Safety by Volvo Cars
Defining automotive safety
City Safety helps to protect people inside and outside the car by spotting potential danger and helping you avoid it. Volvo Cars was the first to introduce this type of safety system as standard in every new Volvo car. City Safety uses radar and camera technology to identify other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals, such a moose, elk or horses, day or night. It warns you if it detects an imminent collision and, if you don’t react in time, it can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision.
At speed differences up to 50 km/h between the car and the vehicle in front, a collision can be avoided if the driver does not react. At higher speed differences, the collision can be mitigated. In some of our cars City Safety also includes Steering Support, which helps you to steer away from danger as effectively and safely as possible.
