Volvo’s S60 T6 R-Design AWD is a study in paying attention to the small things. To draw a comparison, the difference between a luxury home and the houses most of us live in is more than just the footprint, the number of rooms, or the setting. It’s equally about the design details inside: the finishes, the materials, and the craftsmanship, all of which add up to a big difference.
There’s nothing wrong with a $69 bathroom-sink faucet that you can pick up at Lowe’s (we’re speaking from firsthand experience), but the sinks in that renovated brownstone on the tony side of town are probably adorned with something more like a Maestro Bath Swarovski Crystal unit that costs a small fortune. Suddenly, washing your hands is an upscale experience that makes you feel, well, better.
