Design news from Volvo
Volvo has announced the RDesign specification for its latest S60 V60 models.
There are detail bodywork changes including a new nose and, alarmingly, even firmer suspension on a chassis which has already been criticised for its harshness. The R-Design has shorter and stiffer springs and firmer bushings at the rear.
Volvo says the changes make the car easier to control and reduces any tendency to lurch.
It adds: “The front tie-blade bushing, attaching the rear sub-frame to the car, is a massive 400 per cent stiffer than before.”
