Volvo Reveals XC90 Driving and Safety Features
volvo | July 23, 2014
Volvo hasn’t yet revealed the entirety of its all-new XC90 SUV, but we have seen details on the vehicle’s new interior and technologies and 400hp powertrain options. Volvo has returned with yet more information on the upcoming model, including views of the vehicle’s parking assist feature, traffic alerts, the 360 degree surround view, and the safety of the new body structure. Keep in mind that the videos shown are illustrated with a generic car rather than the new XC90 itself.
Park Assist Pilot, seen in the video above, offers automatic reversing into a parallel space or parking bay along with helping the driver locate an open space large enough for the vehicle.
Cross Traffic Alert assists the driver when backing out of a parking space, warning of oncoming traffic up to about 100 feet on either side.
360˚ Surround View gives the driver a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle and the surrounding area; done through the use of four fish-eye cameras.
The XC90 Body Structure includes a complete safety cage around the occupants made from hot-formed boron steel, which is the strongest type of steel presently used in the car body industry. The safety cage is designed for maximum occupant protection for all types of crash scenarios.
