For the new XC60, Euro NCAP’s best overall performer in 2017, Volvo’s city safety autonomous emergency braking system has been enhanced with steering support since automatic braking alone may not help avoid a potential collision. In addition, oncoming lane mitigation with steer assist helps mitigate head-on collisions, and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with steer assist functionality has been added to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.
“I am pleased to see our company’s product investments paying off,” said Hakan Samuelsson, President and CEO of Volvo Cars. “We are up against some tough competition, but this award for the XC60 shows that Volvo has the right combination of design, connectivity and safety that appeals to customers across the world.”
In India the Volvo XC60 is available with a 2-litre diesel and gets a range of features like massaging seats, panoramic roof, eight airbags along with collision mitigation, pedestrian safety and more.
