Introduction (This film shows MY09)

17841:24058|Hi. I'm Emma. And I'm going to introduce you to your new Volvo XC60. 25887:28499|It's a wonderful car to zip around town in 28865:32313|and it makes me happy when I feel like exploring the countryside.

Key and automatic locking (option)

1097:3657|Let's start with the Personal Car Communicator. 4493:8489|It is probably the world's most sophisticated two-way remote control. 9247:11284|It has some really clever functions. 12852:17105|When you are in range and press the I-button the car communicates with you. 18024:23248|The green light means the car is locked. The yellow light says it's unlocked. 24764:27924|This red light indicates the alarm has been triggered. 28525:32182|And if the red lights are flashing, there may be someone in the car! 33436:35134|Lets go inside the car.

Steering wheel

2011:5825|The first thing you want to do is to adjust the steering wheel. 6347:13766|Just pull this lever and adjust the wheel up or down, in or out.

Power seat with memory (option)

548:6112|The optional power seat has three memory settings. Adjustment is really simple. 6452:10945|Just press this button to move the seat forward or backward. 11415:16822|Raise or lower the seat with this, and move the backrest with this. 17684:20741|Move the front of the seat cushion with this. 21159:25939|Store your setting by holding down the memory button and pressing 1. 26644:30928|The lumbar support is adjusted here. That's it. 31164:35683|Now, this setting is activated every time this remote is used. 35683:39366|This means you can have individual settings for different keys. 39575:43102|It's really convenient if you share the car with someone else. 43885:47229|Now we are ready to go for a drive.

ECC Climate control (option)

1018:5250|The climate can be controlled automatically by pressing the Auto button. 6034:11833|You can set the temperature individually for the driver side or the passenger side. 12120:16248|Just turn the knob on the side where you want to set the temperature. 16613:21028|To override the blower Auto setting, turn the blower knob. 21681:25991|Change the air distribution by pressing one of the buttons in the symbol. 26435:34427|The air quality system can have three settings. Toggle between them by pressing the air quality button. 35422:47387|The left-hand orange lamp indicates that the air quality sensor is disengaged. When the green lamp illuminates that recirculation is not engaged. 48013:53028|The right-hand orange lamp indicates that recirculation is engaged. 53838:59559|Always leave the air quality sensor on to obtain the best air quality inside the car.

City Safety (option)

1828:5302|Next is a world-first safety feature. 6896:12460|The forward-viewing City Safety is a world-first standard function in the new Volvo XC60. 13374:17502|It operates at speeds of up to 30 km per hour. 19356:27062|Thanks to the infrared laser sensor, the City Safety technology can determine whether you are approaching the vehicle ahead too quickly. 28447:35185|If the driver fails to react in time, City Safety will automatically apply the brakes in order to slow down the car... 35735:37590|... either to avoid the collision, 37799:43363|which is possible if the speed difference between the two vehicles is below 15 km/h... 43911:45766|... or reduce the impact... 46053:51487|if the speed difference between the two vehicles is between 16 and 30 km/h. 52114:57652|To learn more about City Safety consult the Volvo XC60 owners manual.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Distance Alert, ACC (option)

1854:9195|The Adaptive Cruise Control lets you select the desired speed ...and the minimum time gap to the vehicle ahead. 9387:17554|If the radar sensor detects a vehicle with a lower speed in front of you, your speed automatically adapts to that vehicle. 17737:27115|Volvo's Adaptive Cruise Control maintains your desired time gap irrespective of speed changes to offer you more relaxed driving. 29178:37485|Alternatively, when switching on Distance Alert, you select one of five time intervals to the vehicle ahead... 38008:42147|... and the radar sensor continuously monitors the distance. 42893:50285|If the distance to the vehicle immediately ahead is reduced, a warning light is activated in the windscreen.

Collision Warning with Auto Brake (option)

574:5093|The Collision Warning system with Auto Brake has a radar sensor behind the grille 5107:8672|that continuously monitors the distance to the vehicle ahead. 9038:15882|And thanks to a camera inside the windscreen, the system is able to detect stationary vehicles as well. 16300:19983|If the distance to the other vehicle is rapidly decreasing, 20027:25756|the system will alert the driver to act with a flashing light and an audible warning. 26467:33280|Moreover, the system supports driver-initiated braking by obtaining swift brake response... 33671:37485|by pre-charging the brakes and preparing for emergency braking. 38321:44721|If the driver fails to react to the warning signals and the system detects that a collision is imminent... 45139:48535|... Auto Brake is activated to automatically brake the car ... 50128:53394|... thus helping to reduce the effects of the collision. 54700:59977|This may be the decisive difference between severe and minor injuries.

