Add something extra

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

    • Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) with Sport Mode
      • DSTC (Dynamic Stability and Traction Control) enhances driving stability in slippery conditions by comparing the rotation of the drive wheels and delivering the power supply as needed. The Advanced Stability Control (ASC) detects slowly built up skids at an early stage and compensates this with greater precision.
    • Electric 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.
    • Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror
      • 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.
    • LED Daytime Running Lights
      • Automatically activated during daylight, these energy efficient LED lights make your car more conspicuous. When the low beam headlights are needed for illumination, they are automatically engaged by a twilight sensor.
    • Active High Beam (AHB)
      • Active High Beam (AHB), included in the Technology Package uses a camera at the upper edge of the windshield to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles or the taillights of a vehicle directly ahead. When this happens, the headlights will automatically switch from high beams to low beams. When the camera no longer detects the headlights/ taillights of other vehicles, your headlights will switch back to high beams after several seconds.
    • City Safety
      • City Safety™ is a support system designed to help the driver avoid low speed collisions when driving in slow-moving, stop-and-go traffic. City Safety™ is active between 2 and 30 mph. Applies the brakes automatically, thereby avoiding or helping to reduce the effects of a collision. The system will not intervene in situations where the driver actively steers the vehicle or Applies the brakes.
    • Intelligent Driver Information System (IDIS)
      • To help avoid distractions during driving situations, the Intelligent Driver Information System (IDIS) constantly analyses your driving and will delay secondary information from the car or one of its on-board systems when it detects intense steering, braking or acceleration. As soon as things calm down, the delayed information is presented.
    • Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA), Optimized Hydraulic Brakes (OHB), Ready Alert Brakes (RAB) and Fading Brake Support (FBS)
      • When you’ve been caught by surprise by another car pulling out of a junction unexpectedly, that’s when large anti-lock ventilated disc brakes really come into their own – shorter stopping distances at times like this make all the difference. And if you find yourself travelling down a mountain road with the need to brake often and hard, you’ll welcome our brakes’ resistance to fading. But since there is always a risk of fade, your Volvo is also prepared for this, with Fading Brake Support. This system gradually builds hydraulic brake pressure so that you always have reassuring pedal feel. But what if you find yourself having to brake in an emergency, and perhaps not applying the necessary pressure to the pedal? Well, we’ve developed Hydraulic Brake Assist, which ensures maximum braking pressure is applied hydraulically during a panic stop. Likewise, if you suddenly lift off the accelerator or sensors detect an obstacle in front of the car, Ready Alert Brakes instantly move the brake pads closer to the brake discs to reduce the braking distance. And Electronic Brake Distribution ensures that the right amount of braking goes to the front and rear of your Volvo depending on where the load in the car is distributed and what the road conditions are. The braking system of your Volvo also contributes to your convenience when you're at a standstill in different conditions. An automatic hold function ensures the brakes will be kept engaged after you have braked the car to a standstill and releases the brake pedal. If the car is stopped for a longer period, the power parking brake takes over. To make it easier and safer for driving uphill or downhill from standstill, the Hill Start Assist function keeps the brakes applied a short period after you have released the brake pedal until you press the accelerator – there's no risk the car will move while your foot moves from the brake pedal to the accelerator.
    • Auto Dimming Interior and Exterior Mirrors
      • 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. Other functions include an optional built-in compass in the inner rear view mirror and ground lighting as well as indicators embedded in the sides of the outer mirrors.
    • Active Dual Xenon Headlights with Headlights Washers
      • You know when you’re driving down a winding country road at night and the headlights don’t quite show you everything coming up around the next bend? We wondered, what if your headlights could swivel like eyes, so your car could help you see around corners? So we developed Active Bending Lights – with motorised lamps that can turn up to 15 degrees in either direction – that follow the way you steer. And by using extra bright Dual Xenon lights (low beam and high beam), you get a 90 per cent boost to your vision round bends at night. This means you can gain a further 45 metres for braking. You can also experience highly effective low-beam illumination on narrow, winding roads and extremely powerful high beams on the motorway – a sensor disengages the adaptive function during daylight to reduce wear. It’s a very clever system, too – depending on the load in the car, the headlights self-adjust to maintain the correct angle to the road, even during hard acceleration or braking.

