      Very nice! Will Maple Brown be available too?
      Bursting Blue, Maple Brown, both are my choice.

      Internet photo's don't show paddles on the steering wheel; however, the promo video clearly shows them.

      Seriously - Volvo surely isn't going to put shift paddles on the XC90 R-design and then omit them on (what should be the sportier) S90 R-design?

      How big are those rims? Could you choose different (i.e. Smaller) rims at no extra cost?

      Should we expect the R-design Trim to cost ~ 4k on the T6 AWD model (similar to the uncharge on the T6 XC90)?

      I don't know which rims are in the photos, but there are 18", 20", and 21" wheels in that style on the international configurator. There are also 19" wheels in the same style that the XC90 R-Design comes with. Passion Red and Bursting Blue were added to the configurator after it was launched. The swatches don't show up, but if you click the blank space next to them it works.

      http://www.volvocars.com/intl/buy/sh...r-configurator

      I would love one of these, but IDK about the suspension. Car and Driver said the air suspension will be available for the R-Designs.

      If I can do it with 4C + Air on the rear axle, I may go R-Design. I love the interior of the XC90 R-Design with the Metal Mesh inlays so very much, plus it contains most of what I want from the Inscription without things I don't need at a lower price.

      Probably 21". Yes, like the XC90 R-Design, there will be a smaller base sport wheel probably 19", with a similar design (see Matt's pic above ^^) as the 20" XC90 R-Design base wheels.

      Matt, those XC90 RD base wheels are 20", which following Volvo common practice would suggest the same design in 19" for the S/V90 RD.

      Must have the blue! It is warm but not as striking as the rebel blue, kind of like a power blue on roids. Silver is grey scale or tarmac camo..pass!

      I doubt it. Inscription is only $3,300 on the S90 T6 AWD vs $5,600 on the XC90 T6 AWD.

      Definitely looks bigger, could they be 21"? I think 19 or 20 would fit perfectly

      Basically I'm trying to discern if R-design models will have steering wheel shifters as seen in the promo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI6Cchp4ezo

      Its strange because the paddles are not visible in any of the actual photos offered from Volvo?

      I saw a Bursting Blue XC90 in person today up close. I do really love the color.

      Fingers crossed for the R-Design working for me but if it doesn't, oh well.

      And as for paddles, from the international site:

      You were right. According to the international website this wheel, Ixion II, is available in 3 different sizes: 18" , 20" and 21". The one in official photos is definitely 21".

      I think that's incorrect in that those are not Ixion II's. The SPA model wheels do not have names, sadly. Ixion II's are the 19" and 20" wheels on the US R-Designs through MY...16?

      18" looks best to me. For comparison:

      R-Designs have a black-only interior, either mixed textile/leather or perforated leather.

      Passion Red currently only seems to be an R-Design option. Sorry.

      Maybe in the future it will be available via OSD on non-R-Design cars as it is for other models now.

      It would be nice if they would do a red or dark brown interior on the R-Designs as well as the black.

      I kind of like the look with the solid 21" 5 spoke wheels.

      pdw, you are way off. R-Designs have never had fancy looking brakes. The original 850R's didn't have fancy brakes, either, and they were far better cars than the P2 R's ever were. Even the P3 R-Designs and base C30 T5 are/were better cars.

      The Polestar S60/V60 have very nice looking brakes, at least in front, and are a great replacement for your R. The V90 Polestar, which would be the R-equivalent, has yet to be seen. We don't even know for sure if it will ever exist.

      Also, China makes absolutely no decisions for the brand. This was Sweden's choice. And the brakes on the XC90 look fine for a non-performance car, I'm sure the same will be true for the S/V90.



      Not to mention, these are not white-knuckle cars. Reviews say they can be engaging and fun, but they are not close to worthy of being a track car. Why would they be sold with track brakes?
