FEATURES & OPTIONS

Add something extra

  • Safety Comfort Tech & Sound Pack & Load Performance Environment
  • Preventive safety

    • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
      • Helping you to maintain your preset gap to vehicles in front at all speeds up to 200 km/h, the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a supportive partner for a more relaxed driving experience on any journey. Just select the desired speed and the desired time gap to the vehicle in front. When the radar sensor detects a slower vehicle in front, the speed automatically adapts to that vehicle. And when the road is clear, the car resumes the selected speed. At speeds over 70 km/h ACC also makes overtaking more convenient: simply turning the indicator on, ACC will briefly accelerate your car for a more efficient and fast overtaking. Whenever you want, you can also select conventional cruise control.
    • Distance Alert
      • Keep control of the distance to the vehicle in front and rest assured your Volvo will alert if you come to close. If the Adaptive Cruise Control is disengaged and a vehicle in front comes too close, the distance alert function activates a warning light to help you keep a proper distance. The warning light is displayed on the windscreen, from head-up LEDs on the dashboard or with a symbol if your car is equipped with the full-graphic head-up display.
    • Intellisafe Surround
      • With Intellisafe Surround you can enjoy even better lookout around your car and safer driving in conditions with restricted visibility, such as crossings and parking lots. Intellisafe Surround includes Intellisafe Standard plus the following technologies: Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), Rear Collision Warning and Cross Traffic Alert (CTA).
    • Lane Keeping Aid (LKA)
      • At speeds between 65 km/h and 200 km/h, Lane Keeping Aid can help prevent single-vehicle road departures as well as collisions caused by temporary distraction. This function uses a digital camera to register the lane markings and help monitor the car’s position on the road. If you get close to a lane marking and LKA senses you are not in full control, the system will gently steer the car back to help keep the car in the lane. And should you nevertheless unintentionally cross the lane marking you'll be alerted by haptic vibrations in the steering wheel or a warning sound. When you intentionally cross a lane marker using the direction indicators, LKA is not activated.
    • Cross Traffic Alert (CTA)
      • Reversing out of a parking space or anywhere else with restricted vision at the sides can be a tricky business. To make these manoeuvres easier and less stressful our Cross Traffic Alert (CTA) uses the rear radar sensors to alert you of crossing traffic from the sides. You will be alerted by an audible warning from the left or right rear loudspeaker and by a graphic warning in the centre display. Alerting for approaching vehicles as well as for pedestrians and cyclists, CTA is especially helpful in tight and crowded areas where the side view might be limited.
    • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)
      • We have all experienced that nasty little shock as we are changing lanes and suddenly realise that there’s another vehicle in our blind spot. That’s why we have developed Blind Spot Information System, BLIS, to give you total awareness. The rear-mounted radar sensors cover a large area behind the car and work in various sorts of weather and light conditions, day or night. As a vehicle enters your blind spot or approaches rapidly from behind, this function can alert you via a warning light in the door mirror glass – left and right. Together with the door mirrors, which include a wide-angle mirror on the driver side, this helps you assess the feasibility of a lane change. BLIS is activated once the car exceeds 12 km/h and reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles.
    • Intellisafe Assist
      • We designed our Intellisafe Assist technologies to support you in numerous ways. Whether it's about helping to maintain a safe distance to the vehicle ahead or help ensure you don't stray between the lanes: with Intellisafe Assist you will enjoy an even more relaxed and enjoyable driving experience. Intellisafe Assist includes Intellisafe Standard plus the following technologies: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Distance Alert and Lane Keeping Aid (LKA).
    • Inner and outer rear view mirrors with Auto Dim
      • One of the most annoying things about night driving is the blinding glare from other cars’ headlights. Our generously dimensioned door mirrors are made of chromatic glass that automatically dims to diminish glare from traffic behind you. The mirrors use an internal sensor to monitor light conditions and recognise glare from headlights. When this is detected, the inner and outer rear view mirrors will darken simultaneously to the exact degree necessary. Once the source of the glare disappears, the glass returns to its normal state automatically.
    • Volvo Full-LED Active Beam
      • Journeys after dark have just become a lot more enjoyable – and safer – thanks to our new Full-LED Active Beam, available as an option. Advanced LED light technology allows a supremely wide and long light pattern – the light is more than twice as strong as conventional halogen lights. And helping you to see around corners at night, the lights turn up to 30 degrees in either direction with the steering. And with this system, you don’t need to keep flicking between low and high beam*, which is not only annoying – according to several studies, it’s also a major cause of night-time accidents. With our new system, your headlights stay on high beam all the time. When another car approaches from the opposite direction, the system prevents dazzling the other driver by shading out only as much of your beam as necessary – no more, no less. Still, the LED headlights will illuminate the areas around the other car with high beam. The same applies to cars in front of you. The system can even recognise pedestrians and cyclists and avoids dazzling them, too – it can keep track of ten separate objects at the same time. And because the system is intelligent, the high beam shuts off when you enter a city, but if you drive past an illuminated sign – say a filling station or supermarket – it stays on so you can see what’s coming up. This means you benefit from safety as well as convenience. During daytime, the distinctive hammer shaped light-guides not only act as daytime running lights to make your car more conspicuous – they also flash in a warm colour when indicating. And when the dipped headlights are needed for illumination, they are automatically engaged by a twilight sensor. Contributing to improved fuel economy and lower running costs, the LED lights are extremely energy efficient and last the lifetime of the car without losing any luminance. *Applies for Full-LED Active Beam technology. Cars with halogen lights shift automatically between high and low beam.
    • Fog lamp with cornering function
      • At speeds of up to 40 km/h, the optional fog lamp with cornering function illuminates the area in which you’re turning at up to 15 degrees around the car for safer manoeuvring – for instance if you’re parking, turning into a small road or driving through a narrow gateway at night. To enhance your control during reversing in the dark, the cornering light activates on both sides to illuminate the area around your car.
    • Emergency Brake light (EBL)
      • We’ve all been on the motorway when the car in front unexpectedly brakes hard and then you have to brake even harder, while praying that the car behind you reacts in time. Wouldn’t you like to have some way of making sure traffic behind knows there’s a problem? Well, that’s our Emergency Brake Light, which works above 50km/h and knows the difference between normal and panic braking. If it is a panic stop, the brake lights will flash at a rate of four times per second, which will telegraph a clear message to following traffic that there’s a potential problem ahead. Once you slow to below 10km/h, the brake lights stop pulsing and your hazard lights take over.
    • Warning triangle
      • Conveniently fitted on the inside of the tailgate, the warning triangle is always easily accessible – no matter how much luggage you have in the load compartment. This lightweight wide-angle reflector stands upright to alert other road users even in strong winds and on slippery surfaces. It folds easily and stores in its own case.

