2018 Volvo S90 R-Design Review



2018 Volvo S90 R-Design Review - "Flashy" trim degrees that don't consist of any kind of major performance-enhancing hardware hardly ever get our hearts pumping, but gosh darn it if Volvo's new R-Design trim package for the S90 and also V90 doesn't look smashing. Naturally, it aids when you begin with sedans as well as wagons as appealing as Volvo's brand-new 90-series range.



As on the Volvo XC90, the R-Design package mostly consists of aesthetic tweaks like five-spoke wheels with matte-black accents, a revised front end with a different grille treatment and also a reduced front spoiler, as well as some added littles black trim. Interior distinctions include silver "deco" trim, sport seats, and an R-Design steering wheel. It's a good upgrade that provides the already tidy designs of the S90 and V90 a more athletic appearance.

Volvo likewise claims that the R-Design models feature a "sport chassis," which implies stiffer springs as well as dampers as well as a slightly lower trip elevation (an air suspension is optional too). R-Design models don't consist of any type of powertrain tweaks, yet we agree to wager that S90 as well as V90 customers eventually will be able to combine the R-Design package with these versions' "Polestar Optimization" alternative. That plan uses a power upgrade for the T6 turbo- and also supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, together with revised transmission and throttle adjusting for much better responsiveness.

We have not yet heard U.S.-spec information on R-Design schedule, yet expect this version to be amongst the S90's trim levels when it goes on sale later this summertime. The V90 wagon, our pick of the two cars, will certainly follow the sedan by a few months on our shores, showing up at some time in early 2018.
