  • IntelliSafe Standard
    Inflatable Head-Protection Curtains (IC)

    In a frontal offset or side-on collision, the Inflatable Curtain helps protect the heads of both front and rear passengers who are sitting on the sides. It also stays inflated for several seconds to provide prolonged protection in the event of secondary impacts.

    Image2
    3-point safety belts with pre-tensioners for all seats

    A Volvo innovation, the three-point safety belts are the foremost safety feature inside your car. In a collision or roll-over, pre-tensioners instantly tighten the belts to keep the front and outer rear occupants tightly restrained. The belts then release a little to reduce the strain. This also means that the driver and front passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a controlled fashion. To help ensure maximum protection for you and your passengers, the safety belts also interact with the steering wheel column and supplementary restraint technologies such as the side airbags and the Inflatable Curtain.

    Image2
    City Safety

    City Safety adds to a relaxed driving experience in slow-moving city traffic. It constantly looks out for standstill or slower vehicles ahead and brakes automatically if needed to help you avoid or mitigate a collision. City Safety can sense an impending collision at speeds up to 50km/h – day and night – and can avoid a collision at a speed difference of up to 15 km/h to the vehicle in front.

    Image2
    Emergency brake flashing light

    Our Emergency Brake Light helps alert vehicles approaching from behind if you are forced to panic brake. It works above 50km/h and knows the difference between normal and panic braking. If it is a panic stop, the brake lights will flash at a rate of four times per second, which will telegraph a clear message to following traffic that there’s a potential problem ahead. Once you slow to below 10km/h, the brake lights stop pulsing and your hazard lights take over.

    Image2
    Side Impact Protection System (SIPS)

    SIPS™ side impact protection system helps protect you and your passengers in a side-collision. The body's steel framework – including the front seat frames – displaces the impact of a side-collision away from the occupants to other parts of the car body. The extremely strong side structure helps withstand a severe side impact – even with a larger vehicle. The Inflatable Curtain and the front seat side airbags interact with the SIPS™ to help provide further protection for the front seat occupants. In the rear, SIPS™ and the Inflatable Curtain help protect the passengers in the outer rear seats.

    Image2
    Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS)

    WHIPS™ is a Volvo safety innovation that efficiently helps reduce the risk of whiplash injury if your car is hit from behind. At an impact, the entire front backrest and head restraint moves with the occupant to support the neck.

  • Preventive safety
    Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC) with Advanced Stability Control

    It can catch you out when you least expect it. And it really is a heart-stopping moment when, on a rain-slicked or ice-covered road, the tail of your car steps out as it threatens to go into a skid. Steer into that skid and you can end up fishtailing, and ultimately, going into a spin. This is precisely the kind of scenario that has made Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) one of our most vital safety advances of the past decade. The system looks at factors like what direction the car is travelling, how fast the wheels are rotating and how much steering lock is applied. Using all this information, DSTC can detect a potential skid and take action to prevent it by reducing engine power and/or braking the appropriate wheels.

    Image2
    Automatic full LED headlights

    Our signature design LED headlights combine an impactful look with a supremely wide and long light pattern. And adding our Driver Alert System, the Active High Beam takes care of dipping the lights, enhancing your convenience and illumination. During daytime, the distinctive hammer-shaped light guides act as daytime running lights to make your car more conspicuous. And when needed, the dipped headlights are automatically engaged. With Active High Beam (included in our Driver Alert System) you can stay on high beam all the time – when you meet or catch up with another vehicle the headlamps flick automatically between high and low beam to optimise your vision without dazzling the other driver. They're intelligent too: the high beam shuts off when you enter a city, but if you drive past an illuminated sign it stays on. Contributing to improved fuel economy and lower running costs, the LED lights are extremely energy efficient and last the lifetime of the car without losing any luminance.

