With the all-new XC40 in its first year of production and initial deliveries already completed (some severely delayed) there's a lot to consider, accessories being one of them especially with Polestars Performance Optimization program via software upgrade. Its just the T5 Drive-E Automatic model that qualifies, with both T5 and D4 for Europe as expected. The software upgrade improves nearly every aspect of the XC40's performance from delivering improved low end torque to better cornering ability, all to rival Germans auto makers that have long dominated many hot crossover segments.

Op. No.: 36012-2

Polestar engineers have taken a holistic approach to take the driving experience to a new level. No less than five key functions have been optimized to provide faster response, better balance and more intuitive driving. This results in a vehicle that responds quickly and predictably, which is important for those who engage in active driving, whether on the racetrack or on the road.

Experience the Polestar effect
With more than 20 years of racing experience, Polestar is at the forefront when it comes to performance optimization. What we learn from motor sports, we take into the development of new products. The goal is always the same - to offer all Volvo owners an even greater driving experience.

Our optimization 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(1)
The automatic transmission changes gears more quickly to both improve acceleration and to better respond to the driver's commands, e.g. downshifts before passing.

Better gear precision and gear hold(1)
The gears have also been calibrated to take advantage of the engine's improved midrange performance. The transmission also avoids changes when cornering at high g-forces (where possible) for better stability.

Faster gear and engine response(1)
The engine and transmission have been calibrated to respond more quickly when the driver releases the accelerator. This makes the vehicle 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 passing or when on a busy highway. Combined with faster throttle response and gear changes, this makes the vehicle significantly more dynamic to drive.