    Protective safety

    • Side Impact Protection System (SIPS)
      • 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.
    • Seat Belts: Five, 3-Point Inertia-Reel Belts; Five Have Pre-Tensioners and Front Have Height Adjustment
      • All seats have three-point safety belts with pre-tensioners. In the event of a collision, the safety belt is tensioned across the body to help provide maximum protection. The front seat safety belts then slacken slightly to ensure the occupants are restrained by the airbags in a more controlled manner. Sound signals and warning symbols in the instrument panel and above the inner rear-view mirror provide a reminder to fasten your safety belt before driving away.
    • Side Impact Airbags (SIPSBAGS II™)
      • 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 Side Curtain (IC)
      • In a frontal offset or side-on collision, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) helps protect the heads of both front and rear passengers who are sitting on the sides. It also stays inflated for several seconds to provide prolonged protection in the event of secondary impacts. For the optional integrated booster seat* in the rear, IC has been extended downward to improve head protection for smaller or younger children.
    • 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.
    • Whiplash Protection Seating System (WHIPS)
      • Integrated in the front seats, Volvo's unique Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) cradles the spine and neck in a controlled manner. The system is activated by a collision of sufficient force from behind. Since its introduction in 1998, it has helped reduce long-term consequences by more than 50%.
    • Five Padded Headrests
      • 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.


    • HomeLink® Integrated Garage Door Opener
      • Homelink® Remote Garage Door Opener is an advanced system that can be programmed to learn the codes of three different remote-controlled devices (e.g., garage door openers, remote lighting, entry door lock). The Homelink® sun-visor-mounted transceiver may then be used in place of your handheld remote controls.
    • Power Retractable Exterior Mirrors
      • To protect your door mirrors from damage, 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. And to facilitate parking, the door mirror on the passenger side can tilt automatically (or by the push of a button) to show you the curb when reversing.
    • Central Power Door Locks with Remote Keyless Entry, Trunk and Fuel Filler Locks
      • A touch of a button on the remote control or the optional Personal Car Communicator unlocks the doors and bootlid. 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 sunroof if you have one) and unlock the boot separately.
    • Immobilizer, Encrypted Ignition Key
      • Not only will the door locks withstand most break-in attempts, the electronic immobilizer makes it impossible to start the car without the right key. And even if a would-be thief manages to get into the car, via the window, for example, the deadlock system makes it impossible to open the door from the inside.
    • Keyless Drive
      • 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 pressing the start button on the tunnel console while depressing the brake pedal.
    • Safe Approach and Home Safe Lighting
      • Press the remote control button when approaching the car and the parking lights, interior lights and ground lighting will illuminate to make the vehicle more visible. When you leaving the car, a simple press of the headlight stalk will illuminate the low beam headlights creating a clear path of light for 30, 60 or 90 seconds.
  • Seats

    • Front Centre Armrest
      • Further adding to your comfort and convenience, the front centre armrest is fore-aft adjustable and incorporates several facilities. Two cup holders and a 12 V power outlet are concealed by a roll-top cover. There's a handy storage space beneath the armrest, and special recesses for small items. The armrest also features an AUX input or – depending on your choice of audio system – a USB port to connect your auxiliary devices to the car's audio system.
    • Heated Rear Seats
      • The optional electrical heating is available for the two outer seating positions, with individual controls.
    • Power Adjustable Driver Seat, 8-Way with 3-Position Memory and Lumbar Support
      • Our leather seats not only look fantastic, they are designed to inspire dynamic driving and give you great side support all the way from your thighs to your shoulders. In typical Volvo fashion, you will arrive feeling fresh, even after long stints behind the wheel. Providing many seating possibilities, the 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
      • Essential for those early morning winter starts, you can set the heating to two positions using buttons on the centre console.
    • R-Design Front and Rear Sport Seats
      • Inspired by racing seats, the R-Design seats feature seating surfaces in high-friction durable nubuck textile. Together with the seat's side support, this keeps you firmly in place even during the high lateral g-forces that often comes with inspired driving. Alternatively, the seating surfaces are in genuine nappa leather that have a genuine natural feel that is soft to the touch and adds a luxurious touch to the interior. Contrasting stitching enhances the sculpted seat design. And for the uncompromised sporty touch, sections of the seats are upholstered in perforated leather that also are echoed in the handbrake lever, gearshift gaiter and front centre armrest.