    Image2
    "Thor's Hammer" LED Daytime Running Lights

    Our most advanced LED headlights provide exceptional light, help you see through corners and optimize your vision without dazzling others by constantly adapting the light pattern. As you steer, the headlights turn to illuminate the curve ahead. LED illumination allows you to enjoy high beam with even greater radiation and range. And you can stay on high beam all the time – when you meet or catch up another car, the headlights shade out just as much of your beam as needed to not dazzle the other driver. The greater illuminated area also benefits other road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists. The headlights are intelligent too: the high beam shuts off when you enter a city, but if you drive past an illuminated sign it stays on.

    This feature also includes fog lamps that help improve your vision when driving in fog or heavy precipitation. And facilitating low speed manoeuvring and reversing in the dark, they turn up to 15 degrees as you steer to illuminate the area close to the car. They also complement the distinctive design of your Volvo. Included in the Full LED headlights for all model variants except the T8 Twin Engine AWD.

  • Child safety
  • Child safety equipment
    Passenger Airbag Cut Off (PACOS)

    This switch allows you to conveniently disengage the passenger airbag if you intend to put a rearward-facing child seat in the front passenger seat. The switch can only be accessed with the door open. When the airbag is switched off, you’re notified by a message on the roof console display.

    Image2
    Manual rear child lock

    The power child lock enables you to conveniently lock the rear doors and rear power windows from the driver’s seat and prevent them from being opened from the inside.

    Image2
  • Security
    Volvo guard alarm with interior movement sensor

    The alarm helps guard your Volvo when parked and deter uninvited visits. It also reacts to movement inside the car, the breaking of a window and if someone tries to steal your wheels or tow your car away. It is automatically activated when you lock the car and is connected to the doors, bonnet and tailgate. A level sensor deters thieves from jacking up the car to steal your wheels or tow it away while the deadlock function makes it impossible for a thief to open the doors from the inside once the car is locked from the outside. The movement sensor, level sensor and deadlock function can be switched off so people or pets can be left inside the parked and locked car.

    Image2
    Key Integrated Remote control central locking (KIR)

    Lock and unlock the doors and tailgate securely and conveniently using the remote control. And upon leaving or entering your car, you can close or open all windows at the touch of a button. Adding to your security, you can unlock the tailgate separately. This allows you to access your load compartment while nobody else can open any of the doors from the outside.

    Image2
    Keyless entry and start

    As long as you bring your remote control in the car, the keyless start function allows you to start the engine simply by turning the start knob while depressing the brake pedal.

    Image2
    Electronic immobiliser

    Not only will the door locks withstand most break-in attempts, the electronic immobiliser makes it impossible to start the engine without the right remote control. And even if a would-be thief manages to get into the car via a window, the optional deadlock system makes it impossible to open the doors from the inside.

    Image2
    Approach and Home Safe Lighting

    Enhancing security as you approach your car at night, exterior light sources illuminate the closest surroundings when you unlock using the remote. And when leaving the car, just pull the headlight stalk to light up the path to your door. These functions can be set in a choice of 30, 60 or 90 seconds duration.

    Image2
  • Seats
    Power adjustable driver seat with memory function

    The memory function of the power operated driver seat and door mirrors helps ensure your Volvo is perfectly adjusted to your personal preferences every time you enter the car. Every time you use your remote control for the central locking, the driver seat and door mirrors will automatically adjust to your preferences (you get two remote controls with your Volvo and can order up to four more). Each remote control triggers the corresponding setting from the last time that particular remote control was used. Furthermore, you can save up to three different seat and door mirror settings by using the buttons on the seat. And an electrically adjustable passenger seat is also optionally available.

  • Climate
    Electronic Climate Control (ECC) with pollen filter

    Electronic Climate Control maintains the cabin temperature you choose and can be set independently for the driver and front passenger. And contributing to your health and comfort, the system helps ensure cabin air has an appropriate level of humidity.

