R-Design trim in detail
Strong by design
R-Design trim gives the XC60 an imposing presence, with glossy black exterior details, bold alloy wheel designs and integrated tail pipes.
Focused on driving
The XC60 R-Design is built for driving. Stiffer springs and shock absorbers provide even sharper handling, while steering wheel-mounted gearshifters keep you connected to the action.
In the driver’s seat
Contour seats in perforated Nappa leather/Nubuck textile upholstery set the tone for a true driver’s car, and provide exceptional support.
Wheels of distinction
A choice of diamond-cut alloy wheels, in 19-inch or 21-inch sizes, and finished in our characteristic diamond-cut, gives the XC60 a bold look.

The race to the horizon
The fascinating background and history of the Volvo Ocean Race have turned it into one of the best-known and toughest endurance races in the sporting calendar. For four and a half decades, participants have challenging themselves and each other as they sail its course. In this article, we will trace the race back to its beginning - and beyond, looking at the developments that shaped modern sea travel and made it possible in the first place. We trace the history of the race all the way back to the opening of the Panama and Suez canals, and then how - decades later - Robin Knox-Johnson became the first man to sail single-handedly round the planet. We then describe the foundation of the race in the 70s, and the developments that turned it into the event we know today - with its cutting-edge boats, teams of world champion sailors and non-stop coverage.
