2008 Volvo XC90 R-Design

Volvo Cars’ R-design programme - a sporty factory-fitted option package - is now also available for the Volvo XC90. R-design is tailor made for customers who want a car with refined attributes.

"The possibility of tailoring one’s car to suit personal tastes is becoming increasingly important to car buyers today. R-design has been developed for buyers who want a refined and sporty look for their cars," says Gerry Keaney, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars.

The R-design package for the Volvo XC90 is an extension of the XC90 Sport version that was introduced in the end of 2006. New R-design features are the optional 20-inch wheels, the dual exhaust pipes, a unique skid-plate and the R-design badges in the grille, on the steering wheel and on the seats as well as rear-view mirror caps in silk matt finish.

Features remaining from the XC90 Sport version are:

  • Sport chassis
  • Details and trim in a silk-matt finish rather than the standard chrome.
  • Unique sill mouldings in brushed stainless steel.
  • Sport steering wheel and gear selector of perforated leather and sports seats with additional lateral cushioning to support the driver, even in faster cornering.
  • Seats with a combination of two different grades of leather, enhanced by décor piping in different colour shades.
  • Instrument dials with metal chronograph watch-style faces and a shimmering blue lustre.
  • Sport carpets with accent-coloured décor piping.

To accentuate the sporty nature and create a sleeker appearance, the vehicle is not fitted with roof rails - although they will be available as an option for customers who need them.

XC90 is the perfect family vehicle for it has a very spacious interior. However, I find it boring on that, if only they add some interesting technology on it.

I just only love the color of this car and front end of it other than that is not really impressive at all. I wonder what’s the price for this kind of car, I just hope that it is not too pricey because it didn’t suit for it.

It is not ugly at all for me, still had an appeal! I simply like this one for being so practical to use in everyday transportation and a very reliable road car.

I’m getting bored on the design of the Volvo! I think there styling is regardless! And they are not offering any advanced feature on their car. 

which reminds me, that I must finish my manuscript; "The Complete History of Vehicular Roof Racks".
