Adjust the driver's seat and door mirrors to a position perfect for you and save the settings. Every time you use your central locking remote, the seats and mirrors will automatically adjust to your preferences. Up to 3 different seat and door mirror 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. Passenger seat settings can also be set and reset automatically.
The tailgate can be opened automatically three ways: with the remote control, using the switch on the dashboard, or by pulling the handle. To help minimise risk of injury, only a switch in the tailgate can be used to trigger automatic closing. Also, an anti-jam strip around the tailgate opening can detect obstructions to help avoid pinching fingers and things.
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" screen is located in a high position in the centre stack 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. To help you keep track of new roads and points of interest, you can join our MapCare programme for two free map updates.

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. And as you enter a tunnel in daylight, the sensor will activate your car's headlamps and turn them off when exiting the tunnel.
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 centre console colour display.
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.
