Volvo offers R-Design Sport Package on DRIVe Models

For those that would like to combine the environmental properties of the C30, S40 and V50 DRIVe models with a sporty flair, Volvo has just introduced a new R-Design sport package with various cosmetic upgrades. These include a bodykit that consists of front and rear spoilers, lower door trim, side-skirts, a roof spoiler on the C30 and V50 and lip spoiler on the boot of the S40 as well as grille and door mirror housings in silk metal finish and 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels.

Furthermore, the R-DESIGN models feature special DRIVe wind deflectors and an R-DESIGN badge at the front, while the chassis has been lowered by 10mm which not only improves handling but also helps reduce fuel consumption.

The interior carries the familiar R-DESIGN features such as a two-tone upholstery in cream leather and off black, an 'R-DESIGN' centre stack, blue instrument dials, sport aluminum pedals and a sports steering wheel trimmed in leather, with R-Design emblem.

All three DRIVe models are equipped with a 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine mated to a manual gearbox with higher gear ratios.
