Volvo has long had a knack for making top-notch cross country wagons, but it decided to step outside of the box and do something different with the Volvo V90 Cross Country. Instead of following the normal blueprints, it handed the keys over to Polestar. Polestar is the automaker’s performance and racing division, and it helped created a new type of Cross Country for Volvo. It didn’t rebuild the vehicle. Instead, Polestar optimized it in order to offer amazing performance at every turn.
Polestar optimized the V90’s mid-range features to improve everyday driving. This includes a new calibration of the gearbox, so the vehicle is able to shift faster. This calibration creates a smoother ride and a more engaging experience than you will get with other cross-country wagons. It also allows you to accelerate more quickly than before.
Passing is easier than ever before, thanks to the Polestar upgrade. Polestar recalibrated the throttle response while improving the accelerator’s reaction. This makes it easier to overtake other cars. You will also notice improved performance when driving down twisting roads.
More Predictable and Easier to Control
We are sure that you want to receive control and predictability from a vehicle, and the Volvo V90 Cross Country provides it. Polestar optimized this vehicle to provide fast responses when you release the throttle.
*This feature is only available on vehicles with automatic gearboxes.
Polestar calibrated the gearshift points to make driving more precise than ever before. This is true, even when accelerating quickly. At the same time, it utilizes a gear hold function so the gears won’t change when you’re cornering with high lateral g-force.
