VOLVO has revealed performance-inspired R-Design models of its new S90 saloon and V90 estate flagship models.
Central to the S90 and V90 R-Design is an advanced sport chassis that delivers an energetic, road-hugging drive.
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 the front and rear.
A new five-spoke matt black diamond-cut wheel adds to the performance feel.
A wide range 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.
"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, Volvo's senior vice-president of marketing, sales and customer service.
