2018 Volvo XC60 Would Show XC90 Who’s In Charge

By  | 

The upcoming 2018 Volvo XC60 is going to show the XC90 who is really in charge as Volvo is going to use the XC60, which has been redesigned, to move closer towards having a vehicle that is fully autonomous by 2021.

The second generation of the Volvo XC60 is going to be making its debut in Geneva on 7 March and it is going to show off three new advanced driver assistance features. These will give the driver automatic steering assistance and/or support and this could help the driver to avoid collisions.

The Volvo XC60 will have the City Safety system and this has now been updated to offer steering assistance. This feature comes in to play when automatic braking isn’t enough to avoid a potential collision. Steering support is available between 31mph and 62mph.

Oncoming Lane Mitigation is also a part of the system and this helps the driver of the Volvo XC60 to avoid a collision with a vehicle that is travelling in the opposite direction. The system will alert the driver if they are drifting out of their own lane and automatically steer the vehicle out of the path of any approaching vehicle. This is said to work between 37mph to 87mph.

Both of these system are fitted as standard on the new version of the Volvo XC60 and really show the XC90 just who is really in charge.
