Volvo XC90: Automatic braking during delayed evasive maneuvers with City Safety - DRIVER SUPPORTVolvo XC90: Automatic braking during delayed evasive maneuvers with City Safety

City Safety1 can assist the driver by automatically braking the vehicle when it is not possible to avoid a collision by steering alone.

City Safety assists the driver by periodically attempting to predict possible "escape routes" to the sides of the vehicle in the event a slow-moving or stationary vehicle were to be detected at a late stage.

Your vehicle (1) cannot detect any potential escape routes for veering away from the vehicle ahead (2) and may therefore apply the brakes at an earlier stage.

City Safety will not intervene to automatically apply the brakes if it is possible for the driver to avoid a collision by steering the vehicle.

However, if City Safety determines that an evasive maneuver would not be possible due to traffic in the adjacent lane(s), the function can assist the driver by automatically starting to apply the brakes at an earlier stage.

1 This function is not available on all markets.
