The Volvo City Safety System helps in completely avoiding collisions at low speed or at least substantially mitigating the consequences. City Safety works with an laser sensor in the upper portion of the windscreen, responds to vehicles at a distance of up to six metres and is active at speeds of between 4 and 30 km/h. If the system establishes that there is a danger of collision when the car in front performs a sudden braking manoeuvre or because of a stationary vehicle, the car's own brake system swings into action. If the driver fails to respond to the danger situation, emergency braking is automatically initiated with a deceleration between 50 and 100 percent of the available brake friction force.


Volvo City Safety is fitted as standard to the Volvo S60, Volvo V60, Volvo XC60, Volvo XC70, Volvo V70 and Volvo S80 models.

The Adapative Cruise Control system automatically adapts speed and the distance from the vehicle ahead, defined by the driver himself. The system receives the necessary data from a radar sensor installed between the radiator grille (76 GHz unit, dual mode) and a computer vision camera, which is fitted between the interior mirror and windscreen.

"Collision Warning with Full Auto Brake and Pedestrian Detection" is active from a speed of 4 km/h to maximum speed (including when cruise control is deactivated) and warns the driver if there is collision risk with another vehicle or a pedestrian. The distances detected are 120 metres for vehicles travelling in the same direction and 65 metres for stationary vehicles. If the driver fails to respond and a collision is imminent, full braking is automatically activated in order to avoid the collision or to reduce the consequences of the collision as far as possible. Full braking takes place into the ABS control range with a deceleration of up to 100 % of the available brake friction force. All these features are available through the "Driver Support" package which is available as an option for the Volvo S60, Volvo V60, Volvo XC60, Volvo XC70, Volvo V70 and Volvo S80 models.
