FEATURES & OPTIONS

Add something extra

  • SAFETY COMFORT TECHANDSOUND PACKANDLOAD PERFORMANCE ENVIRONMENT
  • Preventive safety

    • City Safety
      • We know that you want to a avoid collisions under all circumstances, also at low speeds. And it only takes a moment’s distraction in a busy city centre to find yourself in just such a scenario. So we wondered whether it would be possible for your Volvo to lend a helping hand. Well, that’s exactly what City Safety is all about, a laser-based technology that can sense an impending collision at speeds of up to 50km/h. In the first instance, City Safety prepares the brakes so that they respond faster when you press the pedal. And if you fail to brake, City Safety will apply the brakes for you and switch off the throttle to lessen the effects of a collision. Even better, if the difference in speed between your car and the one in front is less than 15km/h, City Safety can prevent a collision from happening in the first place. City Safety is activated as soon as you start your car, and ready to assist you in such an eventuality. City Safety is just one element of our complete approach to car safety. We call it IntelliSafe, and it’s a programme targeted at fulfilling our aim to create cars that will help you avoid collisions altogether – it includes such features as Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, Park Assist and much more.
    • Driver Alert Control (DAC)
      • You know the scenario. Maybe you’ve had a long day at the office or possibly too many hours behind the wheel, and your attention begins to waver. This is a danger zone that we’ve given a lot of thought to, because distracted drivers cause up to 90 per cent of all accidents. That’s why we’ve developed Driver Alert Control (DAC) to help distracted drivers at speeds over 65km/h. A camera looks at the road ahead while DAC checks on your steering inputs to see how they compare to your regular driving style. If it senses that you’re driving more erratically, or there are signs that you’re drowsy or distracted, it’ll give you an audible warning and a message on the instrument panel suggesting you take a break.
    • 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 on your own. 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, it will give you an audible warning but if you use indicators to signal a lane change, LDW will stay silent.
    • 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, LKA will apply a gentle steering wheel torque 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. When you intentionally cross a lane marker using the direction indicators, LKA is not activated.
    • 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 realise that there’s another vehicle in our blind spot. That’s why we have developed Radar BLIS to give you total awareness. Evolved from our previous BLIS system with cameras in the rear-view mirrors, Radar BLIS has radar sensors installed inside the rear of the car, which cover a much larger area behind the car and work in various sorts of weather and light conditions, day or night. As a vehicle enters your blind spot, this function can alert you via a warning light built into the front door post – 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. Radar BLIS is activated once the car exceeds 10 km/h and reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles. Cross Traffic Alert uses the rear radar sensors to alert you of crossing traffic from the sides when reversing out of a parking space. This is especially helpful in tight and crowded areas where the side view might be limited.
    • Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) with Advanced Stability Control (ASC), Corner Traction Control (CTC), Engine Drag Control (EDC) and Sport Mode
      • 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 Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) 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, DSTC 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, using Engine Drag Control (EDC). To help the DSTC system work even sooner and with more precision to prevent a skid, the Advanced Stability Control (ASC) system has a new multi-axis sensor. But ASC is 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 and more fun behind the wheel is Corner Traction Control (CTC). 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. And if you’re in the mood for a bit of performance driving, DTSC 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 DSTC-function.

    • Intelligent Driver Information System (IDIS)
      • To help avoid distractions during critical driving situations, 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 phone call or the delayed information is presented. IDIS can be set up to let phone calls through in all driving situations.
    • LED dayrunning lights
      • Automatically activated during daylight, these energy efficient LED lights make your car more conspicuous. And when the dipped headlights are needed for illumination, they are automatically engaged by a twilight sensor. What’s more, the spoiler integrated LED lights also add to the distinct styling of your Volvo.
    • 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.