    Protective safety

    • Reinforced passenger compartment
      • Wherever you go in your Volvo, you and your passengers are surrounded by a strong protective steel cage. And it’s reinforced with a great amount of one of the strongest steel types available – hot formed boron steel. The extremely strong passenger compartment helps protect the people inside in all types of accidents. In a collision, the front and rear crumple zones help to dissipate the energy of the crash to reduce the impact on those inside the car, while in a side-collision, our Side-Impact Protection System distributes the crash force across a large portion of the car’s body to further reduce your risk of injury. In the event of a roll-over, the unique roof construction helps protect the occupants. And if there's a collision or roll-over, your Volvo unlocks automatically to make it possible to open the doors from the outside.
    • Side Impact Protection System
      • We developed our unique Side Impact Protection System to help protect where you and your passengers are most exposed in the event of a side-collision. The steel framework of the car – including the front seat frames – is designed and reinforced to help displace the impact of a side-collision away from the occupants to other parts of the car body and help prevent intrusion into the cabin. The extremely strong side structure contains ultra-high strength steel and softer grades of steel to help withstand a severe side impact – even with a larger vehicle. The Inflatable Curtain for all the outboard occupants and the front seat side airbags interact with the Side Impact Protection System to help provide further protection. In the rear, the Side Impact Protection System and the Inflatable Curtain help protect the passengers in the outer rear seats including the third row.
    • Roll-Over Protection System
      • To help protect passengers in a rollover situation, Our Roll-Over Protection System is activated by a sensor that monitors the vehicle’s lean angle. In the event of a rollover the safety belt pre-tensioners are activated for every seat to help keep passengers more securely in place. At the same time, the Inflatable Curtain deploys to help protect against secondary impacts.
    • Rear Collision Warning
      • Being hit by a car from behind is one of the most common types of collisions. To help you avoid this type of accidents we created the radar based Rear Collision Warning system. If a vehicle approaches fast from behind and the system calculates that there's a risk of collision, it helps alert the driver in the approaching vehicle by flashing your hazard lights at a high rate. And if a collision still can not be avoided, the Rear Collision Warning system tensions the safety belts just before the impact to help keep all occupants safely restrained. To help reduce the strain on the occupants at the impact the system also activates full auto-­braking if your car is at standstill.
    • Restraint technologies
      • In a collision, Volvo’s restraint technologies interact to help reduce the impact. The safety belts with pre­tensioners activate within fractions of a second in the event of a collision or rollover and tighten the belt to help keep the occupants restrained. The front seat safety belts then release a little so that the driver and passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a controlled manner. Helping to optimise protection, the dual­stage airbags adapt the level of inflation depending on the force of the collision. The driver’s airbag also interacts with the deformation of the collapsible steering column. A knee airbag above the pedals further enhances protection of the driver and the brake pedal is released to help prevent foot and leg injuries. Side airbags in the front seats help reduce the risk of serious injuries in a side collision. In a collision or rollover, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) helps protect the heads of both front and rear outboard occupants on all the three seat rows. It also stays inflated for several seconds to provide prolonged protection for subsequent impacts.
    • Automatic braking after a collision
      • Helping to reduce the risk for more damage and injury after a collision – like hitting other cars or people – your Volvo brakes automatically when the safety belt pre-tensioners or an airbag are activated.
    • Safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters
      • Three-point safety belts are the first line of defence when it comes to help protecting people during a crash. That’s why we introduced them in 1959. We also invented the audible and visual safety belt reminder and today, everybody in the car is reminded to fasten their safety belts before moving off. And in the information display on the instrument panel, you can check that the rear seat passengers have all fastened their safety belts and that nobody unfastens them during the trip. Pre-tensioners activate to tighten the belts within fractions of a second in the event of a collision. The safety belts at the first and second row's outer positions then release a little to give less strain on the upper body. This also gives optimal belt pressure reduction for children at the outer second row seats and at the integrated booster cushion. This also means that the driver and front passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a controlled fashion. If your Volvo senses a critical traffic situation that could result in a run-off scenario or a collision, our run-off road protection system – a Volvo world-first– automatically tightens the front safety belts electrically to help provide maximum protection in the event of an accident.
    • Run-off road protection
      • If you for some reason should run off the road, your Volvo will prepare the front safety belts for maximum protection. Our unique run-off road protection system is a safety world first that continuously scans the road ahead and behind you. If the system spots a potential run­off scenario or collision, it automatically tightens the front safety belts electrically to help keep you at a safe position. This together with a robust body structure and the other restraint technologies, helps provide the best protection in a collision. And to help protect your spine if the car lands hard in the terrain after an accident, the front seat frame and cushions have a completely new design that enables them to absorb severe energy loads.
    • Dual-stage airbags, driver and front passenger
      • In a frontal collision, the driver and passenger airbags help protect your head, face and chest. But because no two collisions are the same, the airbags adapt the level of inflation depending on the force of the impact. The driver’s airbag also interacts with the deformation of the collapsible steering column. And if the impact is low enough that the airbags aren’t needed, the system will just deploy safety belt pre-tensioners if necessary.
    • Side airbags
      • In a side-collision, the side airbags inflate instantly to help protect the chest and hip. The side airbags are located in the ideal spot on the front seatback.
    • Inflatable Curtain (IC)
      • In a frontal offset collision, a side impact or a roll­over accident the Inflatable Curtain (IC) helps protect the heads of both front and rear passengers who are sitting on the sides, including the ones in the third row of the seven­seat version. It also stays inflated for several seconds to provide prolonged protection in the event of secondary impacts.
    • Collapsible steering column
      • The steering column is an advanced part of the safety system, with the upper and lower sections giving way in a controlled manner in a frontal impact to help protect the driver.
    • Brake pedal release
      • To help reduce the risk for injuries on the right foot and leg when the foot is on the brake pedal, the brake pedal is released and moves down to the floor in the event of a frontal collision. This Volvo safety innovation is triggered by the same sensors that activate the safety belt pre-tensioners and airbags when needed.
    • Energy-absorbing interior
      • All the panels and door sides are padded with energy-absorbing materials to help reduce the risk of injury to the car’s passengers.
    • Protective front seats with energy absorbing seat cushions
      • The front seats in your Volvo not only provide relaxing comfort for hours of driving. They are also designed to help protect you in the event of an accident. Part of your Volvo's protective body structure, the seat frames are extremely strong to help protect in a side-impact. Integrated anti-submarining protection helps reduce the risk of sliding under the safety belt in a collision. And to help protect your spine if the car lands hard in the terrain after an accident, the front seat frame and cushions have a completely new design that enables them to absorb severe energy loads.
    • Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS)
      • It’s something that happens every day in every major city in the world – a moment’s inattention and one driver runs into the back of another. And the result can be long-term injury as a result of whiplash. Volvo, as part of its IntelliSafe programme, has developed a system that can help reduce the risk of long-term injury by as much as 50 per cent. During a rear impact, the WHIPS system moves the entire seatback with the passenger or driver – similar to the way you might gently catch a ball – while the head restraint remains rigid to support the neck. A unique Volvo design.
    • Head restraints
      • We have developed head restraints that offer outstanding protection regardless of a person’s height, whether they are seated in the front or the rear. And the rear middle head restraint can be fully retracted into the backrest to improve the driver’s rearward visibility. It’s designed to obstruct taller passengers from sitting down without raising the restraint to its upright position. The outer head restraints can fold forward at the press of a button (optional) to further improve rear vision. In the folded position, they too are designed to obstruct passengers from sitting down without raising the restraints to their upright position.
    • Anti-submarining protection
      • To help prevent that passengers slide under and out of their safety belts in the event of a big impact, the seats feature anti-submarining guards which are specially shaped panels angled upwards at the forward edge inside the seats.
    • First-aid kit
      • The first-aid kit is conveniently carried in the load compartment and contains a variety of bandages. The contents are stored in different compartments to make it easier to find what you need in an emergency.

    Security

    • Alarm
      • Enjoy peace of mind also after you've parked your Volvo. Automatically turned on when you lock the car, the alarm is connected to the doors, bonnet and tailgate. It also reacts to movement inside the car or the breaking of a window. A level sensor deters thieves from jacking up the car to steal your wheels or tow it away. The deadlock function makes it impossible for a thief to open the doors from the inside once the car is locked from the outside. The movement sensor, level sensor and deadlock function can be switched off so people or pets can be left inside the parked and locked car.
    • Remote controlled alarm
      • The alarm is triggered if anyone attempts to open the doors, bonnet or boot lid, as well as reacting to movement inside the car or if a window is broken. Add a level sensor and the alarm triggers if the car is jacked up - and you can activate it manually from your remote control or PCC in an emergency.
    • Remote-controlled central locking system
      • A touch of a button on the remote control locks or unlocks the doors, tailgate and glove compartment. Use the personal settings menu to decide if the remote unlocks the driver’s door first, or all doors at the same time. You can also close or open all windows (including the panoramic sunroof if you have one) and unlock the tailgate separately – you can access your load compartment while nobody else can open any of the doors from the outside.
    • Automatic door locking
      • To further enhance your personal security, the doors can be set in the information menu to automatically lock the moment you drive away. Alternatively, lock them swiftly from the front seats using the lock button. For your safety in the event of a collision or roll-over, your Volvo unlocks automatically to make it possible to open the doors from the outside after an accident.
    • Keyless start
      • Start your Volvo with your remote control in your pocket. As long as your remote control is inside the car, you can start the engine simply by turning the start knob on the tunnel console while depressing the brake pedal.
    • Keyless locking and unlocking
      • When carrying bags or luggage, it can be very convenient that your Volvo unlocks as soon as you approach your car and pull the door handle. No need to press the remote control button – just keep the remote in your pocket or purse. And to lock the car after you've parked, you just push the button in the door handle. In addition to ordinary remote controls, this feature also includes a very small, waterproof keyless mini remote control you can bring with you everywhere.
    • Global locking and closing
      • Forgot to close the windows? This function allows you to close all windows including the panoramic sunroof and lock the car all at once by pressing the lock button on the remote control for four seconds. Alternatively, press the unlock button for two seconds to unlock the car and open all the windows to get fresh air inside the car before entering.
    • Immobiliser and theft-protected locks
      • Not only will the door locks withstand most break-in attempts, the electronic immobiliser makes it impossible to start the car without the right remote control. And even if a would-be thief manages to get into the car via a window, the deadlock system makes it impossible to open the doors from the inside.
    • Keyless mini remote control
      • Choosing keyless locking and unlocking you also get this exquisite, very small remote control. Slip it into your pocket or wear it around your neck – it's so small you can bring it with you all the time. And you don't have to worry about swimming, surfing, yachting or any other outdoor activities: this remote is waterproof.
    • Hands-free tailgate opening and closing
      • When your hands are full after shopping, the comfort opening function of your power tailgate can make a big difference: wave your foot under the sensor in the rear bumper, and it opens or closes automatically.
    • Hidden storage compartment
      • Under the load compartment floor you’ve got an extra space for storage. This area is easy to access via a hinged floor hatch. In addition the tailgate – just by the function of its elegant design – overlaps and locks the hatch when it's closed, preventing a smash-and-grab burglary. A moulded divider separates the storage area from the spare wheel compartment. In the five-seat variant, there's also an additional hidden, smaller storage compartment under the load compartment floor.
    • Welcome and Home Safe light
      • Enhancing security as you go to your car at night, Welcome light provides a warm reception. The parking lights, rear lights, interior lighting and ground lighting in the door handles are turned on for 30 seconds when you unlock your car with the remote control. If a door is opened, it stays on for up to two more minutes. Home Safe light is activated with the headlight stalk as you leave the car. This feature provides a low beam from the headlight to accompany you to your door, whether you’re returning home or are out on the road.
    • Ground lighting
      • Integrated in the front door handles, the ground lighting illuminates the area beneath the door handles for a welcoming feel when you approach your car at night. It also makes it easier to locate the door handle and avoid stepping into, for example, an unseen puddle of water. Ground lighting is activated when you unlock your car using the remote control. For your extra convenience, the optional LED ground lighting under the doors further illuminates the area below the open door.
    • Laminated windows
      • Extremely tough laminated glass in the side windows and the optional panoramic sunroof turns an attempted smash-and-grab into a total waste of time for the would-be thief. It also contributes to a quiet cabin. Laminated glass is standard in the windscreen, optional for the side windows and included in the panoramic glass roof option.
    • Lockable wheel bolts
      • These provide a simple, effective way of reducing the risk of aluminium wheels being stolen. The wheel lock features one uniquely coded socket enabling only you or your garage technician to remove the wheels.
  • Seats

    • Comfort front seats
      • If you prioritise maximum seating comfort, the Comfort seat design is for you. This new generation Volvo seat combines the best of our renowned ergonomics with modern Scandinavian style. New slim seat design with a completely new frame and specially-designed backsides contribute to superior seating comfort and increased legroom for the passengers at the second seat-row.

