2010 Volvo XC60: What's Up With This Grille?

January 28, 2010

I like the styling of our XC60 for the most part. Not boxy, not too big, not a lot of chrome.

But there's one thing that annoys me every time I look at it. I'm referring not only to the oddly massive Volvo badge, but also the large cruise control radar stuck in the grille.

Was that really the best job of concealment they could do? I've seen similar systems on other cars that were integrated in a way that made them far less obvious. It's especially odd given how detailed the rest of the car's exterior styling was done. Oh well, I guess it was an option so maybe it didn't get the same level of scrutiny as the lovely headlights.
