State-of-the-art safety systems
Buying a luxury car isn’t just about status or premium comfort; you would want nothing but the absolute best in vehicle safety systems for your loved ones.
This is where Volvo is undoubtedly a leader, as the Swedish automaker is so passionate about safety that its vision is that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020.
For example, the Volvo XC90 has a pioneering ‘run-off road protection package’ that tightens the safety belts to hold passengers in place should the vehicle find itself airborne after veering off the road.
Also, in the XC90, an “auto brake at intersection” capability has been added, which automatically applies the brakes if the driver turns in front of an oncoming car and is similar to the City Safety system which also engages the auto brake function if it detects that the SUV (during day or night time) will collide with a vehicle, cyclist or pedestrian at the front of the car.
