2017 Volvo S90

4 Best Perks of the Volvo S90

The new Volvo S90 hits the scene with all sorts of high-tech niceties. Though the vehicle's laundry list of electronic features and aesthetic pleasures will certainly draw the interest of the masses, the 2017 S90 really shines when it comes to safety. This vehicle is hands-down one of the safest on the road. Without further ado, let's take a look at the S90's safety features that will keep you and your loved ones out of harm’s way while traversing the streets and highways.

The S90 Reads Signs

The S90 is capable of reading the road's signs. This feature sounds like something the futuristic Knight Rider K.I.T.T. car would have. The S90 isn't exactly on K.I.T.T.'s level just yet but it is close!  The S90 read signs with combination of data mapping and roadside scanning that transfers sign data to an easily visible portion of the windshield. This technology just might save you the cost of an uber-expensive speeding ticket or help you pinpoint your highway exit.

The S90 Knows When You are Tired

No, the S90 is not a mind reader. It is more of a body sensor. This vehicle is equipped with Driver Alert Control that monitors your steering-wheel inputs in relation to the road. This monitoring allows the vehicle to determine if you are overly fatigued. If the S90 determines you are too tired to drive safely, its Rest Stop guidance feature kicks in to provide a safe place where you can pull over for a rest.

The S90 Knows When to Brake

This vehicle is engineered to exercise prudent judgment in emergency situations when immediate braking is (or is not) required. The S90 is designed with a Large Animal Detection technology that no other vehicle has. This system computes images of the vehicle's surroundings along with an array of factors such as the vehicle's speed. The end result is the vehicle being able to gauge the size of the animal that has crossed your path. The vehicle will brake if it deems a quick stop to be the safe. Yet sudden braking is a last resort. You'll be notified of the presence of humans and large animals as soon as they are spotted by the vehicle's cameras. If you don't stop, the vehicle will determine if a panic-stop is the safest possible action to preserve your safety, the vehicle's integrity and the well-being of whatever person or large animal has stepped in front of your vehicle.

The S90 can Steer Itself

You read that right. You have not time-traveled to 2026! The 2017 Volvo S90 really is capable of steering itself. It might even be better at steering than you! Volvo claims the S90's autonomous-driving technology is the first of its kind. If you'd like the vehicle computer to take over the wheel, press the toggle button that is conveniently positioned on the steering wheel. Known as “Pilot Assist”, this technology makes use of a high-resolution camera along with advanced computing systems that keep a steady speed, examine lane markings and maintain sufficient space between your vehicle and the one ahead of you.
