Compared to conventional halogen headlamps, Active Bending Lights use Dual Xenon technology to expand your vision range by about 230%. This means you'll be helped to gain 45 metres more for braking. And using motorised lamps that turn up to 15° in either direction, this technology gives a 90% boost to your vision round bends at night. You can enjoy highly effective low beam illumination on narrow, winding roads and extremely powerful full beams on the motorway. The adaptive function automatically disengages during daylight. Independent of the load, these headlights self-adjust to maintain the correct angle to the road – even during hard acceleration or braking.
The Volvo navigation system is your perfect travel companion. It is a high performance DVD system using a combination of voice guidance and map displays to help you find the shortest and fastest way to your destination, saving you both time and fuel costs along the way. It will tell you where the nearest petrol station is or give directions to a restaurant and it also suggests an alternate route when your normal route is overly congested (requires traffic information, TMC).
The 6.5" retractable screen is located in a high position on the dashboard ensuring safe viewing. You don't have to remove the navigation system from your vehicle when you park, it is fully integrated into the car, hence offering theft protection and the benefit of having no visible cables in your Volvo. The system has passed severe Volvo crash tests and is located in a position that minimizes the risk of harming occupants in case of an accident.
A simple, effective way of reducing the risk of aluminium wheels from being stolen. Each wheel lock features one uniquely coded socket enabling only you to remove your wheels.
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, lock the car by pressing a button in the door handle. Later in the day, if you’re wondering whether you’ve locked the car, PCC can tell; no matter where you are. On your return to the car – within a radius of 60 to 100 metres – pressing the PCC information button will give you a current report on its lock and alarm status.
As long as you have your key in your pocket or handbag, keyless drive lets you unlock your car just by grasping the door handle. To start the engine, just twist the starter control in the instrument panel. To lock all the doors, simply press the button in the door handle. Convenient? Definitely - but also safer, too.

Take away the fuss of parallel parking and let your car park itself. At the press of a button, Park Assist Pilot scans the parking slot using ultrasonic sensor technology. PAP alerts you if the slot is spacious enough (minimum 1.2 x the length of the car). Then just line up your car in front of the parking lot, engage reverse gear and follow the instructions in the driver information display. You control the speed and direction of your car, while PAP takes over the steering until you're perfectly parked.
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.
Speed dependent 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.
To help you create your own interior ambience, we created an LED interior illumination that instantly adjusts to your wishes – with seven individual settings for both light colour and spot lighting.
