Volvo's Deep History of Safety Innovation Continues Through 2019

Volvo has been dedicated to advancing vehicle safety since 1927, and that heritage has carried throughout the brand's entire history. Today, we're seeing new advancements as quickly as we ever have, and Volvo is continuing to carry the torch forward with new technology.

Volvo Safety Features

Features that Winston-Salem drivers have known for decades such as the three-point safety belt and side-impact protection were pioneered by Volvo, and today we're dealing in accident prevention technology as much as build quality and materials innovation. Our forward collision alert goes farther than any other by detecting far more than just stopped vehicles in your path. The Volvo system also picks up pedestrians, cyclists, and even larger animals on the road to the Triad area ahead, and sends a warning to keep nearby Salisbury drivers safe. Of course, our reactions aren't always perfect, and should you fail to apply the brakes yourself, automatic emergency braking takes over to help reduce or even prevent the impact.

Road edge detection can utilize not just lines on the road surface, but it can even detect when you've left the road. This system, called run-off road mitigation, will attempt to gently steer Kernersville drivers back onto the road surface so you can stay in control.

And while Volvo hasn't yet figured out how to prevent someone else from rear-ending you, they have gone to work to help protect you and your family when such an incident occurs. When sensing the approaching vehicle and predicting a potential impact, this system will pre-tension the seatbelts, begin closing the windows and moonroof, and even adjust your seating position to one that is more protective in order to reduce the effects of the impact on you and your passengers.

And of course, the Volvo Safety Cage surrounds Greensboro drivers with high-strength steel in more places to help maintain the integrity of the cockpit while dissipating energy around the outside of the passenger area.
