The S90 and V90 R-Design! Volvo's Performance Line
There’s always that fine-line available that most people desire. They won’t go full bonkers nor they like to be the lamers. Automakers knows that fine-line and it’s the performance inspired line that defines the best of the both world. Audi calls it S-Line, Ford now has it as ST-Line and BMW had it for long as BMW M Sport.
Volvo, known for their toughness and family hauling, also famous for racing in the icy Scandinavian mountains. Hence, its a right thing for Volvo to bring out that sport line for their fans.
R-Design, in Volvo speak, augmenting the performance on the sleek S90 sedans and V90 station-vans by adding advanced sport chassis to deliver dynamic sports inspiring drive with comfort and confidence from road-hugging traction capabilities.
“R-Design delivers an edge to our elegant estate and sedan models in our 90 Series, with a winning combination of a sportier, more responsive drive with clearly visible performance styling,” said Björn Annwall, Senior Vice President Marketing Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars.
The R-Design package will be the most comprehensive in terms of design details inside-out. Sporting a new front-end design with spoiler-integrated fog lights, the R-Design models come with a unique grille and piano black trim on both front and rear. A new 5-spoke matt black diamond-cut wheel adds to the performance feel.
A variety of styling cues are included on the inside – from unique deco trim, pedals and mats, to the sporty contour seats and special steering wheel, including a high level interior illumination package that radiates attention to detail.
What about crucial bits? Well even though the Volvo confirmed that the order books are now ready to be filled they think its too early to reveal the numbers and figures indicating the engine performance and finer details.
