With several world debuts on turntables and hundreds of models scattered on the floor it's hard to stand out amongst the crowd by the end of the night. With market lines blurring between segments it's not unusual to see more advanced technology in a 15,000 entry level model from big box brand than what's available in handcrafted models twenty times the price. Materials and craftsmanship is harder to execute and fake but brands are getting better every day. With that in mind it takes a truly unique feature to stand out. Unique in this case means simple and elegant. Volvo XC90's frameless rear view mirror was by far the most memorable feature at the 2014 LA Auto Show. It's a fresh take on something that's in every car and one that makes a true design statement like a borderless flat screen that makes you wonder why no one else has done it before. Volvo is proud of the few neat touches it put in the long overdue XC90 but the all glass mirror is the one that works the best. The mirror won't push anyone to buy the very nicely done XC90 but it's something the rest of its very strong competition doesn't have and that's a positive.

What's the one small feature that you find really awesome?
