Why do the red tail light lines in my decade old designed XC60 look better?

I'm seriously confused.

It looks like something out of the early 2000s :facepalm:

It's not just the tail lights. The shape of the rear end has a wierd blockyness to it, and not in the classic "boxy" Volvo sense. The general aesthetic reminds me a little of the current Euro-spec Passat (except the Passat is cleaner...and I don't like that either).

Well, hopefully when I see it in person next month I won't be taken aback.

The lights really looked way better to me in the video reveal. If I was considering purchasing I don't think the lights would hold me back. Not saying they're fantastic just think irl they'll look fine.

There is no such things as "classic boxy Volvo sense" any more.

I feel this angle does not do the back end any justice. I second that about the view in the video reveal. I'm sure they'll look great in person.

Seriously? Of course there is. Past design language isn't erased from memory by new design language.

They can't get hold of a T8 V90 for now, so hands are of course free. Oh well, the new Pilot Assist allows 30 sec of hands free time...

:thumbdown: terrible looking. The V90 looks very very good, too bad we needed an SUV this go-round. Maybe add a polestar V90 just for fun
