What is the Volvo City Safety Package?

Volvo has long expressed a commitment to keeping its drivers and passengers safe in every model, which is why Volvo introduced its City Safety support system. This system features automatic braking, so you can avoid or mitigate collisions—its technology is cutting-edge, and is designed to keep you safe no matter what.

City Safety is able to activate braking if it senses a low-speed collision is imminent. It won’t activate automatic braking if the driver is already applying the brakes or steering, so you’re always in control. But if the driver doesn’t react quickly, City Safety is able to brake for you at speeds from 2 miles per hour to up to 31 miles per hour. It works in intersections (both city and highway), when backing out of spaces, in case of oncoming vehicles (including motorcycles), and in case of cyclists or pedestrians coming in front of your oncoming vehicle.

What Makes Volvo City Safety So Special?

This technology has come on every new Volvo vehicle produced since 2014, to further Volvo’s mission of keeping every driver as safe as possible. The automatic braking works to mitigate collisions, but is unique in that the actions of the driver take priority over the automation. Leominster, MA drivers appreciate the combined camera and radar unit that can easily detect oncoming collisions. It can determine where objects are, what they are, and where they’re moving, and then apply braking accordingly.