    Protective safety

    • Energy-absorbing frontal structure
      • The unique geometry of the frontal structure and longitudinal steel struts in the doors help disperse crash energy away from the front to the rear of the car, reducing impact effects on driver and passengers. The fact that all Volvos have transversely mounted, compact in-line engines, results in maximum space for deformation and energy dispersion.
    • Side Impact Protection System (SIPS)
      • Volvo’s patented frontal structure is built with several types of steel to allow optimal deformation – outer layers are more yielding, while steel closer to the cabin is more resilient. This structure helps absorb the impact of a collision before it reaches the occupants. The compact powertrain is designed to help optimise deformation. The unique geometry of the frontal structure and longitudinal steel struts in the doors help disperse crash energy away from the front to the rear of the car, further helping to reduce the strain on the occupants. A steel strut under the dashboard helps prevent components in the engine bay from intruding into the cabin. This also helps protect legs and feet.
    • Safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters
      • The most important safety feature, all outboard seats have safety belts with pre-tensioners that activate within a few thousands of a second in the event of a collision and tighten the belt for maximum protection. The front seat safety belts then release a little so that the driver and passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a controlled manner.
    • Passenger airbag cut-off switch
      • The passenger airbag is designed to help protect an adult in a frontal collision in case of collision. But if a child or a person shorter than 140 centimetres is in the front passenger seat, the airbag must first be disengaged to avoid the risk of serious injury. The airbag cut-off switch is positioned on the passenger end of the dashboard and can only be accessed with the door open. When the airbag is switched off (just use the key), you’re notified by a message on the roof console display.
    • Side airbags
      • To help protect the chest and hip during a side-on collision, the side airbags inflate during a side-on impact. They are located in the ideal spot on the front seatback.
    • Inflatable 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Head restraints
      • Positioned to offer optimum protection irrespective of the occupant's height, the restraints offer both driver and passengers outstanding protection.
    • 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.

    Security

    • 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. Lock buttons are also available for the rear seat passengers.
    • Private Locking
      • Private Locking is a function that allows you to keep the luggage and glove compartment locked even when you lend out your remote control to, for example, a valet parking attendant. To activate Private Locking, a miniature key incorporated within the remote control is used to lock the glove compartment. This stops both compartments from being unlocked with the remote control, but allows the central locking system and ignition to be used as normal.
    • Global locking and closing
      • This function allows you to close all windows and lock the car all at once by pressing the button on the remote control or the Personal Car Communicator for two seconds. Alternatively, press the button for two seconds to unlock the car and open all the windows.
    • 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 key. And even if a would-be thief manages to get into the car via the window, the deadlock system makes it impossible to open the door from the inside.
    • Personal Car Communicator (PCC)
      • PCC is an advanced remote control that combines ‘keyless drive’ with two-way communication with your Volvo. Keep the PCC with you and the car unlocks automatically as you pull the door handle. Start the engine by pressing a button on the dash, and when you park, lock your car by pressing a button in the door handle. Later in the day, if you’re wondering whether you’ve locked your car, the PCC can tell you by displaying the status that the car was last left in, wherever you are in the world. When you are approaching your car (within a distance of approximately 100m), the PCC can give you a warning if the car’s alarm has been activated, and an extra visible warning if it’s been activated within the last five minutes.
    • Power retractable door mirrors with ground lighting
      • 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. The integrated ground lighting is activated by the approach light button on your remote control, enhancing security as you go to and from your car at night. And to facilitate parking, the door mirrors can tilt automatically (or by the push of a button) when reversing.
  • Seats

    • Five individual seats
      • All occupants will appreciate the comfort of a separate 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. You can even remove the tunnel section's rear section to add extra legroom in the rear middle seat. Each rear seat is easy to fold into the load area floor so you can transport both passengers and cargo without compromising on either comfort or safety. By specifying the five-seater version, you'll also gain added storage capacity under the load floor.
    • Power front seats, driver and passenger
      • Find your perfect seat position with push-button ease. Adjust the driver's seat to a position perfect for you and save the settings. Every time you use your central locking remote, the seat will automatically adjust to your preferences. Up to 3 different seat settings can be saved into the memory system that is linked to the central locking remote controls. Each remote triggers the corresponding setting from the last time that particular remote control was used. Power front seats also facilitate entrance in the rear seat – simply lifting a handle will move each front seat forward.

    Climate

    • 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.
    • Electronic Climate Control (ECC)
      • 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.
    • Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)
      • Volvo’s IAQS continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide. When the air vents are opened, an active carbon filter protects the passengers from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. 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 Volvo, CZIP initiates a ventilation cycle, which is triggered when you unlock the car with your remote control or your Personal Car Communicator. This feature is active on days when it is at least 10°C outside. CZIP also does a great job of venting out allergy and asthma inducing substances.

