Get a Load of All the Safety Features Available on the 2018 Volvo XC60 Momentum


A post shared by Volvo Car USA (@volvocarusa) on

Although it's still relatively new to our South Gilbert Road showroom, the 2018 Volvo XC60 seems intent to pick up right where it's super-popular predecessor left off! Still adhering to the Swedish automaker's long-standing commitment to safety and security, it's dialed up innovation and luxury in equal measure to become a truly alluring utility prospect. But for those wondering how to get the most out of Volvo's emphasis in this area, here are some helpful tips.

A luxury crossover though it may be, the XC60's accessible starting price will certainly draw in many who never considered one. Better yet, the base Momentum model can be equipped with all three Drive-E engines, and comes loaded with standard safety systems, including:

  • Hill Descent Control/Start Assist.
  • Rear Park Assist Camera.
  • Lane Keeping Aid, Road Sign Information, Volvo On Call.

And those are just the ones that are included in all Momentum models. Select the 250-hp T5 AWD--the most value-oriented for some--and you can select from a number of additional packages and suites that hold even more security promise.

Equipping a Vision package, for example, brings Park Assist Pilot and front/rear parking sensors, Blind-Spot Information with cross traffic alert, and even power-folding mirrors. This bundle can be furthered with the Advanced offering (which requires the Vision set), with its graphical heads-up display, active bending headlights, 360-degree camera, and more! Some of those features can be equipped as a stand-alone option.

The most essential addition any XC60 can benefit from, however, is the Convenience package. On the safety front, this adds the likes of the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving system, power child locks on the rear doors, and heated wiper blades. But this set also comes with other must-have goodies--ranging from a hands-free tailgate to drive mode selections!

Did we mention that all this equipment is available at the XC60's entry point? While their exact availability may vary in our new Volvo inventory, our Gilbert, AZ dealership can help direct you towards (or order) the model that best fits! Let us know if you have any questions, or if you want to sign up for a test drive.
