GOTHENBURG, Sweden - June 22, 2016: Central to the S90 and V90 R-Design is an advanced sport chassis that delivers an energetic, road-hugging drive.

"R-Design delivers an edge to our elegant estate and sedan models in our 90 Series, with a winning combination of a sportier, more responsive, drive with clearly visible performance styling," said Björn Annwall, Senior Vice President Marketing Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Cars.
