Volvo Polestar Upgrade

Optimise your driving pleasure

Our optimisation for Drive-E engines is the result of careful development work in five key areas. Together they form a complete solution that takes your driving to a new level.

Enter the world of Polestar, where performance optimisation is at the heart of the design. With engine upgrades and model enhancements, your Volvo experience can be transformed to the next level.

Driven by the desire for refinement. Polestar is Volvo Cars' performance companion, born and raised on the world's racing circuits. For more than two decades, this collaborative name has worked to develop and improve the speed, performance and efficiency of Volvo motors and Drive-E engines. As well as having performance, Polestar also dedicates a large amount of its engineering knowledge to provide safe and predictable driving capabilities.

Making the great, extraordinary. Original Volvo models, such as the S60 and V60, are available as Polestar Engineered performance cars with refined components and maximised abilities that you soon won't want to live without.

Knowledge is power...

With more than 20 years on the track, Polestar is at the leading edge of performance. Our team uses everything we learnt on the racing circuit to engineer products that enhance your driving experience.



Five optimisations, one powerful package...

Off-Throttle Response

The engine and gearbox have been calibrated to provide faster responses when the driver suddenly lifts off the throttle, providing improved predictability and control.

Gearshift Speed

The gear shift speed has been increased, allowing the car to accelerate faster and react more directly to driver input. *Automatic gearbox only.

Throttle Response

The throttle response has been recalibrated to provide improved feedback and accelerator reaction - ideal for overtaking or during active driving on a twisty road.

Engine Performance

All Drive-E optimisations are made to provide greater performance in the engine’s mid-range power band - perfect for the sporty driver when overtaking, entering a highway or exiting a corner. *Automatic gearbox only.

Gearshift Precision

The gearshift has been optimised to provide a more precise driving experience with faster acceleration. Gearshift points have been calibrated to utilise the optimised mid-range engine performance, while the gear hold function maintains the same gear (wherever possible) when cornering with high lateral g-force. *Automatic gearbox only.




Polestar engineered Wheels.

Polestar Engineered Wheels are equipped with lightweight rims that improve steering precision and tyres that have been exhaustively tested to provide the optimal level of grip.

Polestar engineered parts are available for the Volvo V40, S60, V60 and XC60 Classic.
