Introduction
Owner’s Manual
A good way of getting to know your new car
is to read the owner’s manual, ideally before
your first journey. This will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with new
functions, to see how best to handle the car
in different situations, and to make the best
use of all the car’s features. Please pay
attention to the safety instructions contained
in the manual:
WARNING!
"Warning!" texts indicate where there is a
risk of personal injury in the event of the
instructions not being followed.
IMPORTANT!
"Important!" texts indicate a risk of
damage to the car in the event of the
instructions not being followed.
The equipment described in the owner’s
manual is not present in all models. In
addition to standard equipment, this manual
also describes options (factory fitted
equipment) and certain accessories (extra
equipment).

Volvo Car Corporation and the environment
Volvo Cars’ environmental
philosophy
Environmental care, safety and quality are the
three core values which influence all operations of the Volvo Car Corporation. We also
believe that our customers share our consideration for the environment.
Your Volvo complies with strict international
environmental standards and is also
manufactured in one of the cleanest and most
resource-efficient plants in the world. Volvo
Car Corporation has global certification to
the ISO 14001 environmental standard,
which leads to continuous improvements
within the area of the environment.
EPI (Environmental Product Information)
environmental product decla rations are
supplied for all Volvo models. You can now
compare the environmental impact of
different models and engines.

Fuel consumption
Volvo cars have competitive fuel
consumption in each of their respective
classes. Lower fuel consumption generally
results in lower emission of the greenhouse
gas, carbon dioxide.
Efficient emission control
Your Volvo is manufactured following the
concept Clean inside and out – a concept
that encompasses a clean interior
environment as well as highly efficient
emission control. In many cases the exhaust
emissions are well below the applicable
standards.
In addition there is a special radiator coating,
PremAir®1, which can convert hazardous
ground-level ozone into pure oxygen.
It is possible for the driver to influence fuel
consumption, see page 4.

Volvo Car Corporation and the environment
Clean air in the passenger
compartment
A sophisticated air cleaning system, IAQS1
(Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the
air in the passenger compartment is cleaner
than the air outside.
The system consists of an electronic sensor
and a carbon filter. The air intake is closed if
the level of reducing gases and oxidising
gases, e.g. carbon monoxide, becomes too
high, for example in heavy town traffic,
queues and tunnels. The entry of nitrous
oxides, ground-level ozone and hydrocarbons
is prevented by the carbon filter.
Textile standard
The interior of a Volvo is designed to be
healthy and safe - even for people with
contact allergies and for asthma sufferers.
Extreme attention has been given to choosing
environmentally-compatible materials. This
means that they also fulfil the requirements of
the Öko-Tex 100 ecological standard - a
major advance towards a healthier cabin
environment.
Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts,
carpets, thread and fabrics for example. Even
the leather upholstery undergoes chromium1.

free tanning with natural plant substances
and meets the requirements.
Volvo workshops and the
environment
Regular maintenance carried out by an
authorised Volvo workshop creates the
conditions for long service life and low fuel
consumption, and contributes to a cleaner
environment. When Volvo’s workshops are
entrusted with the repair and maintenance of
the car, it becomes part of our system. We
make clear environmental demands
regarding the way in which workshops are
designed in order to prevent spills and
discharges into the environment, and this
includes the thorough collection and sorting
of the gaseous, liquid and solid waste that
arises in our workshops. Our workshop staff
have the knowledge and the tools required to
guarantee good environmental care.
Reducing environmental impact
You can help reduce environmental impact,
for example, by purchasing eco-labelled car
care products and by servicing and
maintaining the car according to the instructions in the owner’s manual.
The following hints will help you to do your bit
for the environment:
• Ensure that your tyre pressures are
correct. Poorly inflated tyres increase fuel
consumption. If any of the higher tyre
pressures recommended by Volvo are
used then fuel consumption decreases.
• Since a roof rack and ski
box increase air
resistance, leading to
significantly higher fuel
consumption, they
should be removed
immediately after use.
• Remove unnecessary items from the car the greater the load the higher the fuel
consumption.
• Is your car equipped with an engine block
heater? If so, use it for a few hours before
starting from cold to reduce fuel
consumption and exhaust emissions.
• Drive gently! Avoid accelerating and
braking too hard.
Volvo Car Corporation and the environment
• Drive in the highest gear
possible. Low engine
speeds result in lower
fuel consumption.
• Ease back on the accelerator on downhill
gradients.
• Use engine braking. Take your foot off the
accelerator and change down.
• Avoid idling. Switch off the engine in
traffic queues.
• Always dispose of
environmentally
hazardous waste, such
as batteries and oils, in
an environmentally safe
manner. If uncertain,
consult an authorised Volvo workshop for
advice.
• Service your car regularly.
These hints will help you to reduce your fuel
consumption without increasing your travel
time or lessening the enjoyment of driving.
Apart from being kind to your car, you’ll be
saving money - and the Earth’s resources.

Seatbelts
Tensioning the hip strap. The belt must be
positioned low down.
Always use a seatbelt
Heavy braking can have serious consequences if the seatbelts are not used. Ensure
that all passengers use their seatbelts. Otherwise, rear seat passengers may be thrown
forward against the backs of the front seats in
a collision.
Putting on a seatbelt:
– Pull the belt out slowly and secure it by
pressing the buckle into the lock. A loud
"click" indicates that the belt has locked.
Releasing the belt:
– Press the red lock button and let the belt
retract. If the belt does not retract fully,
feed the belt in by hand so that it does not
hang lose.
The belt locks and cannot be withdrawn:
• if it is pulled out too quickly
• during braking and acceleration
• if the car leans heavily.
It is important that the belt lies against the
body so it can provide maximum protection.
Do not lean the backrest too far back. The
seatbelt is designed to protect in a normal
seating position.
Keep the following in mind:
• do not use clips or anything else that can
prevent the belt from fitting properly
• ensure the belt is not be twisted or
caught on anything
• the hip strap must be positioned low
down (not over the abdomen)
• tension the hip strap over the lap by
pulling the diagonal shoulder belt as illustrated.
WARNING!
Each belt is intended for one person only.
10
WARNING!
The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a
seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly,
this may diminish the protection provided
by the airbag in the event of a collision.
WARNING!
Never modify or repair the seatbelts yourself. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop.
If the belt has been subjected to a major
load, such as in a collision, the entire belt
must be replaced. Some of the protective
characteristics of the belt may have been
lost, even if it appears to be undamaged.
Replace the seatbelt if the belt is worn or
damaged. The new seatbelt must be typeapproved and intended for installation in
the same position as the replaced belt.
Safety
Seatbelts
NOTE! The seatbelt reminder is intended for
an adult sitting in the front seat. If a belt-fitted
child seat is fitted in the front seat, the
seatbelt reminder does not switch on.
Seatbelts and pregnancy
Seatbelt reminder
The seatbelt warning symbol in the combined
instrument panel and above the rearview
mirror comes on until the driver and front seat
passenger buckle their seatbelts. The seatbelt reminder switches off after 6 seconds if
speed is below 10 km/h. If the driver or front
seat passenger have not buckled their seatbelts, the reminder switches on again when
the speed exceeds 10 km/h and switches off
if the speed drops below 5 km/h.
The seat belt should always be worn during
pregnancy. But it is crucial that it be worn in
the correct way. The diagonal section should
wrap over the shoulder then be routed
between the breasts and to the side of the
belly. The lap section should lay flat over the
thighs and as low as possible under the belly.
It must never be allowed to ride upward.
Remove all slack from the belt and insure that
it fits close to the body without any twists.
Seatbelts and pregnancy.
As a pregnancy progresses, pregnant drivers
should adjust their seats and steering wheel
such that they can easily maintain control of
the vehicle as they drive (which means they
must be able to easily operate the foot pedals
and steering wheel). Within this context, they
should strive to position the seat with as large
a distance as possible between their belly
and the steering wheel.
If the seatbelt is released, the function reactivates when speed exceeds 10 km/h.
11
Safety
Seatbelts
Label on seatbelts with seatbelt tensioner.
Seatbelt tensioner
All the seatbelts (except the centre rear belt)
are equipped with belt tensioners. A mechanism in the belt tensioner tightens the belt
around the body in the event of a sufficiently
violent collision. This provides more effective
restraint for passengers.
12
Safety
Airbag system
As well as the warning
symbol, a message appears in
the information display. If the
warning symbol malfunctions,
the warning triangle comes on
and the message SRS
AIRBAG SERVICE URGENT
appears in the display.
Contact an authorised Volvo
workshop immediately.
WARNING!
Warning symbol in combined
instrument panel
The Airbag system1 is monitored continuously by the control module and there is a
warning lamp in the combined instrument
panel. This lamp comes on when the ignition
key is turned to position I, II or III. The
symbol goes out after about seven seconds if
the Airbag system1 is working correctly.
1.
If the warning symbol for the Airbag system remains on or comes on while driving,
it means that the Airbag system is not
functioning fully. The symbol can indicate
a fault in the seatbelt buckle, SIPS, SRS
or IC system. Contact an authorised Volvo
workshop immediately.

