2010 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD: You Can Feel the Grain
August 30, 2010
Many staffers here have complimented the blonde wood center stack on our long-term 2010 Volvo XC60 T6. I was admiring it myself this weekend and noticed something.
When I ran my fingers along the surface of the center stack, I noticed that the wood seemed unfinished -- not covered with polyurethane or lacquer. It's pretty nice, and adds to the Ikea-like ambience.
It's difficult to convey this tactile sensation by description so I'll try using Caroline's macro technique in the photo below.
I'm not sure if this unfinished wood will hold up over time, but it certainly looks good today.
