Inside, Volvo has attempted to focus on ergonomics and security. With the joint instrument at the same height as the navigation conceal, all it takes is a horizontal eye traffic to whip between the sources of information. Another examples is that the pedals worn when you birth and impede pouring are a few centimetres from one another near the gear selector.

Above the shared instrument, the driver receives information and alerts from several safety systems via the windscreen’s president-up spectacle. Information from the car’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) is integrated in the, A-pillars.

These safety elements include this Blind Spot caveat approach, as well as a Collision Warning usage with Full Auto Brake and pedestrian detection skin that use radar policy mounted behind the car’s lattice and a camera behind the rear-sight mirror.

Orrefors was tasked with conniving a sparkler edition of Volvo’s trademark base console floating stack. The gemstone panel appears to hover above the center console, however it actually rests dimly on rubber pads and shadowy light sources can revise the crystal’s glow to match the driver’s mood. Despite its creativity and inventiveness, the practicality of using such an instrument in a production car makes it commonly a construct apply, an actuality that has not been stumped on Volvo.

“The theory car’s exterior gives a patent indication of what customers can demand of the all-new S60. On the inside we’ve been evened more daring – there the focus has been on creating an idea of the impending in the somewhat longer perspective,” explained Volvo pattern executive Steve Mattin.