Safety
Airbags (SRS)
WARNING!
Never place a child in a child seat or on a
booster cushion in the front seat if the airbag (SRS) is activated1.
Never allow a child to stand or sit in front
of the front passenger seat.
No one shorter than 140 cm should sit in
the front passenger seat if the airbag
(SRS) is activated.
Failure to follow the advice given above
can endanger the life of the child.
1. For information on activated/deactivated
airbag (SRS) see page 17.
Airbag (SRS) on the driver’s side
The car has an SRS airbag (Supplemental
Restraint System) in the steering wheel to
supplement the protection afforded by the
seatbelt. This airbag is fitted into the centre of
the steering wheel. The steering wheel is
marked SRS AIRBAG.
WARNING!
The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a
seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly,
this may diminish the protection provided
by the airbag in the event of a collision.
Passenger airbag (SRS)
The passenger airbag1 is fitted behind a
panel above the glovebox. This panel is
marked SRS AIRBAG
WARNING!
To minimise the risk of injury if the airbag
deploys, passengers must sit as upright
as possible with their feet on the floor and
backs against the backrest. Seatbelts
must be secured.

SRS system, left-hand drive.
SRS system, right-hand drive.
SRS system
NOTE! The sensors react differently
depending on the course of the collision and
whether the seatbelts on the driver and
passenger side are used. It is therefore
possible that only one (or none) of the
airbags may inflate in a collision. The SRS
system senses the force of the collision on
the car and adapts accordingly so that one or
more airbags is deployed.
The airbag is equipped with a gas generator.
A sufficiently violent collision trips sensors
and ignites the gas generator, inflating the
airbag with hot gas. To cushion the impact,
the airbag deflates when compressed. When
this occurs, smoke escapes into the car. This
is completely normal. The entire process,
including inflation and deflation of the airbag,
occurs within tenths of a second.
NOTE! The airbags have a function whereby
their capacities are adapted to the collision
force to which the vehicle is subjected.

Safety
Activating/deactivating the airbag (SRS)
WARNING!
Do not allow anyone to sit in the front passenger seat if the text message in the roof
panel indicates that the airbag (SRS) is
deactivated and the airbag warning symbol is displayed in the combined instrument panel. This indicates that there has
been a severe malfunction. Contact an
authorised Volvo workshop as soon as
possible.

Safety
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
WARNING!
Do not put objects in the area between
the outside of the seat and the door panel,
since this area is required by the side
airbag.
WARNING!
Use only Volvo genuine car seat covers, or
seat covers approved by Volvo. Other
seat covers may impede the operation of
the side airbags.
Side airbag locations
Inflated side airbag
Child seats and side airbags
Side airbags – (SIPS bags)
A large proportion of the collision force is
transferred by the SIPS (Side Impact Protection System) to the floor, roof, beams, pillars,
and other structural parts of the body. The
side airbags on the driver’s and front passenger seats protect the chest area and are an
important part of the SIPS. The side airbags
are located in the front seat backrests.
WARNING!
Side airbags are a supplement to the
SIPS system. Always wear a seatbelt.
WARNING!
Repairs must only be performed by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Work on the SIPS system can cause
malfunction and result in serious personal
injury.
The side airbag does not diminish the protection provided by the car to children seated in
a child seat or on a booster cushion.
A child seat or booster cushion can be
placed on the front passenger seat provided
that the car does not have an activated1 passenger airbag.
1.
For information on activated/deactivated airbag (SRS) see page 17.
19
Safety
Side airbags (SIPS bags)
Left-hand drive.
SIPS bags
The side airbag is equipped with a gas generator. A sufficiently violent collision trips the
sensors and ignites the gas generator, inflating the side airbag. The airbag inflates
between the occupant and the door panel
and thereby cushions the initial impact while
deflating. The side airbag is only normally
deployed on the side of the collision.

Right-hand drive.
Safety
Inflatable Curtain (IC)
Properties
The inflatable curtain, IC (Inflatable Curtain),
is a supplement to the SIPS system. It is concealed in the headlining along both sides of
the roof and protects both front and rear seat
passengers. The inflatable curtain is activated by sensors in a sufficiently violent collision or if the car is at risk from overturning.
When deployed, the inflatable curtain
inflates. The inflatable curtain helps to prevent the driver and passengers from striking
their heads on the inside of the car during a
collision.
In the Volvo XC90, the inflatable curtains
have been developed to protect occupants in
the event of overturning. The inflatable curtain
also covers those travelling in the third row of
seats in the variant that seats seven.
WARNING!
Never hang or fasten anything on the roof
handles. The hook is only intended for
light outer garments (not for hard objects
such as umbrellas).
Do not screw or fit anything to the
headlining, door pillars or side panels.
This could compromise the intended
protection. Only use Volvo genuine parts
that are approved for placement in these
areas.
WARNING!
Do not load the car higher than 50 mm
under the top edge of the rear passenger
windows. Otherwise, the intended protection of the inflatable curtain, which is concealed in the headlining, may be compromised.
WARNING!
The inflatable curtain is a supplement to
the seatbelts.
Always use a seatbelt.
21
Safety
WHIPS
Protection against whiplash
injury – WHIPS
The WHIPS system (Whiplash Protection
System) consists of energy absorbing backrests and specially designed head restraints
for the front seats. The system is actuated by
a rear-end collision, where the angle and
speed of the collision, and the properties of
the colliding vehicle all have an influence.
WARNING!
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always wear your seatbelt.
22
Properties of the seat
When the WHIPS system is deployed, the
front seat backrests fall backward to alter the
position of the driver and front seat passenger. This diminishes the risk of whiplash
injury.
WARNING!
Never modify or repair the seat or WHIPS
system yourself. Contact an authorised
Volvo workshop.
WHIPS system and child seats/
booster cushions
The WHIPS system does not diminish the
protection provided by the car to children
seated in a child seat or on a booster
cushion.
Correct seating position
For the best possible protection, the driver
and front seat passenger should sit in the
centre of the seat with as little space as possible between the head and the head
restraint.
Safety
WHIPS
WARNING!
If a seat has been subjected to extreme
forces, such as due to a rear collision, the
WHIPS system must be checked by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Part of the WHIPS system’s protective
capacity may have been lost even if the
seats appear to be undamaged. Contact
an authorised Volvo workshop to have the
system checked even after a minor rearend collision.
Do not obstruct the WHIPS
system
WARNING!
Do not squeeze rigid objects between the
rear seat cushion and the front seat backrest. Make sure you do not to obstruct the
function of the WHIPS system.
WARNING!
If a rear seat backrest is folded down, the
corresponding front seat must be moved
forward so that it does not touch the
folded backrest.
23
Safety
ROPS
Volvo’s Roll-Over Protection System has
been designed to reduce the risk of the car
overturning and to provide the best possible
protection in the event of an accident.
The system consists of:
• A stabiliser system, RSC (Roll Stability
Control) that minimises the risk of
overturning during sudden evasive
manoeuvres or the like or if the car skids.
• Increased protection for the driver and
passengers through a reinforced body,
inflatable curtains and seatbelt tensioners
in all seats. See also page 12 and
page 21.
The RSC system uses a gyro sensor which
registers changes in the car’s lateral inclination angle. This information is then used to
calculate the risk for overturning. If a risk is
detected, the DSTC system is engaged,
engine speed is reduced and one or more
wheels are braked until the car returns to a
stable position.
For more information on the DSTC system,
see page 46 and page 124.
24
WARNING!
Under normal driving conditions, the RSC
system improves the car’s road safety, but
this must not be taken as a reason to
increase speed. Always follow the usual
precautions for safe driving.

object hit, the speed of the car, the angle of the collision etc. affects how the different safety systems of the car are activated.
If the airbags have been deployed, the following is recommended:
• Have the car transported to an authorised
Volvo workshop. Do not drive with
deployed airbags.
• Have an authorised Volvo workshop
replace components in the car’s safety
system.
• Always contact a doctor.
NOTE! The SRS, SIPS, IC and belt tensioner
systems are deployed only once during a
collision.
WARNING!
The Airbag control unit is located in the
centre console. If the centre console is
drenched with water or other liquid, disconnect the battery cables. Do not
attempt to start the car since the airbags
may deploy. Have the car transported to
an authorised Volvo workshop.
WARNING!
Never drive with deployed airbags. They
can make steering difficult. Other safety
systems may also be damaged. The
smoke and dust created when the airbags
are deployed can cause skin and eye irritation after intensive exposure. In case of
irritation, wash with cold water. The rapid

Child safety
Check that:
• the seatbelt is locked
• the seatbelt is in contact with the child’s
body and is not slack or twisted, and that
the belt is positioned correctly across the
shoulder
• the lap belt is low over the pelvis for
optimum protection
• the belt does not touch the child’s throat
or lie below the shoulder
• carefully adjust the position of the head
restraint to suit the child
Integrated booster cushions
(option in cars seating five,
standard in cars seating seven)
Volvo’s integrated booster cushion for the
outer rear seats is specially designed to provide optimum safety for children. Combined
with the regular seatbelts, the booster cushion is approved for children weighing
between 15 and 36 kg.
32
Raising the booster cushion
– Pull that handle to raise the booster
cushion (1).
– Grasp the cushion with both hands and
push it backwards (2).
– Push until it locks in place (3).
WARNING!
The booster cushion must be in the locked
position before the child is placed there.
WARNING!
Repair or replacement should only be performed by an authorised Volvo workshop.
Do not make any modifications or additions to the booster cushion.
If an integrated booster cushion has been
subjected to a major load, such as in
conjunction with a collision, the entire
booster cushion must be replaced. Even if
the booster cushion appears to be
undamaged, it may not afford the same
level of protection. The booster cushion
must also be replaced if it is heavily worn.
Safety
Child safety
Lowering the booster cushion

Safety
Child safety
Fitting a child seat
Volvo has child safety products that are
designed for and tested by Volvo.
WARNING!
Support cushions/child seats with steel
frames or another design that can lie
against the seatbelt release button must
not be used because they can cause accidental release of the seatbelt.
Do not allow the top of the child seat to
rest against the windscreen.
When using other products that are available
on the market, it is important to read the fitting
instructions included with the product.
• Do not attach the straps for the child seat
to the horizontal adjustment bar, springs,
rails or beams under the seat. Sharp
edges can damage the straps.
• Allow the back of the child seat to rest
against the dashboard. This applies to
cars without a passenger airbag, or
where the airbag is deactivated.
34
WARNING!
Never place the child seat in the front seat
if the car is equipped with an activated
front passenger airbag. If problems arise
when fitting child safety products, contact
the manufacturer for clearer instructions.
ISOFIX fixture system for child
seats (option)
The outer rear seats have ISOFIX attachment
points. Contact a Volvo dealer for further
information on child safety equipment.

