INTRODUCTION
01 Introduction
Owner's Manual in the car's screen
Reading the owner's manual
A digital version of the owner's manual is
available1 on the car's screen. The owner's
manual provides information about how the
car works.
A good way of getting to know your new car
is to read the owner's manual, ideally before
your first journey.
For cars with owner information in the screen,
the printed owner's manual is a supplement
and contains important text, the latest
updates, as well as instructions that can be
useful when, for practical reasons, it is not
possible to read the information on the
screen.
The owner's manual is also available on Volvo's support page and can be downloaded as
a mobile app.
Changing the display language may mean
that some information does not correspond
to national or local laws and regulations.
IMPORTANT
The driver is always responsible that the
vehicle is driven safely in traffic and that
applicable laws and regulations are followed. It is also important that the car is
maintained and handled in accordance
with Volvo's recommendations in the
owner's information.
Reading the owner's manual is a good way to
become familiar with new functions, get
advice on how best to handle the car in different situations and learn how to make the best
use of all the car's features. Please pay attention to the safety instructions contained in the
owner's manual.
The specifications, design features and illustrations in this owner's manual are not binding. We reserve the right to make modifications without prior notice.
© Volvo Car Corporation
Owner's Manual in mobile devices
NOTE
01
The Owner's manual is available for download as a mobile application (applies for
certain car models and mobile devices),
see www.volvocars.com.
The mobile application also includes video
and searchable content and easy navigation between different sections.
Options/accessories
All types of option/accessory are marked with
an asterisk*.
In addition to standard equipment, the
owner's manual also describes options (factory fitted equipment) and certain accessories
(retrofitted extra equipment).
The equipment described in the owner's
manual is not available in all cars - they have
different equipment depending on adaptations for the needs of different markets and
national or local laws and regulations.
In the event of uncertainty over what is standard or an option/accessory, contact a Volvo
dealer.
If there should be a difference between the
information on the screen and in the printed manual then it is always the printed
information that applies.

Applies to certain car models.

Special texts
WARNING
Warning texts appear if there is a risk of
injury.
IMPORTANT
"Important" texts appear if there is a risk of
damage.
Decals
Risk of property damage
The car contains different types of decal
which are designed to convey important
information in a simple and clear manner. The
decals in the car have the following descending degree of importance for the warning/
information.
Warning for personal injury
G031592
NOTE
NOTE texts give advice or tips that facilitate the use of features and functions for
example.
White ISO symbols and white text/image on
black or blue warning field and message field.
Used to indicate the presence of danger
which, if the warning is ignored, may result in
damage to property.
Footnote
There is footnote information in the owner's
manual that is located at the bottom of the
page. This information is an addition to the
text that it refers to via a number. If the footnote refers to text in a table then letters are
used instead of numbers for referral.
Message texts
In the car there are displays that show menu
texts and message texts. In the owner's manual the appearance of these texts differs from
the normal text. Examples of menu texts and
message texts: Media, Sending location.
14
G031590
Black ISO symbols on yellow warning field,
white text/image on black message field.
Used to indicate the presence of danger
which, if the warning is ignored, may result in
serious personal injury or fatality.
01 Introduction
Information
When there is a series of illustrations for
step-by-step instructions each step is
numbered in the same way as the corresponding illustration.
Lists of letters appear adjacent to the series of illustrations where the order of the
instructions is not significant.
G031593
Arrows appear numbered and unnumbered and are used to illustrate a movement.
White ISO symbols and white text/image on
black message field.
Arrows with letters are used to clarify a
movement when the reciprocal order is of
no relevance.
If there is no series of illustrations for step-bystep instructions then the different steps are
numbered with normal numbers.
Position lists

Recording data
Certain information about the vehicle's operation and functionality, and any incidents, are
recorded in the car.
Your vehicle contains a number of computers
whose function is to continuously check and
monitor the vehicle's operation and functionality. Some of the computers can record
information during normal driving if they
detect an error. In addition, information is
recorded in the event of a collision or incident. Parts of the recorded information are
required so that technicians can diagnose
and rectify faults in the vehicle during servicing and maintenance and so that Volvo can
fulfil legal requirements and other regulations.
In addition to this, the information is used for
research purposes by Volvo in order to continually develop quality and safety, as the
information can contribute to a better understanding of the factors that cause accidents
and injuries.
The information includes details of the status
and functionality of various systems and
modules in the vehicle with regard to engine,
throttle, steering and brake systems, amongst
other things. This information may include
details regarding the way the driver drives the
vehicle, such as vehicle speed, brake and
accelerator pedal use, steering wheel movement and whether or not the driver and passengers have used their seatbelts. For the
01 Introduction
reasons given this information may be stored
in the vehicle's computers for a certain length
of time, but also as a result of a collision or
incident. This information may be stored by
Volvo as long as it can help to further develop
and further enhance safety and quality and as
long as there are legal requirements and
other regulations that Volvo needs to consider.
Volvo will not contribute to the above-described information being disclosed to third parties without the vehicle owner's consent.
However, due to national legislation and regulations Volvo may be required to disclose
such information to authorities such as police
authorities, or others who may assert a legal
right to have access to it.
To be able to read and interpret the information recorded by the computers in the vehicle
requires special technical equipment that
Volvo, and workshops that have entered into
agreements with Volvo, have access to. Volvo
is responsible that the information, which is
transferred to Volvo during servicing and
maintenance, is stored and handled in a
secure manner and that the handling complies with applicable legal requirements. For
further information - contact a Volvo dealer.

Accessories and extra equipment
The incorrect connection and installation of
accessories and extra equipment can negatively affect the car's electronic system.
Certain accessories only function when associated software is installed in the car's computer system. Volvo therefore recommends
that you always contact an authorised Volvo
workshop before installing accessories or
extra equipment which are connected to or
affect the electrical system.

fuel consumption generally results in lower
emission of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.
Clean air in the passenger
compartment
It is possible for the driver to influence fuel
consumption. For more information, read
under the heading "Contributing to a better
environment".
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.

Interior
The interior of a Volvo is designed to be pleasant and comfortable, even for people with
contact allergies and for asthma sufferers.
Extreme attention has been given to choosing
environmentally-compatible materials.

Volvo workshops and the environment
Regular maintenance creates the conditions
for a long service life and low fuel consumption for your car. In this way you contribute to
a cleaner environment. When Volvo's workshops are entrusted with the service and
maintenance of your car it becomes part of
our system. Volvo makes clear demands
regarding the way in which our workshops
are designed in order to prevent spills and
discharges into the environment. Our workshop staff have the knowledge and the tools
required to guarantee good environmental
care.
Contributing to a better environment
It is easy to contribute to a better environment - here are a few tips:
•
Avoid letting the engine idle - switch off
the engine when stationary for longer
Recycling
Drive economically - think ahead.
Perform service and maintenance in
accordance with the instructions in the
owner's manual - follow the Service and
Warranty Booklet's recommended intervals.
If the car is equipped with an engine
block heater*, use it before starting from
cold - it improves starting capacity and
reduces wear in cold weather and the
engine reaches normal operating temperature more quickly, which lowers consumption and reduces emissions.
•
High speed increases consumption considerably due to increased wind resistance - a doubling of speed increases
wind resistance 4 times.
•
Always dispose of environmentally hazardous waste, such as batteries and oils, in
an environmentally safe manner. Consult
a workshop in the event of uncertainty
about how this type of waste should be
discarded - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
01
As a part of Volvo's environmental work, it is
important that the car is recycled in an environmentally sound manner. Almost all of the
car can be recycled. The last owner of the car
is therefore requested to contact a dealer for
referral to a certified/approved recycling
facility.

General information on seatbelts
02
Heavy braking can have serious consequences if the seatbelts are not used. Ensure that
all passengers are using their seatbelts during
the journey.
Remember
•
•
Do not use clips or anything else that can
prevent the seatbelt from fitting properly.
The seatbelt must not be twisted or
caught on anything.
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
Each seatbelt is designed for only one person.
Tension the hip strap over the lap by pulling the
diagonal shoulder belt up towards the shoulder.
The hip strap must be positioned low down (not
over the abdomen).
It is important that the seatbelt 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.
Unbelted occupants will be reminded to fasten their (p. 27) seatbelt by means of an
audio and visual reminder (p. 29).
26
WARNING
Never modify or repair the seatbelts yourself. Volvo recommends that you contact
an authorised Volvo workshop.
If the seatbelt has been subjected to a
major load, such as in conjunction with a
collision, the entire seatbelt must be
replaced. Some of the seatbelt's protective
properties may have been lost even if the
seatbelt does not appear damaged. The
seatbelt must also be replaced if it shows
signs of wear or damage. The new seatbelt
must be type-approved and designed for
installation at the same location as the
replaced seatbelt.

seatbelt then provides more effective restraint
for the occupants.
WARNING
Never insert the tongue of the passenger's
seatbelt into the buckle on the driver's
side. Always insert the tongue of the seatbelt into the buckle on the correct side. Do
not make any damages on seatbelts nor
insert any foreign objects into a buckle.
The seatbelts and buckles would then
possibly not function as intended in the
event of a collision. There is a risk of
serous injury.

02 Safety
Airbag system
The system consists of airbags and sensors.
A sufficiently violent collision trips the sensors
and the airbag(s) are inflated and become
hot. The airbag cushions the initial collision
impact for the occupant. The airbag deflates
when compressed by the collision. 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.
In the event of a frontal collision the airbag
system helps to protect the head, face and
chest of the driver and passenger.

Side airbag (SIPS)
02
WARNING
In a side impact collision a large proportion of
the collision force is transferred by the SIPS
(Side Impact Protection System) to beams,
pillars, the floor, the roof and other structural
parts of the body. The side airbags at the driver's and front passenger seats protect the
chest area and the hip and are an important
part of the SIPS.
•
Volvo recommends that repairs are
only carried out by an authorised Volvo
workshop. Defective work in the SIPSbag system could cause malfunction
and result in serious personal injury.
•
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.
•
Volvo recommends the use only of car
seat covers approved by Volvo. Other
seat covers may impede the operation
of the side airbags.
•
Side airbags are a supplement the
seatbelts. Always use a seatbelt.
Driver's seat, left-hand drive.
Related information
The SIPS bag system consists of two main
components, side airbag and sensors. The
side airbags are located in the front seat's
backrests.
A sufficiently violent collision trips the sensors
and the side airbags are inflated. The airbag
inflates between the occupant and the door
panel and thereby cushions the initial impact.
The airbag deflates when compressed by the
collision. The side airbag is normally only
deployed on the side of the collision.

heads on the inside of the car during a collision.
Never hang or attach heavy items onto the
handles in the roof. The hook is only
designed for light clothing (not for solid
objects such as umbrellas for example).
Do not screw or install anything onto the
car's headlining, door pillars or side panels. This could compromise the intended
protection. Volvo recommends that you
only ever use Volvo genuine parts that are
approved for placement in these areas.

General information on WHIPS
(whiplash protection)
02
WARNING
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always use a seatbelt.
WHIPS (Whiplash Protection System) is a protection against whiplash injuries. The system
consists of energy absorbing backrests and
specially designed head restraints in the front
seats.
Seat properties
When the WHIPS system is deployed, the
front seat backrests are lowered backward to
change the seating position of the driver and
front seat passenger. This reduces the risk of
whiplash injury.
WARNING
Never modify or repair the seat or WHIPS
system yourself. Volvo recommends that
you contact an authorised Volvo workshop.

