As if the standard versions weren't already hugely appealing.
Volvo introduced the R-Design package for the XC90 more than a year ago and now time has come for the other two SPA-based models to receive the same treatment. The S90 sedan and V90 wagon are available on order starting today with an optional “performance-inspired” R-Design kit which brings a sportier chassis setup to enable both midsize models provide an “energetic, road-hugging drive.”
The Volvo duo also gets a sportier yet subtle body kit with the fog lights integrated in the front spoiler and a slightly different appearance for the grille. Piano black trim adorns both the front and rear while rounding off the exterior tweaks are the fresh five-spoke diamond-cut wheels featuring a matte black appearance.
Stepping inside the cabin, the Volvo S90 and V90 in R-Design configuration benefit from new deco trim and different pedals. The cars also receive sporty contour seats and an exclusive steering wheel along with new floor mats and an illumination package created specifically for this version.
Volvo is already taking orders for the S90 and V90 in the sportier R-Design flavor. There’s no word about how much it costs, but to get an idea about what to expect, we should mention for the T5 FWD XC90 it’s an extra $5,400. In the T6 AWD XC90 it cost $4,000 more than the standard version while for the beefier T8 Twin Engine XC90 model the Swedes are asking an additional $1,900.
