Every time a new model is released the Mercedes, all fans of the brand begin to wonder what will be the AMG version. In BMW – its model M, S and RS models from Audi, a new series of SVR by Jaguar and Land Rover, and many others. So when 2018-2019 Volvo launched the new XC90 in , immediately began to line up speculation about a possible Polestar model. Consider the most realistic assumptions, existing today.


As the head of the mechanical assembly production of the 2018-2019 Volvo – Michael Flayss, XC90 Polestar will appear next year with a series of updates.

Flayss also said that will be released two new crossover version of Polestar 2018-2019 Volvo: diesel and gasoline engines. The first – the D5, power 222 HP, the second – is based on the four T6 turbo power 316 hp, but the hybrid 400 – strong T8, the power of the new engine will be somewhere between these two figures, it is possible to calculate 360 hp, which is quite impressive for a 4-cylinder engine.

Of course, the Polestar racing guru can not be limited only to the engine tuning, both versions will be equipped with an updated set of aerodynamics, suspension, brakes, etc.

Such power HS90, of course, is not enough to stand on a par with the BMW X5 M and Mercedes GL63 AMG, the power of which exceeds 550 hp, but, on the other hand, they are turbocharged V8 consume more fuel.
