a couple of months Ago we went to the presentation all the more important to Volvo in 2016, the Volvo S90 and V90. The Volvo S90 is the saloon of the greater size of the Swedish firm, that comes to replace the Volvo S80. The change from one to another is quite significant on an aesthetic level, but even more when we talk about its technology. For its part, the Volvo V90 is basically the same model, although it has a familiar silhouette to increase the volume and ease of loading, also gaining slightly on comfort for the rear seats.
Now, these two models receive the news of Polestar, the division of sports Volvo. Have a few minor cosmetic changes that provide them with a more sporty feel visual, letting us see that there are a few normal vehicles, gaining a slight but present differentiation. But not everything is in the visual part, there are also dynamic improvements.
Polestar is within the world of competition and the benefits should be improved, although, to tell the truth, the gain is not very high. Versions D5 of the Volvo S90 and V90 are slightly optimized. Series develops 235 bhp and 480 Nm, that happen to be 240 hp and 500 Nm of torque. On the other hand, also improve the response of the change, both in speed and accuracy, and the sensitivity of the throttle. The price of this improvement is about 1,000 euros.
The positive side is that with these changes you will not lose the warranty of the mark, nor is there to reduce the times of hotfixes, maintenance, etc, Volvo also ensures that fuel consumption and emissions remain unchanged.
Niels Moller, the manager of Polestar stated that “The S90 and V90 as they offer excellent driving dynamics, and we are delighted to raise the level of performance even further with optimization of the Polestar”. The division of sports of the brand are already recently launched their preparation in the todocamino larger of Volvo, the XC90.
