I caved, the amenities and allure of sweet sweet Volvo luxury won out and we bought a stupidly expensive vehicle to replace the downright utilitarian by comparison Jeep. Meet our yet to be named swedish meatball.


This vehicle is a 2019 XC90 T6 Inscription with Polestar tuning. There is a model above it, I don’t think it matters as this has everything outside of the crystal shift knob, including:

  • Luxury Package
  • 4 Corner Air Suspension W/Four-C Active Chasis
  • Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound
  • 21 inch 8-Spoke Silver Bright Diamond Cut wheels
  • Heated Steering Wheel & Rear Seats
  • Grocery bag holder
  • 2nd Row Integrated Center Booster Cushion
  • Advance Package

Out of all of that needless goody bag of options the $3200 stereo really takes the needless opulence cake. The lux package including massaging seats is a nice touch.


The 325HP and 354lb/ft of torque really make things fun via Polestar’s tuning prowess.

I’m personally looking forward to the driver assistance features the most but really oh god what I have I done to my checkbook...
