Safety Features Make Volvo SUVs a Great Choice for a Family Car

When choosing a Volvo SUV for your family, you’ll likely look at various aspects such as seating capacity, ride quality, and cargo room. However, here at Beach Volvo, we know that your safety and that of your loved ones is likely going to be at the top of any list of desired features. Volvo SUVs come equipped with plenty of technology to ensure you get to your Myrtle Beach destinations safely.

All three of Volvo’s SUV models, the XC90, the XC60, and the XC40, offer features that make life easier for families in the Conway, SC area. An automatic rear tailgate, for example, can come in very handy when grocery shopping with kids in tow. Nowadays, staying constantly connected is top-of-mind for everyone in the Shallotte, NC area, so Volvo’s SUVs offer access to USB charging ports, even for passengers sitting in the rear seats. Family harmony is easier to achieve when everyone can adjust the temperature to their own liking. The XC60 and XC90 come with 2-zone and 4-zone automatic climate control, respectively.

Whether you’re driving locally in Pawleys Island or taking a cross-country trip, all three SUV models offer basic crash protection via airbags, with the XC60 and XC90 offering side impact airbags and even a knee airbag on the driver’s side. Of course, Volvo equips their vehicles with many safety features designed to avoid accidents in the first place. Oncoming Lane Mitigation aids in steering you away from oncoming vehicles, and Lane-Keeping Assist helps provides a warning if you leave your own lane.

Volvo goes further with more innovative technologies that include Road Sign Information, a feature which shows on the head-up display important signs, such as those specifying speed limits or forbidding entry, detected by a forward camera. Good visibility is imperative for a safe trip, and the Rainsensor feature helps by automatically starting the wipers in the event of rain or of water splashing on the windshield.

Detection of cyclists and pedestrians, and automatic braking on the part of the vehicle, come courtesy of Volvo’s City Safety feature. On long trips, Adaptive Cruise Control keeps driver fatigue at bay by making necessary speed adjustments. Come to Beach Volvo to learn more about the models in our new Volvo inventory!
