You need to look at price list It can vary from country to country.

If by ambient lighting you are talking about the single LED in the rear view mirror that shines down I would not pay a penny for it as an option. It is, in my opinion, a load of rubbish. However, if there is another option then I am not aware of it.
Ambient lighting in my last car ( not Volvo) was quite impressive and was a standard feature.

I agree that it's not 'impressive' but more people have said they like the soft lilac light that reflects off all the shiny bits than have said they like any other bit of the car!

Many thanks both for your replies, I'm in the U.K. and looking towards the r design - yes it is the single neon light above the rear view mirror, I did test drive an se nav which had them in.but i did not know if they were in the r design basic model or not hence my question

It's not neon, it's one small LED lamp. 2 in fact, 1 from the front and one in the back. I agree it's not worth a penny.

The standard r design in the uk doesnt have the one in the rear switched on, its an optional extra. I think it might be included in the lux version though.

I like it but its certainly not worth the hype.

oh FFS....you either like it or you don't...opt in or opt out. If you don't have it tough, if you do have it, you love it, if you only have half then you only get half!!! my kids LOVE it. I love the blue, it matches the exterior colour, my boy like green, my daughter loves purple...why are we being so critical on stuff that years ago...didn't even exist!? I love having the ambient light front and rear...you need a Lux version!

Darren...D2 R-Design Lux Nav, Rebel Blue, Winter Pack , Premium Audio, DAB, Rear Tints, Auto Dimming, Love it!

Steady now lol - I was only asking if the neon light at the front (that you can change colours) was available on the Basic R Design as a standard feature?? whether you love or hate it, pay for it or not is down to personal choice
