Some of the innovations available on your V40

  • Park Assist Pilot
    The V40 utilises ultrasonic sensors placed on all sides of the car in order to make the sometimes stressful parallel parking now an easy and straightforward process. The system will detect if a parking space is suitable and can steer itself into the available space meaning you needn’t worry about the parking.
  • Cross Traffic Alert
    Volvo understand what makes driving stressful or even potentially dangerous, so cross traffic alert will help keep you informed if anything approaches you when backing out onto a busy road.
  • Lane-keepig Aid
    The V40 can help keep you in your lane by using its forward facing cameras which detect your position on the road. The V40 will either gently keep you in your lane or alert you through the steering wheel.
  • Adaptive cruise control with full auto brake
    Adaptive cruise control (ACC) makes the Volvo V40 even more relaxing to drive. Utilising radar technology, the V40 will maintain a set distance to the car in front and if a slower vehicle is detected ahead, the V40 will automatically adapt its speed to match the slower vehicle and get you back to a safe distance. Queue Assist is a very useful system (available only with automatic transmission) as it can maintain a safe distance even in stop start traffic, allowing you to relax and letting the V40 do the work for you.
  • Road Sign Information
    Your Volvo V40 not only helps you keep within your lane and maintain safe speeds, but it will also alert you to road side information displayed on your instrument display, where information such as speed limit signs, no overtaking warnings and more, will be displayed to alert you and keep you in control.
  • Active High Beam
    Working alongside Volvos Active Bending Xenon Lights, which follow the road by swivelling the headlights allowing you to see further ahead better. Active High Beam can also be selected, meaning the V40 will automatically switch between high and low beam when on-coming traffic approaches.
  • Volvo On Call
    Volvo on Call is a fantastic system which allows you to stay connected with your car via GPS communication. The system will allow you to see dashboard readings including fuel levels, trip meter and much more all from your smartphone or mobile device. Not only does this system keep you informed about your V40, but it also means emergency assistance is available at the touch of a button should you ever need it.
