These awards also reaf­firm that Volvo has the right com­bi­na­tion of de­sign, con­nec­tiv­ity and safety that ap­peals to cus­tomers across the world.”

In the new XC60, Euro NCAP’s best over­all per­former in 2017, Volvo’s City Safety Au­tonomous Emer­gency Brak­ing sys­tem has been en­hanced with steer­ing sup­port for when au­to­matic brak­ing alone may not help avoid a po­ten­tial col­li­sion. In ad­di­tion, On­com­ing Lane Mit­i­ga­tion with Steer As­sist which helps mit­i­gate head-on col­li­sions and Blind Spot In­for­ma­tion Sys­tem (BLIS) with Steer As­sist func­tion­al­ity has been added to re­duce the risk of lane-chang­ing col­li­sions.
