2012 Volvo S60 T5: Clean Stack

May 30, 2012

Still impressed with how much functionality Volvo packs into this elegant interface. Navigating the display monitor using the OK/Menu and Exit button (top right) takes some practice, but otherwise this is a simple, unfussy control panel to use while driving. While everyone moves to dial controllers and five-button arrays, even small track pads, Volvo shows how you can still do it with a simple panel and a couple of knobs trimmed in pretty chrome.

How long will telephone number pads be relevant? Show of hands: how many of you know more than a handful of your immediate friends and family's telephone numbers from memory? Now we just store phone numbers as names in our contact lists on our phones. But there's still something vaguely reassuring about seeing the number pad there, floating just above Couch Potato Man.
