"The Volvo V40 will beat out competition flawlessly with its advanced features and sleek design coinciding with the 'Designed Around You' strategy summarizing our approach to understanding people" said Marwan Naffi, General Manager of GAA. "The car is loaded with features that buyers of modern luxury cars want, It is more than just a compact hatchback; it can be personalized to fit all needs. Most importantly, the V40's high performance will certainly impress consumers providing connectivity and mobile features which allows you to take control of the car."
Park Assist Pilot - making parallel parking easyThe new Park Assist Pilot makes parallel parking easy and precise by taking over and operating the steering wheel while the driver handles the gearbox and controls the car's speed. The parking manoeuvre is based on front, rear and side-facing ultrasonic sensors.
Lane Keeping Aid - active help to stay on courseThe new Lane Keeping Aid in the V40 helps the driver stay in the intended lane. This feature applies extra steering torque to the steering column when the car gets close to a lane marking and is about to leave the lane. The system is active at speeds between 65 km/h and 200 km/h.
Pedestrian Airbag Technology - a world firstIn order to mitigate the consequences if a collision with a pedestrian is unavoidable, the Volvo V40 features newly developed Pedestrian Airbag Technology, a world first. Sensors in the front bumper register the physical contact between the car and the pedestrian. The rear end of the bonnet is released and at the same time elevated by the deploying airbag.
The inflated airbag covers the area under the raised bonnet plus approximately one third of the windscreen area and the lower part of the A-pillar. The raised bonnet and airbag will help reduce the severity of pedestrian injuries.
