Volvo on call

Introducing your app assistant

The XC40 is fitted with Volvo On Call, so you can control various functions of the car remotely. As part of Test Drive+, you will receive a phone that has been paired with your car.

Start your engine remotely

Start up your XC40 and its climate control will automatically switch on, too – perfect for starting journeys in comfort.

Send destinations direct to your car

Plan your journey, find your destination on your phone, and then send it straight to the XC40’s navigation system in just a few touches.

Access your driving journal

With Volvo On Call, you can effortlessly track your past journeys, mileage and fuel consumption.

Never lose your car again

First, see its location on a map and then sound your Volvo’s horn or flash its lights to help you find it.

Park assist pilot

Effortless parking every time

Park Assist Pilot’s “Park In” scans for a suitable parking space (bay or parallel) as small as 1.2x the size of your car and then steers to help you manoeuvre into it.

Parallel parking

By indicating, you can select which side of the road the car looks for spaces on. Winding roads or inconsistent kerbs can confuse the sensors. Later, use “Park Out” for help getting out of tight spaces.

Bay parking

By indicating, you can select which side the car looks for spaces on. Once a space is found, stop when instructed. The car will then steer you into the space. All you have to do is reverse.

Tips for Park Assist Pilot

The driver is still responsible for keeping a close watch around the car, following the instructions in the Centre Display, selecting the correct gear, controlling and maintaining a safe speed, braking and stopping.

Make yourself at home