The WHIPS system is actuated by a rear-end
collision, where the angle and speed of the
collision, and the nature of the colliding vehicle all have an influence.

Safety mode is a protective state that is
enforced when the collision may have damaged any of the car's vital functions, such as
the fuel lines, sensors for one of the safety
systems, or the brake system.
02
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/injury after intensive exposure. In case
of irritation, wash with cold water. The
rapid deployment sequence and airbag
fabric may cause friction and skin burns.

WARNING
The pedestrian airbag (Pedestrian Airbag) is
fitted under the bonnet near the windscreen.
In the event of certain frontal collisions with a
pedestrian, the sensors in the front bumper
react and the airbag inflates if required, based
on the force of the impact. The sensors are
active at a speed of approx. 20-50 km/h and
an ambient temperature between
-20 and +70°C.
The sensors are designed to detect a collision
with an object that has similar properties to
those of the human leg.
Do not fit any accessories or change anything in the front. Incorrect intervention at
the front may cause incorrect function in
the system and lead to serious injury and
damage to the car.
Volvo recommends that genuine wiper
arms are used and that you only use genuine parts for them.

Eco guide & Power guide*
Instantaneous value
Eco guide and Power guide are two combined instrument panel (p. 62) instruments
which help the driver to drive the car with
optimum driving economy.
The instantaneous value is shown here - the
higher the reading on the scale, the better.
The car also stores statistics of journeys
made, which can be viewed in the form of a
block diagram; see Trip computer - trip statistics* (p. 120).
Eco guide
This instrument provides an indication of how
economically the car is being driven.
To view this function, select the theme "Eco";
see Digital combined instrument panel - overview (p. 63).
The instantaneous value is calculated based
on speed, engine speed, engine power utilised plus use of the foot brake.
Optimum speed (50-80 km/h) and low engine
speeds are encouraged. The pointers fall during acceleration and braking.
Very low instantaneous values illuminate the
red zone on the meter (with a short delay),
which means poor driving economy and
hence should be avoided.

Engine power utilised
The average value slowly follows the instantaneous value and describes how the car has
been driven most recently. The higher the
pointers on the scale, the better the economy
achieved by the driver.
This instrument shows the relationship
between how much power (Power) is being
taken from the engine and how much power
is available.
9
Available engine power
Power is dependent on engine speed.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
The smaller, upper pointer shows the available engine power9. The higher the reading on
the scale, the more power is available in the
current gear.
The larger, lower pointer shows the engine
power utilised9. The higher the reading on the
scale, the more power is being taken from the
engine.
A large gap between the two pointers indicates a large power reserve.

Stability system, sport mode
Sport mode allows for a more active driving
experience. The system then detects whether
the accelerator pedal, steering wheel movements and cornering are more active than in
normal driving and then allows controlled
skidding of the rear section up to a certain
level before it intervenes and stabilises the
car. The symbol illuminates when the sport

CLIMATE CONTROL
04 Climate control
General information on climate
control
The car is equipped with electronic climate
control. The climate control system cools or
heats as well as dehumidifies the air in the
passenger compartment.
There are two different climate control systems:
•
Electronic temperature control (ETC)
(p. 129)
•
Electronic climate control (ECC) (p. 128)
04
NOTE
Air conditioning (AC) (p. 132) can be
switched off, but to ensure the best possible climate comfort in the passenger compartment, and to prevent the windows
from misting, it should always be switched
on.
To bear in mind
122
•
To ensure that the air conditioning works
optimally, the side windows must be
closed.
•
Global opening (p. 174) opens/closes all
side windows simultaneously and can be
used for example to quickly air the car
during hot weather.
•
Remove ice and snow from the climate
control system air intake (the grille
between the bonnet and the windscreen).
•
In warm weather, condensation from the
air conditioning may drip under the car.
This is normal.
•
When the engine requires full power, e.g.
for full acceleration, the air conditioning
can be temporarily switched off. There
may then be a temporary increase in temperature in the passenger compartment.
•
Remove misting on the insides of the windows primarily by using the defroster
function (p. 133). To reduce the risk of
misting, keep the windows clean and use
window cleaner.
Cars with Start/Stop*
With an auto-stopped (p. 277) engine certain
equipment may have its function temporarily
reduced, e.g. climate control fan speed
(p. 131).
Cars with ECO*
Certain equipment may have its function temporarily reduced or deactivated when the
ECO (p. 286) function is activated, e.g. the air
conditioning (p. 132).
NOTE
When the ECO function is activated, several parameters in the climate control system's settings are changed, and several
electricity consumer functions are
reduced. Certain settings can be reset
manually, but full functionality is only
restored by deactivating the ECO function.

Air quality
The temperature you select in the passenger
compartment corresponds to the physical
experience with reference to factors such as
ambient temperature, air speed, humidity and
solar radiation etc. in and around the car at
the time.
The climate control system has a number of
sensors to help control the temperature
(p. 123) in the car.
The interior in a passenger compartment is
designed to be pleasant and comfortable,
even for people with contact allergies and for
asthma sufferers.
The system includes a sun sensor (p. 123)
which detects on which side the sun is shining into the passenger compartment. This
means1 that the temperature can differ
between the right and left-hand air vents
despite the controls being set for the same
temperature on both sides.
•
The sun sensor is located on the top side
of the dashboard.
•
The temperature sensor for the passenger compartment is located below the climate control panel.
•
The outside temperature sensor is
located in the door mirror.
NOTE
Do not cover or block the sensors with
clothing or other objects.

Package (CZIP)*
All air entering the car's passenger compartment is cleaned with a filter.
CZIP comprises a series of modifications that
keep the passenger compartment even
clearer from allergy and asthma-inducing substances.
The filter must be replaced at regular intervals. Follow the Volvo Service Programme for
the recommended replacement intervals. If
the car is used in a severely contaminated
environment, it may be necessary to replace
the filter more often.
The following is included:
•

Air quality (p. 123)
NOTE
To maintain the CZIP standard in cars with
CZIP the IAQS filter should be changed
after 15 000 km or once per year depending on whichever occurs first. However, up
to 75 000 km over 5 years. In cars without
CZIP and where the customer does not
want to retain the CZIP standard, the IAQS
filter must be replaced during a regular
service.
•
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
An enhanced fan function that means that
the fan starts when the car is opened with
the remote control key. The fan fills the
passenger compartment with fresh air.
The function starts when required and is
disengaged automatically after a time or
when one of the passenger compartment
doors is opened. The amount of time the
fan runs is reduced gradually due to
reduced need up until the car is 4 years
old.
The air quality system IAQS (p. 125) is a
fully automatic system that cleans the air
in the passenger compartment from contaminants such as particles, hydrocarbons, nitrous oxides and ground-level
ozone.
For more information on CZIP, see the brochure included with the purchase of the car.

Air quality - IAQS*
Air quality - material
Menu settings - climate control
The air quality system IAQS separates gases
and particles to reduce the levels of odours
and pollution in the passenger compartment.
Tested materials have been developed in
order to minimise the quantity of dust in the
passenger compartment and to contribute to
making the passenger compartment easier to
keep clean.
It is possible to activate/deactivate or change
the default settings for four of the climate
control system's functions via the centre console.
If the outside air is contaminated then the air
intake is closed in order to shut out hydrocarbons, nitrous oxides and ground-level ozone.
The air is recirculated in the passenger compartment.
It is possible to activate/deactivate the function in the menu system MY CAR. For a
description of the menu system, see MY CAR
(p. 109).
NOTE
The air quality sensor must always be enabled to ensure the best air in the passenger compartment.
In a cold climate, automatic recirculation is
limited so as to prevent misting.
The carpets in both the passenger compartment and the cargo area are removable and
easy to remove and clean. Use cleaning
agents and car care products recommended
by Volvo to clean the interior (p. 384).

Cargo net
A cargo net prevents cargo from being
thrown forward in the passenger compartment in the event of heavy braking.
Attaching
NOTE
The easiest way to fit the safety net is via
one of the rear doors.
3. Hook the other end of the rod into the
roof mounting on the opposite side - the
telescopic spring-loaded retaining hooks
facilitate alignment. Take care to press
forward the rod's retaining hooks for each
respective roof mounting's front end position.
WARNING
It is necessary to ensure that the upper
securing points of the safety net are fitted
correctly and that the puller-straps are
secured properly. Damaged nets must not
be used.
The cargo net is fitted into four mounting points.
For safety reasons, the cargo net must
always be correctly fastened and secured.
The mesh is made of a strong nylon fabric
and secured behind the front seat backrests.
1. Unfold the cargo net and make sure that
the split upper rod is locked in the
extended position.
2. Hook one end of the rod into the roof
mounting with the anchoring strap locks
turned towards you.

Removal and storage
The folded cargo net is stored in its bag in the
cargo area.
Pay attention to make sure that you do
not press the seat/backrest hard against
the net when the seat/backrest is moved
back again - only adjust until the seat/
backrest makes contact with the net.
IMPORTANT
If a seat/backrest is pushed backwards
hard into the safety net then the net and/or
its roof mounts may be damaged.
05
5. Tension the cargo net with the anchoring
straps.
The cargo net can be easily removed and folded
up.
Release the tension in the net by pressing
in the button on the anchoring strap's
lock and feeding out part of the strap.
Press in the catch and detach both of the
anchoring strap's hooks.
Unhook the rod from its roof mounting by
pulling back on the rod in the roof mountings' rear end position. Press the rod in
any direction so that the hook engages in
the rod, which at the same time releases
the hook on the other side.
Finally, remove the remaining roof mounting hook from the roof mounting.

Keyless Drive* - range9
Cars equipped with Keyless Drive have a starting and locking system that can be operated
keylessly.
In order to unlock the doors or tailgate automatically without pressing a button on the
remote control key, a remote control key must
be within approx. 1.5 metres from the car's
door handle or tailgate.
With the keyless starting and locking system
the car can be started, locked and unlocked
without the remote control key (p. 157)
inserted in the ignition switch7. It is enough to
have the remote control key with you in a
pocket. The system makes it easier and more
convenient to e.g. open the car when your
hands are full.
The person who wishes to lock or unlock a
door must have the remote control key with
him or her. It is not possible to lock or unlock
a door if the remote control key is on the
opposite side of the car.
Both of the remote control keys included with
the car have Keyless functionality. It is possible to order more remote control keys.
The car's electrical system can be set to
three different levels - key position 0, I and II
(p. 77) - with the remote control key.

It is important to handle all remote control
keys with great care.
Electromagnetic fields and screening can
interfere with the remote control key's Keyless
functions (p. 167).
If one of the remote control keys10 has been
left in the car then the Keyless functionality is
deactivated in case the car is e.g. locked with
the other remote control key that belongs to
the car. This prevents unauthorised entry.
The next time the car is unlocked with the
other remote control key the forgotten remote
control key is reactivated again.

