Just curious - when did Volvo begin offering the XC90 as an "R" model? Is the 2009 R-design the first year?

Re: R-design: First Year? (W6JHB)

Jim,<p>The 2009 Model Year was the first year Volvo offered an R-Design models with either 3.2 or V8 engines. <p>In the 2007 Model Year Volvo offered the Volvo XC90 V8 Sport which had many of the same features as the R-Design. The Sport model however was only offered with the V8 engine.<p>William<BR><BR>

Re: R-design: First Year? (MagoonR)

My RDesign was on pre-order for over 6 months. I would have been a little more pissed off if it was available in 2008. Finally got it in November. I have not seen another on the road yet!

Ughhhhh.... <p>I've never seen one either. For that matter, we have an '08 S80 T6 AWD and in the two years we've had it, only have seen one other. Yes, we've seen the older T6 versions, but not the newer style!

Re: R-design: First Year? (MagoonR)

Any advice on which XC90 to get? Can you get an R design with a back seat? I have a friend in the market. Thanks Tony <p>

Re: R-design: First Year? (98glt)

I can't recommend anything, I like that I have the only one in town! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>Although I thought you could get the 7 seater with any of the line up.

There is at least one R-Design here in KC, a red one. It's just like our sport, but obviously a couple years newer. <p>I saw another Passion Red 09 R-Design outside Philly this week as well. <p>I believe the Sport was also offered on a limited number of 90's in 06, not many.
