Built more like a comfort SUV, the current Volvo XC90 wants to show UK customers that it can also be a sporty choice for some of its clients. To do that, Volvo is introducing the new XC90 R-Design, the sportiest looking and feeling XC90 of current times. The car features a long list of of design and dynamic improvements. 

Looking from outside, the car has 20 inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, silver-effect door mirrors, gloss black mesh front grille and tinted rear windows. Inside, there are 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.

R-Design XC90s also get a powered front passenger seat with memory function (to match the driver’s seat), sports pedals, black headlining and upgraded interior lighting. There’s even an exclusive R-Design leather-clad remote key fob.

R-Design models come with Drive Mode Settings and Adjustable Steering Force as standard, too, which allow you to choose between different settings for the engine, transmission, steering and the optional air suspension.

The new Volvo R-Design versions are available with the D5 diesel and T6 petrol Drive-E engines, and in T8 Twin Engine petrol-electric hybrid form. Prices of the XC90 R-Design start at £49,785.
