The Volvo XC40 compact luxury SUV, set to launch in the fall, is designed for urban commuters and features a range of advanced safety technologies such as Volvo Cars’ semi-autonomous Pilot Assist system and the latest generation of City Safety, the automaker said.

Additional safety features include run-off road protection and mitigation, cross traffic alert with auto brake, and a 360-degree camera that helps drivers maneuver the car into tight parking spaces.

These safety technologies, based on Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), were first introduced in the company’s 90- and 60-series vehicles.

“Modern city life presents complex challenges for drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and other road users,” said Malin Ekholm, vice president of the Volvo Cars Safety Center. “With the XC40, we aim to reduce the so-called cognitive load on the driver. While our safety and driver assistance systems actively identify and mitigate potential conflicts, you as a driver can relax more and therefore enjoy city driving.”
