Volvo XC90: Using passing assistance - DRIVER SUPPORTVolvo XC90: Using passing assistance

Passing assistance can be used with Adaptive Cruise Control* or Pilot Assist*. Several conditions must be met for passing assistance to be possible.

In order to activate passing assistance:

  • your vehicle must be following a vehicle ahead (target vehicle)
  • your vehicle's current speed must be at least 70 km/h (43 mph)
  • the set speed must be high enough to safely pass another vehicle.

To start passing assistance:

  • Turn on the left turn signal.
    • Passing assistance will start.

WARNING

The driver should be aware that if conditions suddenly change when using Passing Assistance, the function may implement an undesired acceleration in certain conditions. Some situations should be avoided, e.g. if:

  • the vehicle is approaching an exit in the same direction as passing would normally occur
  • the vehicle ahead slows before your vehicle has had time to switch to the passing lane
  • traffic in the passing lane slows down

Situations of this type can be avoided by temporarily putting Adaptive Cruise Control or Pilot Assist in standby mode.