Extra locking function in seatbelt
(ALR/ELR1)
The seatbelt in the centre of the second row
of seats has an extra locking function
(ALR/ELR) to help hold the belt taunt in order
to facilitate child seat installation.
When installing a child seat with the help of
the seatbelt:
• Secure the seatbelt in the child seat
following the instructions of the child seat
manufacturer.
• Pull out the entire seatbelt.
• Lock the belt by inserting the locking tab
in the buckle. A loud "click" indicates that
the belt is locked.
• Allow the seatbelt mechanism to retract
the belt while stretching it around the
child seat. A mechanical sound will be
audible from the seatbelt. This is normal.
This function is automatically deactivated
when the seatbelt is released from the buckle
and retracts back to its starting position.
If there are any problems with installation of
child safety products, contact the manufacturer for clearer installation instructions.

or repair of your climate control system.
Entrust checks and repairs only to trained
personnel.
Refrigerant
The air conditioning system contains R134a
refrigerant. This refrigerant contains no
chlorine, which means that it is harmless to
the ozone layer. The system must only be
charged with R134a refrigerant. Have an
authorised Volvo workshop carry out this
work.

The sun sensor is on the upper portion of the
dashboard. Remember not to cover it. Do not
cover the passenger compartment temperature sensor on the climate control panel.
Side windows and sunroof
To ensure that the air conditioning works
satisfactorily, close all side windows and the
sunroof (if fitted).
Acceleration
The air conditioning system switches off
temporarily at full acceleration. You may feel
a temporary rise in temperature.
Condensation
In warm weather, condensation from the air
conditioning system may drip under the car.
This is normal.
Fuel economy
With ECC, the air conditioning system is
controlled automatically and is used just
enough to cool the passenger compartment
and to adequately dehumidify the incoming
air. This provides better fuel economy
compared to conventional systems where the
air conditioning cools the air to just above
freezing point.

Interior
Cargo compartment
cargo, bear in mind that improperly secured
or incorrectly loaded objects in the cargo
compartment could be thrown forward with
great speed and force in the event of a
collision or sudden braking, causing serious
injuries.
Bear in mind that if an object weighing 20 kg
is subjected to a head-on collision at a speed
of 50 km/h, its impact weight will be
1000 kg.
Think about the following when loading:
General
Payload depends on the car’s total kerb
weight, including any accessories that are
mounted. Kerb weight includes the driver, the
weight of the fuel tank when filled to 90 %
and various fluids, such as washer fluid and
coolant. Mounted accessories, i.e. towbar,
load carriers, space box, etc., are included in
the kerb weight.
The payload of the car is reduced by the
number of passengers and their weight.
Loading the cargo compartment
The seatbelts and airbags provide the driver
and passengers substantial protection,
especially in head-on collisions. However,
you must also remember to protect yourself
against injuries from behind. When loading
• Do not load extremely heavy objects up
by the front seats. The lowered backrest
will be pressed down unnecessarily hard.
• Place the load by the backrest.
• Position heavy loads as low as possible.
• Position wide loads on each side of the
division in the backrest.
• Cover sharp edges with something soft.
• Secure the load with retaining straps
using the car’s lashing eyes.
• Never load above the backrest without a
load net.
WARNING!
Never load cargo above the backrests! If
you do so, the load could be thrown
forward in the event of sudden braking or
a collision and severely injure you or your
passengers. Remember to always secure
(bind) the load properly.
If the rear seat backrest is lowered, do not
load the car higher than 50 mm under the
top edge of the rear passenger windows.
Leave 10 cm of free space from the
windows inwards. Otherwise, the
intended protection of the inflatable
curtain, which is hidden in the headlining,
may be compromised.
Always secure the load. During heavy
braking the load may otherwise shift,
causing personal injury.
Turn off the engine and apply the parking
brake when loading or unloading long
objects! You may accidentally knock the
gear lever or gear selector with the load
and cause a gear to engage and the car to
move off.
WARNING!
The driving characteristics of the car
change based on the car’s kerb weight
and how heavily it is loaded.

General
Economical driving
Economical driving results from driving gently
with anticipation and adapting your driving
style and speed to the situation.
Keep in mind the following:
• Drive the engine to operating temperature
as soon as possible! That is to say: do not
let the engine idle, but drive with a light
load as soon as you can.
• A cold engine consumes more fuel than a
warm one.
• Avoid driving short distances where the
engine never has time to reach operating
temperature.
• Drive gently! Avoid unnecessary quick
accelerations and heavy braking.
• Do not drive with unnecessary, heavy
loads in the car.
• Do not use winter tyres when the roads
are clear and dry.
• Remove the load carrier when it is not in
use.
• Do not open side windows unnecessarily.
Your new car – slippery road
surfaces
Driving on a slippery road may feel different
depending on whether you choose a car with
a manual or an automatic gearbox. Practice
112
skid driving under controlled conditions so
that you know how your new car reacts.
Driving on rough roads
The Volvo XC90 is primarily designed for
driving on main roads, but also has good
handling properties on uneven or rough
roads. Keep the following in mind in order to
preserve the service life of your car:
• Drive slowly on rough roads so you do not
damage the car’s underbody.
• If the ground is loose or is made up of dry
sand or snow, it is always best to keep
the car moving at all times and avoid
shifting. Do not stop the car.
• If the road is extremely steep and there is
a risk of overturning, never try to turn the
car around. Reverse back down. Do not
drive diagonally across an incline. Drive in
the direction of the incline.
NOTE! Avoid driving on steep slopes if the
fuel level is low. The catalytic converter could
be damaged if the engine does not receive
enough fuel. When driving on extremely
steep slopes, make sure the tank is more than
half full to avoid the risk of breakdown.
Wading
The car can be driven through water with a
depth of no more than 48 cm.
NOTE! In greater depths, water can enter the
differentials and the transmission. This
reduces the lubricating ability of the oil and
shortens the service life of the systems.
When driving through shallow water,
maintain a low speed and do not stop the car.
Once you have passed through the water,
apply a light pressure to the brake pedal and
check brake function. Water, mud and the
like can dampen brake linings, resulting in
delayed braking action.
Clean the electric contacts of the electric
engine heater and trailer coupling after
driving in water and mud.
NOTE! Do not let the car stand with water
over the sills for any long period of time. This
could cause electrical malfunctions.
Starting and driving
General
Do not overload the battery
The electrical functions in the car load the
battery to varying degrees. Avoid having the
ignition key in position II when the engine is
turned off. Use position I instead, as less
power is used. The 12 volt outlet in the cargo
area supplies power even when the ignition
key is removed.
Examples of functions that use a lot of power:
• ventilation fan
• windscreen wipers
• audio system
• parking lights.
Also take note of different accessories that
load the electrical system. Do not use
functions the consume a lot of current when
the engine is switched off. A text is shown on
the display in the combined instrument panel
if battery voltage is low and remains until the
engine has started. The energy economy
function shuts down certain functions or
reduces the load on the battery, e.g. by
lowering ventilation fan speed and switching
off the audio system.
Charge the battery by starting the engine.
Do not allow the engine and
cooling system to overheat
Under certain conditions, e.g. when driving in
hilly terrain or with a heavy load, especially in
warm weather, there is a risk of the engine
and cooling system overheating.
• Distribute the air between the windscreen
and floor while running the fan at high
speed.
To avoid the cooling system overheating
• Drive at low speeds if driving with a trailer
up a long incline.
• Do not turn the engine off immediately
you stop, if the car has been driven hard.
• Remove any auxiliary lamps from in front
of the grille if driving in extreme high
temperatures.
To avoid the engine overheating
Do not exceed engine speeds of 4500 rpm
(diesel engine: 3500 rpm) if driving with a
trailer or caravan in hilly terrain. The oil
temperature can become too high.
Do not drive with the tailgate
open
If you drive with the tailgate open, some of the
exhaust gases and poisonous carbon
monoxide could be sucked into the car
through the cargo area. If you must drive a
short distance with the tailgate open,
proceed as follows:
• Close all windows.
113
Starting and driving
Refuelling
After refuelling, replace the fuel cap and turn
until one or more clicks is heard.
WARNING!
Never carry an activated mobile phone
when refuelling the ring signal could
cause spark build-up and ignite petrol
fumes, leading to fire and injury.
Refuelling with petrol
The fuel cap is inside the fuel filler flap on the
right-hand rear wing and hangs up on the
inside of the fuel filler flap.
Opening the fuel filler flap
The fuel filler flap can be opened when the
car is unlocked.
NOTE! The filler flap remains unlocked for ten
minutes after the car is locked. It then locks
automatically.
Fuel filler flap
There may be overpressure in the tank if
outdoor temperatures are high. Open the cap
slowly. Do not overfill the fuel tank. Stop
refuelling when the pump cuts out for the first
time! If the tank is overfilled fuel may overflow
at high temperatures!
114
NOTE! Do not add cleaning additives unless
specifically recommended by a Volvo
workshop.
IMPORTANT!
Petrol-powered cars must always be
refuelled with unleaded petrol so as not
to damage the catalytic converter.
Refuelling with diesel
At low temperatures, paraffin can precipitate
out of diesel fuel (–5 °C - –40 °C). This can
cause problems when starting. Make sure
you use a special winter grade fuel during
cold periods.
Starting and driving
Starting the car
Starting the engine (Petrol)
– Depress the parking brake.
– Automatic gearbox: Gear selector in
position P or N.
Manual gearbox: Gear lever in neutral and
the clutch pedal completely depressed.
This is especially important in severe cold.
NOTE! The master key blade must be fully
extended (as illustrated on page 100) when
starting the car. Otherwise there is a risk that
the immobiliser function will prevent the car
from starting.
– Turn the ignition key to start position. If
the engine does not start within 5–
10 seconds, release the key (see also
"Autostart", page 116) and try again.
NOTE! The idling speed can be noticeably
higher than normal for certain engine types
during cold starting. This is so that the
emissions system can reach normal
operating temperature as quickly as possible,
which minimises exhaust emissions and
protects the environment.
Starting the engine (Diesel)
– Depress the parking brake.
– Automatic gearbox: Gear selector in
position P or N.
Manual gearbox: Gear lever in neutral and
the clutch pedal completely depressed.
This is especially important in severe cold.
NOTE! The master key blade must be fully
extended (as illustrated on page 100) when
starting the car. Otherwise there is a risk that
the immobiliser function will prevent the car
from starting.
Winter driving
If the car is frequently driven short distances
in cold weather then the engine does not
reach normal operating temperature. This
means that regeneration of the diesel particle
filter does not take place and the filter is not
emptied.
– Turn the ignition key to the driving
position. A symbol in the combined
instrument panel will come on indicating
that engine preheating is activated. Turn
the key to the start position when the
indicator symbol goes out.
When the filter has become approx. 80 % full
of particles then a yellow warning triangle in
the dashboard dis play is shown along with
the warning text SOOT FILTER FULL SEE
MANUAL.
Diesel particle filter
(certain models)
Certain diesel cars are equipped with a
particle filter which results in additionally
effective emission control. When the engine
reaches its normal operating temperature
(the engine is warm) a so-called "regeneration" of the filter takes place automatically,
which means that the particles collected in
the filter are burned away and the filter is
emptied.
Regeneration takes between 10 and
15 minutes. During this time fuel
consumption may increase slightly.
Regeneration should be carried out regularly
if the car is frequently driven short distances
in cold weather in order to avoid impaired
function of the filter.
• Start regeneration of the filter by driving
the car until the engine reaches normal
operating temperature, preferably on a
main road or motorway. The car should
then be driven for approximately
20 minutes more.
• To clear the warning text when regeneration is complete, switch off the ignition,
remove the key, wait for at least three
minutes and switch the ignition on again.
• Use the parking heater (option) in cold
weather so that the engine reaches
normal operating temperature more
quickly.
115
Starting and driving
Starting the car
IMPORTANT!
If the filter fills up with particles then it can
be difficult to start the engine and the
filter will be incapable of functioning and
must then be replaced.
Ignition keys and electronic
immobiliser
The ignition key must not hang with other
keys or metal objects on the same key ring.
The electronic immobiliser could be activated
accidentally. If this happens – remove the
excess keys and restart the car.
Never rev the engine hard straight after a cold
start! If the engine does not start or misfires,
contact a Volvo workshop.
WARNING!
Never switch off the ignition (position 0
or 1) or remove the ignition key when the
vehicle is in motion. This could activate the
steering wheel lock, making the car
impossible to steer.
Always remove the ignition key from the
ignition switch before leaving the vehicle –
especially if children remain in the car.

