2012 Volvo S60 T5: Seat Comfort
January 24, 2012
I used to own a 2002 Volvo S60. I didn't choose it, I got it by marriage, and besides the fact that it was the base 168-horsepower 2.4-liter inline-5 (ugh, compared to the available turbos), I really disliked the car for one specific reason: seat comfort.
And I mean seats all around. The rear seats had zero legroom, but that was primarily my daughter's problem.
The front seats were roomier, but I never had any luck maneuvering them into a comfortable position. Not the driver's seat with its power controls, or the nightmarish passenger side's manual controls.
That S60 hung around my house for seven long years, and we never got over our differences.
Which probably makes me appreciate the driving comfort of our long-term 2012 S60 even more.