DRIVER SUPPORT
07 Driver support
Electronic stability control (ESC) general
Stability system ESC (Electronic Stability
Control) helps the driver to avoid skidding and
improves the car's traction.
The activation of the ESC system
during braking may be noticed as a
throbbing sound. The car may
accelerate slower than expected
when the accelerator pedal is depressed.
WARNING
The stability system ESC is supplementary
assistance - it cannot handle all situations
in all road conditions.
The driver always bears responsibility that
the vehicle is driven safely and that applicable road traffic rules and regulations are
followed.
The ESC system consists of the following
functions:
07
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
1
184
Active Yaw Control
Spin Control
Traction control system
Engine drag control - EDC
Corner Traction Control - CTC
Driver Steering Recommendation – DSR
Active Yaw Control
Driver Steering Recommendation – DSR
The function checks the driving and brake
force of the wheels individually in order to
stabilise the car.
DSR (Driver Steering Recommendation) helps
the driver steer the car in the right direction
when there is reduced traction or when the
ABS system engages.
Spin Control
The function reduces engine power if the
drive wheels slip against the underlying surface in order to maintain stability and traction.
Traction control system
The function is active at low speed and transfers power from the driving wheel that is spinning to the one that is not.
Engine drag control - EDC
EDC (Engine Drag Control) prevents involuntary wheel locking, e.g. after shifting down or
engine braking when driving in low gears on
slippery road surfaces.
Involuntary wheel locking while driving can,
amongst other things, impair the driver's ability to steer the car.
The primary role of the DSR function is to
help the driver steer in the right direction
when the car is skidding.
DSR engages by applying slight torque to the
steering wheel in the direction in which the
car should be steered to maintain/achieve
maximum possible traction and stabilise the
car.
Trailer Stability Assist* - TSA1
Trailer stability assist (p. 307) function is to
stabilise the car and trailer combination if it
begins to snake. For more information, see
Driving with a trailer (p. 301).
NOTE
The function is deactivated if the driver
selects Sport mode.
Corner Traction Control - CTC
CTC (Corner Traction Control) compensates
for understeer and allows higher than normal
acceleration in a bend without wheelspin on
the inner wheel, e.g. on an arcing motorway
entrance road to quickly reach the prevailing
traffic speed.
Trailer Stability Assist* - TSA
Trailer Stability Assist is included in the installation of the Volvo genuine towbar.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.

Electronic stability control (ESC) operation
Selection of level - Sport mode
The ESC system is always activated - it cannot be deactivated.
However, the driver can
select the Sport mode,
which allows for a more
active driving experience.
In Sport mode the system
detects whether the accelerator pedal, steering wheel movements and
cornering are more active than in normal driving and then allows controlled skidding with
the rear section up to a certain level before it
intervenes and stabilises the car.
Sport mode is indicated in the combined instrument panel by means of
this symbol illuminating with a constant glow until the driver deselects
the function or until the engine is switched off
- after the next time the engine is started the
ESC system is back in its normal mode once
again.

If the driver stops a controlled skid by releasing the accelerator pedal, for example, then
the ESC system intervenes and stabilises the
car.
With Sport mode, maximum traction is also
obtained if the car has become stuck, or
when driving on a loose surface - e.g. sand or
deep snow.

Road Sign Information (RSI)
WARNING
The road sign information function (RSI –
Road Sign Information) helps the driver to
remember which road signs the car has
passed.
RSI does not work in all situations but is
designed merely as a supplementary aid.
The driver always bears ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the vehicle is driven
safely and that applicable road traffic rules
and regulations are followed.
Road sign information (RSI)* operation
The road sign information function (RSI –
Road Sign Information) helps the driver to
remember which road signs the car has
passed. How the function is operated is
described below.

Examples of readable speed related2 signs.
07
The road sign information function gives
information on current speed, that a motorway or road is starting/ending and when
overtaking is prohibited. If both a sign for
motorway/road for motorised traffic and a
sign showing the maximum permitted speed
are passed, RSI decides to show the sign
symbol for maximum permitted speed.

Recorded speed information3.
When RSI has recorded a road sign with an
imposed speed, the combined instrument
panel displays the sign as a symbol.
Together with the symbol for
the current speed limit, a
sign showing that overtaking
is prohibited may also be
displayed where appropriate.
07 Driver support
End of restriction or motorway
Additional signs
A corresponding road sign is shown in the
combined instrument panel for
approx. 10 seconds in situations where RSI
detects a sign that involves the end of a
speed limit - or other speed-related information, e.g. end of a motorway.
Examples of such signs are:
Display of additional information
End of all restrictions.
Examples of additional signs3.
End of motorway.
Following which, the sign information is hidden until the next speed-related sign is
detected.
Sometimes different speed limits are signposted for the same road - an additional sign
then indicates the circumstances under which
the different speeds apply. The road section
may be particularly susceptible to accidents
in rain and/or fog, for example.
A symbol for additional sign
in the form of an empty
frame under the combined
instrument panel's speed
symbol means that the RSI
has detected an additional
sign with supplementary
information for the current speed limit.
Road sign information On/Off
An additional sign relating to rain is displayed
only if the windscreen wipers are in use.
The speed applicable on an
exit is indicated in certain
markets by means of an
additional sign containing an
arrow.
Speed signs linked to this
type of additional sign are displayed only if
the driver is using the direction indicator.
3
Some speeds are applicable
only after e.g. a specific distance or at a certain time of
day. The driver's attention is
drawn to the situation by
means of a symbol for an
additional sign under the
symbol showing speed.
Road signs shown in the combined instrument panel are market-dependent - the illustrations only show a few examples.

Road sign information (RSI)* limitations
The road sign information function (RSI –
Road Sign Information) helps the driver to
remember which road signs the car has
passed. The function has the following limitations.
Speed limiter*
A (Speed Limiter) can be regarded as a
reverse cruise control - the driver regulates
the speed using the accelerator pedal but is
prevented from accidentally exceeding a preselected/set speed by the speed limiter.
The RSI function's camera sensor has limitations just like the human eye. Find out more
about this in the section on the camera sensor limitations (p. 230).
Signs which indirectly provide information on
a prevailing speed limit, e.g. name signs for
towns/districts, are not recorded by the RSI
function.
The driver can opt to receive a warning when
the applicable speed limit is exceeded by
5 km/h or more. This warning is given by the
symbol showing the applicable maximum
speed temporarily flashing when this speed is
exceeded.

Adaptive cruise control (ACC)*
The adaptive cruise control (ACC – Adaptive

The adaptive cruise control provides a more
relaxing driving experience on long journeys
on motorways and long straight main roads in
smooth traffic flows.
The driver sets the desired speed (p. 203)
and time interval to the car in front. When the
radar detector detects a slower vehicle in
front of the car, the speed is automatically
adapted to that. When the road is clear again
the car returns to the selected speed.
If the adaptive cruise control is switched off
or set to standby mode and the car comes
too close to a vehicle in front, then the driver
is warned instead by a Distance Alert (p. 214)
about the short distance.

not maintaining a suitable speed or suitable distance.
The adaptive cruise control cannot handle
all traffic, weather and road conditions.
Read all the sections about the adaptive
cruise control in the owner's manual in
order to learn about its limitations, of
which the driver should be aware before it
is used.
The driver always bears responsibility for
maintaining the correct distance and
speed, even when the adaptive cruise control is being used.

Adaptive cruise control consists of a cruise

07 Driver support
WARNING
Adaptive cruise control is not a collision
avoidance system. The driver must intervene if the system does not detect a vehicle in front.
The adaptive cruise control does not brake
for humans or animals, and not for small
vehicles such as bicycles and motorcycles. Nor for oncoming, slow or stationary
vehicles and objects.
Do not use the adaptive cruise control, for
example, in city traffic, in dense traffic, at
junctions, on slippery surfaces, with a lot
of water or slush on the road, in heavy
rain/snow, in poor visibility, on winding
roads or on slip roads.
The distance to the vehicle ahead is mainly
measured by a radar sensor. The cruise control function regulates the speed with acceleration and braking. It is normal for the brakes
to emit a low sound when they are being
used by the adaptive cruise control.
WARNING
The brake pedal moves when the adaptive
cruise control brakes. Do not rest your foot
beneath the brake pedal - it may then
become trapped.
11
12
The adaptive cruise control aims to follow the
vehicle ahead in the same lane according to
what the driver set for time interval (p. 204). If
the radar sensor cannot see any vehicle in
front then the car will instead maintain the
speed set and stored by the driver. This also
takes place if the speed of the vehicle in front
exceeds the stored speed.
Warning lamp - braking by driver
required
Adaptive cruise control has a braking
capacity that is equivalent to approx. 40% of
the car's braking capacity.
The adaptive cruise control aims to control
the speed in a smooth way. In situations that
demand sudden braking the driver must
brake himself/herself. This applies with large
differences in speed, or if the vehicle in front
brakes heavily. Due to limitations in the radar
sensor (p. 209) braking may come unexpectedly or not at all.
The adaptive cruise control can be activated
to follow another vehicle at speeds from
30 km/h11 up to 200 km/h. If the speed falls
below 30 km/h or if the engine speed
becomes too low, the cruise control is set in
standby mode at which automatic braking
ceases - the driver must then take over himself/herself to maintain a safe distance to the
vehicle ahead.
Queue Assist (p. 206) in cars with automatic gearbox can operate in the range 0-200 km/h.
NOTE: The illustration is schematic - details may vary depending on car model.
1. Collision warning system warning lamp and
warning sound12.
If the car needs to be braked more heavily
than the adaptive cruise control capacity and
the driver does not brake, then the warning
lamp and warning sound from the Collision
warning system (p. 224) are used in order to
alert the driver that immediate intervention is
required.

NOTE
The warning lamp may be difficult to see in
strong sunlight or when wearing sunglasses.
WARNING
The adaptive cruise control only warns of
vehicles which the radar sensor has
detected. Hence the warning may not be
given, or it may be given with a certain
delay. Do not wait for a warning without
braking when so required.

Steep roads and/or heavy load
Bear in mind that the adaptive cruise control
is primarily intended for use when driving on
level road surfaces. It may have difficulty in
keeping the correct distance from the vehicle
ahead when driving on steep downhill slopes,
with a heavy load or with a trailer - in which
case, be extra attentive and ready to slow
down.

Different time intervals to the
vehicle in front can be
selected and shown in the

Read more how speed is handled (p. 203).
Related information
At low speed, when the distances are short,
the adaptive cruise control increases the time
interval slightly.

Note that a short time interval only allows the
driver a short time to react and take action if
any unforeseen traffic problem should arise.
The same symbol is also shown when Distance Alert (p. 214) is activated.

The adaptive cruise control allows the time
interval to vary noticeably in certain situations
in order to allow the car to follow the vehicle
in front smoothly and comfortably.
07
If the adaptive cruise control does not
appear to react when activated, this may
be because the time distance to the vehicle in front is preventing an increase in
speed.

cruise control will ignore the stationary
vehicle and instead select the stored
speed.
See more information under the heading
"Termination of automatic braking at a

Activation of the cruise control below
30 km/h requires a vehicle in front within a
reasonable distance.
For shorter stops in connection with inching
in slow traffic or at traffic lights driving is
automatically resumed if the stops do not
exceed approx. 3 seconds - if it takes longer
before the car in front starts moving again
then the cruise control is set in standby mode
(p. 205) with automatic braking. The driver
must then reactivate it in one of the following
ways:
WARNING
The Queue Assist function can keep the
car stationary for a maximum of 4 minutes
- then the brakes release.
The adaptive cruise control is disengaged
and set in standby mode:
If the target vehicle in front suddenly turns then
there may be stationary traffic in front.
When the adaptive cruise control is following
another vehicle at speeds lower than
30 km/h and changes target from a moving to
a stationary vehicle, the cruise control will
slow down for the stationary vehicle.

