Safety is at the core of the Volvo Brand. Recently new software upgrades were rolled out to ensure that Volvo brand stays at the pinnacle of automotive safety. Here at CMH Volvo Cars Bryanston our technicians were made aware of these exciting upgrades so all vehicles that came into our workshop receive these upgrades.
Introducing Intellisafe. The latest in Volvo’s innovate safety features. Many of our staff members here at CMH Volvo Cars Bryanston are advent travellers to the Kruger park. You can imagine those that own Volvos were excited when they heard about these new upgrades. These upgrades are subject to certain car models. Intellisafe upgrades come with 4 new functions:
RUN-OFF ROAD MITIGATION
Run-off road Mitigation helps prevent you from leaving the road accidentally. If you stray over the outer lane marking or the road edge, it will support you in steering the car back on the road. If needed, it will also activate the brakes to help keep you on the road. Can be added to cars of model year 2016.
BLIS™ WITH STEER ASSIST
BLIS™ alerts you when a vehicle enters your blind spot or approaches fast from behind or should you drift into the path of another vehicle,
BLIS™ can gently steer you back into your lane. Can be added to cars of model year 2016 and 2017 equipped with BLIS™ option only.
ONCOMING LANE MITIGATION
Using automatic steering assistance, this system helps you avoid collisions with oncoming vehicles. If you drift across the lane markings in the way of an oncoming vehicle, your car steers back. Can be added to cars of model year 2016 and 2017.
ONCOMING MITIGATION BY BRAKING
The Oncoming Mitigation by Braking is a Volvo safety world first that can detect if a vehicle heads straight towards your car on the wrong side of the road. If a collision can’t be avoided, it will break your car automatically to help reduce the effect of an impact. Can be added to cars of model year 2016, 2017 and 2018.
If you’re unsure about whether your vehicle qualifies for these upgrades, please give us on (011)700-4700 or visit our dealership at 277 main road.
