INTELLISAFE

Innovations that redesign safety, everyday.

Our vision:
No one will be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo by 2020.

That’s how seriously we take safety. From features that support you while driving, to features that help prevent accidents and protect you in the event that one occurs, IntelliSafe is our way of giving you everyday convenience and peace of mind, anywhere you go.

SUPPORT AND PREVENT

Making everyday driving more enjoyable

We’ve simplified the driving experience, making it easier and safer for you to go wherever the road takes you. So just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Adaptive cruising

Adaptive Cruise Control keeps you at a set distance between your Volvo and the car in front. It makes driving more relaxing, especially in slow moving city traffic.

360° camera

Get a bird’s-eye view of your car, so you can see obstacles at any angle. It makes parking and manoeuvring in tight spaces a breeze.

Active high beam

Active High Beam automatically senses other vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists and temporarily switches between low and high beams at night.

Park assist pilot

Let us park for you. Simply activate Park Assist Pilot, pull up to your space, and let go of the wheel. The car steers itself and lets you know when to brake.

Blind spot information

Change lanes knowing you have total awareness of the cars around you with radar sensors that alert you.

Keeping in your lane

If your car starts to veer out of its lane, our Lane Keeping Aid kicks in, gently steering you back and sending warning vibrations to keep you alert.

CITY SAFETY

Keeping you in command in the city

City Safety lends a hand when traffic comes to a sudden halt, preparing the brakes for a quicker response or automatically braking if there is no time to respond.

Protecting pedestrians

Pedestrian detection detects people walking ahead of your vehicle to help you avoid accidents, and even brakes for you should the situation require it.

Protecting cyclists

If a cyclist swerves in front of your car, our cyclist detection will warn you with a light on your windshield and brake for you if quick action is necessary.

Forward collision warning

Forward Collision Warning scans all objects within 500 feet in front of your car and if an accident is imminent, it warns you and pre-charges the brakes for a quick stop.

PROTECT

Safety from every angle

Unexpected things happen on the road, so we’ve created features to keep you as safe as possible, should the unavoidable occur.

Pedestrian airbag

A safe car should protect those inside and out. That’s why the Pedestrian Airbag — a Volvo-first technology — automatically releases to cover the windshield and lessen the impact. (Not available in Canada)

Seat belts

We invented the three-point seatbelt in 1959, but today, ours are safer than ever. Now, our seatbelts automatically tighten within a few thousandths of a second after a collision.

Stronger construction

Made of super-strong boron steel and lighter steels, our safety cages hold strong during an accident, while allowing the energy to disperse to help keep you safe.

Our Innovations

Everything we do is designed around people, so every innovation we make is designed to simplify and improve your life. We're especially proud of our advances in efficient power, connectivity and safety. We call our thinking in these areas: Drive-E, Sensus and IntelliSafe.