WARNING
WARNING
The driver must always be observant with
regard to the traffic conditions and intervene when the adaptive cruise control is
not maintaining a suitable speed or suitable distance.
Adaptive cruise control is not a collision
avoidance system. The driver must intervene if the system does not detect a vehicle in front.
The adaptive cruise control does not brake
for humans or animals, and not for small
vehicles such as bicycles and motorcycles. Nor for oncoming, slow or stationary
vehicles and objects.
The adaptive cruise control cannot handle
all traffic, weather and road conditions.
Read all the sections about the adaptive
cruise control in the owner's manual in
order to learn about its limitations, of
which the driver should be aware before it
is used.
Do not use the adaptive cruise control, for
example, in city traffic, in dense traffic, at
junctions, on slippery surfaces, with a lot
of water or slush on the road, in heavy
rain/snow, in poor visibility, on winding
roads or on slip roads.
The driver always bears responsibility for
maintaining the correct distance and
speed, even when the adaptive cruise control is being used.
WARNING
ACC field of vision.
07
Sometimes the radar sensor is late at
detecting vehicles at close distances e.g. a vehicle that drives in between the
car and vehicles in front.
Accessories or other objects such as auxiliary lamps must not be fitted in front of the
grille.
Small vehicles, such as motorcycles, or
vehicles not driving in the centre of the
lane can remain undetected.
In bends the radar sensor may detect the
wrong vehicle or lose a detected vehicle
from view.

City Safety™
Maintenance and replacement of City
Safety™ components must only be performed by a workshop - an authorised
Volvo workshop is recommended.
The City Safety™ function is active at speeds
under 50 km/h and it helps the driver by automatically braking the car in the event of imminent risk of collision with vehicles in front,
should the driver not react in time by braking
and/or steering away.
City Safety™ does not engage in all driving situations or traffic, weather or road
conditions.
City Safety™ does not react to vehicles
driving in a different direction from the car,
to small vehicles and motorcycles or to
people and animals.
City Safety™ can prevent collision at a
speed difference of less than 15 km/h - at
a higher speed difference, it is only possible to reduce collision speed. In order to
obtain full brake function, the driver must
depress the brake pedal.
City Safety™ is designed to be activated as
late as possible in order to avoid unnecessary
intervention.
The driver or passengers normally only notice
City Safety™ if a situation arises where the
car is extremely close to being in a collision.
If the car is also equipped with Collision
Warning with Auto Brake* (p. 224) these two
systems complement each other.
City Safety™ detects the traffic in front of the
car with a laser sensor (p. 221) fitted in the
top edge of the windscreen. If there is an
imminent risk of collision, City Safety™ will
automatically brake the car, which may be
experienced as sudden braking.
WARNING
City Safety™ is activated in situations where
the driver should have started braking earlier,
which is why it cannot help the driver in every
situation.
City Safety™ must not be used as an excuse
for the driver to change his/her driving style. If
the driver solely relies on City Safety™ to do
the braking, there might be a risk of a collision sooner or later.
City Safety™ - function
IMPORTANT
City Safety™ is a function for helping the
driver to avoid a collision when driving in
queues, amongst other things, when changes
in the traffic ahead, combined with a lapse in
attention, could lead to an incident.
Never wait for City Safety™ to engage.
The driver always bears responsibility for
maintaining the proper distance and
speed.

projecting load, or accessories such as auxiliary lamps and bull bars that are higher than
the bonnet limit the function.
The laser light from the sensor in City
Safety™ measures how the light is reflected.
The sensor cannot detect objects with low
reflection capacity. The rear sections of the
vehicle generally reflect the light sufficiently
thanks to the number plate and rear light
reflectors.
On slippery road surfaces the braking distance is extended, which may reduce the
capacity of City Safety™ to avoid a collision.
In such situations the ABS19 and ESC20 sys-

tems will provide best possible braking force
with maintained stability.
When your own car is reversing, City Safety™
is temporarily deactivated.
City Safety™ is not activated at low speeds under 4 km/h, which is why the system does
not intervene in situations where a vehicle in
front is being approached very slowly, e.g.
when parking.
Driver commands are always prioritised,
which is why City Safety™ does not intervene
in situations where the driver is steering or
accelerating in a clear manner, even if a collision is unavoidable.
When City Safety™ has prevented a collision
with a stationary object the car remains stationary for a maximum of 1.5 seconds. If the
car is braked for a vehicle in front that is moving, then speed is reduced to the same speed
as that maintained by the vehicle in front.
On a car with manual gearbox the engine
stops when City Safety™ has stopped the
car, unless the driver manages to depress the
clutch pedal beforehand.

"Collision Warning with Auto Brake and
Cyclist and Pedestrian Detection" is an aid to
assist the driver when there is a risk of colliding with a pedestrian, cyclist or vehicle in
front that are stationary or moving in the same
direction.
The driver is merely warned21 of occurring
obstacles by means of visual and acoustic
signals - no automatic braking intervenes, the
driver must himself brake.
"Collision Warning with Auto Brake and
Cyclist and Pedestrian Detection" is activated
in situations where the driver should have
started braking earlier, which is why it cannot
help the driver in every situation.
The driver is warned of occurring obstacles
by means of visual and acoustic signals - the
car is braked automatically if the driver himself does not act within a reasonable time.
Level 2
"Collision Warning with Auto Brake and
Cyclist and Pedestrian Detection" is designed
to be activated as late as possible in order to
avoid unnecessary intervention.
IMPORTANT
Maintenance of the internal components of
the "Collision Warning with Auto Brake
and Cyclist and Pedestrian Detection"
must only be performed at a workshop an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
"Collision Warning with Auto Brake and
Cyclist and Pedestrian Detection" can prevent a collision or reduce collision speed.

"Collision Warning with Auto Brake and
Cyclist and Pedestrian Detection" must not
be used as an excuse for the driver to change
his/her driving style. If the driver solely relies
on Collision Warning with Auto Brake to do
the braking, there might be a risk of a collision sooner or later.

Collision warning system* - function
1 - Collision warning
The driver is first warned of a potentially
imminent collision.
The collision warning system can detect
pedestrians, cyclists or vehicles that are stationary or moving in the same direction in
front of the driver's vehicle.
If there is a risk of collision with a pedestrian,
cyclist or a vehicle then the driver's attention
is attracted with a flashing red warning signal
(1) and an acoustic signal.
If in this situation the driver has not yet
started to take evasive action and the risk of
collision is imminent then the automatic braking function is deployed - this takes place
irrespective of whether or not the driver
brakes. Braking then takes place with full
brake force in order to reduce collision speed,
or with limited brake force if it is sufficient to
avoid a collision. For cyclists, the warning and
full brake intervention may come very late or
simultaneously.
2 - Brake support

22
23
If the risk of collision has increased further
after the collision warning then the brake support is activated.
This means that the brake system is prepared
for rapid braking by applying the brakes
lightly, which may feel like a slight jolt.
If the brake pedal is depressed sufficiently
quickly then full brake function is implemented.
Brake support also reinforces the driver's
braking if the system considers that the braking is not sufficient to avoid a collision.

WARNING
The collision warning system does not
engage in all driving situations or traffic,
weather or road conditions. The collision
warning system does not react to vehicles
or cyclists driving in another direction to
the car or to animals.
Collision warning system* - detection
of cyclists
Optimal performance of the system requires
that the system function that detects a cyclist
receives as unambiguous information as possible about the body and bicycle contours this implies the opportunity to identify the
bicycle, head, arms, shoulders, legs, upper
and lower body combined with a normal
human pattern of movement.
Warning only activated in the event of a
high risk for collision. This section "Function" and the section "Limitations" inform
about limitations that the driver must be
aware of before using the Collision Warning system with Auto Brake.
Warnings and brake interventions for
pedestrians and cyclists are deactivated at
a vehicle speed exceeding 80 km/h.
Warnings and brake interventions for
pedestrians and cyclists do not work in
darkness and tunnels - not even when
streetlights are lit.
If large parts of the cyclist's body or bicycle
are not visible to the function's camera then
the system cannot detect a cyclist.
Never wait for a collision warning. The
driver is always responsible that the correct distance and speed are maintained even when the collision warning system
with auto-brake is used.

NOTE
Collision warning system* - limitations
Maintenance
The function has certain limitations - for

being late in certain situations, e.g. when
there are large differences in speed or if
vehicles in front brake heavily.
The collision warning system's visual warning
signal may be difficult to notice in the event of
strong sunlight, reflections, when sunglasses
are being worn or if the driver is not looking
straight ahead. The warning sound should
therefore always be activated.
WARNING
No automatic system can guarantee
100 % correct function in all situations.

WARNING
Warnings and brake interventions could be
implemented late or not at all if the traffic
situation or external influences mean that
the radar or camera sensor cannot detect
a pedestrian, a vehicle or a cyclist in front
correctly.
The sensor system has a limited range for
pedestrians and cyclists27 - the system
can provide effective warnings and brake
interventions for them at vehicle speeds up
to 50 km/h. For stationary or slow-moving
vehicles, warnings and brake interventions
are effective at vehicle speeds up to
70 km/h.
Warnings for stationary or slow-moving
vehicles could be disengaged due to darkness or poor visibility.
Warnings and brake interventions for
pedestrians and cyclists are deactivated at
vehicle speeds exceeding 80 km/h.
The collision warning system uses the same
radar sensors as the adaptive cruise control
(p. 199).
07
Collision warning system* - camera
sensor limitations
Collision Warning with Auto Brake is not activated at low speeds - under 4 km/h, which is
why the system does not intervene in situations where the car is approaching a vehicle
in front very slowly, e.g. when parking.
The function uses the car's camera sensor,
which has certain limitations.
In situations where the driver demonstrates
active, aware driving behaviour, a collision
warning may be postponed slightly in order to
keep unnecessary warnings to a minimum.
•
•
•
•
When Auto Brake has prevented a collision
with a stationary object the car remains stationary for a maximum of 1.5 seconds. If the
car is braked for a vehicle in front that is moving, then speed is reduced to the same speed
as that maintained by the vehicle in front.
On a car with manual gearbox the engine
stops when Auto Brake has stopped the car,
unless the driver manages to depress the
clutch pedal beforehand.
The car’s camera sensor is also used - as
well as by Collision Warning with Auto Brake
- by the functions:
Active main beam (p. 88)
Road sign information (p. 188)
Driver Alert Control - DAC (p. 233)
Lane Keeping Aid (p. 236).
NOTE
Keep the windscreen surface in front of the
camera sensor free from ice, snow, mist
and dirt.
Do not stick or attach anything to the
windscreen in front of the camera sensor
as this may reduce effectiveness or cause
one or more of the systems dependent on
the camera to stop working.
Related information
•
Collision warning system* (p. 224)
If warnings are perceived as being too frequent or disturbing then the warning distance
can be reduced. This then leads to the system providing a warning at a later stage,
which reduces the total number of warnings;
see Collision warning system - operation
(p. 228).
27