And to maximise your wellbeing during long drives, you can have ventilation in the seat cushion and backrest and an adjustable massage function in the backrest – extremely relaxing and comfortable.
    • Contour front seats
      • Our new generation slim Contour leather sport seats not only look fantastic. Designed to inspire dynamic driving, they also give you great side support all the way from your thighs to your shoulders. In typical Volvo fashion you’ll arrive feeling fresh, even after long stints behind the steering wheel. The power adjustable cushion extensions give excellent thigh support, even if you have long legs. And providing almost endless adjustment possibilities, the six-way power adjustment also includes fore-aft, tilt and power multi-directional lumbar support. In other words: you can easily tailor the front seats of your Volvo to fit your body perfectly – the ergonomic controls are conveniently fitted at the sides of the seats. Meanwhile, the specially-designed seat backsides contribute to increased legroom for the rear passengers.
    • Heated front seats
      • We Scandinavians are used to snow and ice. And because we understand cold weather better than most, few cars are better equipped to deal with freezing temperatures than your Volvo. In fact, thanks to our heating systems, you may now positively look forward to your drive when the mercury drops. Take our heated seats – since they work particularly quickly, your car will be just as comfortable as your living room in no time at all, with individual three levels touch controls for the driver and front seat passenger. Back seat passengers are catered for as well, with the optional heated rear seats for the two outer positions, equally featuring three levels.
    • Heated rear seats
      • The optional electrical heating is available for the two outer seating positions, with individual three levels touch controls.
    • Seven individual seats
      • In our new XC90, everyone travels first class. All occupants will appreciate the comfort of an individual, ergonomically designed seat. Cinema-style seating helps provide an excellent view, wherever you're seated. The easily adjustable front and second row seats make it easy to find the perfect seating position and maximum comfort. Each seat on the second row slides and reclines individually to suit personal preferences and further enhance legroom in the third row of seats. The middle seat can also be equipped with an integrated booster cushion and can slide forward additionally for even better elbow space or to put the child in even closer contact with parents in the front seats. In the third row of seats two passengers of up to 170 cm rides comfortably with good foot space, legroom and headroom. The two seats are centred close to each other to give the occupants a good front view for a more enjoyable ride. This area can also be fitted with its own air conditioning system, including adjustable ventilation vents. To facilitate getting in and out of the third row, the outer seats of the second row can be conveniently folded and pushed forward using a handle on top of the backrest. Further enhancing the versatility of your XC90, each rear seat is easy to fold individually into the load area floor so you can transport both passengers and cargo without compromising on either comfort or safety.
    • Second seat row
      • Designed for maximum comfort during hours of travelling, the three individual seats on the second row provide generous body support and can be individually reclined in seven steps to suit personal preferences. In the seven-seat version, each seat on the second row also slides individually to further enhance legroom in the third row of seats. This also makes it easier to adapt the load compartment, for example when you need to haul bulky loads together with passengers. If needed, each seat also folds individually into the load compartment floor for maximum versatility. The middle seat can be equipped with an integrated booster cushion and can slide forward additionally for even better elbow space or to put the child in even closer contact with parents in the front seats.
    • Third seat row
      • The seven-seat version offers a third row of seats that makes it possible to comfortably accommodate up to six passengers whenever the need arises. The two individual seats in the third row are generously proportioned to offer class-leading comfort for two passengers up to 170 cm. In the third row they ride comfortably with good foot space, legroom and headroom. The two seats are centred close to each other to give the occupants a good front view for a more enjoyable ride. This area can also be fitted with its own air conditioning system, including adjustable ventilation vents. To facilitate getting in and out of the third row, the outer seats of the second row can be conveniently folded and pushed forward using a handle on top of the backrest. And when the third row of seats is not needed or you need extra space for luggage and gear, each seat is easily folded into the load compartment floor.
    • Integrated booster cushion
      • You know when your son or daughter reaches that age when he or she is a little too big for a conventional child seat? Well, we’ve got a solution to smooth the transition from child seat to regular safety belt use, one that will keep your child comfortable and safe – and one that’s always available (for parents, grandparents or whoever suddenly needs to transport a child). Our integrated child booster cushion in the centre second-row seat helps ensure that the safety belt is always positioned to work effectively. That, and the safety belt load limiter, which is adapted to a child with this option, will reduce the strain on a child’s neck and chest during an impact. And when you don’t need it, the booster cushion disappears into the seat cushion. The seat in the seven-seat version can be moved forward so the child can be closer to the adults in the front.
    • Electrically powered seats with remote memory
      • You know how frustrating it is to climb behind the wheel, only to find that a partner or colleague has adjusted the seat and door mirrors to suit their particular physique. That’s why you can electrically adjust the driver’s seat and door mirrors to your perfect position and then your Volvo saves the settings. Every time you use your remote control for the central locking, the seat and door mirrors will automatically adjust to your preferences (you get two remote controls or Personal Car Communicators with your Volvo and can order up to four more). Each remote control triggers the corresponding setting from the last time that particular remote control was used. Furthermore, you can save up to three different seat and door mirror settings by using the buttons on the front door interior panels.
    • Power folding outer rear head restraints, second row
      • Helping to increase your field of vision when the second row of seats is unoccupied, the outer head restraints can be folded forward at the push of a button from the driver's seat. In the folded position, the head restraints are designed to obstruct passengers from sitting down without raising them to their upright position. The height-adjustable rear middle head restraint can be fully retracted into the backrest to further improve rear vision.
    • Power side bolsters
      • Want more side support in your power operated Comfort leather seats? The power side bolsters can be electrically adjusted for a tighter fit and enhanced side support – particularly useful for dynamic driving.
    • Front seat ventilation
      • Ventilation in the front seats can make a big difference during long journeys on hot days. The system works by built-in fans drawing air through the perforated leather upholstery in both the cushions and seat backs. The front seat ventilation can be set to three levels. Front seat ventilation is available for the Comfort seats.
    • Front seat ventilation and massage
      • For the ultimate comfort experience in your Volvo, the Comfort seats are available with both a ventilation and a massage function. The seats in perforated leather are ventilated using built-in fans in the cushions and seat backs to provide extra comfort during hot days. And to really spoil you during long journeys, these seats also feature a massage function with ten massage points in the backrest. The massage function has five programs and three adjustable speeds for you to choose from.
    • Power seat cushion extensions
      • Do you have long legs? Then you will appreciate our power seat cushion extensions. Providing efficient thigh support, they will improve your comfort. And they're extra wide to provide generous support independent of your leg positioning. Power operation makes them easy to adjust according to your needs. This convenient feature is included in the Contour seats and optional for the power operated Comfort leather seats.
    • Rear centre armrest with cupholders
      • For more comfort, the rear centre armrest integrated in the second row of seats can be folded down, revealing two cupholders. The rear centre armrest is available with our leather upholsteries.
    • Second seat row storage pockets
      • Conveniently positioned on the backside of the leather-clad front seats, these net pockets help to keep newspapers, magazines, books and other small items at hand for the passengers in the second row of seats. Each net pocket can even store up to three 50 cl bottles.
    • Windscreen ticket holder
      • No more parking tickets blowing off the dashboard top when you close the car door with Volvo’s nifty windscreen ticket holder.

