Spirited luxury

The Volvo that has redefined the modern luxury car, the S90, is now available in a new, performance-inspired variant.

Elegant performance; dynamic luxury. Both descriptions are apt for the Volvo S90 T6 R-Design that injects an even sportier spirit into the car that has redefined the modern luxury sedan.

The R-Design expands our S90 line-up, joining the lavish Inscription and exclusive Momentum variants.

The performance-inspired S90 T6 R-Design is designed for discerning drivers who appreciate the thrill of a great road as much as the satisfaction of relaxing refinement.

An advanced sport chassis combines a tauter suspension, lowered ride height, and retuned steering for sharper vehicle responses and road-hugging ability. All-wheel drive adds another layer of confidence-inspiring assurance.

R-Design’s contour seats perfectly balance comfort and support, while paddle-shift levers provide the driver with the option to interact directly with the T6 powertrain that matches a powerful turbocharged and supercharged engine with an intuitive eight-speed Geartronic transmission.

The T6 delivers exciting power at higher revs, while maximum torque of 400Nm ensures rewarding driveability for your everyday drive. Yet despite the S90 T6 R-Design’s ability to accelerate from standstill to 100km/h in just 5.9 seconds, there’s no cost to efficiency. Fuel consumption is rated at just 7.5 litres per 100km.

And there is a Drive Mode system that allows you to match the vehicle’s settings to your mood or desires. Eco mode helps maximise fuel efficiency, Comfort is programmed for the most relaxing drive, and Dynamic introduces more rapid engine and gearbox responses. You can also create a mixture of settings via the Individual mode.

Naturally, the sporty S90 variant looks purposeful both inside and out.

The cabin features carbon fibre décor inlays, perforated leather for the steering wheel and gearlever, sports pedals, and a charcoal rooflining.

Highlights for the performance-focused exterior styling include five-spoke, 19-inch matt-black diamond-cut alloy wheels, foglights integrated into the front spoiler, high-gloss black mesh grille, matt-silver door handles, and twin integrated exhaust pipes.

The Volvo S90 T6 R-Design is an invitation to get in and drive. If you are interested in accepting, head to your nearest Volvo showroom.

I Roll

Volvo is Latin for 'I roll' and was originally trademarked in 1915 with ball bearing production in mind. But 18 million cars later, Volvo has come to mean much more. 

Volvo started making cars in 1927 because we believed nobody else was making them strong enough or safe enough for Swedish roads. Along the way we’ve come up with dozens of innovations, some of which have changed the world. And it’s this proud history that continues our drive forward to the next great Volvo Cars idea.
