Volvo Keeps Focus on Driver Safety for 2020

Take a minute to consider some of the safest cars on the road in DFW. What names come to mind. First and foremost, it should be Volvo. For more than 90 years, Volvo has put a premium on customer safety. It has long been one of the core values of Volvo as they strive to be a leader in driver safety. That is why you can trust the selection of new Volvo vehicles from Autobahn Volvo Cars in Fort Worth.

It starts with the Scandinavian engineering, which has perfected the art of designing their vehicles for safety and extends to the state-of-the-art technology geared to provide an extra layer of protection as you conquer the streets of DFW-area. Volvo knows not every collision is avoidable. That is when you notice the difference Volvo engineering plays. You can see it as you explore the long list of standard and available driver-assist features in each Volvo model.

Protecting Your Most Precious Passengers

It is one thing to conduct crash tests with your average-sized adult. Volvo takes into account, not every passenger is completely grown. Our engineers run tests based on real-world traffic scenarios. That includes children. Volvo recommends children ride in rear-facing safety seats until they reach four years old.

Since 1965, Volvo has been designing rearward facing car seats and have evolved the technology based on continuous testing. Volvo-designed car seats are constructed with 80 percent natural wool for a comfortable riding experience for children and come in a variation of child age and size levels to adapt as your youngster grows older.

Intellisafe Technology

The standard set of safety technology on Volvo models is called Intellisafe. The City Safety package is an intuitive interface that uses radar and cameras to serve as a virtual watchdog as you cruise the streets. It keeps an eye out for pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals that may be blocking the streets. City Safety detects the impending collision and acts accordingly to keep you safe. Whether you are riding around Keller or on the highway to Fort Worth, your Volvo is looking out for you.
