2015 Volvo S60: Sun Visors Don't Extend
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on February 9, 2016
Occasionally, we'll have a long-term test vehicle that lacks sliding/extendable sun visors that provide full side window coverage. Complaining about it can perhaps come off as nitpicking. But if this were my 2015 Volvo S60, I'd still be irked that I couldn't extend the visor.
Admittedly, it's largely down to expectations here. More often than not we're praising workaday vehicles that do have them. Our recent 2015 Chevrolet Colorado had them and we wrote that the extendable visors were fantastic. It's the sort of thing that makes me think, "Hey, Chevy sweated the details for its new truck."
But then there was our 2014 Acura MDX and we deemed its fixed visors as inadequate. (Note Dan Edmunds' clever engineering fix in the photo!)
It's the same with our S60. So, yeah, I have an expectation that a luxury-branded vehicle should have this convenience feature. The lack of it just reinforces the vibe that Dan Frio recently touched on about the S60 not quite being at the same level as other top small luxury sedans.
