EXPRESS YOUR SPORTY SIDE
The Volvo XC40 R-Design
Bold design, special colour options and a uniquely sporty attitude.
Designed for driving
The youthful character of the XC40 gets an even more dynamic edge with R-Design trim. The highlights are glossy black details and a roof finished in Black Stone, bigger, more dynamic alloy wheels and special interior trim. A sport chassis provides agility and responsiveness to match.

R-Design trim in detail
Design with attitude
The sportiness of the XC40 R-Design is expressed through glossy black trim for the grille, door mirrors, side windows and skid plates, and a roof in Black Stone.
With a standard sport chassis, the XC40 R-Design provides a focused, responsive drive. The optional Four-C active chassis gives you even more control.
Focused on the drive
The sporty focus continues inside, with perforated Fine Nappa Leather/Nubuck textile upholstery in Charcoal with contrasting stitching.
A powerful stance
Choose from 18-inch, 19-inch or 20-inch alloy wheels that give the XC40 R-Design a powerful stance. A distinctive diamond-cut finish creates a sharp, technical look.

The race for perfection
In this article, we visit the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard in Lisbon, Portugal. Here, we meet the team of experts responsible for repairing and re-fitting the entire fleet of Volvo Ocean 65 boats that will compete in the 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. We describe each team member’s individual area of expertise and show how the team works together to ensure that each boat is repaired identically, on time and to the highest possible standard. Their expertise in different areas represents the same level of competence you find at a Volvo workshop. We also meet Swedish sailor Martin Strömberg, who won the 2011-12 edition of the race, to find out what a great service programme gives him as a sailor.
