The Innovative Safety Features of Volvo

Here at Al Star Volvo Cars of Baton Rouge, one of our goals is to help drivers stay safe, and it's also the goal of Volvo. Many drivers choose Volvo as their automotive brand of choice because it's a leader in the field of automobile safety. When it comes to safety, Volvo is always reaching for new heights of protection.

Volvo designs its vehicles to give drivers peace of mind and help them stay in full control when they're behind the wheel. The IntelliSafe System is the standard safety equipment that's featured with new Volvo cars. Volvo also engineers its automobiles with hot-formed, high-strength steel that provides all occupants with maximum protection in the event of a crash. Volvo's current generation of seats were designed with various grades of steel that offer optimal safety and comfort. There is an energy-absorbing function between the seat frame and seat that helps to reduce injuries to the spine during an accident.

City Safe is standard with every new Volvo model. Volvo is the first manufacturer in the industry to offer this safety system as a standard feature. With radar and camera technology, this system recognizes vehicles, pedestrians, and large animals. This feature will alert you when it detects an object in your path and can apply the emergency brakes if you don't react in time.

IntelliSafe Assist is a package of driver-assist innovations that include Adaptive Cruise Control, Pilot Assist, Distance Alert, and Curve Speed Adaption. Pilot Assist can reduce tension in stressful driving situations. This feature works with the navigation system and comes with an electronic horizon function that enhances control and accuracy when you're driving around turns. Distance Alert works with the Head-Up Display to warn you when the vehicle ahead is too close. When Distance Alert is disengaged, Adaptive Cruise Control can help you maintain a safe driving distance from the vehicle ahead.

IntelliSafe Surround provides you with brake support and steering assist through a number of high-tech features. This system is equipped with BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with steer assist to alert you when your blind spots aren't clear. Additional features that come with IntelliSafe Surround include Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Collision Warning.
