Volvo XC90: Starting and driving / Low Speed Control

The low-speed function (LSC1) facilitates and improves control and traction on rough roads and slippery surfaces, e.g. when towing a trailer on grass or up boat ramps.

In vehicles equipped with drive mode control *, the function is included in the Off Road drive mode.

Low Speed Control is designed for driving on rough roads and when towing trailers at low speeds, up to approximately 40 km/h (25 mph).

Low Speed Control prioritizes low gear positions and traction. If the vehicle is all-wheel drive, power is automatically distributed evenly to provide as much traction as possible on all wheels and reduce the risk of wheel spin. The accelerator pedal will be less responsive to improve traction and speed control at low speeds.

The function is activated together with Hill Descent Control (HDC2), which makes it possible to control speed going down steep hills using the accelerator pedal and reduces the need to use the brake pedal. The system makes it possible to maintain a low and uniform speed when driving down steep hills.

NOTE

When LSC with HDC is activated, the feel of the accelerator pedal and engine response will change.

NOTE

This drive mode is not designed to be used for normal street driving.

NOTE

The function is deactivated when driving at high speeds and must be reactivated at lower speeds if so desired.
