Volvo Canada announces T6 Polestar Performance software packages

Following the recent announcement of Polestar Performance packages available for selected vehicles equipped with the T5 engine, Volvo Cars of Canada is announcing a factory-authorized performance tuning software for additional models at Volvo retailers across the country. Volvo Car's official motorsport and performance partner, Polestar Performance has been developing optimized performance upgrades for Volvo since 1999.

The next wave of Polestar performance software packages will be available for 2011 and newer XC60, S60 and XC70 fitted with a T6 engine. The T6 performance software package carries an MSRP of $1,495 installed and goes on sale nationwide Monday December 5th.

The Polestar Performance software package is now available for the following models:

- 2011-2012 S60 T6
- 2011-2012 XC60 T6
- 2011-2012 XC60 T6 R-Design
- 2011-2012 XC70 T6
- 2008-2012 C30 T5
- 2008-2012 C70 T5
- 2008-2011 S40 T5

"We have already received tremendous feedback from our customers just weeks after announcing the T5 software package," said Carol Kitchen, vice president of customer service for Volvo Cars of Canada. "We are pleased to offer this option to our performance-minded customers to own vehicles featuring the award-winning T6 engine."

The T6 Polestar software package adds 25 hp and 30 ft-lbs. of torque, upping power output to

325 hp and 355 ft-lbs. The software does not negatively affect fuel economy, as the efficient tuning of the engine only increases the power output when needed and will not void the existing Volvo factory warranty.