    • Heated Windshield Washer Nozzles
      • These nozzles prevent washer fluid from freezing on those cold winter days. Using a microprocessor-based device that runs off the vehicle’s electrical system, the nozzles heat automatically in cold weather, heating the washer fluid as it passes through the chamber on its way to the windshield. The nozzles begin heating the fluid when the temperature reaches 0˚C.
    • Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)
      • Volvo's Interior Air Quality System (IAQS) continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level o-zone and nitrogen dioxide. Meanwhile, an active carbon filter protects the occupants from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. This helps to ensure that the air you breathe in the car is cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic and tunnels.
    • Electronic Climate Control
      • Electronic Climate Control (ECC) maintains the cabin temperature you choose and can be set independently for the driver and front passenger. Further contributing to your health and comfort, the system’s humidity sensor helps ensure cabin air has an appropriate level of humidity in relation to the outside climate.
    • Power Glass Sunroof
      • The power glass moonroof adds a further dimension of airiness and light to the interior. The moonroof can be opened or closed at the touch of a button in the roof console and if the sun is in your eyes, just pull out the integrated sunblind.
    • Heated Windshield
      • Activated when you engage reverse gear, rear park assist helps you when reversing into tight spaces. The audio system is turned down and a pulsating sound from the rear loudspeakers becomes a continuous tone as you approach an obstacle. Front park assist performs a similar function at the front of the vehicle – alerting you via the front loudspeakers. The remaining distance is also shown in the center console color display.
    • Heated Steering Wheel
      • Need a little help thawing out those cold winter mornings? Just push a button and warm your hands on our heated leather steering wheel.


