The new direction of Volvo premium luxury, in combination with the drama and boldness of R-DESIGN. This is the statement made by Volvo's XC90 and S90 R-Design T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid 407hp, the Scandinavian auto maker's ushering in of a powerful new presence and dynamic attitude in R-Design form. Volvo R-Design takes the luxury and drivability of Volvo standard cars and injects an infusion of sportiness, a tough look at the kerbside and design details which give an inspired, serious edge. R-Design brings carefully refined exterior package details for a more vivid profile and presence, made even more eye-catching with the metallic finish Bursting Blue.

R-DESIGN also brings Nubuck Fine Nappa Perforated Leather for the interior, balancing the sporty exterior with a new level of sumptuous luxury for driver and occupants. With R-Design, Volvo has partnered with Harman Kardon, the audio specialists, to offer Harman Kardon Premium Sound. Both S90 and XC90 R-Design models incorporate Volvo Sensus Connect with Premium Sound by Harman Kardon (with Dolby Pro Logic II). Thirteen speakers included sub-woofer work in harmony to ensure music hangs in space beautifully, with exactly the right combination of balance, power and fidelity, creating memorable performances for your everyday enjoyment.

The Volvo XC90 R-Design was designed by Volvo's European R-DESIGN Studio to be THE luxury 7-seat SUV, and one with a sporting vibe and huge personality. It features unique styling that creates instant presence on the road, a piano black grille and outer grilles, silk metal side window trim and door mirror caps, and dual integrated tail pipes. Standard 20-inch 5-Spoke Matt Black Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels provide the final aggressive touch. Inside, Fine Nappa leather/Nubuck textile upholstery and Metal Mesh aluminium inlays combine a technical look with a luxurious feel – modern, strong, elegant, and putting you firmly in the driver's seat.

XC90 is available in four colour finishes, all designed to work in harmony with the new body shape and show off the impressive silhouette. They are Crystal White Premium Metallic and Bursting Blue Premium Metallic which are 2 new colours and Osmium Grey Metallic, Onyx Black Metallic. Volvo XC90 is the biggest SUV in the premium SUV M segment. Not only does it offer seven full size seats over rivals' five, it combines all of this space, luxury, comfort and style with the far-reaching benefits of Volvo's T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid 407hp – that is, 407 horsepower in combined performance mode, whilst delivering 43.5km/l in fuel efficiency, and a driving range of 40km in Pure mode.

With Volvo S90 R-Design, we aimed to deliver a statement of our belief that a car should put your needs and wishes first, so we created the new S90 R-Design, whose every detail allows you to express yourself. S90 R-Design (the biggest Sedan in this premium segment) makes its presence felt the moment you see it, with gloss black R-Design grille and lower grille and bumper inserts, alloy wheels (255/40 R19 & 19" 5-Spoke Matt Black Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel) and integrated tailpipes; it is a car that stands out immediately. Inside, R-Design Contour seats, a steering wheel with gearshift paddles, carbon fibre decor inlays and a Charcoal headlining create a purposeful, focused mood. This is your invitation to get in and drive every day, in the sumptuous comfort of R-Design Nubuck Fine Nappa Perforated Leather.

In the S90, Volvo's T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid powerplant raises the game even further – it is resolutely the leading Plug-in Hybrid in the market, and the only one to combine power of 407hp, fuel efficiency of 55.6 km/l and driving range of 52.03 km in Pure mode.

S90 is available in four colour finishes, designed to show off that impressive body to the fullest - they are: Crystal White Premium Metallic, Osmium Grey Metallic, Onyx Black Metallic, and Bursting Blue Premium Metallic.

Jean-David Harel, Marketing Director, Volvo Car (Thailand) Company Limited, reveals, "The launch of our latest models XC90 and S90, and recently the XC60, have marked a new chapter in Volvo's history in Thailand. Our newest cars incorporate state-of-the-art smart technologies and bring the sophistication of Scandinavian design for an unmistakable presence on the Thai roads. We now bring this new dimension of Swedish design with the introduction of the R-DESIGN grades on the S90 and XC90 to capture the thrill of the driving experience with style, response and control. The latest R-DESIGN grades are available on S90, XC60 and XC90, offering dynamic design in pursuit of giving a more sporting, distinctive road presence to our line-up."

Volvo T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid – a mode to suit every journey, and even change on the fly

Experience the intelligent power of the T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid, which features three modes - pure, hybrid, and power. Drive in soothing silence or, with a simple turn of the XC90 T8's scroll wheel, enjoy a rush of high performance that defies the conventions of electric cars. Pure electric mode enables you to commute daily without using any petrol. Travel at speeds of up to 125 km/h (78mph). The Twin Engine is a full hybrid; it uses either the electric motor or the petrol engine - or both, depending on driving conditions. This gives the optimum delivery of power, low emissions, comfort, fuel economy, or a combination.

Both XC90 and S90 models lead their respective segments on safety by a massive margin over the competition. In fact, Volvo's latest roster of active and passive safety innovations which feature throughout both the XC90 and S90 are a generation ahead of rivals, especially as Volvo has continued to expand its focus on Smart Safety.

XC90 features a raft of integrated occupant protection systems, re-emphasizing Volvo's leadership in the field of global passenger car safety. A world-first auto brake kicks in when the car is turning in front of an oncoming vehicle, and works alongside another world-first solution which focuses on mitigating accidental road departure.

The New Volvo S90 features upgraded Pilot Assist, which now operates up to 130km/h on clearly marked roads and no longer needs to follow another car. The system is able to help adjust steering inputs to assist keeping the car in lane. It is part of a thoroughly revised safety package, which now includes the new generation of City Safety with the following integrated systems:

Large animal detection and Night time detection
Intersection braking
Pre-prepared front seat belt retraction (electrical, reversible retractor belt branded 'Since 1959')
Run-off Road Mitigation - detects car leaving the road, prepares front seat belts and energy-absorbing seat structure
Park Assist Pilot for parallel and perpendicular parking with 360º parking camera
Ultra-high strength steel makes up 35 per cent of the car's body weight
Volvo Premium features come as standard on the S90 and XC90 R-Design, and include:
Pilot assist / ACC
Keyless entry and Power tailgate with hands-free opening
Advanced centre display touch screen9"
Driver display 12.3" with navigation system

Both S90 and XC90 models include a Head-up display, leaving the driver more time to focus on making swift, comfortable progress instead of taking his/her eyes off the road. When you feel like you want to do just that, Sensus Connect is there to thrill, entertain, advise and keep you connected to the rest of the world outside of these beautifully tailored Volvo passenger cocoons. The driver benefits from a Full Digital TFT Driver Display, whilst family and friends will adore the Power Panoramic Sunroof (XC90), and the life-supporting convenience of Volvo's Power Tailgate with hands-free opening.

Every new Volvo vehicle purchased from Volvo Car (Thailand) authorized dealers comes with complimentary Volvo Warranty for 3 years or 100,000 kilometres, and 24-hour Volvo Assistance for 1 year as part of the standard package.

XC90 and S90 R-Design T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid 407 hp: XC90 T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid R-Design from 4,590,000 and S90 T8 Twin Engine AWD Plug-in Hybrid R-Design from 3,590,000.
