Volvo Swedish carmaker revealed the all-new Volvo V90 sedan and wagon variants early last year, with both also getting a special and exquisite treatment in the shape of the R-Design Package. Now, the V90 R-Design has been announced for the United States market for $49,950.
Even if wagons are not very loved in the US, they are preferred on the Old Continent for their practicality and everyday use, so perhaps this model will entice the Americans` taste for such a lovely wagon. Speaking about its design, Bjorn Annwall, Senior Vice President at Volvo Cars, stated:
“R-Design delivers an edge to our elegant estate and saloon models in our 90 Series, with a winning combination of a sportier, more responsive drive with clearly visible performance styling.”
Besides the gorgeous design highlighted by the sport chassis which ”delivers an energetic, road-hugging drive”, the 2017 Volvo V90 R-Design is extremely appealing with the new front-end style with spoiler-integrated foglights, bespoke grille and the five-spoke matt black diamond-cut wheels.
Inside, the cabin is also exclusive with the R-Design trim all-around, Nappa leather and wood trim, adding a deco-feel with sports features on the seats and steering wheel. The high-tech amenities include 12-inch Sensus Connect Touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Blind Spot Information System and wide choice of safety features – adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection and much more.
Under the hood, the 2017 Volvo V90 R-Design comes with a wide range of engines, like a T5 FWD, turbo-charged Drive-E pot, as well as a T6 AWD turbo-charged engine.
