Volvo XC90: Driver support / Steering assistance at risk of collision

The Collision avoidance function can help the driver reduce the risk of the vehicle leaving its lane unintentionally and/or colliding with another vehicle or obstacle by actively steering the vehicle back into its lane and/or swerving.

The function consists of these subfunctions:

  • Run-Off Mitigation with steering assistance
  • Steering assistance during collision risks from oncoming traffic
  • Steering assistance during collision risks from behind*

After the system has automatically intervened, this text message will appear in the instrument panel:

Collision avoidance – Automatic intervention

  • The function is supplementary driver support intended to facilitate driving and help make it safer – it cannot handle all situations in all traffic, weather and road conditions.
  • The driver is advised to read all sections in the Owner's Manual about this function to learn of its limitations, which the driver must be aware of before using the function.
  • Driver support functions are not a substitute for the driver's attention and judgment. The driver is always responsible for ensuring the vehicle is driven in a safe manner, at the appropriate speed, with an appropriate distance to other vehicles, and in accordance with current traffic rules and regulations.
