Test-driving the latest cars on a weekly basis is generally wrought with highs and lows; there are moments of being surprised and impressed as well as being totally disappointed and wondering "What were they thinking?" One of those regular disappointments lately is the small moonroofs that still seem to be hanging around. They're just as sad as Vanilla Ice's new home improvement show on the DIY network.
I drove the 2015 Volvo V60 recently. While I generally loved the familiar feel of its ride quality, I was baffled by how small the "normal-sized" moonroof looked. If Volvo can put a panoramic moonroof in the XC60, why not carry this feature through to the V60? Panoramic moonroofs are indicative of contemporary automotive design and certainty not something that's a budget-buster. The Toyota Venza I drove recently had not only one but two small moonroofs, as if that's any better.