Audio (option)

1044:6948|There is a great audio system in the XC60. I'll show you some of its main features. 7209:13531|You have a Dolby Prologic II decoder for true surround sound from a CD and MP3. 14236:22177|You can also plug in your mp3 player in the auxiliary input or the USB input and listen through the speakers. 22648:34063|The USB port supports iPod and USB memory sticks with music files in mp3, WMA and WAV formats. 34298:38635|Press the MODE button to activate the iPod or USB source. 39392:45975|Connect your device and use the Tuning button or the navigation control to scroll to the desired track. 46811:53133|The first time you listen to music from an AUX device you might need to adjust the input volume. 53551:61779|Just press the Menu button and navigate to AUX volume. Then you adjust the volume by turning the tuning knob. 63451:69903|Pressing the Menu button and using the navigation arrows can reach lots of other settings. 70008:75650|Passengers in the back seat can listen to individual audio sources through their headsets. 76120:87457|Select the source by pressing the MODE button. It toggles between AM/FM, CD, AUX or USB/iPod or DAB. 87707:93544|Change tracks or stations, or go fast forward or backward with the arrow buttons. 95033:105743|Another smart feature is the Soundstage. It is used to optimize the sound for the driver's seat, both front seats or the back seat. 106605:110680|The steering wheel buttons control the radio and CD. 111673:118204|With a short press on the forward button you change preset radio station or CD tracks. 118700:124943|Press and hold to fast-forward the CD player or search for radio stations. 125387:129697|The Volume control is simple just up or down.

Active chassis, Four C (option)

2115:8306|If you are like me and really enjoy getting the most out of your driving, you should look at this feature. 12251:21237|The Active Chassis Four-C offers the driver a choice of three handling modes - Comfort, Sport & Advanced. 21681:31477|The Comfort setting effectively insulates passengers from uneven road surfaces with flexible suspension damping and gentle body movements. 31817:35604|This setting is also ideal for slippery roads. 36858:44904|The Sport setting, on the other hand, prioritizes stiffer damping, decisive body movement and quicker response. 45505:49502|It's a good balance of precise handling and a comfortable ride, 49528:53968|whereas the Advanced setting is a pure performance mode. 54256:62145|It stiffens the shock absorbers for maximum road contact, relaying all the road surface information to the driver, 62380:66037|and prioritizing road holding over comfort.

Panorama sunroof (option)

2847:5720|I want to show you the beautiful panorama sunroof. 8097:12173|The panorama sunroof can be opened in two different ways: 12747:19278|by sliding the whole front section open, or by tilting its rear edge into ventilation position. 20767:29544|To open the roof automatically, press the control rearward as far as possible and release it. This opens the curtain. 30354:36702|Move the control rearward in the same way. Now the panorama sunroof opens fully. 37642:42187|Close the roof in the opposite way by moving the control forward. 43075:49162|Moving the control backward or forward twice will do rapid opening and closing. 50546:57547|For manual operation, just move the control to the first stop and hold it for as long as needed. 58070:63190|Set the ventilation position by pressing upward on the rear edge of the control. 63712:66533|Close by pulling down on the rear edge.

Rain sensor (option)

2194:7392|It's a good idea to always activate the rain sensor when there is a risk of rain. 7758:10631|This way you don't have to bother with the wipers. 11415:17920|There is even a symbol in the main instrument panel that makes it easy to see if it's on or off. 19043:23954|Turn the thumb wheel upward to increase the rain sensor sensitivity. 24737:30040|You might want to make an extra wipe now and then. Just flip the stalk upward. 30249:36310|But if you flip it downward you override the rain sensor and you will have to reactivate it.

Fuel quantity trip computer

1776:7366|In the centre of the display you have information about fuel quantity and outside temperature. 7758:13844|This display is also used when setting the adaptive cruise control and using the trip computer. 14706:19879|You access the trip computer by turning the thumb wheel on the left stalk. 21551:27533|There is one function that you might want to know more about: distance to empty tank. 27951:33123|The distance is calculated from the average fuel consumption during the last 30 kilometres. 33384:39523|This means that if you start driving more actively it might not be totally accurate.

Trip meter

2037:6269|The two trip meters are displayed in the main instrument panel. 6870:10527|This button is used to set the two trip meters. 11128:18546|A short press toggles between the two. A long press resets the current trip meter.