    Storage

    • Front door panel storage pockets
      • For your convenience there's door panel storage on the driver's and front seat passenger's side. There's even a pocket with drainage, specially-designed for your ice scraper.
    • Front cupholders
      • The two cupholders for the driver and front seat passenger are hidden under an elegant roll-top cover and conveniently positioned in the tunnel console. To provide extra storage, the cupholders can be removed.
  • Driver's support

    • Adaptive Digital Display
      • With the high resolution digital instrument cluster you easily adapt the instrument layout and interface to your driving desires. You have three displays to switch between – Elegance, Eco and Performance. 

 Elegance
 This is your sophisticated and stylish display theme in amber, with the speedometer in the centre dial and highlighted needle for easy reading. With manual transmission a gearshift indicator helps you drive in the most energy-efficient way.

 Eco
 The instrument layout features a green colour theme and is similar to Elegance mode, but you also get an Eco meter. Guiding you by showing real time fuel consumption and average consumption from the last minutes, the Eco meter supports you to drive in the most fuel-efficient way. And when driving really economical, you’ll receive a symbolic reward in the display.

 Performance 
In the red Performance mode you can enjoy an uncompromised sporty look. The centre dial rev counter and a digital speedometer enhance your feeling of being in command. Not to mention the power meter that displays how much engine power you use and have at your disposal before overtaking.
    • Personal settings
      • Define your Volvo's convenience and security settings according to your personal preferences using this simple computer interface. Depending on which technologies you have, this is where you configure the audio and climate settings, navigation, communication, central locking, Approach and Home Safe lighting and the Intelligent Driver-Information System.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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 realise that there’s another vehicle in our blind spot. That’s why we have developed Radar BLIS to give you total awareness. Evolved from our previous BLIS system with cameras in the rear-view mirrors, Radar BLIS has radar sensors installed inside the rear of the car, which cover a much larger area behind the car and work in various sorts of weather and light conditions, day or night. As a vehicle enters your blind spot, this function can alert you via a warning light built into the front door post – 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. Radar BLIS is activated once the car exceeds 10 km/h and reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles. Cross Traffic Alert uses the rear radar sensors to alert you of crossing traffic from the sides when reversing out of a parking space. This is especially helpful in tight and crowded areas where the side view might be limited.
    • Park assist sensors, rear and front
      • Activated when you engage reverse gear, rear park assist sensors help 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 sensors perform a similar function at the front of the vehicle – alerting you via the front loudspeakers. The remaining distance is also shown in the centre console colour display.
    • 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.
    • Automatically dimmed inner 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.
    • Illuminated vanity mirror
      • Fitted in the sun visor, lights come on when you open the vanity mirror cover – convenient and practical. Available for both the driver and front passenger.
    • Power retractable door mirrors with ground lighting
      • 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. The integrated ground lighting is activated by the approach light button on your remote control, enhancing security as you go to and from your car at night. And to facilitate parking, the door mirrors can tilt automatically (or by the push of a button) when reversing.
    • 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.
    • Interior lighting
      • An entry light on both the driver and front passenger side lights the foot-well area as you get into the car. 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.
    • Interior lighting
      • An entry light on both the driver and front passenger side lights the foot-well area upon entry into the car. Front reading lamps are nicely integrated in the roof console. Lighting in the rear seat also illuminates the luggage compartment. The interior light will fade out 25 seconds after the doors have been closed, but will switch off immediately if the ignition is turned on or the doors are locked.
    • Headlamp level adjuster
      • The headlamp level adjuster allows the driver to lower or raise the angle of the headlight beam by turning a dial on the instrument panel. This is particularly useful when driving at night with a full load. Only applies to halogen headlamps; Dual Xenon Active Bending Lights adjust automatically.

