It might have first hit the market in 2009, but the Volvo XC60 R Design still stands tall as one of the best SUVs you can drive today.

Volvo XC60 R Design

As you would expect with a Volvo, it comes second to none in terms of safety and reliability, but there is much more than that to the sporty R Design.

For starters this classy SUV is one of the most stylish on the market, with a wide front grille, metal-finish mirrors on the wing and skid plates.

What’s more the R Design comes a superb set of attention-grabbing 18 inch 5-spoke alloys.

In terms of drive too, the R Design offers plenty. With excellent handling and stronger dampers than the original XC60, this motor is a treat to drive both on and off road.