Driver Alert Control (option)

1671:7471|If you ever feel tired while driving, you might be interested in the next feature. 10031:16509|Driver Alert Control is developed to alert the driver if he or she is beginning to lose concentration 16848:19748|when driving on main roads and motorways. 20793:26827|Using a camera, the system continuously monitors the car's movements between the lane markings... 27350:31738|... and assesses whether the vehicle is being driven in a controlled way. 32365:38217|Five bars in the information display indicate the driver's current level of concentration. 38504:41299|When concentration drops below a certain level... 41586:44042|... the driver is alerted with an alarm... 44591:48587|and a message suggesting that it's time to stop for a break.

Active Bi-Xenon Light, ABL (option)

2324:6504|The Active Bi-Xenon Light is a fully automatic system. 6844:15151|By synchronizing the distribution of light, Active Bi-Xenon Light will improve illumination in curves up to 90%. 15333:17266|When accelerating or braking... 17397:25286|... or driving with heavy load, the level of the beam is automatically adjusted to avoid dazzling of oncoming traffic.

Lane Departure Warning (option)

992:8933|Lane Departure Warning is developed to alert the driver if he or she is unintentionally crossing a lane marking. 9404:13113|The system is automatically activated from when the car is started... 13322:16169|... however it can be deactivated manually. 16509:19539|Two levels of sensitivity can be selected... 19670:22595|... normal or increased sensitivity. 23353:27271|A camera is used to continuously detect the lane markings. 27637:32888|If a lane marking is about to be crossed without active driver manoeuvres or indication... 33227:36937|... the driver will be alerted with a gentle warning sound.

BLIS (option)

3030:8463|BLIS uses cameras in the door mirrors to detect when a vehicle is entering the blind spot. 8960:12538|When an overtaking vehicle is about 6 meters behind... 12747:21002|...a warning light alerts you, to give you a better chance of keeping clear. And the system even works in the dark. 21551:28604|BLIS is activated when the car is started but can be switched off using the BLIS button in the centre console.

Parking camera (option)

1149:6765|The parking camera monitors the area behind the car and displays it on the screen. 7366:13871|This makes it easier to parallel park, reverse into tight spaces and connect to a trailer. 14497:18991|The camera is activated automatically when reverse gear is engaged. 19487:27663|When backing you see projected lines showing where your car is moving depending on how you turn the steering wheel. 28395:33567|The transverse red line indicates 0.3 meters from the bumper. 33776:37302|The yellow line indicates 1.5 meters.

Electric parking brake

1880:10344|Apply the electric parking brake by first stopping the car with the foot brake. Then press the control button. 10684:16352|When the symbol in the main instrument panel illuminates, the parking brake is applied. 16587:22204|To release the electric parking brake manually the remote key must be in the ignition slot. 22883:28133|Press the brake pedal and then pull out on the parking brake release. 29361:39627|The electric parking brake can also be released automatically. Just start the engine, release the clutch and press the accelerator. 40280:46968|With the automatic gearbox, the parking brake releases automatically when the safety belt is fastened 47255:52636|and you put the gear shift in D or R and press the accelerator.

Storage compartment

417:7627|Let's take a look at the convenient storage compartments. There is a pocket on the front side of each front seat. 8986:12434|The glove compartment can be locked with the key blade. 13061:21681|Then there's the CD storage in the tunnel console. You can actually fit 10 CDs in there if you use it right. 22282:26880|Small objects can be placed behind the centre console, out of the way. 27402:33802|Then there are of course the side pockets, seat pockets and cup holders.

Floor panel

914:5172|Fold up the floor panel to access the storage compartment beneath it. 6112:10266|This is a good place for the warning triangle and a first aid kit. 11102:17319|It's also a good place to keep small items when leaving the car since it is locked by the tailgate.


1201:6060|At times you may want to transport long objects. It's easily done. 6582:10684|Just fold down the rear seat backrests by pulling these handles. 11781:15333|You can fold the left and middle section separately. 19617:24555|The right backrest can only be folded together with the middle section.

Tailgate (option)

1567:5877|The optional Power Operated Tailgate can be opened in three ways. 6530:10427|Press the button in the lighting panel until it starts to open. 11311:13547|Press the button on the remote key. 14889:20453|You can also press lightly on the pressure plate beneath the handle and raise the tailgate. 21159:26514|The tailgate can be closed manually or by pressing the button on its lower edge.


966:7262|To use a child seat in the front seat, you MUST deactivate the passenger airbag. 7467:12617|To do this, open the door and turn the switch to OFF. 13217:19252|A text message in the overhead consol will indicate that the airbag is deactivated.

Paint care

862:4806|Finally I have a message from Volvo's paint experts. 4989:7915|They want to help you take good care of your new car 8097:12667|and they say that it's best to hand wash the car during the first few months. 13165:18105|Thank you for joining me. I hope you will enjoy you new Volvo.

Crossing the line
