Volvo Safety in Exeter, NH

See Why Volvo Remains a Leader in Automotive Safety

There's nothing more important than the safety of you and your family. That's why Volvo makes safety a priority in every car, wagon, or SUV we make. Safety has been one of Volvo's core values since 1927. It's our vision that no one should be seriously injured or killed in a Volvo vehicle. To that end, we've led the way with ground-breaking safety features that include the first three-point safety belt, the first booster chair for children, and the Side Impact Protection System. Volvo Cars of Exeter has a wide selection of new and used Volvo vehicles at our Exeter, NH dealership. Keep reading to see why you can rest assured about your safety in a Volvo.

Solid Passive Safety Systems

Each Volvo vehicle is made with a Boron steel safety cage to help protect you from the impact of a crash. They also come with energy-absorbing seats to reduce the likelihood of spine injuries. Portsmouth drivers will feel good about Volvo's advanced airbag system, which includes the driver airbag, located in the steering wheel; the front passenger airbag, located in the dashboard; side airbags, and inflatable curtains. The Volvo XC90 comes with a Whiplash Injury Protection System that reduces whiplash risk for both women and men.

Innovative New Safety Technology

Today's Volvo vehicles come with a suite of cutting-edge driver assistance features called IntelliSafe that can help you spot potential accidents and take action to avoid them. These innovations can also apply the brakes or help steer you away from trouble when necessary. Safety conscious people in Dover, NH will appreciate that the Volvo XC40 comes with lane-keeping aid. This feature senses when you start to leave your lane unintentionally and gently steers you back on track. If the XC40 is headed off the road, its run-off road mitigation automatically tightens the front safety belts to help keep you and your passenger inside the car where you're better protected.

Volvo's IntelliSafe Standard includes City Safety, which utilizes radar and camera technology to identify other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians, and large animals, day or night. York, ME drivers will have peace of mind with the Volvo S60's forward automatic emergency braking system. This feature warns you if it detects an imminent collision and, if you don't react in time, it can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision. The S60's Oncoming Lane Mitigation feature sounds an audible warning signal and automatically steers the car back into your lane if it detects that you're heading into the path of an oncoming vehicle.

The Volvo V60 comes standard with Road Sign Information (or traffic sign recognition), which automatically detects speed limit signs and displays them in the instrument panel so that Exeter drivers are aware of the current speed limit for the road they're on. The V60 also comes with pedestrian detection, which uses cameras and radar to detect pedestrians in front of the car. It then warns you if anyone walks out into its path - and then automatically activates the V60's full braking power if you fail to respond in time.

Volvo's IntelliSafe Surround includes blind-spot monitoring with steer assist, cross-traffic alert with brake support, and rear collision warning. The Volvo XC60's available rear cross-traffic alert system lets you know if another car, bicyclist, or pedestrian is about to pass behind you from either direction. This gives you an increased awareness of potential road users when reversing out of a parking space. People in Portsmouth will enjoy less driver fatigue with the XC60's optional adaptive cruise control, which helps them maintain a preset gap behind vehicles in front of them.
