2012 Volvo S60 T5: Smart Trunk

February 09, 2012

Not only does the S60 have concealed trunk hinges, it also offers these handy release levers for the rear seatbacks. Not sure why more cars don't have these, but they make loading something larger into the trunk much easier.

Climbing into the rear seat and releasing the seat backs from the inside isn't any great chore, but having exterior releases isn't exactly a massive feat of engineering either. I also noticed that the trunk is pretty large for a car in this class, or at least it looks that way since there aren't any significant intrusions. Overall, it's a well thought out setup that gives this sedan an added measure of practicality.