    Climate

    • Clean Zone Interior Package (CZIP)
      • There’s nothing that gets a trip off to a worse start than getting into stuffy car, particularly on a warm day. To prepare a fresh environment in your new Volvo, our Clean Zone Interior package initiates a ventilation cycle, which is triggered when you unlock the car with your remote control. This feature is active on days when it is at least 10°C outside. The Clean Zone Interior Package also does a great job of venting out allergy and asthma inducing substances, especially gases and smells from new materials in your new car. This automatic function is gradually reduced during the first years of usage to finally be terminated.
    • Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)
      • Our Interior Air Quality System is created to give you and your passengers a better and healthier interior environment with clean air and minimised amounts of interior emissions. The system continuously monitors the incoming air quality. As soon as it detects harmful substances – such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and nitrogen dioxides – it temporarily shuts off all incoming air and starts recirculating the air inside the cabin. An active carbon filter effectively filters out harmful substances like vehicle exhaust and diesel exhaust particles. It also reduces some chemical odours from the outside, for example from the windscreen washer fluid. This helps to ensure that the air you breathe in the car is clean, often cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic and tunnels.
    • Four-zone climate system
      • We designed our four-zone climate system to give you and your passengers the best possible interior air quality and comfort in all seasons, all temperatures and all weathers. The efficient, electronically controlled automatic system maintains the cabin temperature you choose. No matter if you're seated in the front seats or in any of the outer second row seats – you can set the cabin temperature and automatic fan speed individually to suit your preferences. The automatic fan function can be set in five different levels to maximise the climate comfort for each occupant. Separate adjustable air vents in the roof pillars ensure that the occupants in the second and third row of seats can enjoy the same climate comfort as the driver and front passenger. And whether you're seated in the front or second row of seats, the cabin climate settings are easily controlled using intuitive touch screen controls – via the central in-dash touch screen, or via the elegant touch control panel on the back of the tunnel console. An efficient cabin filter helps keep the incoming air free from dust, pollen and other particles – a real benefit if you or your passengers are prone to hay fever or other allergies. And adding our Interior Air Quality System, the climate system continuously monitors the incoming air quality. As soon as it detects harmful substances – such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and nitrogen dioxides – it temporarily shuts off all incoming air and starts recirculating the air inside the cabin. An active carbon filter effectively filters out harmful substances like vehicle exhaust and diesel exhaust particles. The four-zone climate system also includes air-conditioned cooling of the glove compartment – very convenient to keep drinks or other heat-sensitive stuff cool and fresh during the journey. And to really maximise climate comfort for the third row passengers when it's warm, a separate air condition unit can be added for this area.
    • Third row air conditioning
      • When it's warm, your passengers in the third row of seats will appreciate having an air conditioning system of their own. This system complements the four-zone climate system and provides an air temperature that follows the second row settings. Separate, adjustable air vents in the roof pillars make it possible for the passengers to regulate the airflow themselves. The separate air conditioning is activated from the central touch screen. It can also be activated when the third row seats are folded and you for example have a pet in the load compartment.
    • Pre ventilation and post climatisation
      • You can conveniently create a comfortable climate in your Volvo before you have entered it. To pre-ventilate the cabin within 40 minutes, the climate system fan can be started remotely from your smartphone using the Volvo On Call app or from inside the car via the centre touch screen. If your car is fitted with a fuel-driven heater, you can start it the same way to achieve and keep a comfortable cabin temperature. In the plug-in hybrid variant, you can also start the electrically driven air-conditioning to create a cool cabin climate when it's hot on the outside. To maintain the cabin temperature after you have turned off the engine and for example are waiting inside the car, you can keep the climate system and ventilation active for up to 15 minutes – all depending on the climate and engine temperature.
    • Adjustable rear air vents
      • Even if you ride in the second or third row of seats, you can adjust the airflow to suit your preferences. Adjustable air vents that are conveniently located in the roof pillars at face level create a comfortable environment for rear seat passengers. They also keep ice and mist off the rear side windows, which makes for a safer journey.
    • Air-conditioned glove compartment
      • The stylish and roomy glove compartment not only keeps order on your documents, pens, credit cards and other stuff. It can also be used to keep drinks or other heat-sensitive stuff cool and fresh during the journey. The glove compartment lid is an uncluttered surface that you open by pressing a button on the centre console – an example of clean Scandinavian design with form and function as one. The air-conditioned glove compartment is included in the four-zone climate system.
    • Air-conditioning remote start
      • Imagine meeting a comfortably climatized cabin every time you get inside your Volvo Plug-In Hybrid – even if it's unbearably hot on the outside. With the air-conditioning remote start, you remotely start your car's engine and air conditioning via the Volvo On Call app in your smartphone. This cools down the cabin just in time to allow you and your passengers a comfortable start of your journey. Depending on local environment regulations, the engine running time can be set between 1 and 15 minutes.
    • Cabin filter
      • Preventing dust and pollen from entering the cabin via the ventilation system, the cabin filter is a real benefit to driver and passengers, especially those prone to hay fever or other allergies.
    • Dark tinted rear windows
      • To make travelling during hot sunny days more comfortable for your rear seat passengers, you can have dark tinted glass in the rear windows and the load compartment windows including the tailgate window. This helps cut glare and keep cabin temperatures down in hot, sunny conditions. For your comfort, it also reduces UV-radiation and adds to the sophisticated look of your Volvo.
    • Heat-reducing windscreen
      • For a more comfortable interior climate, this windscreen reduces heat radiation from the sun through the windscreen and the temperature inside the car by filtering out the sun’s heat-generating invisible infrared rays.
    • Panoramic roof
      • We designed this exclusive panoramic glass roof to give you and all your passengers a superb experience of air and light inside your Volvo. For ventilation, the front section can be opened at the push of a button, either by sliding it over the rear part, or by tilting it in the rear end. A wind deflector and sealing at the sides effectively eliminate wind buffeting and draft. To help maintain climate comfort on sunny days, there's a power operated sunshade in perforated textile that reduces heat and glare while keeping the airy feel inside the cabin. And to increase your comfort when entering your car in sunny days, the sunshade closes automatically as soon as the outside temperature reaches 25° C when your car is parked and locked. Dark tinted laminated glass further increases your climate comfort and security. It also helps protect from UV radiation. And if you've forgot to close the panoramic roof after you've parked your car, it can be closed from the outside with the remote control.
    • Heated front seats
      • We Scandinavians are used to snow and ice. And because we understand cold weather better than most, few cars are better equipped to deal with freezing temperatures than your Volvo.

    Storage

    • Air-conditioned glove compartment
      • The stylish and roomy glove compartment not only keeps order on your documents, pens, credit cards and other stuff. It can also be used to keep drinks or other heat-sensitive stuff cool and fresh during the journey. The glove compartment lid is an uncluttered surface that you open by pressing a button on the centre console – an example of clean Scandinavian design with form and function as one. The air-conditioned glove compartment is included in the four-zone climate system.
    • Glove compartment
      • The glove compartment is an example of clean Scandinavian design with form and function as one. The glove compartment lid is an uncluttered surface that you open by pressing a button on the centre console. No keyholes or handles, and you lock it together with the doors. It's roomy on the inside, with convenient pencil and credit card holders. Illumination makes it easy to find the stuff you're locking for. And if your Volvo is equipped with the four-zone climate system, the glove compartment is air conditioned to keep your drinks cool.
    • Front centre armrest and storage
      • Positioned between the ultra-slim front seats, the stylish front centre armrest emphasize the exclusive Scandinavian interior design with clean lines, genuine materials and superior craftsmanship. You have access to smart storage, two cupholders and a 12 V power outlet under a roll-top cover in the same material as the interior deco panels. The pull/push handle is divided to also provide a small, separate storage in front. The armrest provides generous support for both the driver and front seat passenger, and folded up it displays a generous storage compartment underneath with AUX and USB inputs to connect your external devices – such as your mobile phone – to the audio system.
    • Front door bins
      • During long journeys, the spacious front door bins add to your convenience and comfort. Here you can put the stuff you and the front seat passenger need to have easy at hand. In each of the bin there's room for a 1.5-litre bottle.
    • Rear centre armrest with cupholders

  • Driver's support

    • Sensus Connect
      • With Sensus Connect, you connect with the digital world around you as naturally as you communicate with your Volvo. Intelligent driver interfaces – like the 8-inch digital driver display, the 9-inch central display with touch screen, steering wheel buttons, voice control and the optional head-up display – interact intuitively to give you full control of all functions without taking your attention from the road. Via your smartphone, you have instant access to internet maps and a host of convenient in-car apps – for example to enjoy internet radio, audio books, music streaming, log-in at Facebook and browse the web.

