New R Design trim for Volvo S60 and V60
Available with every engine from the two ranges, from the 161bhp D3 diesel to the 300bhp T6 petrol, R Design changes both the looks and the dynamics of the Volvos.
A stiffened body, faster-reacting dampers and stiffer springs aim to make the car more responsive and fun to drive.
More aggressive bodywork, unique 18-inch wheels and rear diffuser mark the car apart from the outside, while in the cabin buyers will get a special steering wheel, gear lever, sports pedals and floor mats. There's a choice of black and white interior or an all-black option with contrasting stitching.
R Design will cost slightly more than SE versions of the car which suggests a starting price of about £26,000 for an D3 S60. Cars are available to order now, although first deliveries aren't expected until the end of the year or early in 2011.
