The 2011 S60 is also equipped with the revolutionary City Safety feature first pioneered by Volvo on the 2010 XC60 Crossover which debuted in the fall of 2009. The S60 joins the XC60 as a “car that stops itself” in order to prevent collisions in stop-and-go city traffic. City Safety comes standard on all XC60 crossovers and S60 sedans, and helps avoid or reduce the consequences of a collision at low speed by automatically braking the car and at the same time restricting engine power. This truly innovative safety system is designed to prevent or mitigate collisions occurring at speeds of 19 mph or less. Engineers estimate that City Safety can prevent up to 50% of all rear end collisions. 70% of all collisions occur at speeds of less than 10 mph or less, and 50% of these occur in city traffic situations.
Volvo has been synonymous with safety since the brand arrived in the U.S. in the mid-1950s. In fact, this year marks the 51st anniversary of the three point seat belt, another one of Volvo’s “firsts” credited as saving millions of lives as the single most effective passive safety feature in any vehicle. To this day, Volvo continues its heritage of safety with new innovations such as Pedestrian Detection and City Safety.