    Image2
    Panoramic glass roof

    Our fixed panoramic roof adds a superb experience of airiness and light for everyone inside your Volvo. A power-operated sunshade in perforated textile reduces glare on sunny days while maintaining the airy feel inside the cabin. The sunshade opens from the rear so your rear seat passengers can enjoy the ambience of light while the driver and the front passenger are still shaded. Dark tinted laminated glass further increases climate comfort and security. It also helps protect from UV radiation.

    Image2
  • Storage
    Front cup holders

    Keeping refreshments within convenient reach, the two cup holders for the driver and front seat passenger are hidden under an elegant roll-top cover. To provide extra storage, the cup holders can be removed.

    Daytime Running Lights with daylight sensor

    The Daytime Running Lights help ensure your visibility in daylight. When light conditions change and the headlights are needed, the headlights activate automatically. They will also be activated if you turn on the windscreen wipers or the rear fog light.

    Image2
    Automatic anti-dazzle rear view mirror

    The inner rear view mirror dims automatically to help prevent you from being dazzled by the headlights of traffic behind. Once the blinding light ceases, the mirror glass reverts to normal mode automatically.

  • Communication
    Bluetooth hands-free system and USB function

    Want to access your mobile phone while you’re on the road to find an address, lay out a route in the navigation system and call ahead that you’re on your way? The on-board Bluetooth® technology lets you do all this wirelessly through the infotainment system – and play some music along the way. Once configured for a mobile phone, the system automatically recognises your phone as you enter the car. And as you get in and out of the car, the system automatically allows you to switch freely from the phone to the handsfree system and back again. The audio systems High Performance and Premium Sound by Harman Kardon include an integrated Bluetooth® handsfree system, allowing you to operate your phone conveniently using the buttons on the steering wheel or the centre console keypad. Phone information is shown on the centre console multimedia display. And if you’ve chosen Sensus Navigation system, you can make your calls using voice control. What’s more, you can stream high quality audio from a media player and listen to it through the car’s audio system.

    The Bluetooth® word mark and logos are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc. and any use of such marks by Volvo Car Corporation is under licence. Other trademarks and trade names are those of their respective owners.

It also reacts to movement inside the car, the breaking of a window and if someone tries to steal your wheels or tow your car away. It is automatically activated when you lock the car and is connected to the doors, bonnet and tailgate. A level sensor deters thieves from jacking up the car to steal your wheels or tow it away while the deadlock function makes it impossible for a thief to open the doors from the inside once the car is locked from the outside. The movement sensor, level sensor and deadlock function can be switched off so people or pets can be left inside the parked and locked car provided that it's appropriate due to temperature, weather and other external conditions.

    Inflatable Head-Protection Curtains (IC)

    In a frontal offset or side-on collision, the Inflatable Curtain helps protect the heads of both front and rear passengers who are sitting on the sides. It also stays inflated for several seconds to provide prolonged protection in the event of secondary impacts.

    Image2
    3-point safety belts with pre-tensioners for all seats

    A Volvo innovation, the three-point safety belts are the foremost safety feature inside your car. In a collision or roll-over, pre-tensioners instantly tighten the belts to keep the front and outer rear occupants tightly restrained. The belts then release a little to reduce the strain. This also means that the driver and front passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a controlled fashion. To help ensure maximum protection for you and your passengers, the safety belts also interact with the steering wheel column and supplementary restraint technologies such as the side airbags and the Inflatable Curtain.

    Image2
    City Safety

    City Safety adds to a relaxed driving experience in slow-moving city traffic. It constantly looks out for standstill or slower vehicles ahead and brakes automatically if needed to help you avoid or mitigate a collision. City Safety can sense an impending collision at speeds up to 50km/h – day and night – and can avoid a collision at a speed difference of up to 15 km/h to the vehicle in front.

