Volvo R-DESIGN Package

The 2007 Volvo R-DESIGN Package has been introduced for all new Volvo C30, S40 and V50 models, offering a wide range of unique sports-inspired interior and exterior details to the Sport and SE Sport variants. With the production scheduled to start in September, the cars are going to hit the UK showrooms in October. The refined exterior design adds a special look to the car, due to the R-DESIGN badge in the front grille, the unique five spoke 17" alloy wheels for Sport models and 18" alloy wheels for SE Sport as well as the rear roof spoiler together with wing mirrors and silver matte finish front grille. The exterior matches the interior, which is highly stylish and refined, offering the driver and passengers comfort and enjoyment thanks to its leather-trimmed steering wheel with R-DESIGN logo, blue instrument dials, sports pedals, a unique aluminium R-DESIGN centre stack and tufted dark floormats with cream leather seams. The SE Sport beautifully combines R-DESIGN styling with luxury SE features, while the Sport specification offers the pure R-DESIGN package.
