What Performance Trims Does the Volvo Lineup Offer?

R-Design Performance

The "R" in R-Design stands for Refined, indicating power, performance, and athletic styling and designs. The R-Design symbol also denotes increased fuel economy, thanks to the standard-equipped mild-hybrid engine that makes 247 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque that gets a driving range of over 560 miles on highway driving.

For the Volvo S60 sedan, V60 wagon, and XC60 SUV models, a new Polestar Engineered Recharge powertrain is available that gets exceptional performance upgrades. In addition to creating 415 horsepower and 494 pound-feet of torque, the Polestar Engineered engine gets up to 41 mpg or in pure-electric mode, focusing on six things:

  • Recalibrated throttle response for enhanced acceleration and feedback
  • Faster off-throttle response for greater control
  • Increased gearshift speed for faster acceleration
  • Optimized gearshift precision and gear hold for agile and precise driving
  • Improved engine performance in the mid-range powerband
  • Enhanced all-wheel-drive torque distribution that creates improved traction and cornering control