Collision Warning with Auto Brake is temporarily deactivated with reverse gear engaged.
For cyclists, the warning and full brake intervention may come very late or simultaneously.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
The camera sensors have limitations similar
to the human eye, i.e. they "see" worse in
darkness, heavy snowfall or rain and in thick
fog for example. Under such conditions the
functions of camera-dependent systems
could be significantly reduced or temporarily
disengaged.
07 Driver support
Strong oncoming light, reflections in the carriageway, snow or ice on the road surface,
dirty road surfaces or unclear lane markings
could also significantly reduce camera sensor
function when it is used to scan the carriageway and detect pedestrians and other vehicles.
The field of vision of the camera sensor is limited, which is why pedestrians, cyclists and
vehicles cannot be detected in some situations, or they are detected later than anticipated.
During very high temperatures the camera is
temporarily switched off for about 15 minutes
after the engine is started in order to protect
camera functionality.
Fault tracing and action
If the display shows the message
Windscreen sensors blocked See manual
then this means that the camera sensor is
blocked and cannot detect pedestrians,
cyclists, vehicles or road markings in front of

WARNING
Lane Keeping Aid is one of the functions in
the Driver Alert System - sometimes also
referred to as LKA (Lane Keeping Aid).
LKA is merely a driver's aid and does not
engage in all driving situations or traffic,
weather or road conditions.
The function is intended for use on motorways and similar major roads in order to
reduce the risk of the vehicle accidentally
leaving its own lane in certain situations.
The driver always bears ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the vehicle is driven
safely and that applicable laws and road
traffic regulations are followed.

A camera reads the painted side lines of the
road/lane. If the car is about to cross a side
line then Lane Keeping Aid will actively steer
the car back into the lane with a slight steering torque in the steering wheel.
If the car reaches or crosses a side line then
Lane Keeping Aid will also alert the driver with
vibration in the steering wheel.
236
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Lane Keeping Aid - function
Certain settings can be made for the Lane
Keeping Aid (Lane Keeping Aid) function.

LKA steers and alerts with steering wheel vibration28.
If the car crosses a side line then Lane Keeping Aid will alert the driver with vibration in the
steering wheel29. This occurs regardless of
whether the car is actively steered back by
applying a slight steering torque.
In certain cases Lane assistance will allow the
car to cross lane lines without engaging
active steering or activating a warning. Using
an adjacent lane for cutting a corner when
there is a clear line of vision is an example of
this.

Hands on the steering wheel
In order for Lane Keeping Aid to operate, the
driver must have his/her hands on the steering wheel. LKA continually monitors this. If
hands are not detected on the steering wheel
then a text message is shown, prompting the
driver to actively steer the car.
If the driver does not follow the request to
begin steering then Lane Keeping Aid goes

Marked sectors show which of the four sensor(s) detected an obstacle. The closer to the
car symbol a selected sector box is, the
shorter the distance between the car and a
detected obstacle.
IMPORTANT
Objects e.g. chains, thin glossy poles or
low barriers may be in the "signal shadow"
and are then temporarily not detected by
the sensors - the pulsating tone may then
unexpectedly stop instead of changing
over to the expected constant tone.
The frequency of the signal increases the
shorter the distance to an obstacle, in front of
or behind the car. Other sound from the audio
system is muted automatically.
On/Off for the sensors for parking assistance and
CTA30.
The centre console's display screen shows
an overview of the relationship between the
car and detected obstacle.
The sensors cannot detect high objects,
such as projecting loading docks.
•
When the distance is within 30 cm the tone is
constant and the active sensor's field nearest
the car is filled in. If the detected obstacle is
within the distance for the constant tone both
behind and in front of the car, then the tone
sounds alternately from the loudspeakers.
In such situations, pay extra attention
and manoeuvre/reposition the car particularly slowly or stop the current
parking manoeuvre - there may be a
high risk of damage to vehicles or
other objects since the sensors are
temporarily unable to function optimally.

The driver should bear in mind that the Park
Assist Pilot is an aid – not an infallible, fullyautomatic function. The driver must therefore
be prepared to intervene. There are also
details to bear in mind while parking, e.g.:
•
PAP starts out from the current location
of the parked vehicles - if they are inappropriately parked then the car's tyres
and wheel rims may be damaged against
kerbs.
•
PAP is designed for parking on straight
streets, not sharp curves or bends. For
this reason, make sure the car is parallel
to the parking space when PAP measures
the space.
•
It is not always possible to find parking
spaces on narrow streets since there is
not enough space for manoeuvring. In
such parking situations, it helps the system to drive as close to the side of the
road as possible where you intend to
park.
•
Bear in mind that the front of the car may
swing out towards oncoming traffic while
being parked.
•
Objects situated higher than the detection
areas of the sensors are not included
when calculations are made for the parking manoeuvre. This may cause PAP to
swing into the parking space too early,
NOTE
Dirt, ice and snow covering the sensors
will reduce their function and may prevent
measurement.
IMPORTANT
Under certain circumstances, PAP is
unable to find parking spaces - one reason
for this may be the fact that there is interference with the sensors from external
sound sources which emit the same ultrasound frequencies as those with which the
system works.
Examples of such sources include horns,
wet tyres on asphalt, pneumatic brakes
and exhaust noises from motorcycles etc.

and hence such parking pockets should
be avoided.
•
The driver is responsible for determining
whether the space selected by PAP is
suitable for parking.
•
Use approved tyres36 with the correct tyre
pressure - this affects the ability of PAP
to park the car.
•
Heavy rain or snow may cause the system to measure the parking space incorrectly.
•
Do not use PAP if snow chains or a spare
wheel are fitted.
•
Do not use PAP if loaded objects are protruding from the car.
IMPORTANT
The PAP system's parameters may need
to be updated when changing to another
approved wheel rim size involving changed
tyre circumference. Consult a workshop an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.

BLIS
Overview
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) is a
function designed for providing support for
the driver when driving in dense traffic on
roads with several lanes in the same direction.
BLIS is a driver's aid intended to provide a
warning about:
•
•
vehicles in the car's blind spot
quickly approaching vehicles in the left
and right lanes closest to the car.
WARNING
BLIS is a supplementary aid and does not
work in all situations.
Position of the BLIS lamp38.
Indicator lamp
NOTE
The lamp illuminates on the side of the car
where the system has detected the vehicle. If the car is overtaken on both sides at

BLIS - operation
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) is a
function designed for providing support for
the driver when driving in dense traffic on
roads with several lanes in the same direction.
Activate/deactivate BLIS
BLIS is activated when the engine is started.
This is confirmed by the indicator lamps in
the door panels flashing once.
•
Select On or Off at Settings
settings BLIS.

When BLIS is deactivated/activated the lamp
in the button goes out/illuminates and the
combined instrument panel confirms the
change with a text message. The door panel
indicator lamps flash once upon activation.
To extinguish the message:
•
Press the left stalk switch OK button.
or
•
Wait approx. 5 seconds – the message
extinguishes.
The system is designed to react when:
•
•
the vehicle is overtaken by other vehicles
another vehicle is quickly approaching
the vehicle.
When BLIS detects a vehicle in zone 1 or a
quickly approaching vehicle in zone 2, the
door panel BLIS lamp illuminates with a constant glow. If the driver activates the direction
indicator on the same side as the warning in
this situation then the BLIS lamp will change
from a constant glow to flashing with a more
intense light.
WARNING
When BLIS operates
BLIS does not work in sharp bends.
BLIS does not work when the car is being
reversed.
Limitations
•
Dirt, ice and snow covering sensors can
reduce functionality and make it impossible to provide warnings. BLIS cannot
detect hazards if it is covered.
•
Do not affix any objects, tape or labels in
the area of the sensors.
•
BLIS is deactivated when a trailer is connected to the car's electrical system.

CTA is primarily designed to detect vehicles.
In favourable conditions, it may also be able
to detect smaller objects, such as cyclists
and pedestrians.
Examples of further limitations:
•
CTA is only active during reversing and is

Dirt, ice and snow covering sensors can
reduce functionality and make it impossible to provide warnings. CTA cannot
detect hazards if it is covered.
•
CTA is deactivated when a trailer is connected to the car’s electrical system.
•
If CTA detects something approaching
from the side, an acoustic warning signal
sounds. The signal comes from either the
left or the right speaker depending on
which direction the approaching object is
coming from.
•
CTA also warns by illuminating the BLIS
lamps.

Limitations
CTA does not perform optimally in all situations, but has a certain limitation - for example, the CTA sensors cannot "see" through
other parked vehicles or obstructing objects.
Here are some examples of when CTA's "field
of vision" may be limited from the beginning

then the car can be started with current from
another battery.
4. Connect one of the red jump lead's
clamps to the donor battery's positive
terminal (1).
11. Start the engine in the car with the discharged battery.
IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT
Connect the start cable carefully to avoid
short circuits with other components in the
engine compartment.
5. Open the clips on the front cover of the
battery in your car and remove the cover.
6. Connect the red jump lead's other clamp
onto the car's positive terminal (2).
Do not use the connections when attempting to start, as there is a risk of sparking.
12. Remove the jump leads in reverse order first the black and then the red.
> Make sure that none of the black jump
lead's clamps comes into contact with
the battery's positive terminal or the
clamp connected to the red jump lead.
7. Connect one of the black jump lead's
clamps to the donor battery's negative
terminal (3).
When jump starting the car, the following
steps are recommended to avoid short circuits or other damage:
8. Connect the other clamp to a grounding
point, e.g. right-hand engine mounting at
the top, the outer screw head (4).
1. Set the car's electrical system in key
position 0, see Key positions (p. 76).
9. Check that the jump lead clamps are
affixed securely so that there are no
sparks during the starting attempt.
2. Check that the donor battery has a voltage of 12 V.
3. If the donor battery is installed in another
car - switch off the donor car's engine
and make sure that the two cars do not
touch each other.

WARNING
10. Start the engine of the "donor car" and
allow it to run a few minutes at a speed
slightly higher than idle
approx. 1500 rpm.
•
The battery can generate oxyhydrogen
gas, which is highly explosive. A spark
can be formed if a jump lead is connected incorrectly, and this can be
enough for the battery to explode.
•
The battery contains sulphuric acid,
which can cause serious burns.
•
If sulphuric 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.

Gear shift indicator*
Automatic gearbox
The gear shift indicator notifies the driver
when it is appropriate to engage the next
higher or lower gear in order to obtain the
lowest possible fuel consumption.
An essential detail in connection with environmental driving is to drive in the right gear and
to change gear in plenty of time.
An indicator is available as an aid on some
variants - GSI (Gear Shift Indicator) - which
notifies the driver when it is appropriate to
engage the next higher or lower gear in order
to obtain the lowest possible fuel consumption. However, taking into consideration characteristics such as performance and vibration-free running, it may be advantageous to
change gear at a higher engine speed.

