Volvo has released another teaser video for the new XC40 small SUV. In this latest teaser, Volvo discusses how the Volvo XC40 will offer a list of safety and convenience features that are developed around the challenges of modern city life.
The Volvo XC40 will adopt the safety, connectivity and infotainment technologies that are already used by models, like the XC90 and XC60. The XC40 will be the first model to debut on the new CMA platform and it will offer features, like Volvo’s semi-autonomous Pilot Assist system, City Safety, Run-off Road protection and mitigation, Cross Traffic alert with auto brake and a 360-degree camera.
Volvo says that the XC40 was developed specifically for the city.
“Modern city life presents complex challenges for drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and other road users. With the XC40, we aim to reduce the so-called cognitive load on the driver. While our safety and driver assistance systems actively identify and mitigate potential conflicts, you as a driver can relax more and therefore enjoy city driving,” said Malin Ekholm, Vice President Volvo Cars Safety Centre.
Volvo hasn’t announced when we’ll finally get to see the Volvo XC40, but it definitely won’t happen at the Frankfurt Motor Show, since Volvo isn’t going to be at the show.
