Designing and developing safety features are among the most exciting challenges for any carmaker, and at Volvo we take particular pride in the development of our safety innovations. In fact, in 2000 we created a unique crash-test safety laboratory that enables us to recreate many different accident types on the road in order to not only test the safety of our cars, but to also help us improve our safety features.
And yet for us, it isn’t enough to just invent safety features. The greater challenge is making sure that those features are as accessible and intuitive as possible. Our Lane Departure Warning System, for example, was carefully evaluated again and again, not just for functionality, but also to ensure that it would never be disruptive to the driver.
Similarly, our City Safety technology is a revolutionary technology that actually engages the brake system should the driver not react to an approaching vehicle at 19 mph or less. The Volvo XC60 is the first vehicle to offer this innovative technology as a standard feature.
