Volvo V40 R-Design specifications revealed

The new Volvo V40 R-Design is set to be shown off at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, though a few details of the car have made their way through the grapevines.

Just walking up to the new car from the Swedish car giant will have many car lovers in a state of awe.

This is thanks in no small part to the silk-metal framed high-gloss grille that almost makes the car smile, and is accentuated by a re-profiled front bumper and sleek day running headlamps.

Keep on walking around the Volvo V40 R-Design and motorists will be able to marvel at an ironstone rear diffuser, five-spoke diamond-cut tyres and the fact that the whole exterior is finished in style with silk-metal details.

Comfort is key when stepping into the V40 R-Design, with the seats created using a mix of black Nubuck fabric and perforated leather, though full leather seats are also an option.

A wide range of engine options are also on offer for the newest Volvo car to hit the market, starting with a D2 diesel motor capable of producing 115bhp and working all the way up to T5 petrol turbo that can enable the vehicle to boast a roaring 254bhp.

This is only the tip of the iceberg where choice is concerned though. Drivers who upgrade to the V40 R-Design Lux can also be entertained with such additional features as active bending xenon headlights with headlight cleaning system, keyless start technology and embossed full leather-faced upholstery.

Lex Kerssemakers, senior vice president of product strategy and vehicle line management at Volvo Car Corporation, summed up by saying: "The V40 R-Design is designed around the performance minded individual with a passion for those things that add extra spice to life. The meticulous attention to detail covers the expressive design as well as the agile, precise performance."

Orders for the Volvo V40 R-Design will be taken from next month, with deliveries of the stylish vehicle expected to begin sometime during January 2013.
