Volvo XC90: Driver support / City Safety braking for oncoming vehicles

City Safety can help you apply the brakes for an oncoming vehicle in your lane.

If an oncoming vehicle veers into your lane and a collision is unavoidable, City Safety can help reduce your vehicle's speed to attempt to mitigate the force of the collision.

  • your vehicle must be positioned straight in your lane
  • the oncoming vehicle must be positioned within your vehicle's lane markings
  • the oncoming vehicle's headlights must be on
  • the function can only handle “front-tofront” collisions
  • the function can only detect vehicles with four wheels.

WARNING

Warnings and brake interventions due to an imminent collision with an oncoming vehicle always come very late.

    Automatic braking during delayed evasive maneuvers with City Safety

    City Safety1 can assist the driver by automatically braking the vehicle when it is not possible to avoid a collision by steering alone. City Safety assists the driver by periodically attempting to predict possible "escape routes" to the sides of the vehicle in the event a slow-moving or stationary vehicle were to be detected at a late stage...

    City Safety limitations

    City Safety1 functionality may be reduced in certain situations. Surroundings Low objects Hanging objects, such as flags for overhanging loads or accessories such as auxiliary lights or front protective grids that extend beyond the height of the hood, may limit City Safety functionality...
