Of all the European premium automakers, Volvo arguably doesn't come across as the sportiest. Safe and well engineered, sure. But not quite as aggressive as a Mercedes AMG or BMW M, for example. Well the new R-Design models of the S60 sedan and V60 wagon ought to help clear up that problem.
The R-Design specification injects the S60 and V60 with some extra attitude, courtesy of a new front bumper, bigger wheels and sporty interior trim. But that's not the end of it. Although the engine hasn't been modified, a sport suspension and torque-vectoring traction control system promise to improve handling.
