2010 Volvo XC60: Still Digging the Dash
October 15, 2009
Volvo first introduced the flat panel dash several years ago in the S40 as I recall. I thought it looked cool then and I still do. It reduces the bulk of the dash area and opens up a little extra storage space at the same time.
I was unsure whether or not it would catch on, but here we are years later and it's still there. Maybe Volvo is stuck with it, or customers actually like it, I'm not sure. But I say, good for them. Like the lighting Oldham was referring to, it's different in a good way and that's always a good place to be. Can't say the same about the ventilation controls, but that's another post entirely.