Automatic gearbox - Geartronic*
An automatic gearbox with Geartronic differs
from an Automatic gearbox - Powershift
(p. 274), in that it has a hydraulic torque converter that transfers power from engine to
gearbox. It has two different gear modes Automatic and Manual.
The gear lever's gearshift pattern varies depending on engine option.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Manual gearbox (p. 269)
Automatic gearbox - Geartronic* (p. 270)
D: Automatic gear positions. +/–: Manual gear
positions. S: Sport mode*.4
The combined instrument panel shows the
position of the gear selector using the following indications: P, R, N, D, S*, 1, 2, 3 etc.
08 Starting and driving
Gear positions
Automatic gear positions are
indicated on the right of the
combined instrument panel.
(Only one marker is illuminated at a time - the one
showing the current gear
selector position.)
Symbol "S" for Sport mode is ORANGE when
the mode is active.
P – Parking position
Select P when starting the engine or when
the car is parked.
To be able to move the gear selector from the
P position, the brake pedal must be
depressed and the key position must be II.
The gearbox is mechanically blocked when
the P position is engaged. Also apply the
parking brake when the car is parked, see
Parking brake (p. 290).
NOTE
The gear selector must be in P position to
allow the car to be locked and alarmed.
IMPORTANT
The car must be stationary when position P is selected.
WARNING
Always apply the parking brake when
parking on a slope - the automatic transmission in P is not sufficient to hold the car
in all situations.
R – Reverse
end position at "+/-". The combined instrument panel's symbol "+/-" changes colour
from WHITE to ORANGE and the digits 1, 2, 3
etc. are displayed in a box which corresponds to the gear that has just been
selected.
•
Move the lever forwards towards + (plus)
to change up a gear and release the
lever, which returns to its neutral position
between "+" and "–".
The car must be stationary when position R is
selected.
N – Neutral
No gear is engaged and the engine can be
started. Apply the parking brake if the car is
stationary with the gear selector in position N.
In order to be able to move the gear selector
from the N position to another gear position,
the brake pedal must be depressed and the
key position (p. 77) must be II.
D – Drive
D is the normal driving position. Shifting up
and down takes place automatically based on
the level of acceleration and speed. The car
must be stationary when the gear selector is
moved to position D from position R.
Geartronic – Manual gear positions (+/-)
The driver can also change gear manually
using the Geartronic automatic gearbox. The
car engine-brakes when the accelerator pedal
is released.
The manual gear position is reached by moving the lever to the side from position D to the
or
•
Pull the lever back towards "–" (minus) to
change down a gear and release it.
The manual gearshift mode "+/-" can be
selected at any time while driving.
Geartronic automatically shifts down if the
driver allows the speed to decrease lower
than a level suitable for the selected gear, in
order to avoid jerking and stalling.
To return to automatic driving mode:
•
Move the lever to the side to the end
position at D.
NOTE
f the gearbox has a Sport programme then
the gearbox will only become manual after
the lever has been moved forwards or
backwards in its "+/-" position. The combined instrument panel then shifts the indication from S to show which of the gears
1, 2, 3 etc. is engaged.

Paddles*
As a supplement to manual gear changing
with the gear selector there are also controls
located on the steering wheel, so-called
"paddles".
To be able to change gear with the steering
wheel paddles they must first be activated.
This is by means of pulling one of the paddles
toward the steering wheel - the combined
instrument panel then changes indication
from "D" to a figure, which indicates the current gear.
To then change gear one step:
•
Pull one of the paddles backwards towards the steering wheel - and release.
A gear change occurs at each pull of the paddle provided that the engine speed does not
leave the permitted range.
After each gear change the combined instrument panel changes figure to show the current gear.
NOTE
Automatic deactivation
If the steering wheel paddles are not used
then they are deactivated after a short time
- this is indicated when the combined
instrument panel switches indication, from
the figure for the current gear back to "D".
The exception is during engine braking then the paddles are activated as long as
engine braking is in progress.
Manual deactivation
The steering wheel paddle shifters can
also be deactivated manually:
•
Both steering wheel "paddles".
"-": Selects the next lower gear.
08
"+": Selects the next higher gear.
5
272
Pull both paddles toward the steering
wheel and hold until the combined
instrument panel changes character
from the figure for the current gear to
"D".
The paddles can also be used with the gear
selector in Sport mode* - then the paddles
are constantly activated without being deactivated.
If the car has Sport mode* then "S" is shown first.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Geartronic - Sport mode (S)
The Sport programme provides
sportier characteristics and allows
higher engine speed for the gears.
At the same time it responds more
quickly to acceleration. During active driving,
the use of a lower gear is prioritised, leading
to a delayed upshift.
To activate Sport mode:
•
Move the gear selector to the side from D
position to the end position at "+S–" - the
combined instrument panel changes indication from D to S.
Sport mode can be selected at any time while
driving.
Geartronic - Winter mode
It can be easier to pull away on slippery roads
if 3rd gear is engaged manually.
1. Depress the brake pedal and move the
gear selector from D position to the end
position at "+/–" - the combined instrument panel shifts the indication from D to
the figure 15.
2. Scroll up to gear 3 by pushing the lever
forward towards "+" (plus) twice - the
combined instrument panel shifts the
indication from 1 to 3.
3. Release the brake and accelerate carefully.
08 Starting and driving
The gearbox "winter mode" means that the
car moves off with a lower engine speed and
reduced engine power on the drive wheels.
Kick-down
When the accelerator pedal 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.
Towing
If the car has to be towed - see important
information in the section Towing (p. 308).
Related information
•
Transmission fluid - grade and volume
(p. 399)
•
•
Gearboxes (p. 269)
Automatic gearbox - Powershift* (p. 274)
If the accelerator is released from the kickdown position, the gearbox automatically
changes up.
Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.
Safety function
To prevent overrevving the engine, the gearbox control program has a protective downshift inhibitor which prevents the kick-down
function.
Geartronic does not permit downshifting/
kick-down which would result in an engine
speed high enough to damage the engine.
Nothing happens if the driver still tries to shift
down in this way at high engine speed – the
original gear remains engaged.
When kick-down is activated the car can
change one or more gears at a time depending on engine speed. The car changes up
when the engine reaches its maximum speed
in order to prevent damage to the engine.

08 Starting and driving
Automatic gearbox - Powershift*
Towing
The Powershift automatic gearbox transmits
the motive force from the engine to the drive
wheels with double mechanical clutch discs,
as opposed to Geartronic which instead uses
a hydraulic torque converter.
The model with Powershift transmission
should not be towed as it is dependent on the
engine running in order to receive sufficient
lubrication. If towing (p. 308) still has to take
place, the route must be as short as possible
and then at very low speed.
In the event of uncertainty as to whether the
car is equipped with Powershift or Geartronic
transmission, this can be verified by checking
the designation on the gearbox label under
the bonnet, Type designations (p. 388). The
designation ”MPS6” means that it is
Powershift transmission - otherwise it is
Geartronic automatic transmission.
See also important information in section
Towing (p. 308).
D: Automatic gear positions. +/–: Manual gear
positions. S: Sport mode*.6
Powershift transmission operates in the same
way and has similar controls and functions as
the Geartronic automatic transmission.
One exception is "Geartronic - Winter mode"

274
Powershift enables driving away on a
slippery road surface if 2nd gear is
engaged manually - instead of 3rd gear
with Geartronic.
To bear in mind
The transmission's double clutch has overload protection that is activated if it becomes
too hot, e.g. if the car is held stationary with
the accelerator pedal on an uphill gradient for
a long time.
Overheated transmission causes the car to
shake and vibrate, and the warning symbol
illuminates and the combined instrument
panel shows a message. The transmission
can also overheat during slow driving in

queues (10 km/h or slower) on an uphill gradient, or with a trailer hitched. The gearbox
cools down when the car is stationary, with
foot brake depressed and the engine running
at idling speed.
Overheating during slow driving in queues
can be avoided by driving in stages:
•
Stop the car and wait with your foot on
the brake pedal until there is a moderate
distance to the traffic ahead, drive forward a short distance, and then wait
another moment with your foot on the
brake pedal.
IMPORTANT
Use the foot brake to hold the car stationary on an uphill gradient - do not hold the
car with the accelerator pedal. The gearbox could then overheat.

ECO*
NOTE
ECO7
is an innovative Volvo function for automatic-gearbox cars, capable of reducing fuel
consumption by up to 5%, depending on the
driver's driving style. The function gives the
driver the option of a more active environmentally conscious way of driving.
General
The following are changed
upon activation of the ECO
function:
When the ECO function is activated, several parameters in the climate control system's settings are changed, and several
electricity consumer functions are
reduced. Certain settings can be reset
manually, but full functionality is only
restored by deactivating the ECO function.
ECO - Operation

then switched off until it is
reactivated with the ECO
button.
Eco Coast - Function

286
The Eco Coast subfunction means in practice
that engine braking is deactivated, meaning in
turn that the car's kinetic energy is used to
coast for longer distances. When the driver
releases the accelerator pedal the gearbox is
automatically disengaged from the engine
whose speed is reduced to idling speed with
minimum consumption.
ECO On/Off
ECO symbol
The ECO function is deactivated when the
engine is switched off, and must therefore be
activated after each time the engine is
started. There are exceptions for certain
engines. However, it is easily verified by
means of both the combined instrument pan-
Not possible on the V40 CROSS COUNTRY AWD.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
This function is intended for use in the event
of an anticipated reduction in speed, e.g. to
coast forward to an intersection or a red light.
Eco Coast enables proactive driving where
the driver can use the so-called "Pulse &
Glide" technique and a minimum of braking.
A combination of Eco Coast and temporarily
deactivated ECO function can also collec-
08 Starting and driving
tively contribute to reduced consumption.
Accordingly:
•
on steep downhill gradients - to be able
to use engine braking.
•
•
before an imminent overtaking manoeuvre - in order to be able to complete it in
the safest possible way.
Active Eco Coast: Long coasting without
engine braking = Low consumption
and
•
Deactivated ECO function: Short coasting
with engine braking = Minimum consumption.
NOTE
However, to achieve optimal low fuel consumption, Eco Coast in combination with
short coasting distances should generally
be avoided.
Activating Eco Coast
Deactivating Eco Coast and returning to
engine braking can be performed as follows:
•
•
Press the ECO button.
•
Change gear with the steering wheel paddle shifters.
•
Actuate the accelerator or brake pedal.
Move the gear lever to manual "S+/-"
position.
Eco Coast - Limitations
The function is not available if:
The function is activated when the accelerator pedal is fully released, in combination with
the following parameters:
•
•
cruise control is activated
•
•
•
•
manual gear changing is performed with
the steering wheel paddle shifters*
•
engine and/or gearbox are not at normal
operating temperature.
•

08 Starting and driving
Foot brake
The foot brake is used to reduce the car's
speed while driving.
The car is equipped with two brake circuits. If
a brake circuit is damaged then the brake
pedal will engage deeper and a higher pressure on the pedal is needed to produce the
normal braking effect.
The driver's brake pedal pressure is assisted
by a brake servo.
WARNING
The brake servo only works when the
engine is running.
If the brake is used when the engine is
switched off then the pedal will feel stiff and
more force must be used to brake the car.
For cars with the Hill start assist (HSA)*
(p. 277)* function, the pedal returns more
slowly than usual to normal position if the car
is parked on a gradient or on an uneven surface.
08
288
In very hilly terrain or when driving with a
heavy load the brakes can be relieved by
using engine braking. Engine braking is most
efficiently used if the same gear is used
downhill as up.
For more general information on heavy loads
on the car, Engine oil - adverse driving conditions (p. 395).
Maintenance
Braking on wet roads
To keep the car as safe and reliable as possible, follow the Volvo service intervals as
specified in the Service and Warranty Booklet.
When driving for a long time in heavy rain
without braking, the braking effect may be
delayed slightly when next using the brakes.
This may also be the case after a car wash. It
is then necessary to depress the brake
harder. For this reason, maintain a greater
distance to the traffic ahead.
New and replacement brake linings and brake
discs only provide optimal brake performance
after a few hundred kilometres after "wearingin". Compensate for the reduced brake performance by depressing the brake pedal
harder. Volvo recommends only fitting brake
linings that are approved for your Volvo.
Brake the car firmly after driving on wet roads
and after a car wash. The brake discs are
then warmed up, dry more quickly and are
protected against corrosion. Take the prevailing traffic situation into account when braking.
Braking on salted roads
When driving on salted roads a layer of salt
may form on the brake discs and brake linings. This may extend braking distance. For
this reason, keep an extra-large safety distance to the vehicle ahead. Also make sure of
the following:
•
Brake occasionally to remove any layer of
salt. Make sure that other road users are
not put at risk by the braking.
•
Gently depress the brake pedal when
driving is finished and before the next
journey starts.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
IMPORTANT
The wear on the brake system's components must be checked regularly.
Contact a workshop for information about
the procedure or engage a workshop to
carry out the inspection - an authorised
Volvo workshop is recommended.

