Groundbreaking safety in the all-new V40

The all-new Volvo V40 is an excellent example of Volvo Car Corporation’s ability to turn real-life traffic knowledge into groundbreaking technology.

It features Pedestrian Detection with full auto brake - as well as the improved City Safety, which now operates at speeds up to 50 km/h. Among the new features are world-first Pedestrian Airbag Technology, Lane Keeping Aid with haptic auto steering, Active High Beam and a Cross Traffic Alert radar system at the rear.

“The risk of being involved in an accident or being injured in a Volvo is continuously reduced. We keep on moving towards our safety vision that nobody should die or suffer serious injuries in a new Volvo car by the year 2020,” concludes Thomas Broberg.
