Just walking up to the new car from the Swedish car giant will have many car lovers in a state of awe.
This is thanks in no small part to the silk-metal framed high-gloss grille that almost makes the car smile, and is accentuated by a re-profiled front bumper and sleek day running headlamps.
Keep on walking around the Volvo V40 R-Design and motorists will be able to marvel at an ironstone rear diffuser, five-spoke diamond-cut tyres and the fact that the whole exterior is finished in style with silk-metal details.
Comfort is key when stepping into the V40 R-Design, with the seats created using a mix of black Nubuck fabric and perforated leather, though full leather seats are also an option.
A wide range of engine options are also on offer for the newest Volvo car to hit the market, starting with a D2 diesel motor capable of producing 115bhp and working all the way up to T5 petrol turbo that can enable the vehicle to boast a roaring 254bhp.
This is only the tip of the iceberg where choice is concerned though. Drivers who upgrade to the V40 R-Design Lux can also be entertained with such additional features as active bending xenon headlights with headlight cleaning system, keyless start technology and embossed full leather-faced upholstery.
Lex Kerssemakers, senior vice president of product strategy and vehicle line management at Volvo Car Corporation, summed up by saying: "The V40 R-Design is designed around the performance minded individual with a passion for those things that add extra spice to life. The meticulous attention to detail covers the expressive design as well as the agile, precise performance."