    • Intellisafe Assist
      • We designed our Intellisafe Assist technologies to support you in numerous ways. Whether it's about helping to maintain a safe distance to the vehicle ahead or help ensure you don't stray between the lanes: with Intellisafe Assist you will enjoy an even more relaxed and enjoyable driving experience. Intellisafe Assist includes Intellisafe Standard plus the following technologies: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Distance Alert and Lane Keeping Aid (LKA).
    • Intellisafe Surround
      • With Intellisafe Surround you can enjoy even better lookout around your car and safer driving in conditions with restricted visibility, such as crossings and parking lots. Intellisafe Surround includes Intellisafe Standard plus the following technologies: Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), Rear Collision Warning and Cross Traffic Alert (CTA).
    • Centre display
      • When we created the driver's environment in your Volvo, our main focus was to make it as intuitive and natural as possible. We achieved this by virtually eliminating buttons and switches and moving these controls into our new tablet-sized, 9-inch centre display with touch screen. From here, you intuitively control functions such as climate control, entertainment, navigation, the in-car apps and everything in between to make your drive easy and comfortable. The virtual buttons on the screen are dynamic– when you need the buttons, they become bigger and appear on the lower part of the screen to be easy to find and control. You can also rearrange the virtual buttons to suit your personal preferences. The vertical portrait format of the display makes it easy to use and overview. To make it comfortable and safe for you to view the display while driving, all information is presented in the upper part of the screen while the lower part is dedicated for the touch controls. This format is also convenient when you for example are being guided by the navigation system as it can display more of the road ahead. Highly advanced touch screen technology means your finger barely needs to touch the screen to activate or control a function. Some commands you can perform just by sweeping a finger or a hand across the screen – even with gloves on. Contributing to the elegant clean Scandinavian look of the cabin, the full graphical display is glossy at the same time as anti-reflective coating minimises reflections and glare. And just as with the driver display, the looks and colour scheme of the centre display can be adapted to suit your mood and driving style: Comfort, Eco and Sport. In addition, the look of the display also changes depending on the drive mode you choose.
    • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)
      • We have all experienced that nasty little shock as we are changing lanes and suddenly realise that there’s another vehicle in our blind spot. That’s why we have developed Blind Spot Information System, BLIS, to give you total awareness. The rear-mounted radar sensors cover a large area behind the car and work in various sorts of weather and light conditions, day or night. As a vehicle enters your blind spot or approaches rapidly from behind, this function can alert you via a warning light in the door mirror glass – left and right. Together with the door mirrors, which include a wide-angle mirror on the driver side, this helps you assess the feasibility of a lane change. BLIS is activated once the car exceeds 12 km/h and reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles.
    • Cross Traffic Alert (CTA)
      • Reversing out of a parking space or anywhere else with restricted vision at the sides can be a tricky business. To make these manoeuvres easier and less stressful our Cross Traffic Alert (CTA) uses the rear radar sensors to alert you of crossing traffic from the sides. You will be alerted by an audible warning from the left or right rear loudspeaker and by a graphic warning in the centre display. Alerting for approaching vehicles as well as for pedestrians and cyclists, CTA is especially helpful in tight and crowded areas where the side view might be limited.
    • Lane Keeping Aid (LKA)
      • At speeds between 65 km/h and 200 km/h, Lane Keeping Aid can help prevent single-vehicle road departures as well as collisions caused by temporary distraction. This function uses a digital camera to register the lane markings and help monitor the car’s position on the road. If you get close to a lane marking and LKA senses you are not in full control, the system will gently steer the car back to help keep the car in the lane. And should you nevertheless unintentionally cross the lane marking you'll be alerted by haptic vibrations in the steering wheel or a warning sound. When you intentionally cross a lane marker using the direction indicators, LKA is not activated.
    • Distance Alert
      • Keep control of the distance to the vehicle in front and rest assured your Volvo will alert if you come to close. If the Adaptive Cruise Control is disengaged and a vehicle in front comes too close, the distance alert function activates a warning light to help you keep a proper distance. The warning light is displayed on the windscreen, from head-up LEDs on the dashboard or with a symbol if your car is equipped with the full-graphic head-up display.
    • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
      • Helping you to maintain your preset gap to vehicles in front at all speeds up to 200 km/h, the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a supportive partner for a more relaxed driving experience on any journey. Just select the desired speed and the desired time gap to the vehicle in front. When the radar sensor detects a slower vehicle in front, the speed automatically adapts to that vehicle. And when the road is clear, the car resumes the selected speed. At speeds over 70 km/h ACC also makes overtaking more convenient: simply turning the indicator on, ACC will briefly accelerate your car for a more efficient and fast overtaking. Whenever you want, you can also select conventional cruise control.
    • Rear Collision Warning
      • Being hit by a car from behind is one of the most common types of collisions. To help you avoid this type of accidents we created the radar based Rear Collision Warning system. If a vehicle approaches fast from behind and the system calculates that there's a risk of collision, it helps alert the driver in the approaching vehicle by flashing your hazard lights at a high rate. And if a collision still can not be avoided, the Rear Collision Warning system tensions the safety belts just before the impact to help keep all occupants safely restrained. To help reduce the strain on the occupants at the impact the system also activates full auto-­braking if your car is at standstill.
    • Pilot Assist
      • Driving in slow moving city traffic with a lot of stop and go can be quite a drag. Our Pilot Assist function relieves you from the need to constantly adapt the speed. Using radar and camera technology it automatically keeps the set speed and distance to the vehicle in front – already from standstill. While constantly monitoring your position between the lane markings it also adjusts the steering to help keep you within the lane in city traffic. From standstill, a press of a button or the accelerator is all it takes to make your Volvo smoothly tail the vehicle in front. Pilot Assist is active from standstill up to speeds of 50 km/h.
    • Road Sign Information (RSI)
      • With RSI you don't have to miss important road signs. A forward camera detects speed limit, "no overtaking", "no entry" and various types of supplementary signs. The actual sign is then displayed in the speedometer or in the head-up display – to help keep you constantly alert on current restrictions. If you want, RSI can also alert you with a visual warning if you exceed the speed limit, by flashing gently three times. This is easily set in the centre console menu.
    • Voice control
      • Your Volvo not only inspires your drive. It can also listen to your commands and fulfil your wishes. To control functions like the climate system, navigation, entertainment and phone, you just have to raise your voice and tell your Volvo what you want. You can talk naturally, just as you were talking to a friend – no complicated menus of words. Our voice control perfectly complements the central display and steering wheel controls, allowing you to keep the hands on the steering wheel and your attention on traffic and the road ahead.
    • Steering wheel controls
      • Every little detail in your Volvo is there for a reason – to give you a great experience and facilitate life in your car. For example, the button controls that are neatly integrated in the steering wheel design. From here you can control several functions like cruise control, phone, infotainment, trip computer and the driver information menu in the driver display – all without taking your hands off the wheel. And to make your Volvo response even more intuitively to your commands, you can use voice control that is conveniently activated at the press of a steering wheel button.
    • Illuminated vanity mirrors
      • Fitted in the sun visors for the driver and front seat passenger, lights come on when you open the vanity mirror cover – convenient and practical. Integrated ticket holders further enhance your convenience.
    • Fog lamp with cornering function
      • At speeds of up to 40 km/h, the optional fog lamp with cornering function illuminates the area in which you’re turning at up to 15 degrees around the car for safer manoeuvring – for instance if you’re parking, turning into a small road or driving through a narrow gateway at night. To enhance your control during reversing in the dark, the cornering light activates on both sides to illuminate the area around your car.
    • Automatic headlamp levelling
      • The light beams from the LED headlights are automatically kept at the optimum level to provide you with the best vision without dazzling other road-users, regardless of load and the amount of passengers. The system acts swiftly and will even maintain the headlight level during fast acceleration.
    • Park assist sensors, rear
      • Activated when you reverse or if the car rolls backwards with the gear in neutral, the rear park assist sensors help you when manoeuvring into tight spaces. The audio system is turned down and a pulsating sound from the rear loudspeakers increases in frequency as the car gets closer to the obstacle, becoming a continuous tone when it’s time to stop. The centre display shows a graphical top view of the car and the distance to detected obstacles.
    • Power door mirrors
      • You easily adjust the aerodynamic yet generously dimensioned door mirrors from your position in the driver's seat. To protect your door mirrors from damage while the car for example is parked or driving through a car wash, press both buttons for the left and right mirror at the same time to fold them flat against the car. They can also be set to fold or unfold automatically every time you lock or unlock the car. To facilitate parking, the door mirrors can tilt automatically (or by the push of a button) to show you the kerb when reversing. Contributing to your safety when it's cold, the door mirrors are electrically heated together with the rear window and therefore kept free from frost. And to make sure that a following car’s headlights don’t dazzle you when driving in the dark, you can add an auto-dimming function that reduces intrusive light reflection via the door mirrors.
    • Power parking brake
      • The power parking brake is easily engaged by pulling the control upwards. You can also set the parking brake to engage automatically every time you stop the engine. It is released automatically as soon as you press the accelerator with the transmission in the DRIVE or REVERSE mode – very convenient when moving off from steep gradients. You can also release it manually by pressing the control downwards.
    • Power folding outer rear head restraints, second row
      • Helping to increase your field of vision when the second row of seats is unoccupied, the outer head restraints can be folded forward at the push of a button from the driver's seat. In the folded position, the head restraints are designed to obstruct passengers from sitting down without raising them to their upright position. The height-adjustable rear middle head restraint can be fully retracted into the backrest to further improve rear vision.
    • Heated windscreen
      • Standing outside your car scraping off the ice on a cold winter’s morning isn’t the best start to your day. Now, thanks to our heated windscreen, all you need to do is push a button. When you do, the windscreen will start de-icing immediately just like the rear window and door mirrors, and you’ll soon be on your way.
    • Heated windscreen washer nozzles
      • To give you the best possible vision even in heavy rain or snow at all speeds, extremely efficient washer nozzles are integrated into the wiper arms and apply fluid above the wiper blades. By adding heating that prevents the washer fluid to freeze in the nozzles, the windscreen can be washed even in the harshest conditions.
    • Speed limiter
      • Your Volvo will help to ensure that you do not speed limits. Set a speed limit of your choice or allow automatic setting using information from the Road Sign Information System. When you reach the set speed, your car will help ensure you not exceed that speed unless you depress the accelerator fully for a moment. In the driver's display, you can see the set speed.
    • Head-up display
      • Driving your Volvo, you never have to look away from the road. The head-up display presents the most vital driver information as it's hovering two metres in front of the windscreen. You can keep your eyes on the traffic at the same time as you, for example, get information from the navigation system. You don't have to change focus or look down, which also gives less strain on the eyes. The brightness of the head-up display adapts automatically to the light conditions, and you can set the system to suit your own personal preferences.
    • 360° camera
      • With our 360° camera you can see a virtual bird's eye view of the area surrounding your Volvo. A high-resolution image is shown in the centre display and will be a great help for example when manoeuvring or reversing in tight areas with impaired visibility – you can even see what's going around the corner at a 180° side view in front or at the rear of your car. The system uses four hidden cameras: two at the door mirrors, one at the front and one at the rear. And by gently touching the camera images on the centre display touch screen, you can get a view from just that camera. The rear camera can also be switched to a zoomed-in view close to the car – very convenient when hitching a trailer, for example.
    • 8-inch driver display
      • From the moment you take your position behind the wheel of your Volvo, you'll feel you're in control. In the full graphical digital driver display in front of you, all relevant driver information – including navigation directions, telephone and actual road signs – is intuitively displayed. The 8-inch display features one big central instrument that is surrounded by additional information displays. To ensure that all information is presented as clearly and comfortably for your eyes as possible, the brightness of the display adapts automatically according to the exterior light conditions. Like, for example, when the sun shines through the windows or there are lights from vehicles behind when it's dark. It also adapts when you're driving through a tunnel and at night. The driver display can also be seen by the front seat passenger. When the ignition is off, the display has a glossy black, hi-tech look to enhance the exclusive impression every time you enter your Volvo.
    • 12.3-inch driver display
      • From the moment you take your position behind the wheel of your Volvo, you'll feel you're in control. In the full graphical digital driver display in front of you, all relevant driver information – including navigation directions, telephone and actual road signs – is intuitively displayed. Our top-of-the-line 12.3-inch display features two large round instruments and one central information display. Depending on how you use it, the size of the information display adapts to give you the best visual experience. For example, if you use the navigation system, that display becomes bigger and the two instruments smaller. Further contributing to your driving experience, you can choose between different looks and colour schemes to adapt the display to the mood you're in. There's a choice of three display modes: Comfort, Eco and Sport. In addition, the look of the display also changes depending on the drive mode you choose. The mode you select, also applies for the 9-inch central display. To ensure that all information is presented as clearly and comfortably for your eyes as possible, the brightness of the display adapts automatically according to the exterior light conditions. Like, for example, when the sun shines through the windows or there are lights from vehicles behind when it's dark. It also adapts when you're driving through a tunnel and at night. The driver display can also be seen by the front seat passenger. When the ignition is off, the display has a glossy black, hi-tech look to enhance the exclusive impression every time you enter your Volvo.
    • Interior lighting
      • Good lighting is the key to creating the right atmosphere. This is as true in your car as it is in your home. When you unlock your Volvo, the interior light together with foot well lights and mood lights are illuminated. And when a front door is opened, light under the door illuminates the ground by courtesy to help you avoid stepping into, for example, a puddle of water. In addition, illuminated tread plates and a light guide along the dashboard and the four doors create a welcoming feel inside your Volvo. The discrete mood lights further contributes to a warm and cosy atmosphere when travelling. Front reading lamps are integrated in the roof console. The rear seat reading lamps are recessed in the roof and shaded to avoid dazzling the driver. The interior light will fade out gradually after the doors have been closed, but will switch off immediately if the ignition is turned on or the doors are locked.

