Volvo is all set to be able to unveil the new XC60 for the Geneva Motor Show. Around all the hype as well as hoopla, the Swedish carmaker has teased us with an image, working on the grille as well as the headlights of the Vehicle.
Volvo has also revealed more info . about the safety features. Any XC60 will feature 3 new advanced vehicle driver assistance features for optimum safety ever offered on a Volvo car.
Malin Ekholm, Senior citizen Director, Volvo Cars Safety Core said,”We have been working with collision avoidance systems for many years and we is able to see how effective they are. In Sweden on it’s own we have seen a decline of around 45 per-cent in rear-end frontal crashes thanks to our collision warning with auto-brake system. With the XC60 we are going to take the next step in reducing avoidable collisions with the addition of steering support plus assistance systems. All of these new features represent very clear steps in our work at fully autonomous motor vehicles. Our vision is the fact that no one will be murdered or seriously injured from a new Volvo car by way of the year 2020.”
The City Wellbeing system has been changed in the XC60 to support directing direction changes, if auto braking by yourself fails to avoid wreck. City Safety really helps to avoid collisions by using vehicles, pedestrians and big animals. Steering service is active between 50-100kmph.
Then there is something called Oncoming Lane Mitigation which gives steering assistance in case the driver mitigates into the completely wrong lane. This system is definitely active between 60-140kmph.
Finally theres the not compulsory Blind Spot Facts System alerting the motorist of vehicles contained in the blind spot. Again, this system provides automatic steering information to avoid collision.
Like all the other Volvo cars, the XC60 will even comprise of high-end safety methods, just like its more substantial 90 Series sisters and brothers, including Large Creature Detection, Run-off Road Minimization and the semi-autonomous driver assistance and convenience method Pilot Assist as an option.