Foot brake - anti-lock braking system
The anti-lock braking system, ABS (Anti-lock
Braking System), prevents the wheels from
locking up during braking.
The function allows the steering ability to be
maintained, and it is easier to swerve to avoid
a hazard for example. Vibration may be felt in
the brake pedal when this is engaged and this
is normal.
A short test of the ABS system is made automatically after the engine has been started
when the driver releases the brake pedal. A
further automatic test of the ABS system may
be made when the car reaches 10 km/h. The
test may be experienced as pulses in the
brake pedal.

Emergency brake lights are activated to alert
vehicles behind about sudden braking. The
function means that the brake light flashes
instead of - as in normal braking - shining with
a constant glow.
Emergency brake lights are activated at
speeds above 50 km/h if the ABS system is
working and/or in the event of sudden braking. After the car's speed has been slowed
below 10 km/h the brake light returns from
flashing to the normal constant glow - while
at the same time the Hazard warning flashers
are activated, and they flash until the driver
accelerates the car to at least 20 km/h or they
are deactivated with their button.

Emergency brake assistance EBA (Emergency
Brake Assist) helps to increase the braking
force and so reduce the braking distance.
EBA detects the driver's braking style and
increases the braking force when necessary.
The brake force can be reinforced up to the
level when the ABS system is engaged. The
EBA function is interrupted when the pressure
on the brake pedal is reduced.
Parking brake
The parking brake holds the car stationary,
when the driver's seat is empty, by mechanically locking/blocking two wheels.
WARNING
Always apply the parking brake when
parking on a slope - leaving the car in
gear, or in P if it has automatic transmission, is not sufficient to hold the car in all
situations.
NOTE
When EBA is activated the brake pedal
lowers slightly more than usual, depress
(hold) the brake pedal as long as necessary. If the brake pedal is released then all
braking ceases.

Driving in water
Fording means that the car is driven through a
water-covered roadway. Fording must be carried out with great caution.
The car can be driven through water at a
maximum depth of 25 cm at a maximum
speed of 10 km/h. Extra caution should be
exercised when passing through flowing
water.
Parking on a hill
During driving in water, maintain a low speed
and do not stop the car. When the water has
been passed, depress the brake pedal lightly
and check that full brake function is achieved.
Water and mud for example can make the
brake linings wet resulting in delayed brake
function.
If the car is parked facing uphill:
•
Clean the electric contacts of the electric
engine block heater and trailer coupling
after driving in water and mud.
•
Do not let the car stand with water over
the sills for any long period of time - this
could cause electrical malfunctions.
When parking the vehicle, always engage 1st
gear (for manual gearbox) or put the gear
selector in position P (for automatic gearbox).
•
Turn the wheels away from the kerb.
If the car is parked facing downhill:

IMPORTANT
Engine damage can occur if water enters
the air filter.
In depths greater than 25 cm, water could
enter the transmission. This reduces the
lubricating ability of the oils and shortens
the service life of these systems.
Damage to any component, engine, transmission, turbocharger, differential or its
internal components caused by flooding,
hydrostatic locking or oil shortage, is not
covered by the warranty.
Overheating
Under special conditions, for example hard
driving in hilly terrain and hot climate, there is
a risk that the engine and drive system may
overheat - in particular with a heavy load.
For information about overheating when driving with a trailer, see Driving with a trailer
(p. 301).
•
Remove any auxiliary lamps from in front
of the grille when driving in hot climates.
•
If the temperature in the engine's cooling
system is too high then a warning symbol
is illuminated and a text message High
engine temperature Stop safely is
shown in the combined instrument panel's information display - stop the car in a
safe way and allow the engine to run at
idling speed for several minutes in order
to cool down.
In the event of the engine stalling in water,
do not try restart - tow the car from the
water to a workshop - an authorised Volvo
workshop is recommended. Risk of engine

Winter driving
For winter driving it is important to perform
certain checks in order to ensure that the car
can be driven safely.
To bear in mind:
Check the following in particular before the
cold season:
•
The engine coolant (p. 398) must contain
50% glycol. This mixture protects the
engine against frost erosion down to
approximately –35 °C. To avoid health
risks, different types of glycol must not be
mixed.
•
The fuel tank must be kept filled to prevent condensation.
•
Engine oil viscosity is important. Oils with
lower viscosity (thinner oils) facilitate starting in cold weather and also reduce fuel
consumption while the engine is cold. For
more information on suitable oils, see
Engine oil - adverse driving conditions
(p. 395).
IMPORTANT
Low viscosity oil must not be used for hard
driving or in hot weather.
•
08
294
The condition of the battery and charge
level must be inspected. Cold weather
places great demands on the battery and
its capacity is reduced by the cold.
•
Use washer fluid (p. 366) to avoid ice
forming in the washer fluid reservoir.
To achieve optimum roadholding Volvo recommends using winter tyres on all wheels if
there is a risk of snow or ice.
Fuel filler flap - Opening/closing
The fuel filler flap can be opened/closed as
follows:
Opening/closing the fuel filler flap
NOTE
The use of winter tyres is a legal requirement in certain countries. Studded tyres
are not permitted in all countries.
Slippery driving conditions
Practise driving on slippery surfaces under
controlled conditions to learn how the car
reacts.
Open the fuel filler flap by slightly pressing in the rear part of the hatch.
Take out the flap.
Close the flap after fuelling.
For a description of locking and unlocking the

Fuel - handling
IMPORTANT
Fuel of a lower quality than that recommended by Volvo must not be used as engine
power and fuel consumption is negatively
affected.
Mixtures of various fuel types or use of
fuels which are not recommended will
invalidate Volvo's guarantees and any supplementary service agreements; this is
applicable to all engines.
WARNING
Always avoid inhaling fuel vapour and fuel
splashing in the eyes.
NOTE
Extreme weather conditions, driving with a
trailer or driving at high altitudes in combination with fuel grade are factors that
could affect the car's performance.
In the event of fuel in the eyes, remove any
contact lenses and rinse the eyes in plenty
of water for at least 15 minutes and seek
medical attention.
Never swallow fuel. Fuels such as petrol
and diesel are highly toxic and could
cause permanent injury or be fatal if swallowed. Seek medical attention immediately
if fuel has been swallowed.
WARNING
Fuel which spills onto the ground can be
ignited.
Switch off the fuel-driven heater before
starting to refuel.
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.

Filling up with fuel (p. 295)
Fuel - diesel
Diesel is used as fuel.
Only use diesel fuel from well-known producers. Never use fuel of dubious quality. Diesel
fuel should fulfil the EN 590 or JIS K2204
standard. Diesel engines are sensitive to contaminants in the fuel, such as metals and a
high volume of sulphur for example.
At low temperatures (-6 °C to -40 °C), a paraffin precipitate may form in the diesel fuel,
which may lead to ignition problems. Special
diesel fuel designed for low temperatures
around freezing point is available from the
major oil companies. This fuel is less viscous
at low temperatures and reduces the risk of
paraffin precipitate.
The risk of condensation in the fuel tank is
reduced if the tank is kept well filled. When
refuelling, check that the area around the fuel
filler pipe is clean. Avoid spilling fuel onto the
paintwork. Wash off any spillage with detergent and water.
IMPORTANT
Diesel fuel must:
•
fulfil the EN 590 and/or SS 155435
standards
•
have a sulphur content not exceeding
10 mg/kg
•
have a maximum of 7 vol % FAME
(Fatty Acid Methyl Ester).
IMPORTANT
Diesel type fuels that must not be used:
•
•
•
•
Special additives
Marine diesel fuel
Heating oil
FAME8 (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) and
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.
Empty tank
The design of the fuel system in a diesel
engine means that if the vehicle runs out of
fuel, the tank may need to be vented in the
workshop in order to restart the engine after
fuelling.
8
Diesel fuel may contain a certain amount of FAME, but further amounts must not be added.

08 Starting and driving
||
Once the engine has stopped due to fuel
starvation, the fuel system needs a few
moments to carry out a check. Do this before
starting the engine, once the fuel tank has
been filled with diesel:
1. Insert the remote control key in the ignition switch and push it in to the end position, see Key positions (p. 76).
2. Press the START button without
depressing the brake and/or clutch pedal.
3. Wait approx. one minute.
4. To start the engine: Depress the brake
and/or clutch pedal and then press the
START button again.
NOTE
Before filling with fuel in the event of fuel
shortage:
•
Stop the car on as flat/level ground as
possible - if the car is tilting there is a
risk of air pockets in the fuel supply.
Draining condensation from the fuel
filter
The fuel filter separates condensation from
the fuel. Condensation can disrupt engine
operation.
08
298
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, see Volvo service
programme (p. 346).
IMPORTANT
Certain special additives remove the water
separation in the fuel filter.

Catalytic converters
The purpose of the catalytic converters is to
purify exhaust gases. They are located close
to the engine so that operating temperature is
reached quickly.
The catalytic converters consist of a monolith
(ceramic or metal) with channels. The channel
walls are lined with a thin layer of platinum/
rhodium/palladium. These metals act as catalysts, i.e. they participate in and 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. For more information, see Fuel
consumption and CO2 emissions (p. 403).
An oxygen sensor monitors the oxygen content of the exhaust gases leaving the engine.
This value is fed into an electronic system
that continuously controls the injectors. The
ratio of fuel to air directed to the engine 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).

