For buyers who want a more exclusive look, Volvo is offering refined special versions of the Volvo S80 and V70.
The Volvo S80 Executive features unique details and a very rich content to reinforce its position as the top of the line saloon for Volvo. Meanwhile the Volvo V70 R-Design provides a sportier design character to the estate car.
"Both cars are designed around the growing number of people who appreciate the possibility of tailoring their cars to suit individual tastes. The Executive version of the S80 radiates exclusive luxury while our R-Design models are developed for buyers who want an extra sporty look," says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Car Corporation.
Volvo's most exclusive model is the Volvo S80, and the Executive version has features which emphasise the Scandinavian design and sophisticated comfort of the saloon.
The executive badge of the Volvo S80 hints at the fact that it isn't a "normal" Volvo. Inside, is an instrument panel top in leather, available in espresso brown or off black. This is the first Volvo model available with this feature. Other interior features include ventilated soft leather seats with massage function, leather door panels, and integrated analogue clock on the instrument panel and aluminium centre console storage.
Extra thick carpets reinforce the luxury feel, as does the opportunity to install a fridge in the rear seat, complete with Swedish crystal glasses.
The Volvo V70 R-Design comes with interior and exterior design features specifically developed for the model.
LED turning indicators are integrated into the door mirrors with silk metal covers and a unique, diamond cut 18-inch wheel called "Ixion".
The interior features leather upholstery trimmed in off black, with leather around the gear selector and black floor mats with contrasting stitching.
The Volvo V70 R-Design is available with all drivelines, including the new 1.6 litre DRIVe diesel, with CO2 emissions of 119g/km.Published 10 May 2011
