Volvo V60 Seats

Anyone see these awesome seats in the Volvo V60?

And the car itself. Beautiful in my opinion. If it came with a manual, it would be my next car.

Volvo's seats are amazing. The cars themselves are, IMO, an acquired taste. No arguing the quality in general, and some of them are striking. They just don't move me.

I considered one but there are no dealers near me. With AWD and the factory Polestar tune it can do 60 in 5-seconds.

And the company says it's cars will all be electric in a few years, from what I read.

I heard this was a little bit of a show and really means their cars will be electrified, meaning hybrid to some extent up to full electric. They will not be 100% electric.
I think a marketing game.

Could well be, though I think the Polestars will be fully electric (and over $100k, so, w/e). I have nothing against electrification per se, especially in hybrid applications, as long as the car is fun.

Lately, Volvo has been making the best interiors in the business. I sat in an S90 last time I went to the auto show, and was thoroughly amazed at how nice it is in there.

Trying to talk my stepdad into getting a V60 or an XC60 right now... But he's the sort of person who would (and does) drive a 2002 Honda Accord, even though he can easily afford a much nicer vehicle.

Body looks nice, seats.....meh. Head reset looks ridiculous. I always thought they had decent styling, but then every time i got into a Volvo it looked like a 5 year old designed the gauge cluster. Just bland imo.

Volvo puts a lot of effort into ergonomics. I had back problems that went away when I got a Volvo V70, then came back when I got a C-Max

Different strokes for different folks I guess. Headrests kinda look funny to me as well. They remind me of an airplane seat. Seeing as Volvo is also in the aircraft game, I can appreciate the merge even though I may not like how it looks.
