Volvo is now offering the R-Design treatment for the recently facelifted 2014 S60, V60 and XC60.
These variants are offered with the same engines as the standard models but bring some styling changes both inside and out. For example, all three have a different front fascia with a more expressive nose and a matte black grill with high gloss black stripes. In the outer corners there are daytime running lights, while the grille is adorned by an R-designed emblem and a silk metal diagonal. The back brings R-specific tailpipes and a bespoke diffuser with aero fins.
Moving inside, we find new sport seats fitted as standard on all three models and these have a black Nubuck textile and perforated leather finish with an embroidered R-design logo. Optionally available are full leather seats which are offered as standard on the R-Design Lux models.
The R-Design Sport chassis is 15mm lowered and has a 15 percent higher stiffness compared to the dynamic chassis of the S60 and V60. These two have monotube dampers, stiffer bushings and a strut brace. The chassis of the XC60 is also stiffer and comes with tuned shock absorbers and anti-roll bars for a sportier drive.
