Luxury car manufacturer, Volvo has announced the unveiling of their
new XC60 model at the 87th International Geneva Motor Show. Volvo has said the
new XC60 will feature three new advance driver assistance features which can
prevent an accident and steer the vehicle out of trouble.
The new safety features which have been added to the XC60 provide
automatic steering assistance and support if required in order to avert a
potential collision. This is believed by Volvo to potentially make their new
offering one of the safest cars on the road today.
The new XC60 has an updated City Safety which includes steering support. The support mechanism engages automatically when auto braking alone will not be adequate enough to circumvent a collision. Under stipulated conditions the car's safety systems provide steering assistance to avoid obstacles like vehicles, pedestrians and large animals ahead. However, this steering support system is active only between 50-100kmph.
The Swedish car major has also added Oncoming Lane Mitigation, to avoid headlong collisions. This system alerts the driver if he has strayed into a different driving lane and provides steering assistance to guide the vehicle back to the lane of origin and out of the path of oncoming traffic. Volvo has ensured this system stays active between 60-140kmph.
Volvo's optional Blind Spot Information System, that alerts drivers about obstacles in their blind spot has also received an update to include the steer assist function and avert any potential collision with vehicles in the drivers blind spot. The XC 60 will also feature all the safety features of Volvo's larger 90 series vehicles. Some other safety features to be included on the new XC60 are Large Animal Detection, Run-off Road Mitigation, Semi-Autonomous driver support and convenience system Pilot Assistance.
The XC60 will deliver a host of high-end safety systems, just like its larger 90 Series siblings, including Large Animal Detection, Run-off Road Mitigation and the semi-autonomous driver support and convenience system Pilot Assist as an option.