  • Driver's support

    • Driver Alert Control (DAC)
      • The Driver Alert Control (DAC) alerts the driver when their concentration level is affected. Together with the Lane Departure Warning or Lane Keeping Aid (dependent on model), the system monitors the vehicle’s movements and assesses whether it’s being driven in a controlled or uncontrolled manner. If DAC determines that the driving behaviour resembles that of a tired or inattentive driver, the system displays a warning sound and the message, “Time for a break” appears in the display.
    • Power Folding Rear Headrests
      • The outer head restraints can fold forward at the press of a button from the driver’s seat (optional) so they don’t block your field of vision when the rear seats are unoccupied. In the folded position, they are designed to obstruct passengers from sitting down without raising the restraints to their upright position. The rear middle head restraint can be fully retracted into the backrest to further improve rear vision. It’s designed to obstruct taller passengers from sitting down without raising the restraint to its upright position.
    • Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake (CWAB) and Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection
      • Statistics show that in half of all rear-end collisions the driver at fault doesn’t brake at all. Active at speeds above 4 km/h, our collision avoidance technology can give you audible and visible warnings if you’re too close to a vehicle in front or if there are pedestrians or cyclists in your path. If you don’t react and a collision is imminent, full auto-braking is engaged to help you avoid or mitigate an impact. Within a range of 150 metres, a radar sensor behind the grille continuously monitors the distance to the vehicle driving in front of you and a digital camera behind the windscreen determines what objects are in front of you. During daylight it can also detect standing or moving pedestrians or cyclists. If a pedestrian or a cyclist unexpectedly swerves out in front of your car or if a vehicle suddenly brakes (or is stationary) and Collision Warning senses that a collision is likely to happen, it will prompt you to act with a flashing warning light on the windscreen along with an audible alarm. Moreover, this technology supports driver-initiated braking by pre-charging the brakes to minimise the braking distance. If you don’t react to the warning and a collision is imminent, the car immediately brakes with full braking force.
    • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
      • It can happen so easily; you’re on a long motorway trip, or momentarily distracted and you wander briefly out of your lane. This puts you in danger of collision, or of simply going off the road. It doesn’t bear thinking about, but your Volvo can help with the Lane Departure Warning system. When you’re driving over 65km/h, a camera looks at the lane markings and can tell if you wander out of your lane. If you do, you will be alerted with vibrations in the steering wheel or an audible sound. But if you use indicators to signal a lane change, Lane Departure Warning will stay silent
    • Rear Park Assist Camera
      • Activated when you engage reverse gear, the Rear Park Assist Camera helps you see the area behind the car on your center console display. The display shows an image of the area with two yellow lines that mark where the car will go; these lines change according to the position of the steering wheel.
    • Lane Keeping Aid (LKA)
      • Lane Keeping Aid (LKA) 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're not in full control, the system will gently steer the car back to help keep the car in the lane. If you 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 (DA)
      • Keep control of the distance to the vehicle in front and your Volvo will alert you 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 windshield, from head-up LEDs on the dashboard or with a symbol if your car is equipped with the full-graphic head-up display.
    • 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, accelerator or clutch. After braking or using the clutch, 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.
    • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Queue Assist
      • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) activated at speeds over 18 mph. Select desired speed and minimum time gap to vehicle in front of you so the system can adjust the speed accordingly. Queue Assist function automatically adapts your speed to the vehicle in front.
    • 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.
    • Road Sign Information (RSI)
      • With RSI you don't have to miss important road signs. A forward camera detects speed limit, "no passing", "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 center console menu.
    • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) and Cross Traffic Alert (CTA)
      • We’ve all experienced that nasty little shock as we’re changing lanes and suddenly realize that there’s another vehicle in our blind spot. BLIS uses rear-facing cameras installed in the door mirrors to keep a lookout on either side of the car. As a vehicle enters your blind spot, this function can alert you with a lamp built into the front door post – left and right. Together with the door mirrors, this helps you assess the feasibility of a lane change. BLIS is activated once the car exceeds 10 km/h and reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles. And BLIS maintains its vigil day or night.
    • Front and Rear Park Assist
      • Activated when you engage reverse gear, rear park assist helps you when reversing into tight spaces. The audio system is turned down and a pulsating sound from the rear loudspeakers becomes a continuous tone as you approach an obstacle. Front park assist performs a similar function at the front of the vehicle – alerting you via the front loudspeakers. The remaining distance is also shown in the center console colour display.
    • Park Assist Pilot (PAP)
      • Semi-automatic parallel parking utilizes the front and rear park assist sensors (BLIS Package required) and operational at speeds up to 30 km/h, the system will identify an appropriate sized parking space (on either the left side or right side of the car) and will guide the driver through step by step instructions. The car will automatically control the steering functions while the driver controls the braking and transmission.
    • Rain Sensor
      • Once activated, the rain sensor can start the windshield wipers as soon as it begins to rain or if water splashes onto the window. For your convenience, it can also automatically adapt the intermittent-wiper function. Its sensitivity can be adjusted via a ring on the wiper stalk.
    • Power Heated Outside Mirrors
      • Easily adjusted from the driver's seat, the power adjustable door mirrors are electrically heated and therefore kept free from frost in cold weather.
    • Compass in Rear View Mirror
      • This is a mirror that automatically adjusts itself to deflect the headlamp beams of the car behind you. When there's no light to dazzle you, it automatically readjusts to its normal setting. And to help you take a bearing, your course is continuously displayed in the rear view mirror glass.
    • Power Windows with Driver and Passenger "Auto Up/Down" with Anti-Trap Feature
      • 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-sensitive Steering
      • Speed dependant power steering uses sophisticated, speed-sensitive technology to regulate the amount of power assistance a driver needs. At highway speeds, steering is firmer and more immediate. When parking or in slow traffic, steering is light and effortless.


    • Volvo Sensus with Integrated 7-inch Colour Display

    • Electronically Controlled All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction™
      • 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.
    • Paddle Shifters
      • If you enjoy driving, our new paddle shifters will add even more fun behind the steering wheel. They offer faster and more precise manual gear changes. By allowing you to keep your hands on the steering wheel, the paddle shifters also ensure you are always 100% in control of your car.

    Chassis & Steering

    • Corner Traction Control (CTC) by Torque Vectoring
      • Corner Traction Control (CTC) through Torque Vectoring balances the torque between the front wheels during acceleration while cornering – the torque is being re-distributed from a spinning inner wheel to the outer wheel – this reduces understeer and increase traction. This also enhances stability when cornering at higher speeds.
    • Sport Chassis
      • If you want an even more driver-focused experience, you can now have your S60 fitted with our R-Design Sport Chassis, which was previously only available on the R-Design model. Lowered by 15 mm, it is perceptibly and materially different.
