2012 Volvo S60 T5: Lumbar Support

August 30, 2011

The S60's seats are among the most comfortable I've experienced, perfectly supportive even over longer stretches of travel.

As shown above, many of the seat controls are power-adjustable, located on the base of the seat by the door. Not so with the lumbar support, though...

...as shown below, you adjust that manually via a knob.

The lumbar support is pretty vigorous, which I like. My one gripe is with the placement of the knob -- it's so close to the center arm rest that using it can be a bit of a squeeze.
