The 2013, Volvo XC60 was the second best-selling model sold by the Swedish manufacturer. Providing entry level luxury and utilitarian usage; the XC60 seems like a better option that the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLK. This specific example isn’t just any XC60, it’s an R-Design. Volvo R-Design models are meant to recapture the thrill of driving, with packages that offer attractive styling touches such as upgraded front and rear fascia, frameless grill, a finned rear diffuser, and R-Design tailpipe.
The XC60 R-Design does not only boast styling. It has stiffer suspension and dampeners, as well as a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 that delivers 324 horsepower and 354 lb. ft. of torque at 3,000 rpm. Connected to this, the most potent in the XC60 lineup, is a 6-speed automatic with paddle-shifters, along with standard all-wheel-drive.
The interior of the Volvo has numerous “R-Design” badges to assure you that this is no ordinary XC60. Racing inspired bucket seats hold you in on windy roads, but are still comfortable enough for a long road trip. There is plenty of cargo space out back, with an all season mat that invites rugged use.
There are a plethora of features in the XC60 that make sure you are comfortable and safe on the road. The blind spot monitoring system is very active without being too overbearing while driving. There are parking sensors in the front and rear both, with a back up camera that includes guiding lines as well. Bluetooth hands-free calling, Harman Kardon sound, navigation, and internet capability make sure you are connected with everything you need. Cold outside? What sports luxury SUV would be complete without heated seats.
