Some things get better everyday; Volvo is a leader in safety and that will never change. Volvo employs innovation to improve your overall driving experience. We offer one of the most high-tech safety systems - ‘Intellisafe’ as standard in all new Volvo Cars with the sole aim to make your journey a safer one. We offer you peace of mind.
Another superior feature is ‘City Safety’, which helps protect people both inside and outside the car by spotting potential danger, helping you avoid it. This feature uses radar and camera technology to identify obstacles around like other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals, day and night. This intelligent system warns you if it detects and imminent collision ahead and if you don’t react in time, it can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid a collision (at speed differences up to 30 km/h).
The New Volvo V60 reflects a new chapter of an active & ambitious lifestyle for a generation “on the move” while keeping you safe with class-leading safety technology and advanced on-board connectivity with hi-tech features such as Pilot Assist, 360° Parking Camera, etc.
Pilot Assist is one of the key highlight features of Volvo which helps the driver to drive the car between the lane's side markings using steering assistance as well as to maintain an even speed, combined with a preselected time interval to the vehicle ahead. This feature contributes to a more relaxed driving experience within speeds of 130 km/hour.
With the 360° Parking Camera, the driver can now see what is around all four sides of the car, simultaneously on the centre display, helping the driver observe everything around the car while manoeuvring at slow speeds.
The all-new Volvo ensures an “engaging, seamless experience” with driving pleasure while being connected to the road with control. It is inspiring and gives you a feeling of safety and trust, built for the modern business lifestyle - connected at all times. The ease of owning a Volvo makes life a little less complicated with features like The Sensus Navigation (map service); a fully integrated, connected navigation system that helps you get where you want to go as easily as possible. Helpful features include Send to Car, which allows you to send destinations to your car, either from your browser or through the Volvo On Call app.
Considering that we now spend more time in our cars than ever before, the need for an effective and reliable air conditioning system has never been greater. This is why Volvo developed the CleanZone philosophy. This is to create an in-car environment that would be safe for hypersensitive people with a keen focus on health and wellbeing, with more efficient multi- filter which is capable of intercepting more particles and pollen than ever before, designed to effectively remove a wide variety of contaminants that can cause harm to a driver’s health. Now breathe in the fresh air like you are in Sweden.
