The sportiest version of the Volvo XC90 SUV is the R-Design model, which includes the same premium level of performance, luxury and safety as the Momentum spec, wrapped in a more dynamic and athletic package. For example, the R-Design trim comprises features such as Contour Sports seats with Nubuck Leather upholstery and black headlining, which contain ergonomic Power Cushion extenders, for added thigh support. Other interior enhancements include a multi-function perforated leather steering wheel, complete with sporty gear shift paddles, and sports pedals.
The drive performance of the 2018 XC90 R-Design builds on the Momentum and Inscription models, with the incorporation of variable Drive Mode Settings, including an electric mode in the Hybrid T8 model, and off-road settings for a sportier ride. With some of the most comfortable seats in any SUV, and Volvo’s extensive safety features, the XC90 R-Design rivals the BMW X5 and Mercedes M Class for quality, at a comparable cost of around £49,300 in the diesel D5 model, and £62,900 for the flagship T8 model.
The R-Design dashboard contains a sports instrument cluster, alongside the 12.3" TFT Crystal Driver's Information Display, which replaces the normal buttons and dials with a tablet-like touch screen display. This system can display both entertainment, phone and satellite navigation information, adding to the spacious, clutter-free ambience of the XC90’s interior.
Further dynamic elements can been seen on the XC90 R-Design exterior bodywork, such as silver roof rails, metal front grille and window surrounds, and 20 inch alloy wheels. For added privacy and style, the rear windows contain tinted glass.
