As drivers from Laurel to Shepherd know, the vehicles in the new Volvo lineup offer sophisticated styling, luxurious interiors, spirited performance. They also come with a wide range of advanced safety features designed to provide extra peace-of-mind wherever you drive. If you've been wondering "What is Volvo City Safety?", the experts here at Underriner Volvo can explain all that this innovative driver assist system has to offer.

Understanding This Volvo Safety Feature 

Volvo City Safety monitors your driving performance, as well as what's happening on the road around you. Using cameras and radar, the system can detect pedestrians, bicycles, and other cars and alert you if the situation is potentially hazardous. If you don't immediately react to the warning, your Volvo can automatically apply the brakes for you to reduce speed and avoid the impact. Here's what Volvo City Safety can do:

  • Detect vehicles and motorcycles traveling in the same direction and help you avoid a collision at speeds of up to 31 mph, or lessen the impact if you're driving faster.
  • Detect when pedestrians and bikes cross your path and help you avoid an accident when driving at speeds of up to 28 mph. At higher speeds, the system can help reduce the possible impact.
  • Detect objects in front of your car in the dark. The camera identifies what the object is and monitors it to assess the risk. If a collision is imminent, the system sends an audible alert and a sensory warning with a short braking pulse and flashing light in the lower part of the windshield. Automatic braking will be applied if you don't react in a timely fashion.
