    The good thing is they can´t age badly since they look old from the very start.

    I wonder if that creates synergy.

    Of if it is a people-centric dialogue.

    It's unique. Not as ugly in person as I kind of expected. Definitely not for me. If I were looking for a truck as a lifestyle vehicle it'd likely be a Rivian. But I have zero need for a huge vehicle.

    You do know that the TV part doesn't work while driving, right?

    That said, I don't like it either in my own car.

    Didn't we used to have a thread like that?

    Apparently it is cheaper than using real buttons. The New Volvo EX30 is all TV, no buttons.

    Imho the important part is not the actual content that is being shown, but that something is grabbing your attention in the corner of your field of view.

    My takeaway after seeing it and sitting in the truck, is what the cost of Lemon Pledge would be over the life of the vehicle, because the fingerprints would drive me nuts.

    Volvo is in the body shop and my rental car is a Mini. It is fast but no sense of direction. Steering is easily redirected by obstacles like a leaf, a feather or very small insects. Dash board is a mess. Like looking at a washing machine while driving. But better than the Ford Exploder they wanted to give me.

    I agree with this. I wish the car (and every car) had a head-up display. I once owned a car with such a device and it was amazing. 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix of all cars. It worked very well and was projected out in front of the car in such a way that the driver’s eyes didn’t have to re-focus all the time. I completely agree that Tesla’s big screen can be very distracting. They’re not the only ones, but they are one of the worst.

    In a strange synchronisation, I read yesterday that from 2026 euroNCAP will reduce security rating of cars that don't have physical buttons fort important stuff while driving (turn signals, lights, windshield wipers, etc).

    I use something similar to that in my day job. More or less the same thing, primarily used for low visibility approaches in our case.

    Wow. Mini kind of ruined their Countryman model in 2025.

    2024 - still looks like a Mini with the scowling grill



    2025 - looks like a lobotomized Mini zombie car, probably found in the skip behind the Kia design studio.
