Report: Volvo's City Safety System Reducing Fender-Benders on Congested Streets
City Safety, Volvo’s low-speed collision avoidance system, is helping Volvo S60 and XC60 drivers avoid minor crashes on congested roads, according to a new report from the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI).
In fact, HLDI found that claims under property damage liability coverage were filed 16% less often for S60s than for other midsize luxury cars. For the XC60, such claims were filed 15% less often.
City Safety uses a light detection and ranging sensor built into the windshield to detect a stopped or slow-moving vehicle ahead. If a crash is imminent and the driver fails to react, the system applies the brakes before impact. City Safety operates at speeds up to 19 mph.
