POLESTAR Parts Price List

For Volvo owners who have been eagerly waiting for some Polestar goodies to come to Malaysia, good news! Volvo Car Malaysia has announced that it is offering the Polestar Performance Optimisation programme for the V40 T5, XC60 (T5 and T6), and S60 T6.

On offer are five separate Polestar performance parts packages – chassis, intake and exhaust, wheels, interior and exterior, and optimisation. The first sees the addition of new shock absorbers, coil springs, as well as a front strut bar (S60 only).

Meanwhile, those who opt to upgrade their cars’ intake and exhaust will benefit from a stainless steel exhaust system, which is complimented with a sports air filter, new air box lid, and a rear diffuser.

The wheels package sees the fitment of 19-inch lightweight rims (V40 and S60), with XC60 owners getting larger 21-inch rims. Pirelli P Zero tyres accompany the new set of rims on the XC60 and V40, while the S60 gets Bridgestone Potenza tyres instead.

Next up, there’s the interior and exterior package, which introduces several visual enhancements to your Volvo, including a rear spoiler, new door sills, black side mirrors, sports pedals, lower door decor (S60 only), lower door panel (XC60 only), boot handle (XC60 only), and a new gear knob.

The last package – optimisation – “provides a completely new driving experience for you Volvo,” focusing on improving five aspects of the car – throttle response, gearshift speed, gearshift precision and gear hold, off-throttle response, and engine performance (only for Drive-E engines).

That last bit means more power from your Volvo’s engine, starting with V40 T5, which originally outputs 245 hp and 350 Nm of torque. With the optimisation package, it now produces 253 hp and 400 Nm of torque.

As for the XC60, the T5 model develops 253 hp and 400 Nm with the upgrade package, up from 245 hp and 350 Nm, while the T6 provides 310 hp and 430 Nm, a gain of 4 hp and 30 Nm. Finally, the S60 T6 when stock, makes 306 hp and 400 Nm, and with the optimisation, 310 hp and 430 Nm.
