2012 Volvo S60 Long-Term Road Test

2012 Volvo S60 T5: Backup Camera

July 19, 2011

Here's what the backup camera view looks like for our 2012 Volvo S60 T5. It's straightforward but almost too simple. I usually appreciate when there's an actual line for how far away I am from the bumper behind me. Like in our Ford Fusion Hybrid; even though it, too, is simple I love the use of red, yellow and green brackets. "I'll park it right up to the top of the red bracket."

Also, what's the point of the graphic of the car on the right taking up screen real estate in the Volvo? So we know where the rear camera is located on the car? Shrugs.

Here are some other backup views from our other long-termers for comparison:

2011 BMW 528i
2011 Ford Mustang GT
2011 Hyundai Equus Signature