    Image2
    Emergency brake flashing light

    Our Emergency Brake Light helps alert vehicles approaching from behind if you are forced to panic brake. It works above 50km/h and knows the difference between normal and panic braking. If it is a panic stop, the brake lights will flash at a rate of four times per second, which will telegraph a clear message to following traffic that there’s a potential problem ahead. Once you slow to below 10km/h, the brake lights stop pulsing and your hazard lights take over.

    Image2
    Side Impact Protection System (SIPS)

    SIPS™ side impact protection system helps protect you and your passengers in a side-collision. The body's steel framework – including the front seat frames – displaces the impact of a side-collision away from the occupants to other parts of the car body. The extremely strong side structure helps withstand a severe side impact – even with a larger vehicle. The Inflatable Curtain and the front seat side airbags interact with the SIPS™ to help provide further protection for the front seat occupants. In the rear, SIPS™ and the Inflatable Curtain help protect the passengers in the outer rear seats.

    Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS)

    WHIPS™ is a Volvo safety innovation that efficiently helps reduce the risk of whiplash injury if your car is hit from behind. At an impact, the entire front backrest and head restraint moves with the occupant to support the neck.

  • Preventive safety
    Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC) with Advanced Stability Control

    It can catch you out when you least expect it. And it really is a heart-stopping moment when, on a rain-slicked or ice-covered road, the tail of your car steps out as it threatens to go into a skid. Steer into that skid and you can end up fishtailing, and ultimately, going into a spin. This is precisely the kind of scenario that has made Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC) one of our most vital safety advances of the past decade. The system looks at factors like what direction the car is travelling, how fast the wheels are rotating and how much steering lock is applied. Using all this information, DSTC can detect a potential skid and take action to prevent it by reducing engine power and/or braking the appropriate wheels.

    Automatic full LED headlights

    Our signature design LED headlights combine an impactful look with a supremely wide and long light pattern. And adding our Driver Alert System, the Active High Beam takes care of dipping the lights, enhancing your convenience and illumination. During daytime, the distinctive hammer-shaped light guides act as daytime running lights to make your car more conspicuous. And when needed, the dipped headlights are automatically engaged. With Active High Beam (included in our Driver Alert System) you can stay on high beam all the time – when you meet or catch up with another vehicle the headlamps flick automatically between high and low beam to optimise your vision without dazzling the other driver. They're intelligent too: the high beam shuts off when you enter a city, but if you drive past an illuminated sign it stays on. Contributing to improved fuel economy and lower running costs, the LED lights are extremely energy efficient and last the lifetime of the car without losing any luminance.

    Image2
    "Thor's Hammer" LED Daytime Running Lights

    Our most advanced LED headlights provide exceptional light, help you see through corners and optimize your vision without dazzling others by constantly adapting the light pattern. As you steer, the headlights turn to illuminate the curve ahead. LED illumination allows you to enjoy high beam with even greater radiation and range. And you can stay on high beam all the time – when you meet or catch up another car, the headlights shade out just as much of your beam as needed to not dazzle the other driver. The greater illuminated area also benefits other road users, such as pedestrians and cyclists. The headlights are intelligent too: the high beam shuts off when you enter a city, but if you drive past an illuminated sign it stays on.

    This feature also includes fog lamps that help improve your vision when driving in fog or heavy precipitation. And facilitating low speed manoeuvring and reversing in the dark, they turn up to 15 degrees as you steer to illuminate the area close to the car. They also complement the distinctive design of your Volvo. Included in the Full LED headlights for all model variants except the T8 Twin Engine AWD.

    The memory function of the power operated driver seat and door mirrors helps ensure your Volvo is perfectly adjusted to your personal preferences every time you enter the car. Every time you use your remote control for the central locking, the driver seat and door mirrors will automatically adjust to your preferences (you get two remote controls with your Volvo and can order up to four more). Each remote control triggers the corresponding setting from the last time that particular remote control was used. Furthermore, you can save up to three different seat and door mirror settings by using the buttons on the seat. And an electrically adjustable passenger seat is also optionally available.
