VOLVO HAS taken the wraps off its sporty R-Design variant of the ever-popular XC60 crossover, and it's far from being just another styling package.

The body is now stiffer and the dampers have been revalved to firm up the ride. Furthermore, the steering ratio has been tightened up to improve steering response and help drivers feel more connected to the road.

Roadholding is also enhanced by a set of 18-inch alloy wheels that are unique to the R-Design package, however those with a craving for more bling are catered for by a 20-inch set of the same design.

Aesthetics are further improved by colour-coded lower body panels, matte-silver exterior trim, twin chrome tailpipes and silver wing-mirror housings.

The R-Design pack also features a number of interior enhancements, with aluminium inserts on the dash, doors and steering wheel sprucing up the XC60's cabin.

Alloy pedals and a more supportive seat design reinforce the R-Design package's sporty theme.

The R-Design pack will be available as an optional extra across the XC60 range, with the new trim level slated to make its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The XC60 R-Design is expected to become available in Australia in late 2009, however pricing and local specifications have yet to be announced.
