Back in April, Volvo announced it was canceling its high-performance R-badged models altogether after 2007 due to poor sales. While the R models may be going, Volvo has reportedly decided to begin offering a new sports package for its cars that will be called the "R-Line". Just like Audi's crop of S-Line models, the R-Line cars from Volvo would feature visual enhancements, interior upgrades, and some light mechanical tweaks including stuff like bigger wheels, lower profile tires, suspension and brake upgrades, etc. Unlike the soon-to-be-deceased R-badged cars, however, those badged with an R-Line emblem will probably not have hotted up engines.
We're still holding out, however, for Volvo's CEO Fredrik Arp to make good on giving us a high-performance version of the new C30 hatchback. We'd like to officially vote for one inspired by the widebody Evolve C30 shown at the 2006 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
