Volvo dropped today the first official photos of the R-Design models of the new Volvo S90 saloon and V90 estate. The souped-up family cars get in this treatment a range of visual upgrades as well as a number of key performance upgrades designed to improve their driving characteristics.
While detailed specs of Volvo S90 and V90 R-Design will be released closer to launch in the third quarter of the year, the car makers has told us about some of the main highlights. The biggest one is an advanced sport chassis that “delivers an energetic, road-hugging drive,” while visual upgrades consist mainly of a new front-end design with spoiler-integrated foglights, unique grille and piano black trim on both the front and rear, and new five-spoke matt black diamond-cut wheel. Inside the cabin you get unique deco trim, pedals and mats, sporty contour seats and special steering wheel, including a high-level interior illumination package.
“R-Design delivers an edge to our elegant estate and saloon models in our 90 Series, with a winning combination of a sportier, more responsive drive with clearly visible performance styling,” said Bjorn Annwall, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars.
