Just being pedantic.
Pedantically correct! Should have said the 340 HP engine is better than any of the non-S 2018 models. (and inferior to the S!)

Very happy with my 17 Prestige 35t

The I4 turbo or turbo/supercharged engines are the reason I left Volvo behind. That's all they offer now in any of their cars/SUVs and while they provide "sufficient power" on paper, the driving dynamics are hideous. They don't sound good, they don't actually get great gas mileage, and they are uninspiring unless you're pushing them. That's not what I want in a vehicle. I don't mind companies offering it as the base option, but not as my only choice in engines. Give me the option for a 6cyl or a V8, and I'll go with that every time.


Congrats on the purchase. I think you did the right thing and will be very happy with the V6. I LOVE mine!!!

In all honestly I would have probably gone for a Volvo XC90 when I was looking for something to replace the last car and I really like the crisp angular styling that the current Volvos have, but the lack of anything bigger than a 2L 4 cylinder just ruled them out. I guess a legacy of safety first, but an XC90 with a V8 would be pretty amazing as the SVR demonstrates.

I love my 35t. Having said that,when I put Velocity Tune in.....Jesus!! it was just awesome, and 5 months later it still is. 80 extra Hp is phenomenal and although it's an SUV, when you want to put it in Dynamic when you get on the hwy, drive down a country rd, its remarkable how different the car pulls. Highly recommend.

I was comparing the XC60 when I chose my S. The engine was definitely a factor, but I had considered getting the Polestar engine upgrade that brought the bhp up a chunk and at comparable pricing too.

You could never get a definitive answer as to how Polestar affected the output of their newer I4 engines because it really didn't increase it. It changed shift patterns and behavior of the power delivery, but didn't give much more. Total rip off. I had the Polestar tune in my 2012 XC70 T6, it made a HUGE difference, but not anymore. And then they stopped doing Polestar tuning on their cars altogether.

The V6 in these cars is phenomenal. I put a chiptuner in (not an ECU flash), and the performance with that is even better than stock, which was amazing to begin with. Just an amazing all around vehicle, and so happy with my choice over 2 years ago.
