Congratulations to Marius Crous, who earned himself a pair of Volvo Iron Mark sunglasses worth R746. Marius gave the correct answer to the question "Is the Volvo V40 Cross Country equipped with City Safety as standard?". The answer is yes and Marius’s name was the first to be randomly chosen.

City Safety is the "umbrella" name for all of Volvo cars’ auto brake functions, the Swedish company says. The continuously enhanced collision-avoidance and mitigation technologies, which are standard, include yet another Volvo world first in the new Volvo XC90: automatic braking if the driver turns in front of an oncoming vehicle.

“City Safety is one of the most advanced standard crash prevention offers you can find in a modern car. It addresses vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in certain situations, day and night,” explains Prof. Lotta Jakobsson, Senior Technical Specialist Safety at Volvo Cars Safety Centre.

As the leader in automotive safety, Volvo Cars has been pioneering auto brake technologies since the first-generation standard brake support was introduced in 2006. Among the groundbreaking technologies is the first-generation City Safety, which was introduced as a low-speed auto brake solution in 2008.

Now, City Safety takes on an extended, all-new role as the umbrella name for all Volvo Cars’ auto brake functions. The system is active at all speeds from 4 km/h.