there is tension in the steering wheel lock.
Turn the wheel back and forth to make it
easier to turn the key.
Autostart (V8 AWD)
Using the autostart function, the ignition key
does not need to be kept in the start position
(position III) until the engine has started. Turn
the ignition key to the start position and
release it. The starter motor then operates
automatically (up to ten seconds) until the
engine has started.
NOTE! Make sure the steering wheel locks
when you leave the car. This reduces the risk
of theft.

Manual gearbox
Gear positions
Depress the clutch pedal fully with each gear
change. Remove your foot from the clutch
pedal between gear changes! Follow the
appropriate shifting pattern.
Use 6th gear as often as possible for the best
possible fuel economy.
Reverse gear inhibitor
Only engage reverse gear when the car is
stationary.
117
Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
Cold start
When starting in low temperatures, the gear
changes can sometimes feel hard. This is due
to the gearbox oil’s viscosity at low temperatures. To minimise engine emissions, the
gearbox shifts up later than normal when the
engine is started at low temperatures.
Turbo engine
When the engine is cold, the transmission
shifts gears at higher revs. This allows the
catalytic converter to reach normal operating
temperature more quickly, with less exhaust
emissions.
Adaptive system
The gearbox is controlled by what is known
as an adaptive system. The system continually monitors how the gearbox is behaving
and senses every gear change for optimum
change quality.
Lock-up function
The gears have a lock-up function (locked
gears), which gives better engine braking and
lower fuel consumption.
Safety systems
Cars with an automatic gearbox have special
safety systems:
Keylock
To remove the ignition key, the gear selector
must be in the P position. The key is locked in
all other positions.
Parking position (P position)
Stationary car with engine running:
– Hold your foot on the brake pedal when
moving the gear selector to another
position.
Electric gear inhibitor – Shiftlock
Parking position (P position)
To be able to move the gear selector from the
P position to other gear positions, the ignition
key must be in position I or II and the brake
pedal must be depressed.
Kick-down
When the accelerator is pressed all the way
to the floor, beyond the position normally
regarded as full acceleration, a lower gear is
immediately engaged. This is known as kickdown.
When maximum speed for this gear is
reached, or if the accelerator is released from
the kick-down position, the gearbox automatically changes up.
Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
To prevent overrevving, the gearbox control
program has a protective downshift inhibitor.
118
The kick-down function cannot be used in
the manual positions. Return to
automatic position D.
Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox
P – Park
N – Neutral
Gear selector inhibitor
Select this position when you wish to start
the engine or park the car.
N is the neutral position. The engine can be
started but no gear is engaged. Apply the
parking brake when the car is stationary with
the gear selector in N.
The gear selector can always be moved freely
between N and D1. Other positions are
locked with a catch that is released with the
inhibitor button on the gear selector.
D – Drive
With one press on the inhibitor button you
can move the lever forwards or backwards
between the gear positions, N, R and P.
The car should be stationary when you select
P!
In P, the gearbox is mechanically blocked.
Apply the parking brake when parking.
R – Reverse
The car should be stationary when you
select R.
D is the normal driving position. The car
automatically shifts between the different
gears of the gearbox based on the level of
acceleration and speed. The car should be
stationary when selecting D from position R.

W – Winter
Manual positions
To move from the automatic driving
position D to a manual position, move the
gear selector to the left. To go from
position MAN to the automatic driving
position D, move the selector to the right to
position D.
The W button by the gear
selector engages and disengages the winter
programme W. The symbol
W is shown in the combined
instrument panel when the
winter programme is activated.
On the 4-speed automatic gearbox, gears 3
and 41 have the Lock-up function (locked
gears), which provides better engine braking
and lower fuel consumption.
The winter programme starts the gearbox in
3rd gear in order to make it easier to pull off
on slippery roads. When the winter
programme is engaged, lower gears are
activated only by kick-down.
While driving
Manual gear positions can be selected at
anytime during your trip. The engaged gear is
locked until you select another gear. The car
will only shift if you slow to a very low speed.
If you move the gear selector to minus (–), the
car downshifts automatically one gear at a
time while engine braking. If you move the
gear selector to plus (+), the car upshifts one
gear at a time.
Third gear is the highest gear that can be
used when starting.
1.
120
5th gear also has lock-up on the
5-speed automatic gearbox.
2nd and 6th gear also have lock-up
on the 6-speed automatic gearbox.
The W programme can only be selected in
position D.
Starting and driving
All-wheel drive
All-wheel drive – AWD
All-wheel drive is always engaged.
All-wheel drive means that all four road
wheels are driven at the same time. Power is
automatically distributed between front and
rear wheels. An electronically controlled
clutch system distributes the power to the
pair of wheels that grips best. This provides
the best traction and prevents wheel spin.
Under normal driving conditions, the majority
of power is transmitted to the front wheels.
All-wheel drive improves driving safety in rain,
snow and icy conditions.
121
Starting and driving
Brake system
Brake servo
If the car is rolling or is being towed with the
engine turned off, the brake pedal must be
pressed about five times harder than when
the engine is running. If the brake pedal is
pressed when the engine is started, you will
feel the pedal drop. This is normal and due to
the brake servo becoming active. This may be
more noticeable if the car has emergency
brake assistance (EBA).
NOTE! If braking with the engine switched
off, press the brake pedal sharply once, not
repeatedly.
WARNING!
The brake servo only works when the
engine is running.
Brake circuits
This symbol lights if a brake circuit is
not working.
If a fault should occur in one of the
circuits, it is still possible to brake the car. The
brake pedal will travel further and may feel
softer than normal. Harder pressure on the
pedal is needed to produce the normal
braking effect.
122
Dampness can affect braking
characteristics
Brake components become wet when the car
is driven in heavy rain, through pools of water
or when the car is washed. This may alter
brake pad friction characteristics so that
there is a delay before braking effect is
noticed.
using engine braking more efficiently and
requires the foot brake for only brief periods.
Bear in mind that driving with a trailer puts an
additional load on the car’s brakes.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
The anti-lock braking system (ABS)
prevents the wheels from locking up
under braking.
This means the ability to steer is
maintained and it is easier to swerve to avoid
a hazard, for example.
Press the brake pedal lightly from time to time
if driving for long stretches in rain or slushy
snow, as well as after setting off in very damp
or cold weather. This warms up the braking
surfaces and dries off any water. It is also
recommended to do this before parking the
car for a long period in such weather conditions.
After the engine has been started, the ABS
will perform a brief self-test at a speed of
about 20 km/h. This can be felt and heard as
pulses in the brake pedal.
If the brakes are used heavily
To get the most out of the ABS:
When driving in the Alps or other roads with
similar characteristics, the car’s brakes are
heavily loaded even if the brake pedal is not
being depressed especially hard.
Because speed is often low, the brakes are
not cooled as effectively as when driving on
flat roads at higher speed.
So as not to overload the brakes, shift down
when driving downhill instead of using the
foot brake. Use the same gear driving
downhill as you would use driving uphill. This
• Press brake pedal with full force. Pulses
will be felt.
• Steer the car in the direction of travel. Do
not release the pressure on the pedal.
Practice braking with the ABS system in a
traffic-free area and in different weather
conditions.
The ABS symbol lights up: for about
two seconds when the car is started if the
ABS is disengaged due to a fault.
Starting and driving
Brake system
Electronic brake force distribution
system – EBD
The Electronic Brakeforce Distribution
system (EBD) is an integrated part of the
ABS system. The EBD system controls the
brake force to the rear wheels so that the
best possible braking force is always
available. Pulses will be heard and felt
through the brake pedal when the system
regulates brake force.
Emergency brake assistance – EBA
(Emergency brake assistance) In case of
sudden braking, full-strength braking is
provided instantaneously. The EBA function
senses when heavy braking is underway by
registering how quickly the brake pedal is
depressed. Continue braking without easing
off on the brake pedal. The function is
suspended when the pressure on the brake
pedal eases. This function is always active
and cannot be disengaged.
WARNING!
If the BRAKE and ABS warning symbols
are lit at the same time, a fault may have
occurred in the brake system. If the level in
the brake fluid reservoir is normal, drive
carefully to the nearest authorised Volvo
workshop to have the brake system
checked.
If the brake fluid is under the MIN level in
the brake fluid reservoir, do not drive
further before topping up the brake fluid.
The reason for the loss of brake fluid must
be investigated.

