These five key areas include, the throttle response, gearshift hold, speed, precision and performance. One of the key highlights of the optimisation is the optimisation of the gear hold function that holds the selected gear during cornering at high lateral g-forces, this means now the Volvo XC90 T8 is now not only urban rugged but even sporty.