    Communication

    • Bluetooth® handsfree system, integrated
      • Want to access your mobile phone while you’re on the road to find an address, lay out a route in the navigation system and call ahead that you’re on your way? The on-board Bluetooth® technology lets you do all this wirelessly through the infotainment system – and play some music along the way. Once configured for a mobile phone, the system automatically recognises your phone as you enter the car. And as you get in and out of the car, the system automatically allows you to switch freely from the phone to the handsfree system and back again. The audio systems High Performance, High Performance Multi Media and Premium Sound Multi Media include an integrated Bluetooth® handsfree system, allowing you to operate your phone conveniently using the buttons on the steering wheel or the centre console keypad. Phone information is shown on the centre console multimedia display. And if you’ve chosen the RTI navigation system, you can make your calls using voice control. What’s more, you can stream high quality audio from a media player and listen to it through the car’s audio system. The Bluetooth® word mark and logos are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Volvo Car Corporation is under licence. Other trademarks and trade names are those of their respective owners.
  • Load compartment

    • Net pocket, cargo compartment
      • Practical storage for small items along the left side panel in the load compartment. Not in combination with the two-level load compartment floor.
    • Load organiser, cargo compartment
      • This easily installed telescopic frame with floor rails and load holder makes it simple to secure and organise bags, gear and loose items. You can separate fragile objects from other cargo, and divide the cargo area in two if required. And if the organiser isn’t needed, it’s easy to remove and store.
  • Transmission

    • Start/Stop technology
      • To further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 8% when driving in the city, all engines feature Volvo’s Start/Stop technology. Once the engine is warmed up and the car comes to a standstill (for example at a traffic light) where you put the gear in neutral and release the clutch, the engine automatically shuts off. And instantly as you press the clutch pedal, the engine restarts and you’re on the go. An extra battery ensures that all infotainment and comfort systems will function as usual even with the engine shut off. The Start/Stop system can be deactivated with a push of a button in the centre console and is active between 0° and 30° C.
    • All-wheel Drive
      • 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.
    • 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
      • In collaboration with skilled racing drivers, Volvo's chassis engineers spent thousands of hours on all kinds of roads to create a chassis that satisfies even the most demanding driver. Every single detail of the chassis is optimally tuned for dynamic and well-balanced handling with a high level of comfort. For you as driver, advanced multi-link rear and McPherson spring strut front suspension mounted on a rigid body with a low centre of gravity translate into a feeling of being in command and in safe control. Front wheel knuckles are made in aluminium to minimise the unsprung weight and maximise your driving experience. The front and rear suspensions also interact to provide stable braking and crisp steering. In a curve, the rear wheels have a slight steering facility for added stability and steering response. The elevated ride height adds to more powerful looks and excellent vision for you as driver.
    • Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) with Advanced Stability Control (ASC), Corner Traction Control (CTC), Engine Drag Control (EDC) and Sport Mode
      • 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 Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) 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, DSTC 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, using Engine Drag Control (EDC). To help the DSTC system work even sooner and with more precision to prevent a skid, the Advanced Stability Control (ASC) system has a new multi-axis sensor. But ASC is 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 and more fun behind the wheel is Corner Traction Control (CTC). 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. And if you’re in the mood for a bit of performance driving, DTSC 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 DSTC-function.
    • Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC)
      • 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 Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) one of our 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, DSTC can detect a potential skid and take action to prevent it by reducing engine power and/or braking the appropriate wheels.
  • Inside

    • 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.
    • Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)
      • Volvo’s IAQS continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide. When the air vents are opened, an active carbon filter protects the passengers from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. 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 Volvo, CZIP initiates a ventilation cycle, which is triggered when you unlock the car with your remote control or your Personal Car Communicator. This feature is active on days when it is at least 10°C outside. CZIP also does a great job of venting out allergy and asthma inducing substances.

    Outside

    • LED dayrunning lights
      • Automatically activated during daylight, these energy efficient LED lights make your car more conspicuous. And when the dipped headlights are needed for illumination, they are automatically engaged by a twilight sensor. What’s more, the spoiler integrated LED lights also add to the distinct styling of your Volvo.
    • Start/Stop technology
      • To further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 8% when driving in the city, all engines feature Volvo’s Start/Stop technology. Once the engine is warmed up and the car comes to a standstill (for example at a traffic light) where you put the gear in neutral and release the clutch, the engine automatically shuts off. And instantly as you press the clutch pedal, the engine restarts and you’re on the go. An extra battery ensures that all infotainment and comfort systems will function as usual even with the engine shut off. The Start/Stop system can be deactivated with a push of a button in the centre console and is active between 0° and 30° C.
