Manufacturers know that sport sells, and buyers wanting a racier look for their new car are well catered for. While some makers hang their sport trims on the coat tails of performance models,
Volvo hasn’t got that luxury. But that doesn’t stop it from offering its sporty R-Design trim across the range, including on the new Volvo XC90 SUV.
Like other R-Design models in the line-up, the XC90 gets unique styling touches inside and out. There are matt-silver wing mirrors, a subtle bodykit, a gloss-black grille and matt trim around the grille and windows.
You also get a set of 20-inch alloys wrapped in low-profile tyres, while full LED headlamps are still a talking point of the design. The result is an imposing SUV, especially in vivid Passion Red paint – exclusive to R-Design trim.
