The trunk space of today’s sedans appears to me to be designed under a principle that simply says: “It’s large, it’s yours, take it from here.” That is, if you need to divide and organize its space, to carry small, fragile, soft, awkwardly shaped things in your trunk, it is your duty to find the solution for their safety. Do you have a couple of bags from the grocery? Maybe some bottles of wine? Or a small carry-on or a briefcase… Even after a short ride, you will never find your stuff where you put it when you left, unless you are creative enough to find a way to keep everything from bouncing around. Why should we look after some additional accessories or aftermarket solutions, instead of using the provided necessary hardware to organize the trunk to its maximum flexibility?
Although probably expected under other possible headings, windshield wipers are here not to analyze their wiping performance, but to have a look at how do they respond when we need to go to work in a Canadian winter morning and we find them buried in ice and snow.
Continuing their long tradition of proven reliability, easy access and simple operation, this type of control is present on most cars today. However, are they all the same? Do they all have the same design?
When opening such large part of the car’s body, our attention may not be always attracted by its surrounding areas, but they add up to the quality and, implicitly, the value of the vehicle.
Few considerations on how the surrounding areas of the trunk opening is designed.
