Volvo has announced its R-Design styling pack has been extended to include the XC90 and V70 range.

 

The optional R-Design pack adds both exterior and interior features to enhance the performance appeal of the Volvo range.

The new Volvo V70 T6 R-Design gains 18-inch Cratus alloy wheels and lowered, sports-tuned suspension comprising higher-rated anti-roll bars and bushings.

A colour-match rear spoiler, matte satin finish grille and exterior mirrors and 90 mm chrome exhaust pipes complete the look on the outside.

“The possibility of tailoring one’s car to suit personal tastes is becoming increasingly important to car buyers today. R-Design has been developed for buyers who want a sporty look for their cars,” said Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service for Volvo Cars Gerry Keaney.

Inside, the R-Design package adds extra side bolstering to the two-tone sports leather seats, leather-rimmed R-Design steering wheel, new instruments with blue inserts, a sports shift lever and aluminium trim highlight.

The expansion of the R-Design package to the XC90 range will also see it replace the XC90 V8 Sport in showrooms.

The XC90 V8 R-Design is fitted with Volvo’s Dynaudio Premium Sound system, comprising 12 speakers and a six-stack CD player, Bi-Xenon headlights with washers, Auto Dim rear view mirror, Rain Sensor wipers and the Interior Air Quality System (IAQS).
