The Volvo SUV lineup is going to get a lot less boring.
Polestar Performance has confirmed that it’s eyeing the Swedish automaker’s SUV models to add to its range of high-performance offerings. Polestar intends to start with the XC60 before moving onto the XC90. The tuning firm is confident that it has built enough credibility from its motorsports efforts and sedans models to move on to bigger things, that is giving the same special treatment to Volvo SUVs.
The company also confirmed that it’ll be working with Volvo’s new Drive-E engines and will produce a more powerful four-cylinder for the S60 and V40. Currently, Polestar has engine upgrades available throughout Volvo’s lineup but only the S60 gets upgrades to the chassis, body and interior.
