ROCKLEIGH, New Jersey — The 2016 Volvo XC90 R-Design, a high-end version of the redesigned SUV, will arrive at Volvo dealerships next spring, a Volvo spokeswoman told Edmunds.

"The XC90 will hit dealerships in April and the R-Design will follow shortly after that," wrote Laura Venezia, a Volvo Cars of North America spokeswoman, in response to a query.

Pricing on the XC90 has not been announced.

Car shoppers got a first look at the sporty R-Design on Thursday as the automaker released photos and a few details.

"The R-Design exterior includes a number of distinguishing details, such as grille, lower front spoiler, window in silk metal and a R-Design dual tailpipe surround," Volvo said.

Other details include bright roof rails and mirror covers in matte silver. Buyers can choose either 20-inch or optional 22-inch R-Design alloy wheels.

The cabin gets sports seats and a perforated leather steering wheel.

The R-Design will be one of three XC90 models available in the U.S. Volvo said there will be a choice of powertrains for the R-Design, up to 400 horsepower.

The redesigned SUV is proving to be a hot property. Volvo's release of 1,927 individually numbered black First Edition XC90s were snapped up in 47 hours.

The XC90 competes against the Acura MDX, Buick Enclave, Lexus GX 460 and Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers who like the look of the 2016 Volvo XC90 R-Design should begin making their plans now.
