2010 Volvo XC60: Ergonomically Designed Turn Stalk
August 31, 2010
Just prior to Riswick's thorough cleaning of our Volvo's steering wheel, I snapped this shot of the turn signal stalk. Look odd to you? Well, it did to me. Can't remember seeing any kind of steering wheel stalk that wasn't dead straight, regardless of whether it was easy to reach or not.
I never really noticed it from behind the wheel. All I noticed was that the turn signal was easy to reach. And that, my friends, is a nice little piece of design work on Volvo's part. Oh, and that "read" button on the end of the stalk? That would be an example of poor design. Can't win them all.
