a Volvo."
