2012 Volvo S60 T5: What's That?

July 04, 2011

Spotted this in our 2012 Volvo S60 T5. Naturally I had to twist it. Guess what it's for.

OK, OK, from its placement you ALL probably guessed correctly that this twisty knob in the driver footwell opens the hood. And this may be a dumb post, but I honestly have never seen a hood opener like that before. Have you? It's just asking to be twisted all the time, whether you need to open the hood or not.

Everything else is so clearly labeled in the S60, can you blame me for being intrigued?