This also makes it easy to see and find things in the dark. Front reading lamps are integrated in the roof console. The rear seat reading lamps are recessed in the roof and shaded to avoid dazzling the driver. The interior light will fade out gradually after the doors have been closed, but will switch off immediately if the ignition is turned on or the doors are locked. And to facilitate loading or unloading your car in the dark, the tailgate working light lights up when you open the tailgate. (Standard on Inscription and R-Design)
    • Cruise control
      • Conveniently operated from the steering wheel, cruise control allows you to drive in a more relaxed way without having to keep your foot on the accelerator. The car maintains the speed you choose until you turn off the cruise control or press the brake or accelerator. After braking, the car returns to its previous cruising speed at the touch of a button. After accelerating – for instance to overtake – your car automatically reverts to its previous cruising speed once you release the accelerator.
    • Trip computer
      • Operated via the indicator stalk, the trip computer shows current and average fuel consumption, how far the fuel will take you and average speed – helping you drive more economically.
    • Volvo Full-LED Active Beam
      • Journeys after dark have just become a lot more enjoyable – and safer – thanks to our new Full-LED Active Beam, available as an option. Advanced LED light technology allows a supremely wide and long light pattern – the light is more than twice as strong as conventional halogen lights. And helping you to see around corners at night, the lights turn up to 30 degrees in either direction with the steering. And with this system, you don’t need to keep flicking between low and high beam*, which is not only annoying – according to several studies, it’s also a major cause of night-time accidents. With our new system, your headlights stay on high beam all the time. When another car approaches from the opposite direction, the system prevents dazzling the other driver by shading out only as much of your beam as necessary – no more, no less. Still, the LED headlights will illuminate the areas around the other car with high beam. The same applies to cars in front of you. The system can even recognise pedestrians and cyclists and avoids dazzling them, too – it can keep track of ten separate objects at the same time. And because the system is intelligent, the high beam shuts off when you enter a city, but if you drive past an illuminated sign – say a filling station or supermarket – it stays on so you can see what’s coming up. This means you benefit from safety as well as convenience. During daytime, the distinctive hammer shaped light-guides not only act as daytime running lights to make your car more conspicuous – they also flash in a warm colour when indicating. And when the dipped headlights are needed for illumination, they are automatically engaged by a twilight sensor. Contributing to improved fuel economy and lower running costs, the LED lights are extremely energy efficient and last the lifetime of the car without losing any luminance. *Applies for Full-LED Active Beam technology. Cars with halogen lights shift automatically between high and low beam.
    • Ambient temperature gauge
      • Stay tuned about the weather-dependent road conditions. This temperature gauge monitors the outside temperature and warns you if there is any risk of black ice.
    • Park Assist Pilot
      • Take away the fuss of parking and let your car park itself – no matter if you're about to parallel park along the street or manoeuvre into a perpendicular parking space. At the press of a button, Park Assist Pilot scans the parking slot using ultrasonic sensor technology. The system alerts you if the slot is spacious enough (minimum 1.2 x the length of the car at parallel parking). Then just follow the instructions in the driver information display. You control the speed and direction of your car, while Park Assist Pilot takes over the steering until you're perfectly parked. It can also assist you when steering out of a tight parallel parking space. Park Assist Pilot also includes front and rear park assist sensors that help you when manoeuvring into tight spaces. The centre display shows a graphical top view of the car and the distance to detected obstacles.
    • Inner and outer rear view mirrors with Auto Dim
      • One of the most annoying things about night driving is the blinding glare from other cars’ headlights. Our generously dimensioned door mirrors are made of chromatic glass that automatically dims to diminish glare from traffic behind you. The mirrors use an internal sensor to monitor light conditions and recognise glare from headlights. When this is detected, the inner and outer rear view mirrors will darken simultaneously to the exact degree necessary. Once the source of the glare disappears, the glass returns to its normal state automatically.
    • Driver adjustable power steering
      • To adapt the speed-dependent power steering characteristics to your own personal preferences, you can add driver adjustable power steering. While the steering assistance adjusts automatically depending on your car’s speed, you can choose in the centre display between three levels of overall steering feel and sensitivity – for low, medium or high steering assistance through the entire speed range.
    • Rain sensor
      • Once activated, the rain sensor can start the windscreen wipers as soon as it begins to rain or if water splashes onto the windscreen. For your convenience, it can also automatically adapt the intermittent windscreen-wiper function. Its sensitivity can be adjusted via a ring on the wiper stalk.
    • Daytime Running Lights with daylight sensor
      • With the light switch in the Auto position, the fuel-saving Daytime Running Lights are automatically activated. If the daylight becomes to dim, or if you enter a tunnel for example, a sensor will detect the changed light conditions and activate your car's headlights. They will also be activated if you turn on the windscreen wipers or the rear fog light. The system will turn the headlights automatically as well. In the LED headlights, the Daytime Running Lights have a unique hammer-shaped look that enhances the powerful design of your Volvo.
    • Automatically dimmed inner rear-view mirror
      • The frameless inner rear-view mirror is a true piece of Scandinavian design. Ending the need to take your hand off the steering wheel and stop headlight beams shining in your eyes, the anti-dazzle function is stepless and returns to normal when it's no longer needed.
    • Power windows, front and rear
      • The power windows have controls conveniently located in the door armrests. The front windows can be lowered or raised with a quick press or pull of a button, and you can lock the back windows from the driver’s seat if you’re travelling with small children. In this case, you’ll also be glad of the automatic anti-clamp protection, which will stop a window from closing on a trapped little hand.
    • Speed-dependent power steering
      • You can enjoy pliant and comfortable steering at all speeds. The speed-dependent and progressive power steering uses sophisticated, speed-sensitive technology to regulate the amount of power assistance you need while driving. At highway speeds, the steering is firm and positive. When parking or in slow traffic, the steering is light and effortless.

  • Load compartment

    • Adjustable rear height
      • When you load or unload your Volvo SUV, the possibility offered by the optional air-suspension system to lower the rear end of the car with up to 5 cm is very convenient – particularly when you're dealing with heavy items. A push of a button inside the load compartment, and you don't have to lift your loads as high. This feature is also helpful when hitching a caravan or a trailer.
    • Second seat row
      • Designed for maximum comfort during hours of travelling, the three individual seats on the second row provide generous body support and can be individually reclined in seven steps to suit personal preferences. In the seven-seat version, each seat on the second row also slides individually to further enhance legroom in the third row of seats. This also makes it easier to adapt the load compartment, for example when you need to haul bulky loads together with passengers. If needed, each seat also folds individually into the load compartment floor for maximum versatility. The middle seat can be equipped with an integrated booster cushion and can slide forward additionally for even better elbow space or to put the child in even closer contact with parents in the front seats.
    • Load cover
      • Fitted behind the second row of seats, this retractable load cover conceals your gear in the load compartment. If you press the load cover handle downwards, the load cover automatically retracts halfway to give you convenient access to the load compartment. And when not needed, the load cover is easily detached and can be stored diagonally on the load compartment floor.
    • Flat-folding three-split rear seat
      • Each passenger seat backrest on the second row can be folded individually to give you the chance to carry passengers and cargo at the same time. What's more, fold down part or all of the three-split rear seat and you'll have easy access to a spacious load compartment with a completely flat load surface. And by folding flat the middle seat backrest, you can transport long loads while still carrying passengers in complete comfort and safety. Finally, for added comfort and versatility, the seats in the second row of the seven-seat version can slide forward for even more load space.
    • Power outlet and load holding strap, load compartment
      • By adding a 12V power outlet in the load compartment, you'll easily be able to connect extra electrical equipment such as an electric cooler box for your refreshments. An elastic load holding strap above a recess in the right hand corner of the load compartment floor allows you to place and hold smaller items in the recess.
    • Shopping bag holder
      • You don't have to worry about grocery bags falling over in the load compartment. This convenient holder folds up from the load compartment floor to accommodate shopping bags or other cargo – secure with hooks and an elastic strap. When not in use, it's hidden in the floor.
    • Third seat row
      • The seven-seat version offers a third row of seats that makes it possible to comfortably accommodate up to six passengers whenever the need arises. The two individual seats in the third row are generously proportioned to offer class-leading comfort for two passengers up to 170 cm. In the third row they ride comfortably with good foot space, legroom and headroom. The two seats are centred close to each other to give the occupants a good front view for a more enjoyable ride. This area can also be fitted with its own air conditioning system, including adjustable ventilation vents. To facilitate getting in and out of the third row, the outer seats of the second row can be conveniently folded and pushed forward using a handle on top of the backrest. And when the third row of seats is not needed or you need extra space for luggage and gear, each seat is easily folded into the load compartment floor.
    • Shopping bag hooks
      • After shopping, the two integrated folding hooks in the load compartment side panels will take care of up to two shopping bags. They fold out from the side panel at a push. And when retracted, they are completely flush with the side panel to not obstruct when you load or unload your car.
    • Versatile load compartment
      • We designed the load compartment of your XC90 to be as versatile as possible, without compromising on style. For example, the load compartment has a regular shape and the rear-wheel suspension is designed not to intrude on the load area. The extremely flexible seating with individually foldable seats in both the second and third row makes it easy to safely and comfortably bring both people and cargo in your Volvo. With all rear seats folded you will have a completely flat load area of 1,950 litres, allowing you to carry really big loads. The maximum load volume behind the second row of seats in the rear-most position is 651 litres, and if you have raised the third row of seats in the seven-seat version you will still have a surprisingly large load compartment of 291 litres.
    • Power tailgate
      • When you for example approach your car and your hands are full, the power tailgate can be very convenient. It can be opened or closed automatically in three different ways: with the remote control, using the button on the dashboard, or by pressing a button on the tailgate. To help minimise risk of injury when closing the tailgate, sensors around the tailgate opening can detect obstructions to help avoid pinching your fingers and stop the tailgate. And if something gets in the way when opening, the tailgate stops. The power tailgate can also be programmed to open to a lower height than its maximum. This can be very useful if you for example park your car in a garage with limited roof height. For extra convenience, you can add keyless locking/unlocking that includes hands-free opening and closing of the power tailgate.
    • Hands-free tailgate opening and closing
      • When your hands are full after shopping, the comfort opening function of your power tailgate can make a big difference: wave your foot under the sensor in the rear bumper, and it opens or closes automatically.

