This Is What The R-Design Treatment Brings To The Volvo V60

Volvo is bringing the R-Design treatment to its 2019 Volvo V60 wagon, making it the top-tier trim for the lineup. The R-Design treatment will also enhance the wagon’s performance and will provide a sportier exterior look for the car.

The R in R-Design stands for “refined” and it is Volvo’s range-topping performance trim. If you want to shell out for the R-Design trim, the price starts at $46,558.

The Volvo V60’s angular grille lost its chromed vertical blade-like element for the V60 R. In its place is a different design wrapped in glossy black with the central air intake in the nose protruding struts that connect to the protruding lower lip. The whole theme verges on the car being completely blacked out. This was made possible by the side intakes that are now without their shiny bits.

The profile is finished by bigger 18-inch alloy wheels with a diamond-cut finish. There are also black door mirror housings, window frames, integrated roof rails, and twin tailpipe surrounds. If you want the 19-inch alloy wheels, you need to go for the R-Design Plus package which adds another interesting feature—dark-tinted rear windows.

Inside, the R-Design has proper bucket seats with cushion extensions and multi-directional lumbar support. The steering wheel, the gear stick, and the pedals are all sporty, though they could not compete with a Honda Civic Type R. The technology involved are the two-zone climate control, automatic headlights with the active high beam, 12.3-inch driver’s information display, and a powered tailgate.

In terms of performance, the R-Design brought in a stiffer and more responsive chassis. The suspension is stronger because of the stiffer spring and the anti-roll bars have been thickened.

We will wait for Polestar to tweak with the engine options but for now, let’s be contented with two diesel engines—one that can make 150 horsepower and the other one can produce 190 horsepower. There’s also the T5 gas engine that can churn out 250 horsepower.
