Volvo has added an extra layer of sportiness to its extremely handsome new Volvo S90 and V90 with the R-Design trim package.

That sportiness consists of a front spoiler with integrated foglights, model-specific front grille, piano black trim to the front and rear and a set of five-spoke diamond-cut wheels in matt black. The overall effect is pleasingly subtle.

The interior features ‘deco’ trim, an upgraded lighting package, sports steering wheel and sports seats.

To go with these baubles, the cars run on an “advanced sport chassis” delivering “an energetic, road-hugging drive.”¬†Hopefully the changes won’t detract too much from the serenity and refinement the 90 Series is noted for.

Engine choice for R-Design models hasn’t been announced yet, but is likely to mirror the rest of the 90 Series range with various 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol and diesel options.

Likewise, pricing hasn’t been announced, but expect a reasonably substantial premium over the base-model S90 and V90, which start at ¬£32,555 and ¬£34,555 respectively.
