The S80 Executive mentioned previously is one of two special versions Volvo has just come up with, and here’s the other – the V70 R-Design, which has been developed for buyers who want an extra sporty look.

No change in the mechanicals or running gear with this one, but there are a number of specially-developed exterior and interior design details. The exterior features unique design cues in the front, and comes equipped with LED turn indicators integrated into the door mirrors with silk metal covers as well as a unique, diamond-cut 18-inch wheel called Ixion.

Inside, the car gets leather upholstery trimmed completely in off-black, with leather around the gear selector and black floor-mats with contrasting stitching being associated elements. The vehicle also features the Volvo Sensus infotainment system, which comes with a five-inch or seven-inch colour screen located in the upper part of the centre stack.

The R-Design package is available across all V70 drivelines, including the newly-launched 1.6 litre DRIVe diesel version.
