New Volvo V60, S60 & XC60 R-Design with Polestar Performance options

Wed, 27 Mar 2013

Volvo has revealed new R-Design versions of the V60, S60 and XC60 with R-Design body, lowered suspension and the option of Polestar Performance.

All three R-Design models get a new nose with a frameless Tech Matte Black grill, a silk metal R-Design logo, DRL lights on the corners, redesigned front wheel arches, rear diffuser and R-design tailpipes.

Inside, the R-Design Volvos get sports seats covered in Nubuck textile and perforated leather, Adaptive Digital Display that offers three different configurations - Elegance, Eco and Performance – contrast stitching, stainless steel tread plates and R-Design logos.

You can have the R-Design option with any of Volvo’s existing engine options, from the D2 to the T6, and if you opt for the T6 you can also opt for a Polestar Performance Pack that delivers 329bhp, good enough for a 5.9 second 0-062mph in the S60, 6.0s in the V60 and 6.9s in the XC60.

Under the skin, the new R-Design Volvos have 15mm lower suspension and 15 per cent stiffer springs with monotube dampers at the back on the V60 and S60, stiffer bushings, strut brace and re-tuned anti-roll bars for a firmer and more balanced drive.

Volvo expect up to 30 per cent of UK buyers will opt for the R-design versions. We’re surprised it’s not more.
