      What does the Power display show?

      I have a 2017 XC60. When I have the display theme set to "Performance", there is a Power indicator on the right side. The bars and arrows go up and down as I drive, but there is no corresponding numeric value displayed.

      What, exactly is the power display telling me?

      Nothing that you don't already know. It's just a gimmick. It's either measuring torque or throttle position or something loosely representing power output, like you said, without any corresponding scale. It looks cool, but is useless.

      I think its a replacement the blinker fluid level indicator / muffler bearing life indicator found on earlier models :-P

      It is explained in the owner's manual and, IMHO, not an especially valuable feature.

      I for one do like it. The big indicator shows the amount of power used and the small one is the available power in the gear you're in. If you exceed available power it'll downshift. Doesn't really fill a purpose but I think it's neat.