    Load securing

    • Safety net
      • Fitted behind the second row of seats or behind the front seats, the nylon protective net protects passengers from loose luggage when braking sharply and can be stored beneath the load compartment floor when it isn't needed.
    • Load securing eyelets
      • Part of our load safety system, the four elegantly designed eyelets help you secure cargo to the load compartment floor with either load securing straps or the elastic luggage net. When not in use, they are folded flush with the surrounding surface to not impede during loading or unloading. This also adds to the stylish impression of the load compartment.

    Towing

    • Air suspension and Four-C
      • With the air suspension system you give your Volvo an even greater breadth of dynamic ability. Instead of traditional springs, this technology is based on separate air chambers for each wheel. Controlled by a computerised compressor, each air chamber constantly adapts to the driving conditions. Together with our Four-C electronically controlled damping system, this gives you unique opportunities to control and adapt the suspension according to your driving desires. You can select different drive modes, all to increase the car´s versatility in all road and weather conditions. In Comfort mode, the air suspension is tuned for maximum comfort, while Eco mode lowers the car with 20 mm at speeds over 70 km/h for improved aerodynamics and lower fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. Dynamic mode enhances the car's sporty characteristics with firmer, more dynamic suspension and lowers the car with 20 mm. And in order to maximise your capability on rough roads, the Off road mode increases ground clearance by 40 mm. You can also create your own personal settings in the Individual mode and save them in the remote key memory. The modes are simple to switch between using the elegant and ergonomic roller control in the console between the front seats. To maintain comfort and driving characteristics in all circumstances, the air suspension constantly keeps the car at the same ride height and level regardless of the number of passengers or the weight of the cargo. At speeds above 100 km/h, the air suspension automatically lowers by the car 10 mm to reduce drag and further enhance high-speed stability. And to make it easier to get in and out of the car, you can easily lower the parked car by around 40 mm. When you have to load or unload heavy items or attach a trailer to the tow bar, you can lower the rear of the car with 50 mm by pushing a button inside the load area.
    • 360° camera
      • With our 360° camera you can see a virtual bird's eye view of the area surrounding your Volvo. A high-resolution image is shown in the centre display and will be a great help for example when manoeuvring or reversing in tight areas with impaired visibility – you can even see what's going around the corner at a 180° side view in front or at the rear of your car. The system uses four hidden cameras: two at the door mirrors, one at the front and one at the rear. And by gently touching the camera images on the centre display touch screen, you can get a view from just that camera. The rear camera can also be switched to a zoomed-in view close to the car – very convenient when hitching a trailer, for example.

    Load carriers

    • Roof rails with black-coloured feet
      • Roof rails highlight the versatility of your Volvo – as well as the elegant styling. They also make it easy to attach Volvo's flexible load carrier system. The roof rails are made of anodized aluminium with classic black-coloured feet, and are aerodynamically designed for minimum wind noise.
    • Bright integrated roof rails
      • These smoothly integrated aluminium roof rails further enhance the dynamic design of your Volvo and make it easy to utilise Volvo's load carrying system. They're aerodynamically designed to help keep down wind noise and fuel consumption.
  • Engines

    • Four-cylinder 2.0-litre supercharged and turbocharged engine (T6 AWD)
      • Do you want an exhilarating drive, but won't compromise with fuel consumption and environmental care? With our lightweight Drive-E powertrain generation no efforts have been spared to give you the most efficient, confident and exciting driving experience – for today as well as for the future. Utilising state-of-the-art engine technology and innovative out-of-the-box thinking, our engineers have created a range of 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines with the same power output and driveability as considerably larger engines with six cylinders or more. And what's even better – the fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions are supremely low. Low friction technology, innovative engine management systems, common rail direct fuel injection and combined supercharger/turbo technology are some of the secrets behind this marvel of pure efficiency – the supercharger gives more torque at low revs for a great throttle response, with the turbo boost kicking in at higher revs. Our Start/Stop technology and engine braking energy regeneration help you to reduce fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions even more. And low engine weight contributes to agile handling on winding roads. Together with the fuel-saving eight-speed Geartronic automatic transmission, the 320 hp/400 Nm T6 drivetrain ensures you'll always be in the right gear to enjoy superior comfort and engine response. And if you'd like to boost your efficiency even further, our intelligent ECO function optimises the engine, the automatic transmission and the climate system to further lower your fuel consumption with about 5%. To adapt the engine characteristics to your preferences or driving conditions, you can add a function that allows you to choose between different drive modes for the engine, gearbox and the optional air-suspension – Comfort, Eco, Dynamic, Off road and Individual mode. Using the ergonomic roller control in the centre console between the front seats, you conveniently switch between the different modes. For ultimate driving dynamics, this engine is mated to our All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction™.
    • Four-cylinder 2.0-litre supercharged and turbocharged petrol plug-in hybrid engine (T8 Twin Engine)
      • Imagine having access to 376 hp and a maximum torque of 620 Nm, yet minimising your impact on the environment. In our petrol plug-in hybrid T8 Twin Engine, a high-performance supercharged/turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine combine with a powerful electric motor to give you an exhilarating driving experience while keeping fuel consumption and CO2 emissions to a minimum. And you don't have to worry about the range – in pure, zero emission electric mode the driving range is up to 40 km (a typical commute). And when that isn't enough, the petrol engine can be called upon anytime. With the T8 Twin Engine you can choose between several drive modes to suit your preferences and the driving conditions. In Hybrid mode both the electric motor and the petrol engine are utilised, individually or parallel, to optimise performance, fuel consumption and comfort. Pure/Eco mode prioritises electric operation and low energy consumption, helping you to maximise driving on hybrid battery power for example in the city. Power mode, on the other hand, means that the electric motor and petrol engine works in parallel to maximise performance, sporty characteristics and quick response. This also means that both the front and rear wheels are driven. AWD mode activates all-wheel drive to improve traction, primarily at low speeds and in slippery conditions. And when driving on really poor roads at speeds below 40 km/h, you can activate the Off road mode that will facilitate driving in difficult situations. There's also a Save for later mode that allows you to optimally charge the battery while driving so that the battery's energy level always will provide about 20 km of pure electric driving. You can also tailor your very own individual driving mode. Using the ergonomic roller control in the centre console between the front seats, you switch between the different modes. So your XC90 can be a silent-running zero-emission city car, a potent open-road cruiser or a reassuring companion in slippery conditions – all while keeping the environmental impact at a minimum. And the fuel-saving eight-speed Geartronic® automatic transmission ensures you'll always be in the right gear to enjoy superior comfort and engine response.
    • Four-cylinder 2.0-litre twin turbo-charged diesel engine (D5 AWD)
      • Experience power, efficiency and refinement without compromises.

Our All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction™ will increase driving dynamics and traction in all conditions.

    Transmission

    • Eight-speed Geartronic automatic transmission
      • Do you want an intuitive, responsive powertrain that feels like an extension of your senses? Mated to our all-new generation turbocharged four-cylinder Drive-E engines, this eight-speed automatic transmission ensures you're always in the right gear – whether it's for optimal engine response and driveability, or for a smooth driving experience with the highest fuel-efficiency. And offering faster and more precise gear changes in the manual mode, our gearshift paddles will add even more fun behind the steering wheel.
    • Gearshift paddles
      • If you enjoy driving, our new gearshift paddles for the automatic transmission will add even more fun behind the steering wheel. They offer faster and more precise manual gear changes. And by allowing you to keep your hands on the steering wheel, they also ensure you’re always 100 per cent in control of your car. (Only on R-Design)
    • Start/Stop technology
      • Imagine how much energy could be saved if every car, at every traffic light in the world, switched off its engine… Our Start/Stop technology does just that. Once your engine has warmed up, and you bring your car to a halt, the engine automatically shuts off. And the instant you press the accelerator, the engine restarts and you’re on the go. It reduces fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions by up to 8%. An extra battery ensures that all infotainment and comfort systems function as usual while the engine is off. The Start/Stop system can be deactivated in the centre display and is active between -5° and +30°C.
    • All-wheel Drive (AWD)
      • The advanced AWD technology with Instant Traction™ helps increase driving stability and traction on all road surfaces, in all weather conditions. It has an electronic management system that constantly monitors the speed of the wheels, the throttle, engine torque, engine speed and the brakes. As driving conditions change, wheels with the best grip get the most power. When a tyre loses traction, power is reduced to that wheel and instantly transferred to the more sure-footed wheels. Under normal, dry conditions practically all the power is distributed to the front wheels to minimise fuel consumption without compromising on stability. And when needed, up to 50% of the engine's power can be distributed to the rear wheels. At standstill, full all-wheel drive is always engaged to prepare for maximum traction. This facilitates take-off in slippery conditions or if you for example pull a boat trailer up a ramp.
    • Hill Start Assist
      • Hill Start Assist automatically keeps the brake pressure while you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator, so you’ll never slide backwards or stall your engine again when driving off up an incline. Hill Start Assist also works in reverse gear.
    • Hill Descent Control
      • Hill Descent Control offers a smooth and controlled hill descent on steep, rough and slippery roads. Simply push the Hill Descent Control button and the vehicle will descend using the brake system to control each wheel’s rotating speed – you are then free to concentrate fully on steering. Hill Descent Control also makes it easier to move off when towing a heavy trailer or a boat on a trailer up a ramp. The technology also works in reverse gear.