Starting and driving
Stability system
When the stability system is in action, it may
seem like the car does not respond normally
to acceleration. This is because the system
detects the amount of friction on the road
surface and allows the different stability
system functions to operate.

and Traction Control) - Stability and traction
control system or DSTC (Dynamic Stability
and Traction Control) - Dynamic stability and

Traction Control – (TC)
The Traction Control function transfers
power from the spinning drive wheel to the
drive wheel which has grip by braking the
spinning drive wheel. To increase forward
traction in this situation, it may be necessary
to depress the accelerator more than usual. A
pulsing sound is heard when Traction Control
is working. This is completely normal. The TC
function is most active at low speeds. It
cannot be deactivated.
124
Spin Control (SC)
The Stability Control function prevents the
drive wheels from slipping during acceleration. This improves road safety on slippery
surfaces. Under certain conditions, such as
when driving with snow chains or in deep
snow or sand, it may be beneficial to
deactivate the SC function to increase
traction. This is done with the STC/DSTC
button.
Active Yaw Control (AYC)
The Active Yaw Control function automatically brakes one or more wheels to stabilise
the car in the event of a skid. If the brake
pedal were to be depressed in this situation,
it would feel more rigid than usual and a
pulsing sound would be heard.
The AYC function is always active and cannot
be deactivated.

If the car must be towed
• Unlock the steering wheel lock so that the
car can be steered.
• Keep in mind the highest legally permissible speed.
• Bear in mind that the brake and power
steering servos do not function when the
engine is off. Approx. five times more
pressure must be exerted on the brake
pedal and steering requires much more
force than usual.
• Drive gently. Keep the towline taut to
avoid unnecessary jerking.
For automatic gearboxes
• The gear selector should be in position N.
• The maximum permissible speed when
towing a car with automatic gearbox is

Connect the clamp to the contact point
under a small black cover which has a
plus sign on it. The cover is integrated
with the fuse box cover.
Connect one clamp of the black cable to
the negative terminal of the booster
battery (3–).
Connect the other clamp of the black
cable to the lifting eye on your car’s
engine (4–).
Start the engine of the "donor car". Let
the engine run a few minutes at a speed
slightly higher than idle 1500 rpm.
Start the engine of the car with the flat
battery.
Remove the clamps in reverse order.
NOTE! Do not remove the clamps during the
start attempt; risk of spark build-up.
WARNING!
The battery can generate oxyhydrogen
gas, which is highly explosive. One spark,
which can be generated if you connect the
jump leads incorrectly, is sufficient to
make the battery explode.
The battery contains sulphuric acid, which
can cause serious burns. If the acid
comes into contact with eyes, skin or
clothing, flush with large quantities of
water. If acid splashes into the eyes, seek
medical attention immediately.
To avoid the risk of explosion, we recommend
you do exactly as follows.
– Turn the ignition key to position 0.
– Ensure that the booster battery has
12 volt current.
– If the booster battery is in another car,
stop the engine of that car and make sure
the cars are not touching.
– Connect the red cable to the positive
terminal (1+) of the booster battery and

Starting and driving
Driving with a trailer
The load capacity is affected by extra accessories mounted on the car, such as a towbar,
the load on the towball (75 kg with trailer
hitched), load carriers and space box, as well
as the passengers’ combined weight. The
load capacity of the car is reduced by the
number of passengers and their weight.
WARNING!
The car’s driving characteristics change
depending on how heavily it is loaded and
how the load is distributed.
• The car’s towing bracket must be of an
approved type.
• If the towing bracket is fitted by Volvo, the
car is delivered with the necessary
equipment to drive with a trailer. If retrofitting, check with your Volvo dealer to
ensure that the car is fully equipped to
drive with a trailer.
• Distribute the load on the trailer so that
the weight on the towing bracket follows
the specified maximum towball load.
• Increase tyre pressure to correspond to
the pressure for full load. See the tyre
pressure table!
• Clean the towing bracket regularly and
grease the towball1 and all moving parts
to prevent unnecessary wear.
• Do not drive with a heavy trailer when
your car is brand new! Wait until it has
gone at least 1000 km.
• The brakes are loaded much more than
usual on long and steep downhill slopes.
Downshift to a lower gear and adjust your
speed.
• If the car is driven with a heavy load in a
hot climate, the engine and gearbox may
overheat. The temperature gauge in the
combined instrument panel goes into the
red zone when the car overheats. Stop
and let the engine idle a few minutes.
• If the car overheats, the air conditioning
system can be temporarily switched off.
• The gearbox reacts with a built-in
protection function if the car overheats.
See the message in the display!
• The engine is loaded more heavily than
usual when driving with a trailer.
• For reasons of safety, you should not
drive faster than 80 km/h, even if the laws
of certain countries permit higher speeds.
1.
130
Does not apply to ball hitch with
vibration damper.
• The maximum permissible trailer weight
for a trailer without brakes is 750 kg.
• Select position P (automatic gearbox) or
engage a gear (manual gearbox) when
parking with a trailer and always apply the
parking brake. If you are parking on a
steep incline, place chocks behind the
wheels.
Trailer weights
See page 237 for permitted trailer weights.
NOTE! The stated maximum permitted trailer
weights are those permitted by Volvo.
National vehicle regulations can further limit
trailer weights and speeds. Towbars can be
certified for higher towing weights than the
car can actually tow.
WARNING!
Follow the stated recommendations for
trailer weights. Otherwise, the rig may be
difficult to control during evasive
manoeuvres and braking.
Starting and driving
Driving with a trailer
Driving with trailer and automatic
gearbox
When parking on hills, you should apply the
parking brake before moving the gear
selector to the P position. When you start on
a hill, you should first put the gear selector in
the drive position and then release the
parking brake.
• Select a low gear in the gearbox when
driving on steep inclines or when driving
slowly. This prevents the gearbox from
upshifting. The gearbox oil will be cooler.
• Do not use a higher manual gear than the
engine can "handle". It is not always
economical to drive in high gears.
• Avoid driving with trailer and automatic
gearbox on inclines exceeding 15 %.
NOTE! An automatic gearbox oil cooler for
trailer towing is required for a number of
models.
Consult your Volvo dealer for information
regarding your car’s specifications if the
towbar has been installed after purchase.
Assisted starting with a trailer
Cars equipped with a V8 engine have an
integrated function which reduces the risk of
significant jerking and wheelspin when
starting with a trailer hitched to the car.
Activating
To activate, the cables from the trailer must
be connected to the trailer socket which is
fitted beside the towbar, see page 132.
Deactivating
Unplug the cables from the electrical socket.
NOTE! The function is also activated when
any other electrical equipment is plugged into
the trailer socket, and the car then accelerates more gently when pulling away.
Levelling (option on cars seating
five, standard on cars seating
seven)
If your car is equipped with automatic
levelling, the rear suspension always retains
the correct ride height regardless of load.
When the car is stationary, the rear
suspension sinks. This is completely normal.
When starting with a load, the level is
pumped up after a certain distance.

