If you've been considering a new Volvo you've probably seen the R-Design label tossed about, but what does that mean and how can it improve your San Diego driving experience? Read on to learn about Volvo sporty design concepts and see which vehicles at Volvo Cars San Diego currently carry the R-Design label.

A Thrilling Concept

Volvo R-Design models are meant to recapture the thrill of driving, with packages that offer attractive styling touches such as upgraded front and rear fascia, frameless grill, a finned rear diffuser, and R-Design tailpipe. This exterior retooling improves not just the look of the vehicle, but also the way it handles by reduces the coefficient of drag for better fuel efficiency and a more responsive driving experience. The R-Design sport chassis is improved too, designed to be stiffer with firmer rear dampers and front bushings that give the vehicle a more balanced performance driving feel.

The R-Design benefits don't end there, though. Volvo has extended the design concept to the interior of the vehicle as well with standard sport seats, available perforated leather seating, and special exclusive badging and vehicle detailing that make the Volvo R-Line as pleasing inside as it is out.
