Designed for the drive
A distinctive black grille, door mirror caps finished in Bright Silver, twin chrome tailpipes and a rear diffuser create a sporty, athletic feel.
The optional lowered sport chassis has been tuned for sharper handling and steering response, with less body roll through corners.
Stealth Aluminium decor inlays, Charcoal headlining and seats upholstered in part-leather give the cabin a technical, cockpit-like feel.
Unique alloy wheels are available in 17-inch, 18-inch and 19-inch sizes, giving your V40 R-Design a striking on-road presence.
