There is a freshly designed front bumper, black honeycomb air dam and black grille with the R-Design badge. The ORVMs have a sliver finish with two chrome exhausts that jut out from behind along with a visible diffuser.

The car comes in two diesel variants. Volvo S60 D4 comes with a 1984 cc engine producing 163bhp power and 400 Nm of torque. Volvo S60 D5 produces 2400 cc giving out 215bhp and 440 Nm torque.
