Since I'm still waiting for my present Jaguar lease to expire I've had time to play around with the options available for ordering my XC40. One of the options available is the Polstar Performance Software. It's the last option offered ($1,295). If you check the information on this option it refers you to the Engineered Polstar web page. When I went to that page it said that the Polstar option was a 367 hp engine, which doesn't make sense. I tried calling the local Volvo dealer and the guy I talked with couldn't really provide me with any answers on exactly what the Polstar option provided on the XC40, but agreed with me that it probably didn't really provide 367 hp.

Does anyone know exactly what the Polstar option provides on the XC40?

Thanks bdalameda. And extra 20 hp isn't a bad deal for $1,300. Especially if it's in the mid range.

I believe the power increases have been set at an extra 7bhp and 27lb-ft of torque. Maximum torque is lower in the rev range and I believe the gearbox also has quicker shifts.

Specs I’ve read give 2hp at the top of the band. Now the mid range is spectacular at around a 25% increase over stock in the middle of the band. And faster shifts and higher rpm shifts to boot. Ride In Eco or Comfort and you will never know you spent the money. In dynamic, it’s a bear. Google polestar R5 and you will find the specs put out by Volvo. The numbers I am seeing above don’t match what Volvo says.
