After the success of the XC90, Volvo Car UK have launched the R-Design model featuring a range of design, dynamic and equipment upgrades to give it a fresh sporty edge.

Exterior features include 20-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, silver-effect door mirrors, gloss black mesh front grille and tinted rear windows. The luxurious feel is continued throughout the interior featuring leather/nubuck sports seats, a 12.3-inch active TFT driver’s information display and a perforated leather-trimmed steering wheel complete with gearshift paddles.  In addition to the R-Desion XC90’s feature a powered front passenger seat with memory function (to match the driver’s seat), sports pedals, black headlining, upgraded interior lighting and an exclusive R-Design leather-clad remote key fob.

Alongside the generous standard specification of entry-level XC90 Momentum models, the R-Design models come with Drive Mode Settings and Adjustable Steering Force as standard. The model also features standard safety equipment including City Safety (which features pedestrian and cyclist detection, and front collision warning with full auto brake), driver alert control with lane departure warning, and front, side and full-length curtain airbags.

R-Design versions are available with the D5 diesel and T6 petrol Drive-E engines, and in T8 Twin Engine petrol-electric hybrid form.

Nick Connor, Managing Director of Volvo Car UK, said: “The launch of the XC90 R-Design makes our premium seven-seat SUV even more distinctive and dynamic than before. Its sportier looks certainly make it stand out on the road, and its extra equipment ensures that the interior is as luxurious as it is stunning.”

Prices of the XC90 R-Design start at £49,785 OTR.
