The Swedish based automaker Volvo has released several videos in which the equipment found on the new generation of the XC90 is being detailed.
The 2015 Volvo XC90 is ending up in our news once again, this time with the help of several videos, which have been released by the company. The model in question will gain the run-off road protection, being the first one in the world to get it. The vehicle will detect, automatically, an accident which will cause I to go off the road and it will react by tightening the front safety belts in order to keep the occupants in position.
The seatbelts will remain firm until the XC90 will come to a complete stop. The Safe Positioning will prevent spine injuries by reducing the vertical occupant forces. Volvo will also introduce the Lane Keeping Aid which will apply additional steering torque if the vehicle will exit the lane unintentionally. The Driver Alert Control will also be found on the model and this will detect and warn tired or inattentive drivers. The Rest Stop Guidance will provide info about the nearest rest area.
The safety equipment list will not stop here as the car manufacturer will also add the road sign information, the blind spot information, adaptive cruise control with steer assist, the barrier detection with steer assist, the pedestrian detection in darkness, a Car 2 Car Communication and much more. The new generation of the Volvo XC90 will be officially unveiled this August and it will probably make its public debut in October, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
