"These S60 R-Design has been specially developed for buyers who want to put their very own stamp on their car. And with R-Design, we are attracting a younger target group. We expect that 10 percent of all S60 customers will choose the R-Design option. We aim to win over one-third of these customers from competing brands," says Magnus Jonsson, Senior Vice President Product Development at Volvo Cars.

Volvo Cars' chassis experts have taken the next step on the road to a more and more exciting driving experience. "In the R-Design chassis we've sharpened the steering, the agility and the solid overall impression still further compared with the dynamic chassis in the all-new S60," says Stefan Sällqvist, manager of vehicle dynamics at Volvo Cars.

Redesigned Front

The all-new Volvo S60 R-Design comes with a range of specially developed design details both outside and in.

On the outside the cars have an imposing redesigned front with a grille painted in glossy piano black. The sporty stance is further enhanced with color-matched body components, details in matte finish and a hexagonal pattern that is repeated both front and rear. Distinctive twin exhaust tailpipes and unique five-spoke 18-inch Diamond cut wheels emphasize the sporty overall appeal.

The introductory color is Passion Red but the Volvo S60 R-design is also available in choice of another seven colors.

Sports Seats

On the inside, the driver and front passenger sit in sports seats in which the backrest from the S60 is matched by an all-new seat cushion with even closer side support than before.
"The seat cushion shapes itself to the occupant's body but is nonetheless firm, thanks to a combination of two layers each with a different degree of hardness. As a result, drivers of different sizes all enjoy the same excellent side support," explains Magnus Jonsson.
