Volvo announces 23 hp upgrade for C30, C70 and S40 models for $1,295

Volvo Cars of North America (VCNA) announced that factory-authorized performance tuning software will be available for the first time on several Volvo models that will start to be offered at nationwide Volvo retailers next week. Tuning software was developed by Polestar (Volvo's Swedish-based performance partner) for C30, C70 and S40 carlines that come with a T5 engine, with model year 2008 or newer. This tuning package has an MSRP of $1,295 and will start selling on Nov. 14. It boosts the torque of the respective models by 23 hp and 29 lb.-ft. of torque.

The increase in power is made possible by increasing the airflow into the combustion chambers and advancing spark timing.

Since 1996, Polestar has been the official partner of Volvo Car Corp. Polestar had been enhancing cars for racing for many years but it is now focusing on the U.S. market. The power and torque are optimized without having an effect on fuel consumption.
