Also debuting on the redesigned XC60 will be a lane keep assist feature that helps drivers avoid accidents with vehicles in an oncoming lane.

Indeed, according to Volvo's own research in Sweden alone, cars that have been fitted with its latest Collision Warning with Autobrake system see a 45-percent reduction in rear-end frontal crashes. Right now, City Safety can spot an upcoming collision with a vehicle ahead, and lean on the brakes if that could help prevent a crash. It watches for pedestrians, cars and animals at speeds between 31 and 62 miles per hour.
"We have been working with collision avoidance systems for many years and we can see how effective they are", says Volvo safety center senior director Malin Ekholm. It will only engage if automatic braking alone will be insufficient to avoid a potential collision. In such cases, the system will provide steering assistance to avoid obstacles such as vehicles, pedestrians and large animals, at speeds between 50 and 100 km/h. Notably, this system is active at speeds up to 87 miles per hour.

Volvo Cars' optional Blind Spot Information System, which alerts drivers to the presence of vehicles in their blind spot, has also received an update to include steer assist functionality that helps to avoid potential collisions with vehicles in a blind spot by steering the auto back into its own lane and away from danger.
