A technology that will help keep the driver in control at all times, especially in tedious driving situations and encouraging safe speed and distance. To help further increase safe driving, Adaptive Cruise Control keeps a preset gap up in any driving situation.

In addition, our improved safety belts and BLIS system are continuing to keep our drivers safe. When you visit our showroom in Bayside and test-drive a Volvo and see the safety features in action and drive with confidence that you know you're going the extra mile to keep your family safe on the road.

Volvo Adaptive Cruise Control
Pilot Assist

Pilot Assist is designed to provide collaborative, intelligent and directable assistance while the driver maintains control at all times. Pilot Assist reduces driver strain in tedious driving situations and increases safety margins. The system delivers enhanced speed and distance keeping and a more consistent and precise position in lane. When activated, the system also has a positive effect if a conflict is about to happen - the performance in emergency steering and braking is improved.

Volvo Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control

Helping you to maintain your preset gap to vehicles in front at all speeds up to 200 km/h, Adaptive Cruise Control is a supportive partner for a more relaxed driving experience, reducing driver strain in tedious driving situations. It also offers more precise safety margins to the vehicle ahead.

Just select the desired speed and time gap to the vehicle in front. When the radar sensor detects a slower vehicle in front, the speed automatically adapts to that vehicle. And when the road is clear, the car resumes the selected speed. Whenever you want, you can also select conventional cruise control.

Volvo Distance Alert
Distance Alert

If Adaptive Cruise Control is disengaged and a vehicle in front comes too close, the distance alert function activates a warning to help you keep a safe distance. This function is available in cars that are equipped with a Head-Up Display (HUD).

Volvo Safety Belts
Safety Belts

Without a doubt, the most critical safety feature in the car the three-point safety belt, and knowing about Volvo's commitment to safety, it is no surprise that the first auto manufacturer to put the belt into production was Volvo Cars in 1959.

Sixty years later Volvo continues to make improvements to the safety belt, and today they offer electrical reversible retractors to help position the front seat occupants in advance of a potential crash. The optional function works by exerting a pulling force over the shoulder of the occupant and is further enhanced if required with the use of a pyrotechnic belt tensioner. If the driver is able to avoid a crash, the belt tension is released automatically.

Volvo Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)
Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)

BLIS (Blind Spot Information) with steer assist allows you to change lanes with confidence on the highway by alerting you to when other drivers are around you. Using radar sensors, you are alerted to a driver approaching from behind or on either side of you. When the BLIS detects a driver approaching the left or right side mirror will illuminate to warn you of their presence and stay lit until your blind spot is clear and safe to change lanes. This alert system accompanied with steer assist will keep you safe at a critical moment.