General
The load capacity is affected by extra accessories mounted on the car, such as a towbar,
the load on the towball (75 kg with trailer
hitched), load carriers and space box, as well
as the passengers’ combined weight. The
load capacity of the car is reduced by the
number of passengers and their weight.
WARNING!
The car’s driving characteristics change
depending on how heavily it is loaded and
how the load is distributed.
Load on the roof
Load carrier position (accessory)
Make sure the load carrier is placed in the
right direction on the roof rails. Load carriers
can be positioned anywhere along the roof
rails. When driving without a load, the front
load carrier should be positioned 200 mm in
front of the centre rail foot and the rear load
carrier centred between the centre and rear
rail foot (see illustration) to minimise wind
noise. The longer load carrier should be in the
front.
138
Fitting load carriers
Make sure that the load carrier sits correctly
against the roof rail. Screw on the load carrier
using its torque wrench. Tighten to the
marking on the torque wrench (corresponds
to 6 Nm). See illustration!
Starting and driving
Loading
• Distribute the load evenly over the load
carriers. Do not load lopsidedly! Place the
heaviest items at the bottom.
• Remember that the car’s centre of gravity
and driving characteristics change if you
have a load on the roof.
• Keep in mind that the car’s wind
resistance and fuel consumption increase
in proportion to the size of the load.
• Drive gently! Avoid quick accelerations,
heavy braking and taking curves hard.
WARNING!
Load carrier cover
Use the end of the torque wrench (see illustration) or the ignition key to loosen or secure
the cover. Rotate ¼ turn.
Load no more than 100 kg on the roof,
inclusive of the load carriers or space box.
The car’s centre of gravity and driving
characteristics are altered by roof loads.
Load carriers
• To avoid damaging your car and to
achieve the best level of safety when
driving, we recommend that you only use
load carriers that Volvo has specially
designed for your car.
• Check periodically that the load carriers
and load are properly secured. Lash the
load securely with retaining straps!

1. BLIS camera 2. Indicator lamp 3. BLIS
symbol
BLIS
BLIS is an information system which
indicates whether there is another vehicle
moving in the same direction in the so-called
"blind spot".
WARNING!
The system is a supplement to, and not a
replacement for, the existing rearview
mirrors. It can never replace the
awareness and responsibility of the driver.
The responsibility for changing lanes
safely rests with the driver.
"Blind spots" covered by BLIS
Distance A = approx. 9.5 m
Distance B = approx. 3 m
The system is designed to work most effectively when driving in dense traffic on multilane highways.
BLIS is based on digital camera technology.
The cameras (1) are fitted under the door
mirrors.
When a camera has detected a vehicle inside
the blind spot zone then an indicator lamp is
lit in the door panel (2). The light comes on
with a constant glow to draw the driver’s
attention to a vehicle in the blind spot.
NOTE! The lamp comes on on the side of the
car where the system has detected the
vehicle. If the car is overtaken on both sides
at the same time then both lamps come on.
BLIS also has an integrated function which
warns the driver if a fault should arise in the
system. If, for example, the system’s cameras
are obscured then the BLIS indicator lamp
flashes and a message is shown in the
dashboard display (see the table on
page 145). In such cases, check and clean
the lenses. If necessary, the system can be
switched off temporarily by pressing the BLIS
button (see page 145).
When BLIS operates
The system operates when the car is driven at
a speed above 10 km/h.
When you overtake another vehicle:
• The system reacts if you overtake another
vehicle at a speed of up to 10 km/h
faster than the other vehicle.
When you are overtaken by another
vehicle:
• The system reacts if you are overtaken by
a vehicle travelling up to 70 km/h faster
than you are travelling.
143
Starting and driving
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) – option
WARNING!
• BLIS does not work in sharp bends.
• BLIS does not work when the car is
reversing.
• A wide trailer coupled to the car can
conceal other vehicles in adjacent lanes.
It can prevent the vehicle in the screened
area from being detected by BLIS.
System function in daylight and
darkness
Daylight
In daylight the system reacts to the shape of
the surrounding vehicles. The system is
designed to detect motor vehicles such as
cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles.
Darkness
In darkness the system reacts to the
headlamps of surrounding vehicles. If its
headlamps are not switched on then the
system does not detect the vehicle. This
means for example that the system does not
react to a trailer without headlamps which is
towed behind a car or truck.
144
WARNING!
• The system does not react to bicycles
or mopeds.
• The BLIS cameras can be disrupted by
intensive light or when driving in the dark
when there are no light sources (e.g.
street lighting or other vehicles). The
system may then interpret the lack of light
as if the cameras have been blocked.
In both cases a message is shown in the
dashboard display.
When driving in such conditions the
system can be temporarily switched off
(see the information on the next page).
When the text message has faded the
system returns to full functionality.
• The BLIS cameras have the same
limitations as the human eye, i.e. they
"see" worse in heavy snowfall or thick fog
for example.
Cleaning
In order to work most effectively the BLIS
camera lenses must be clean. The lenses can
be cleaned with a soft cloth or damp sponge.
Clean the lenses carefully so that they are not
scratched.
WARNING!
• The lenses are electrically heated to
melt ice or snow. If necessary, brush
snow away from the lenses.

General
Driving characteristics and tyres
The tyres greatly affect the car’s driving
characteristics. The type of tyre, dimensions,
tyre pressure and speed rating are important
for how the car performs.
When changing tyres, ensure that tyres of the
same type and dimensions, and preferably
also the same make, are fitted to all four
wheels. Follow the recommended tyre
pressures specified on the tyre pressure
label, see page 151.
Designation of dimensions
The dimensions are stated on all car tyres.

Speed ratings
The car is approved as a whole, which means
that dimensions and speed ratings must not
differ from those specified on the vehicle’s
registration document. The only exception to
148
these conditions is winter tyres (both those
with studs and those without). If such a tyre is
chosen, the car must not be driven faster than
the speed rating of the tyre (for example,
class Q can be driven at a maximum of
160 km/h).
Remember that traffic regulations determine
how fast a car can be driven, not the speed
class of the tyres.
Note! Maximum permitted speeds indicated.

New tyres
Tyres are perishable. After a
few years they begin to
harden at the same time as
the friction capacity/characteristics gradually deteriorate. Therefore aim to get
as fresh tyres as possible when you replace
them. This is especially important with regard
to winter tyres. The week and year of
manufacture, the tyre’s DOT marking
(Department of Transportation), are stated
with four digits, for example 1502. The tyre in
the illustration was manufactured in week 15
of 2002.
Tyre age
All tyres older than six years should be
checked by an expert even if they seem
undamaged. The reason for this is that tyres
age and decompose, even if they are hardly
ever or never used. The function can
therefore be affected due to the tyre’s
constituent materials being broken down,
and it should then not be used.
This also applies to spare tyres, winter tyres
and tyres saved for future use.
Examples of external signs which indicate
that the tyre is unsuitable for use are cracks
or discolouration.
The age of the tyre can be determined by the
DOT marking, see illustration above.
Wheels and tyres
General
on the engine variant. When driving on winter
tyres, these must be fitted to all four wheels.
NOTE! Ask a Volvo dealer which rim and tyre
types are most suitable.
Studded tyres
IMPORTANT!
Use Volvo genuine snow chains or equivalent chains designed for the car model,
and tyre and rim dimensions. Consult an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Studded winter tyres should be run in gently
for 500-1000 km so the studs settle properly
into the tyre. This gives the tyre, and
especially the studs, a longer lifespan.
NOTE! The legal provisions for the use of
studded tyres vary from country to country.
Tyres with tread wear indicators
Tread wear indicators are narrow treadless
bands across the width of the tread. On the
side of the tyre are the letters TWI (tread
wear indicator). When only 1.6 mm of tread
remains, this band is clearly visible. Change
the tyres as soon as possible. Remember that
tyres with little tread depth provide very poor
grip in rain and snow.
Winter tyres
Volvo recommends winter tyres with
particular dimensions. These are stated on
the tyre pressure label, see page 151 for its
location. The tyre dimensions are dependent
Tread depth
Road conditions with ice, slush and low
temperatures place considerably higher
demands on tyres than summer conditions. It
is therefore not recommended to drive on
winter tyres that have a tread depth of less
than four millimetres.
Snow chains
Snow chains may only be used on the front
wheels. This also applies to all-wheel-drive
cars.
Never drive faster than 50 km/h with snow
chains. Avoid driving on bare ground as this
wears out both the snow chains and tyres.
Never use quick-fit snow chains as the space
between the brake disks and the wheels is
too small.
149
Wheels and tyres
General
are adversely affected. Tyres with the
greatest tread depth should always be fitted
to the rear of the car (to decrease the risk of
skidding).
Wheels should be stored lying down or
hanging up, and not standing up.
Contact an authorised Volvo workshop if you
are uncertain about tread depth.
The arrow shows the tyre’s direction of
rotation.
Summer and winter wheels
When summer and winter wheels are
changed they should be marked with which
side of the car they were mounted on, for
example L for left and R for right. Tyres with a
tread pattern which are designed to only turn
in one direction have the direction of rotation
marked with an arrow on them. The tyre
should always rotate in the same direction
throughout its lifespan. Tyres should only be
switched between front and rear positions,
never between left and right-hand sides, or
vice versa. If the tyre is mounted incorrectly,
the car’s braking characteristics and capacity
to force rain, snow and slush out of the way

Checking the tyre pressure
The tyre pressure decal on the inside of the
fuel filler flap sho ws what pressure the tyres
should have with different load and speed

Check the tyre pressure regularly. The
correct tyre pressure is shown in the tyre
pressure table. The stated tyre pressures

Driving with the wrong tyre pressure
adversely affects the car’s driving characteristics and can increase tyre wear. After just a
few kilometres of driving, the tyres warm up
and the pressure increases. Therefore air
should not be released if the pressure is
checked when the tyres are warm. However
the pressure should be increased if it is too
low.

the car should be done using workshop
jacks and axle stands under the part of the
car that is raised.
The jack screw should be kept well lubricated.
If the surface is too soft, the jack could
slide to the side and the car could fall. No
one should be in the car when the wheel
is being changed.

