Understanding This Volvo Safety Feature

Volvo City Safety is a system that monitors your driving performance, as well as what’s happening on the road. It can detect pedestrians, bicycles, and other cars using cameras and radar and alert you if you get too close on city rounds near San Antonio. If you don’t react to the warning quickly enough, your Volvo can automatically brake for you to reduce or avoid the impact. Volvo City Safety can:

  • Detect vehicles and motorcycles traveling in the same direction and help you avoid a collision when moving up to 31 mph or lessen the impact if you’re driving faster.
  • Detect cyclists suddenly swerving or people and bikes crossing your path and help you avoid an incident when going up to 28 mph. At higher speeds, the system helps lessen the impact.
  • Detect objects in front of your car in the dark, as well as your proximity to them and their movement. The camera identifies what it is and monitors to assess the risk. If there is a risk, the system creates an audible alert and a sensory warning with a short braking pulse and flashing light in the lower part of the windshield. Automatic braking will be applied if you don’t react in time.
