Volvo C30 R-Design Facelift Upgraded

The Volvo C30 R-Design features a chassis that is supposed to be sharper with stiffer and more distinct properties. The highlights are actually hidden underneath the skin. Because it is the chassis and the steering that have been the main focus of attention. All these elements have as aim creating a sporty driving experience and a sophisticated feeling of comfort to match the very best. The new Volvo C30 that received a facelift from aftermarket specialist R-Design will have its first official public display at the middle of September at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The new sport chassis has made the C30 R-Design a better-balanced and more agile car. Road contact is more distinct and feedback from the wheels is faster and clearer, promoting a more alert feeling while driving and that is something that benefits safety. The most noticeable design change is an all-new body kit featuring a redesigned front and rear. The new C30 R-Design is also equipped with 5-spoke Cratus wheels, just like the rest of the R-Design range. The interior is available with dramatic new black upholstery as an alternative. The R-Design package offers customers the opportunity of choosing between seven exterior body-colors and offers a range of specially designed exterior and interior details. For the exterior, the tuning specialists offered the R-Design badge in the grille, grille and door mirror housings in special silk metal finish, tailgate spoiler and visible chrome-plated sports tailpipes. The power is being sent to the road through new 17-inch 5-spoke Cratus aluminum wheels. For the interior, the tuners offered textile floor mats with contrasting piping, blue speedometer and rev counter gauges, gear lever knob trimmed in leather and aluminum and R-Design center stack and panel inserts. The R-Design sales version has been designed for the discerning younger customer segment that is looking for a personalized car with an exclusive, sporty nature.
