2020 Volvo S60 Sedan Infotainment and Interior Features
The 2020 Volvo S 60 sedan has been thoroughly redesigned in 2019 and, trust me visually it looks better than any Audi A4 or BMW 3 series. Simplicity and quality are the cornerstones of the Scandinavian designed cabin of the S60 sedan. Exceptional build quality and elegance create a calm and serene ambience from the outside world. The beautiful athletic appearance of the S 60 sedan is almost 6 inches wider than most of its competitors which also reflects in its interior dimensions.
You will find the exceptionally comfortable with the supremely designed orthopaedic seats. The S60’s large 9” Sensus Touchscreen is your intuitive command centre. Unique air vents have slender, metal-finished controls with diamond-pattern finishes. Pitching crisp graphics and text onto the lower part of the windshield, the head-up display function makes your journeys easy and intuitive.
Seating and Comfort
The uncluttered cabin of the S 60 sedan is driver-centric and made for the most comfortable driving position for long hauls. Outward visibility is excellent because of the thin roof pillars and large windows which is further enhanced by 360-degree surround camera. The Volvo S 60 can seat five people and the increase in chassis length by 10 cm makes up for generous legroom. However, taller individuals in the rear may feel short of headroom. There are two sets of LATCH connections for securing child car seats, as well as a third upper tether anchor.
Enter the S 60 sedan and you will be welcomed by a huge 9-inch Census infotainment system. Most of the controls are easy to reach and the response time is better than ever before. The steering wheel tilts and telescopes a good amount and should serve a broad range of drivers. Both the front and rear doors have wide openings which make getting in and out of the car a breeze.
Cargo and Luggage Utility
The 2019 Volvo S 60 sedan comes with 11.6 cubic feet of storage which can be increased to a little more with the help of split-folding rear seats. There’s lots of room in the deep trunk and plenty of cubbies in the centre console, too. The trunk also come fitted with useful bag hooks and hinges which will save your luggage to tumble from here and there. You can say that the interior space is not soo generous when compared with other rivals in this segment.
Infotainment and Interior features
The 9.0-inch tablet-style infotainment system is created to project minimalistic design and most of the smartphone integration apps are standard. It looks attractive and has organized menus, without a group of buttons cluttering the dash. However, this tablet-style touch screen interface takes some time to master.
The portrait format in the centre display makes reading maps, viewing menus and the following navigation assist a much easier task and reduces scrolling. However, most of the functions require two presses when one would normally do which can be hectic during driving. The knob controller may be frustrating to use but you will get used to it. Voice control is not up to the mark and takes a while for the system to recognize it or else it will never. Even a simple task such as adjusting the temperature keeps a driver’s eyes off the road for longer than you will think and it can be disastrous.
