Volvo rust DRIVe modellen uit met R-Design

Volvo C30 R-Design
Volgens Volvo valt milieuvriendelijkheid te rijmen met sportieve looks, de Volvo C30, S40 en V50 DRIVe zijn nu beschikbaar met R-Design pakket.

Milieuvriendelijkheid hoeft volgens Volvo niet gelinkt te worden aan saai en braaf. Integendeel, Volvo zorgt voor een optioneel sportpakket voor zijn milieuvriendelijke DRIVe modellen. De Volvo C30, S40 en V50 DRIVe beschikken allen over een 1.6 dieselmotor (105 Pk/240 Nm) met een CO2-uitstoot van 119 gram/km en een verbruik van 4,5 liter per 100 kilometer.

En nu zijn deze milieuvriendelijke Volvos ook beschikbaar met een R-Design pakket, zo’n pakket bevat aan de buitenkant sportieve bumpers, voor- en achterspoilers en sportieve velgen. Binnenin is er plaats voor een lederen sportstuur, sportpedalen, een lederen versnellingspook en lederen zetels met geborduurd R-Design logo. Het chassis is daarnaast 10 mm verlaagd, dit zorgt voor een lager verbruik en een verbeterde wegligging.

Volvo C30, S40 and V50 DRIVe gain extra attitude with R-Design

Having good environmental properties doesn’t mean a car has to be boring. Quite the contrary: with R-Design, the Volvo C30, S40 and V50 DRIVe can be styled just as expressively and exclusively as the other model variants.

Responding to the substantial demand for cars that combine good environmental properties with exciting design features, Volvo Cars is now offering the C30, S40 and V50 DRIVe models with optional R-Design features.

This development has been made possible by the continued optimisation of the cars’ drivelines. The new C30, S40 and V50 1.6D DRIVe all beat the 120g CO2/km limit (119 g for all three models) – even without the previous exterior modifications designed to cut air drag, such as special body and underbody panels and spoilers.

“We’ve succeeded in reducing the fuel consumption and CO2 levels of these DRIVe models by more than we initially believed possible. This has created sufficient margin to equip the cars with the R-Design package and still beat the 120g/km emission limit in all models,” explains Magnus Jonsson, Senior Vice President, Product Development at Volvo Cars.

R-Design for C30, S40 and V50 DRIVe

The R-Design package allows customers to choose between 10 body colours and it also includes a number of specially designed exterior and interior details.


Body kit with front and rear spoilers, lower door trim and side-skirts
Roof spoiler on the C30 and V50 and lip spoiler on the boot of the S40
90 mm sports tailpipe, C30 only
17-inch five-spoke Serapis aluminium wheels
Grille and door mirror housings in silk metal finish

Upholstery with seating surfaces in cream-coloured leather, sides in off-black Flex-Tec and embossed R-Design logo in the front seats
R-Design centre stack and panel inlays
Gear lever knob trimmed in leather and aluminium
Sports pedals in aluminium, with inlaid rubber strips
Sports steering wheel trimmed in leather, with R-Design emblem
Blue instrument dials for speedometer and tachometer
Textile floor mats with contrasting edging
At the front there are special DRIVe wind deflectors and an additional R-Design badge, and at the rear the DRIVe badge announces the car’s low emission levels.

The chassis is 10 mm lower. The lower ground clearance reduces fuel consumption at the same time as the chassis setting generates more direct road feel and more responsive steering.

DRIVe – the cars with the best environmental performance

Volvo’s DRIVe badge is attached to cars that offer the very best environmental performance in their class. All today’s DRIVe models are equipped with a conventional diesel engine and manual gearbox optimised for extra-low fuel consumption.

Model Engine Power CO2 Fuel consumption
C30 1.6D 109/240 Hp/Nm 119 g 4.5 l/100km
S40 1.6D 109/240 Hp/Nm 119 g 4.5 l/100km
V50 1.6D 109/240 Hp/Nm 119 g 4.5 l/100km
