2012 Volvo S60 T5: There's A Lot Going On Under Here

May 02, 2012


I noticed today that the S60's trunklid has a lot going on under the lip where its release resides. Packaging here, like most places on a modern car, is critical.

Click on through for the full tour.


From left to right there's this key hole for the traditional key which hides inside the fob. Access to the key hole is made by removing the rubber plug. This is largely a contingency in case the electronic trunk release malfunctions or loses power. There's no interior release for the folding seats (it's in the trunk) and there is no pass through.


In the center is the trunk release and lock button.


On the right is the rear-view back-up camera.

Spaced evenly between the camera, trunk release and key hole are the lamps which illuminate the license plate.
