Volvo Reveals Sporty S90 And V90

Volvo Cars shows their sporty side by releasing performance-inspired R-Design models of the new S90 saloon and V90 estate

Sporting a new front-end design with spoiler-integrated foglights, the R-Design models come with a unique grille and piano black trim on both the front and rear. A new five-spoke matt black diamond-cut wheel adds to the performance feel.

“R-Design delivers an edge to our elegant estate and saloon models in our 90 Series, with a winning combination of a sportier, more responsive drive with clearly visible performance styling,” said Björn Annwall, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars.

A wide range of styling cues are included on the inside: From unique deco trim, pedals and mats, to the sporty contoured seats and special steering wheel. Not forgetting a high-level interior illumination package, which Volvo claims radiates the attention to detail.

And of course, central to the S90 and V90 R-Design is an advanced sport chassis - in Volvo's words, "delivers an energetic, road-hugging drive".