    Chassis & Steering

    • Chassis
      • The chassis of your Volvo has been tuned to deliver a refined, smooth ride as well as sharp handling. All to give you a car that is just as comfortable and fun to drive on challenging country roads as it is on the highway. The advanced aluminium double wishbone suspensions at the front wheels provide perfectly balanced road holding and steering characteristics. At the rear, an exclusive Integral axle allows all characteristics to be individually tuned for your comfort and enjoyment. Extensive use of aluminium and a transverse lightweight leaf spring in composite material at the rear (unless the car is equipped with air-suspension) reduce the unsprung weight, which is essential for road holding and comfort. Reducing the total weight of the car, this also contributes to low fuel consumption. Very generous ground clearance and short overhangs contribute to an excellent performance on rough roads with a great ability to go off-road, too.
    • Drive modes
      • To adapt the engine characteristics to your preferences or driving conditions, you can add a function that allows you to choose between different drive modes for the engine, gearbox and the optional air-suspension – Comfort, Eco, Dynamic, Off road and Individual mode. Comfort mode is programmed to give you maximum comfort. Eco mode calibrates the engine and gearbox for lowest possible fuel consumption. Dynamic mode is calibrated for sporty driving, with quick engine and gearbox responses. In this mode, the digital driver display changes automatically to the Sport setting to further enhance the experience. Off road mode can be set at speeds below 20 km/h to maximise the car's performance on poor roads and facilitate driving in difficult situations. Individual mode allows you to create your own personal drive mode and save it in your remote key memory. In Eco mode, the accelerator has a softer, less responsive function and the gearbox changes up at lower engine speeds. An Eco-Coast function helps the driver utilise the car's kinetic energy, and when the accelerator is released at speeds above 65 km/h there is no engine braking and the car rolls freely while saving fuel. This mode also turns off the air conditioning and reduces other auxiliary loads to minimise fuel consumption. In the Individual mode, you can tailor your own personal drive mode and store your settings in the remote control memory. Every time you open your car with that remote, the stored driving mode is activated. Using the ergonomic roller control in the centre console between the front seats, you conveniently switch between the different modes.
    • Air suspension and Four-C
      • With the air suspension system you give your Volvo an even greater breadth of dynamic ability. Instead of traditional springs, this technology is based on separate air chambers for each wheel. Controlled by a computerised compressor, each air chamber constantly adapts to the driving conditions.

You can select different drive modes, all to increase the car´s versatility in all road and weather conditions. In Comfort mode, the air suspension is tuned for maximum comfort, while Eco mode lowers the car with 20 mm at speeds over 70 km/h for improved aerodynamics and lower fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. Dynamic mode enhances the car's sporty characteristics with firmer, more dynamic suspension and lowers the car with 20 mm. And in order to maximise your capability on rough roads, the Off road mode increases ground clearance by 40 mm. You can also create your own personal settings in the Individual mode and save them in the remote key memory. The modes are simple to switch between using the elegant and ergonomic roller control in the console between the front seats. To maintain comfort and driving characteristics in all circumstances, the air suspension constantly keeps the car at the same ride height and level regardless of the number of passengers or the weight of the cargo. At speeds above 100 km/h, the air suspension automatically lowers by the car 10 mm to reduce drag and further enhance high-speed stability. And to make it easier to get in and out of the car, you can easily lower the parked car by around 40 mm. When you have to load or unload heavy items or attach a trailer to the tow bar, you can lower the rear of the car with 50 mm by pushing a button inside the load area.
    • Electronic Stability Control
      • It can catch you out when you least expect it. And it really is a heart-stopping moment when, on a rain-slicked or ice-covered road, the tail of your car steps out as it threatens to go into a skid. Steer into that skid and you can end up fishtailing, and ultimately, going into a spin. This is precisely the kind of scenario that has made Electronic Stability Control one of the most vital safety advances of the past decade. The system looks at factors like what direction the car is travelling, how fast the wheels are rotating and how much steering lock is applied. Using all this information, Electronic Stability Control can detect a potential skid and take action to prevent it by reducing engine power and/or braking the appropriate wheels. It can also prevent the wheels from locking during engine braking or when changing to a lower gear in slippery conditions, using Engine Drag Control (EDC). To further reduce the risk of losing traction in emergency manoeuvres and corner with high lateral forces, the function Advanced Stability Control senses the car's roll movement and lateral acceleration. But Automatic Stability Control is also about giving you a rewarding driving experience, too, so when you’re cornering enthusiastically the car will feel even more dynamically stable. Another feature that means you’ll experience sharper turn-in to corners, less understeer, more powerful acceleration and more fun behind the wheel is our Corner Traction Control with torque vectoring. It works by braking the inside driven wheel if it starts to lose its grip through a corner, while sending the power to the outer wheel instead. Our new Understeer Control Logic is another innovative technology that further helps minimise understeer tendencies for more stable and dynamic cornering. And if you’re in the mood for a bit of performance driving, Electronic Stability Control has a Sport Mode. It cuts out the engine power reducing function and allows a controlled amount of rear wheel slip, as long as it senses that the driver is using the steering wheel and accelerator in a dynamic way and as long as it doesn’t go too far, in which case it will return to the normal Electronic Stability Control-function.
    • Roll-Over Protection System
      • To help protect passengers in a rollover situation, Our Roll-Over Protection System is activated by a sensor that monitors the vehicle’s lean angle. In the event of a rollover the safety belt pre-tensioners are activated for every seat to help keep passengers more securely in place. At the same time, the Inflatable Curtain deploys to help protect against secondary impacts.
    • Roll Stability Control
      • In the event of an emergency manoeuvre, Volvo’s Roll Stability Control can step in to help prevent the vehicle from rolling over. It features a gyroscopic sensor that registers the vehicle’s lean angle and rollover risk. If required, Roll Stability Control will cut engine power or brake one or more of the wheels just enough to reduce the centrifugal force and help regain balance.
    • Driver adjustable power steering
      • To adapt the speed-dependent power steering characteristics to your own personal preferences, you can add driver adjustable power steering. While the steering assistance adjusts automatically depending on your car’s speed, you can choose in the centre display between three levels of overall steering feel and sensitivity – for low, medium or high steering assistance through the entire speed range.
    • Speed-dependent power steering
      • You can enjoy pliant and comfortable steering at all speeds. The speed-dependent and progressive power steering uses sophisticated, speed-sensitive technology to regulate the amount of power assistance you need while driving. At highway speeds, the steering is firm and positive. When parking or in slow traffic, the steering is light and effortless.
  • Inside

    • Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)
      • Our Interior Air Quality System is created to give you and your passengers a better and healthier interior environment with clean air and minimised amounts of interior emissions. The system continuously monitors the incoming air quality. As soon as it detects harmful substances – such as carbon monoxide, hydrocarbon and nitrogen dioxides – it temporarily shuts off all incoming air and starts recirculating the air inside the cabin. An active carbon filter effectively filters out harmful substances like vehicle exhaust and diesel exhaust particles. It also reduces some chemical odours from the outside, for example from the windscreen washer fluid. This helps to ensure that the air you breathe in the car is clean, often cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic and tunnels.
    • Clean Zone Interior Package (CZIP)
      • There’s nothing that gets a trip off to a worse start than getting into stuffy car, particularly on a warm day. To prepare a fresh environment in your new Volvo, our Clean Zone Interior package initiates a ventilation cycle, which is triggered when you unlock the car with your remote control. This feature is active on days when it is at least 10°C outside. The Clean Zone Interior Package also does a great job of venting out allergy and asthma inducing substances, especially gases and smells from new materials in your new car. This automatic function is gradually reduced during the first years of usage to finally be terminated.
    • Cabin filter
      • Preventing dust and pollen from entering the cabin via the ventilation system, the cabin filter is a real benefit to driver and passengers, especially those prone to hay fever or other allergies.

    • Drive modes
      • To adapt the engine characteristics to your preferences or driving conditions, you can add a function that allows you to choose between different drive modes for the engine, gearbox and the optional air-suspension – Comfort, Eco, Dynamic, Off road and Individual mode. Comfort mode is programmed to give you maximum comfort. Eco mode calibrates the engine and gearbox for lowest possible fuel consumption. Dynamic mode is calibrated for sporty driving, with quick engine and gearbox responses. In this mode, the digital driver display changes automatically to the Sport setting to further enhance the experience. Off road mode can be set at speeds below 20 km/h to maximise the car's performance on poor roads and facilitate driving in difficult situations. Individual mode allows you to create your own personal drive mode and save it in your remote key memory. In Eco mode, the accelerator has a softer, less responsive function and the gearbox changes up at lower engine speeds. An Eco-Coast function helps the driver utilise the car's kinetic energy, and when the accelerator is released at speeds above 65 km/h there is no engine braking and the car rolls freely while saving fuel. This mode also turns off the air conditioning and reduces other auxiliary loads to minimise fuel consumption. In the Individual mode, you can tailor your own personal drive mode and store your settings in the remote control memory. Every time you open your car with that remote, the stored driving mode is activated. Using the ergonomic roller control in the centre console between the front seats, you conveniently switch between the different modes.
    • Start/Stop technology
      • Imagine how much energy could be saved if every car, at every traffic light in the world, switched off its engine… Our Start/Stop technology does just that. Once your engine has warmed up, and you bring your car to a halt, the engine automatically shuts off. And the instant you press the accelerator, the engine restarts and you’re on the go. It reduces fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions by up to 8%. An extra battery ensures that all infotainment and comfort systems function as usual while the engine is off. The Start/Stop system can be deactivated in the centre display and is active between -5° and +30°C.
    • Advanced petrol and diesel engine emission control
      • Going into action quickly after a cold start, Volvo’s advanced emission control eliminates between 95 and 99 per cent of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides from petrol engine exhaust gases. The Volvo Drive-E turbodiesels feature a new type of catalytic converter that, apart from reduction of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons, also absorbs nitrogen oxides and converts them into nitrogen (the main component of clean air). The particulate filter removes about 95 per cent of the particles from the diesel exhaust gases.
