De­sign news from Volvo

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

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.”
