What is the Personal Car Communictor (PCC)

Within 100 metres of the V70 this system on the key fob will notify the driver if the car is locked, unlocked, if the alarm was activated and if a heartbeat has been detected inside the vehicle at the press of a button. Beyond 100 meters, the driver can check if the “lock” button was pressed when the wagon was left.

What is the Collision Avoidance System (CAS)

This system utilizes long-range radar and a short-range digital camera to deliver a Collision Warning system with Auto Brake that will visually and audibly warn the driver of a potential collision and autonomously apply up to 50 per cent braking power should a collision become imminent. CAS also adds Lane Departure Warning, Distance Alert to help maintain a safe distance to the vehicle in front and Driver Alert to evaluate the driver’s control of the vehicle and warn them if there is increased likelihood they are asleep or distracted.

More About the Volvo Line-Up You Might Not Know

The V70’s body structure as well as the rest of the Volvo line-up, is composed of four kinds of steel to distribute collision energy around the passenger cabin. The interior is equipped with a collapsible steering column, a full complement of airbags and the company’s unique Volvo Whiplash Protection System to reduce the likelihood of soft tissue injuries in a rear-end collision.  The V70 is also equipped with braking aids such as ABS and Electronic Brake Force Distribution. Security features include approach and “Home Safe” lighting to illuminate the area around and in front of the vehicle to bring attention to any hazards, such as ice.
