      This was a predictable next step. While Volvo has been playing up the new S60 T6 as an adequate replacement for the old S60R, we knew the car would eventually move a bit closer with a new R-Design model. Here it is, just in time for the 2010 Paris show, along with a V60 R-Design wagon for the Europeans.

      No Manual Trans = Not a replacement for the S60R. Pass.

      The wagon is totally hot. If reasonably priced and available in the US it would be at the top of my list. Hopefully they will reconsider and import it.

      the front end treatment is a very nice improvement over the standard S60. Ashame there is no manual, but not unexpected.

      I'll be driving the new S60 next month at one of the free events. The new car would look fantastic if it weren't for the pug face, but I'm still anxious to see how it drives.

      Then you'll be interested in the Volvo S60 "Troglodyte" Limited Edition

      Back OT...I really like the simplicity of Volvo interiors - I say someone drives this thing before passing such harsh judgment on an automatic - if I recall the old V70Rs got heaping praise in their later incarnations even despite most of them coming over as autos.

      Each to his own - I like it!