Changing wheels
– Remove the wheel bolts and lift off the
wheel.
Fitting the wheel
– Place the jack under the jacking point and
crank it up towards the car floor. Check
that the jack sits securely in the
anchorage. Then adjust the jack so that
its foot is positioned vertically under the
anchorage. See illustration. Do not place
wood blocks or the like under the jack as
you will not achieve full bearing capacity.
WARNING!
If the jack is positioned incorrectly, the car
could fall. Risk of injury!
– Lift the car until the wheel is free.
156
– Clean the contract surfaces on the wheel
and hub.
– Fit the wheel. Screw the wheel nuts.
– Lower the car so that the wheel cannot
rotate.
– Tighten the wheel bolts alternately and in
torque steps. Tightening torque:
140 Nm (14.0 kpm). It is important that
they are tightened to the correct torque.
Check with a torque wrench.
– Screw the jack all the way down before
returning it to the cargo compartment.
Then secure it in place.
– Check that the new tyre has the correct
amount of pressure.
NOTE! There are two different types of wheel
bolts depending on whether or not your car
has steel or aluminium rims; bolts used with
aluminium rims have a loose, rotating ring.
Bolts used with steel rims have no rotating
ring.
Make sure to use the correct type of bolt. If
you are unsure, check with the nearest Volvo
workshop.

General
Emergency puncture repair kit
Cars which do not have a spare wheel are
instead equipped with an emergency
puncture repair kit. This kit can be used to
both seal the puncture and to check and
adjust the tyre pressure. The kit consists of an
electric air compressor and an in tegrated
canister with sealing liquid.
The emergency puncture repair kit1 is only
intended to work as a temporary repair so
that the car can be driven a further 200 km
(max.) or to the nearest tyre centre. The sealing fluid has the ability to effectively seal tyres
which have punctures in the tread.
The canister with the sealing fluid should be
replaced before the best-before date has
expired or after the emergency puncture
repair kit has been used.
The best-before date is located on the front
of the compressor, see illustration on
page 161.
NOTE! The jack is optional on cars equipped
with the emergency puncture repair kit.
1.
Certain variants and markets
The emergency puncture repair kit has limited
abilities to seal tyres which have punctures in
the wall of the tyre. Do not seal tyres with the
emergency puncture repair kit if they have
larger slits, cracks or similar damage.
The emergency puncture repair kit with compressor and tools are found under the floor in
the cargo area.
12 V sockets for the compressor are located
by the centre console in the front, by the rear
seat and in the cargo area. Choose the electrical socket that is nearest the punctured
tyre.
WARNING!
The sealing fluid may cause irritation if it
comes into direct contact with skin. In the
case of contact with skin, wash away the
fluid with soap and water.
Taking out the emergency puncture
repair kit
– Fold the rear edge of the floor mat
forward.
– Lift up the emergency puncture repair kit.

Cleaning
Washing the car
Wash the car as soon as it becomes dirty.
Use car shampoo. Dirt and road salt can lead
to corrosion.
• Do not park the car in direct sunshine.
Washing a car with hot paintwork can
cause permanent paintwork damage.
Wash the car in a car wash with waste
water separator.
• Thoroughly rinse dirt off the underbody of
the car.
• Rinse the entire car to remove loose dirt.
When using a pressure washer: Make
sure that the nozzle of the pressure
washer is not closer than 30 cm to the
bodywork. Do not spray directly at the
locks.
• Wash using a sponge, car shampoo and
plenty of lukewarm water.
• If the dirt is difficult to dislodge, wash the
car using a cold degreasing agent.
• Dry the car using a clean, soft chamois or
a water scraper.
• Clean the wiper blades with a lukewarm
soap solution or car shampoo.
164
Removing bird droppings
Wash bird droppings off the paintwork as
soon as possible. Bird droppings contain
chemicals that affect and discolour paintwork
very quickly. This discolouration can only be
removed by a specialist.
WARNING!
Always have the engine cleaned by a
workshop. There is a risk of fire if the
engine is hot.
Automatic car washes
An automatic car wash is a simple and quick
way of washing the car. Bear in mind,
however, that an automatic car wash can
never replace a proper handwashing – the
brushes of a car wash cannot reach
everywhere.
IMPORTANT!
Washing by hand is gentler to the
paintwork than an automatic car wash.
The paintwork is also more sensitive
when it is new. For this reason,
handwashing is recommended during the
first few months with a new car.
WARNING!
Always test the brakes after washing the
car to ensure that moisture and corrosion
do not attack the brake pads and reduce
braking performance.
Press the brake pedal lightly from time to time
if driving for long periods in rain or slush. This
heats and dries the brake pads. You should
also do this when you begin driving in
extremely damp or cold weather.
Exterior plastic parts
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended for cleaning
exterior plastic parts. Never use strong stain
removers.

the fire retardant qualities of the upholstery.
IMPORTANT!
Sharp objects and Velcro may damage
the fabric upholstery.
Treating spots on leather upholstery
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended when cleaning
leather upholstery. Treat the leather upholstery once or twice a year using Volvo’s
leather care kit. Never use strong solvents.
Such products may damage fabric, vinyl and
leather upholstery.
Treating spots on interior plastic parts
and surfaces
A special cleaning agent, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended for cleaning interior
plastic parts and surfaces. Do not scrape or
rub spots. Never use strong stain removers.
Cleaning seatbelts
Use water and a synthetic detergent. A
special textile cleaning agent is available from
you Volvo dealer. Make sure the seatbelt is
dry before allowing it to retract.
Take care when cleaning so as not to
damage the glass surface.
Polishing and waxing
To avoid damaging glass surfaces when
removing ice, only use plastic ice scrapers.
Polish and wax the car when you feel the
paintwork is matte and when you wish to give
the paintwork extra protection, such as
before winter.
The car does not usually need polishing until
after one year. It can be waxed earlier.
Wash and dry the car thoroughly before you
begin polishing and/or waxing. Clean off
asphalt and tar stains with white spirit. More
stubborn marks can be removed with fine
rubbing paste designed for paintwork. Polish
first with a polish and then wax with liquid or
solid wax. Carefully follow the instructions on
the package. Many preparations contain both
polish and wax.
There is natural wear of the water-repellent
coating.
NOTE! Treatment with a special finishing
agent available from Volvo dealers is recommended in order to maintain the waterrepellent properties. This should be used first
after three years and then each year.
Do not polish or wax surfaces warmer than
45 °C.
Cleaning door mirrors and front
door windows with waterrepellent coating (option)
Never use products such as car wax,
degreaser or the like on mirror/ glass
surfaces as this could ruin their waterrepelling properties.

Paint is an important part of the car’s
rustproofing and should therefore be
checked regularly. Repair paintwork damage
immediately so that it does not start to rust.
The most common types of paintwork
damage that you can repair yourself are:
• minor stone chips and scratches
• damage to wing edges and door
When repairing paintwork, the car should be
clean and dry with a temperature above
15 °C.

removing any paint residue (illustration 1).
• Stir the primer thoroughly and apply using
a fine brush or matchstick (illustration 2).
• When the primer is dry, apply the surface
coat with a brush.
• Make sure the paint is well stirred and
apply several thin coats; allowing it to dry
between coats.
• The procedure is the same for scratches,
but masking tape can be used to protect
undamaged paintwork (illustration 3).
• Wait a day or so and then finish the repair
by polishing. Use a soft rag and apply
lapping paste sparingly.

Car care
Rustproofing
Rustproofing – check and repair
Your car received a thorough and complete
rustproofing at the factory. Parts of the body
are made of galvanised sheet metal. The
underbody is protected by a wear-resistant
anti-corrosion compound. Members, cavities
and enclosed sections are sprayed with a
thin, penetrating rust inhibitor.
The car’s rustproofing is maintained by doing
the following:
• Keep the car clean! Hose down the
underbody. When high pressure washing,
hold the nozzle at least 30 cm from
painted surfaces!
• Check and repair the rustproofing
regularly.
The car’s rustproofing does not normally
require treatment for approximately 8 years.
After that time, it should be treated at three
year intervals. If your car requires treatment,
consult your Volvo workshop.
Repair
If you want to repair the rustproofing yourself,
make sure the area is clean and dry. Hose
down, wash and dry the car thoroughly. Use
a rustproofing agent in a spray can or one
that is intended for brush application.
168
There are two different types of rustproofing
agents:
• thin (colourless), for visible areas
• thick, for areas prone to wear on the
underbody
Possible repair areas with these agents:
• Visible welds and sheet metal joints; thin
fluid
• Underbody; thick fluid
• Door hinges; thin fluid
• Bonnet hinges and catch - thin fluid.
Once you have finished treatment, excess
rustproofing can be wiped off with a rag
dipped in a recommended cleaning agent.
Parts of the engine and suspension strut
mountings in the engine compartment are
treated at the factory with a wax-based,
colourless rustproofing. This withstands
normal detergents without dissolving and
losing its rustproofing ability.
If you wash the engine using aromatic
solvents, such as turpentine or white spirit
(especially those that do not contain emulsifiers), the protective wax should be renewed
after washing. Your Volvo dealer handles
such waxes.

Diesel
Fuel system
Diesel engines are sensitive to contaminants.
O nly use diesel fuel from a well-known oil
company that fulfils the requirements for
recommended fuel grade as described on
page 244. Never use diesel of dubious
quality. Special diesel fuel designed for
outside temperatures around freezing point is
available from the major oil companies. This
fuel is less viscous at low temperatures and
reduces the risk of wax building up in the fuel
system.
The risk of condensation building up in the
tank is reduced if the tank is kept well filled.
Make sure that the area around the filler pipe
is clean when refuelling.
Avoid spilling onto the paintwork. Wash off
any spills with detergent and water.
Empty tank
No special procedures are required if the
tank is run dry. The fuel system is bled
automatically if the ignition switch is kept in
position II for approx. 60 seconds before the
start attempt.
IMPORTANT!
Diesel type fuels which must not be used:
special additives, Marine Diesel Fuel, fuel
oil, RME (Rape Methyl Ester), vegetable
oil.
These fuels do not fulfil the requirements
in accordance with Volvo recommendations and generate increased wear and
engine damage that is not covered by the
Volvo warranty.
Draining condensation from the
fuel filter
The fuel filter separates condensation from
the fuel. Condensation can disrupt engine
operation.
The fuel filter must be drained at the intervals
specified in the Service and Warranty
Booklet or if you suspect that the car has
been filled with contaminated fuel.

IMPORTANT!
When filling oil to top up a low oil level,
the oil being filled must be of the same
grade and viscosity as the oil in the
engine.
Checking the oil level in a new car is
especially important before the first
scheduled oil change. The Service and
Warranty Booklet specifies the odometer
readings for oil changes.
Volvo recommends checking the oil level
every 2500 km. The most accurate measurements are made on a cold engine before
starting. The measurement will be inaccurate
if taken immediately after the engine is
switched off. The dipstick will indicate that
the level is too low because the oil has not
had time to flow down into the oil sump.
Maintenance and service
Oils and fluids
– Wipe the dipstick clean before checking
the level.
– Check the oil level using the dipstick. The
oil level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks.
– If the level is close to the MIN mark, start
by topping up with 0.5 litres of oil. Top up
until the oil level is nearer the MAX than
the MIN mark on the dipstick. See
page 240 for capacities.
IMPORTANT!
The oil level must be within the area marked
on the dipstick
Checking the oil in a cold engine:
– Wipe the dipstick clean before checking

See capacities on page 242.
Check the coolant regularly
The level should lie between the MIN and
MAX marks on the expansion tank. If the
system is not filled sufficiently, high local
temperatures could occur, causing a risk of
176
Always use coolant with anti-corrosion
agent as recommended by Volvo. New
cars are filled with coolant that can
withstand temperatures down to
approximately –35 °C.
WARNING!
The coolant may be very hot. If the coolant
requires topping up when the engine is at
operating temperature, unscrew the
expansion tank cap slowly to gently
release the overpressure.
IMPORTANT!
The engine must only be run with a wellfilled cooling system. High temperatures
can occur, causing a risk of damage
(cracks) to the cylinder head.
Maintenance and service
Oils and fluids
NOTE! The fluid should be changed annually
for cars driven in conditions requiring hard,
frequent braking, such as driving in
mountains or tropical climates with high
humidity.
WARNING!
If the brake fluid is under the MIN level in
the brake fluid reservoir, do not drive
further before topping up the brake fluid.
The reason for the loss of brake fluid must
be investigated.
Checking and topping up the
brake and clutch fluid
Checking and topping up the
power steering fluid
The brake and clutch fluid have a common
reservoir1. The fluid level must be between
the MIN and MAX marks. Check the level
regularly. Change the brake fluid every other
year or at every other regular service.
Check the level at every service. It is not
necessary to change the fluid. The level
should lie between the ADD and FULL marks.
See the capacities and recommended brake
fluid grade on page 242.
NOTE! If a fault should arise in the power
steering system or if the car is without power
and must be towed, it can still be steered.
However the steering will be much heavier
than normal and it will require more effort to
turn the wheel.

Battery
• Check all cells. Use a screwdriver to
remove the caps. Each cell has its own
maximum level mark.
• If necessary, top up with distilled water to
the battery’s maximum mark.
• Never fill above the maximum mark (A).
Store the battery out of the
reach of children.
The battery contains
corrosive acid.
IMPORTANT!
Always use distilled or deionised water
(battery water).
Battery care
The function and life of the battery is affected
by number of starts, number of times
discharged, driving style, driving conditions,
climate conditions, etc.
Repeated use of the parking heater and
similar large power consumers combined
with short driving distances could lead to a
discharged battery and thereby problems
starting.
For the battery to function satisfactorily,
consider the following:
– Tighten the caps properly.
NOTE! The life of the battery is shortened if
it becomes discharged repeatedly.
Symbols on the battery
Avoid sparks and naked
flames.
Risk of explosion.
These symbols displayed on the battery.
Use protective goggles.

Draining oxyhydrogen gas
Changing the battery
Do as follows when installing the battery:
The battery can develop oxyhydrogen, which
is highly explosive. An evacuation hose draws
any oxyhydrogen gas from around the battery
out of the car and prevents gas from accumulating in the passenger and cargo compartments. If you must change the battery for
some reason, it is imperative that the evacuation hose is connected to the new battery
and that it is routed to the outlet in the
bodywork.
Do as follows once you have unscrewed the
console and battery cover and wish to
remove the battery:
–
–
–
–
180
– Check that the ignition is switched off.
– Wait at least 5 minutes before touching
any electrical terminals (so that the information in the car’s electrical system can
be stored in the different control
modules).
– Disconnect the negative lead first.
– Then disconnect the positive lead and the
evacuation hose for the oxyhydrogen.
Set the battery in place.
Connect the positive lead first.
Then connect the negative lead.
Make sure the evacuation hose is
correctly connected to both the battery
and the outlet in the bodywork.
Maintenance and service
Battery
WARNING!
The battery contains oxyhydrogen, which
is highly explosive. Be sure that the evacuation hose is correctly connected!
WARNING!
Batteries can generate oxyhydrogen gas,
which is highly explosive. A spark, which
can be generated if you connect the jump
leads incorrectly, is sufficient to make the
battery explode. The battery also contains
sulphuric acid, which can cause serious
burns. If the acid comes into contact with
eyes, skin or clothing, flush with large
quantities of water. If acid splashes into
the eyes, seek medical advice immediately.

Fuses
Cable routing may vary slightly due to engine variant. However, the components listed are in the same positions.
All electrical functions and components are
protected with a number of fuses to protect
your car’s electrical system from damage by
short-circuits or overloads.
If an electrical component or function does
not work, this may be because the
component’s fuse was temporarily
overloaded and blew.
Fuses are housed in four different locations in
the car:
– Look in the fuse diagram to locate the
fuse.
– Pull out the fuse and check from the side
to see whether the curved wire has
blown.
– If this is the case, replace it with a new
fuse of the same colour and amperage.
There are a number of spare fuses in the
cover on the end of the dashboard. There are
also pliers which facilitate the removal and
fitting of fuses.

radio, at the same time without disturbing
each other.
Two sets of headphones can be connected
to each socket.
– Switch sound source with the SEL
button.
– Use the arrow keys,
or
, to change
CD/MD tracks or switch between preset
stations.
someone wearing headphones, the driver
takes control of the sound source.
• Headphone users can choose from
among the presets of the frequency (AM,
FM1, FM2) previously set by the driver. In
some cases, this means that the driver
will not receive NEWS - or traffic information even if TP/NEWS is selected.
• The CD changer can only play one disc
and one song at a time.
For the best sound reproduction, we
recommend headphones with impedance
between 16–32 ohm. The sensitivity of these
should be equal to or greater than 102 dB.
The headphone socket is intended for
3.5 mm contacts and is located on the
bottom of the headphone panel (1).
Headphones – limitations
• If a set of headphones is connected to
the same source that is being sent
through the speakers, the headphones
controls cannot be used to change track
or station. This is so the driver is not
surprised by an unexpected change in
music.

Fuel consumption and emissions
of carbon dioxide
Official fuel consumption figures are based
on a standard driving cycle in accordance
with EU Directive 80/1268 comb. Fuel
consumption figures may change if the car is
equipped with extra equipment that affects
the car’s weight. The manner in which the car
is driven and other non-technical factors can
affect fuel consumption. Consumption is
higher and power output lower for fuel with
an octane rating of 91 RON.
244
Petrol
Most engines can be run with octane ratings
of 91, 95 and 98 RON.
• 91 RON must not be used in 4 cylinder
engines.
• 95 RON can be used for normal driving.
• 98 RON is recommended for optimum
performance and minimum fuel
consumption.
When driving in temperatures above +38 ºC,
it is recommended to use fuel with the
highest possible octane rating for optimum
performance and fuel economy.

system that continuously controls the
injectors. The ratio of air to fuel is continuously adjusted. These adjustments create
optimal conditions for efficient combustion,
and together with the three-way catalytic
converter reduce harmful emissions (hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrous
oxides).
General
The purpose of the catalytic converter is to
purify exhaust gases. It is located in the flow
of exhaust gasses close to the engine so that
it quickly reaches operating temperature.
The catalytic converter consists of a monolith
(ceramic or metal) with channels. The
channel walls are lined with platinum/
rhodium/palladium. These metals act as
catalysts, i.e. they accelerate a chemical
reaction without being used up themselves.
Lambda-sondTM oxygen sensor
The Lambda-sond is part of a control system
intended to reduce emissions and improve
fuel economy.