The particles in the exhaust gases are collected in the filter during normal driving. Socalled "regeneration" is started in order to
burn away the particles and empty the filter.
This requires the engine to have reached normal operating temperature.
Filter regeneration takes place automatically
and normally takes 10-20 minutes. It may
take a little longer at a low average speed.
Fuel consumption may increase slightly during regeneration.
Regeneration in cold weather
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.
When the filter has become approximately
80% full of particles, a yellow warning triangle
is shown in the combined instrument panel,
and the message Soot filter full See manual
is shown in the information display.
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.
NOTE
The following may arise during regeneration:
•
a smaller reduction of engine power
may be noticed temporarily
•
fuel consumption may increase temporarily
•
a smell of burning may arise.
When regeneration is complete the warning
text is cleared automatically.
Use the parking heater* in cold weather so
that the engine reaches normal operating
temperature more quickly.
IMPORTANT
If the filter is completely filled with particles, it may be difficult to start the engine
and the filter is non-functional. Then there
is a risk that the filter will need to be
replaced.
Economical driving
•
Driving economically means driving smoothly
while thinking ahead and adjusting your driving style and speed to the prevailing conditions.
Drive with the correct air pressure in the
tyres and check this regularly - select
ECO tyre pressure for best results, see
Tyres - approved tyre pressures (p. 407).
•
Choice of tyres can affect fuel consumption - seek advice on suitable tyres from a
dealer.
•
Use the ECO Guide* (p. 66) which indicates how fuel-efficiently the car is being
driven.
•
•
For lowest fuel consumption, activate
ECO* (p. 286)9 which can further reduce
fuel consumption.
Remove unnecessary items from the car the greater the load the higher the fuel
consumption.
•
•
Do not use winter tyres when the winter
season is over.
Use engine braking to slow down, when it
can take place without risk to other road
users.
•
•
Drive in the highest gear possible, adapted to the current traffic situation and
road - lower engine speeds result in lower
fuel consumption. Use the gear shift indicator (p. 270)10.
A roof load and ski box increase air resistance, leading to higher fuel consumption
- remove the load carriers when not in
use.
•
Avoid driving with open windows.
•
Avoid sudden unnecessary acceleration
and heavy braking.
•
High speed results in increased fuel consumption - the wind resistance increases
with speed.
•
Do not run the engine to operating temperature at idling speed, but rather drive
with a light load as soon as possible - a
cold engine consumes more fuel than a
warm one.

08 Starting and driving
Driving with a trailer
When driving with a trailer there are a number
of important points to think about regarding
e.g. the towing bracket, the trailer and how
the load is positioned in the trailer.
Payload depends on the car's kerb weight.
The total of the weight of the passengers and
all accessories, e.g. towbar, reduces the car's
payload by a corresponding weight. For more
detailed information, see Weights (p. 391).
If the towing bracket is mounted by Volvo,
then the car is delivered with the necessary
equipment for driving with a trailer.
•
The car's towing bracket must be of an
approved type.
•
If the towbar is retrofitted, check with
your Volvo dealer that the car is fully
equipped for driving with a trailer.
•
Distribute the load on the trailer so that
the weight on the towing bracket complies with the specified maximum towball
load.
•
Increase the tyre pressure to the recommended pressure for a full load. For information on the tyre pressure, see Tyres approved tyre pressures (p. 407).
•
The engine is loaded more heavily than
usual when driving with a trailer.
•
Do not tow a heavy trailer when the car is
brand new. Wait until it has been driven
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.
•
For safety reasons, the maximum permitted speed for the car when coupled with
a trailer should not be exceeded. Follow
the regulations in force for the permitted
speeds and weights.
•
Maintain a low speed when driving with a
trailer up long, steep ascents.
•
Avoid driving with a trailer on inclines of
more than 12%.
Level control*
The rear shock absorbers maintain a constant
height irrespective of the car's load (up to the
maximum permissible weight). When the car
is stationary the rear of the car lowers slightly,
which is normal.
Trailer weights
For information on Volvo's permitted trailer
weights, see Towing capacity and towball
load (p. 392).
NOTE
The stated maximum permitted trailer
weights are those permitted by Volvo. The
maximum permitted speed for a car with a
trailer attached is 100 km/h. National vehicle regulations may further restrict the
trailer weight and speed. Towbars can be
certified for higher towing weights than the
car can actually tow.
Trailer cable
An adapter is required if the car's towing
bracket has a 13 pin connector and the trailer
has a 7 pin connector. Use an adapter cable
approved by Volvo. Make sure the cable does
not drag on the ground.
Direction indicators and brake lights on
the trailer
If any of the trailer's lamps for direction indicators are broken, the symbol for direction
indicators in the combined instrument panel
flashes faster than normal and the information
display shows the text Trailer indicator
malfunction.
If any of the trailer's lamps for the brake light
are broken then the Trailer brake light
malfunction text is shown.
WARNING
Follow the stated recommendations for
trailer weights. Otherwise, the car and
trailer may be difficult to control in the
event of sudden movement and braking.

Trailer Stability Assist - TSA11
The trailer stability assist TSA (Trailer Stability
Assist) function is designed to stabilise the car
and trailer combination if it begins to snake.
TSA- the function is included in the stability
system (p. 184) ESC12.
Function
The snaking phenomenon can occur with any
car/trailer combination. Snaking normally
occurs at high speeds. But, there is a risk of it
occurring at lower speeds (70-90 km/h) if the
trailer is overloaded or the load is improperly
distributed, e.g. too far back.
In order for snaking to occur, there must be a
triggering factor, e.g.:
•
Car with trailer subjected to a sudden and
powerful side wind.
•
Car with trailer drives on an uneven road
surface or in a pothole.
•
Sweeping steering wheel movements.
Operation
If snaking has started, it could be difficult or
even impossible to suppress. This makes the
car/trailer combination difficult to control and
there is a risk that you could, for example,
end up in the wrong lane or leave the carriageway.
11
12
The trailer stability assist function continually
monitors car movements, particularly lateral
movements. If snaking is detected, the front
wheels are individually braked. This serves to
stabilise the car/trailer combination. This is
often enough to help the driver regain control
of the car.
whether it is the trailer or the driver that is
causing the snaking.
If snaking is not eliminated the first time the
TSA system comes into action, the car/trailer
combination is braked with all wheels and
engine power is reduced. Once snaking has
been gradually suppressed and the car/trailer
combination is once again stable, the TSA
system stops regulating and the driver once
again has full control of the car. For more
information, see Electronic stability control
(ESC) - general (p. 184).

WHEELS AND TYRES
09 Wheels and tyres
09
Tyres - maintenance
New tyres
Amongst other things, the function of the
tyres is to carry load, provide grip on the road
surface, dampen vibration and protect the
wheel from wear.
Driving characteristics
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.
Tyre age
All tyres older than 6 years old should be
checked by an expert even if they seem
undamaged. Tyres age and decompose, even
if they are hardly ever or never used. The
function can therefore be affected. This
applies to all tyres that are stored for future
use. Examples of external signs which indicate that the tyre is unsuitable for use are
cracks or discoloration.
Tyres are perishable. After a few years they
begin to harden at the same time as the friction capacity/characteristics gradually deteriorate. For this reason, aim to get as fresh
tyres as possible when you replace them.
This is especially important with regard to
winter tyres. The last four digits in the
sequence mean the week and year of manufacture. This is the tyre's DOT marking
(Department of Transportation), and this is
stated with four digits, for example 1510. The
tyre in the figure was manufactured in week
15 of 2010.
Summer and winter wheels
When summer and winter wheels are
changed the wheels should be marked with
which side of the car they were mounted on,
for example L for left and R for right.
312
Wear and maintenance
Correct tyre pressure (p. 314) results in more
even wear. Driving style, tyre pressure, climate and road condition affect how quickly
your tyres age and wear. To avoid differences
in tread depth and to prevent wear patterns
(p. 314) arising, the front and rear wheels can
be switched with each other. A suitable distance for the first change is approx. 5000 km
and then at 10000 km intervals. Volvo recommends the an authorised Volvo workshop is
contacted for checking if you are uncertain
about tread depth. If significant differences in
wear (> 1 mm difference in tread depth)
between tyres have already occurred, then
the least worn tyres must always be fitted on
the rear. Understeer is normally easier to correct than oversteer, and leads to the car continuing forwards in a straight line rather than
having the rear end skidding to one side,
resulting in possible complete loss of control
over the car. This is why it is important for the
rear wheels never to lose grip before the front
wheels.
Wheels with tyres fitted must be stored lying
down or hanging up - never standing up.
WARNING
A damaged tyre may lead to loss of control
over the car.

way 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).

Tread wear indicators.
A tread wear indicators is a narrow elevation
across the longitudinal grooves of the tyre's
tread pattern. On the side of the tyre are the
letters TWI (Tread Wear Indicator). When the
tyre's tread depth is down to 1.6 mm, the
tread will be level in height with the tread
wear indicators. Change to new tyres as soon
as possible. Remember that tyres with little
tread depth provide very poor grip in rain and
snow.

Inadequate tyre pressure increases fuel consumption, shortens tyre lifespan and impairs
the car's driving characteristics. Driving on
tyres with tyre pressure that is too low could
result in the tyres overheating and being
damaged. Tyre pressure affects travelling
comfort, road noise and driving characteristics.
NOTE
Tyre pressure decreases over time, this is
a natural phenomenon. Tyre pressure also
varies depending on ambient temperature.
G021830
The air pressure for the tyres should be
checked every month and should be checked
on cold tyres. "Cold tyres" means the tyres
are the same temperature as the ambient
temperature. After several few kilometres of
driving, the tyres warm up and the pressure
increases.
The tyre pressure label on the driver's side
door pillar (between frame and rear door)
shows which pressure the tyres should have
at different loads and speed conditions. This
is also specified in the tyre pressure table.
Tyre pressure for the car's recommended tyre
dimension and information about ECO pressure that results in improved fuel economy
can be found in the printed owner's manual.
NOTE
Temperature differences change the
tyre pressure.
Fuel economy, ECO pressure
In order to obtain optimum fuel economy at
speeds below 160 km/h an ECO pressure is
recommended (applies to both full and light
09 Wheels and tyres
load - see the tyre pressure in the printed

Tyre speed class must at least correspond
with the car's top speed. The table below
indicates the maximum permitted speed that
applies for each speed rating (SS). The only
exception to these conditions is winter
tyres (p. 317) (both those with metal studs
and those without), where a lower speed rating may be used. 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

to all four wheels.
NOTE
Volvo recommends that you consult a
Volvo dealer about which wheel rim and
tyre types are most suitable.

•
Type 3 Lockable wheel nut (steel/
aluminium wheel rim): 110 Nm
Only use rims that are tested and approved
by Volvo and which are Volvo genuine accessories. Check the torque with a torque
wrench.
Studded tyres
Studded winter tyres should be run in gently
for 500-1000 km so the studs settle properly
into the tyres. This gives the tyre, and especially the studs, a longer service life.
NOTE
The legal provisions for the use of studded
tyres vary from country to country.
Tread depth
Road conditions with ice, slush and low temperatures place considerably higher demands
on tyres than summer conditions. Volvo
therefore recommends not to drive on winter
tyres that have a tread depth of less than
4 mm.

Using snow chains
Spare wheel*
Snow chains may only be used on the front
wheels (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.
A spare wheel (Temporary spare) is used to
temporarily replace a punctured normal
wheel.
WARNING
Use Volvo genuine snow chains or equivalent chains designed for the car model,
and tyre and rim dimensions. In the event
of uncertainty Volvo recommends that you
consult an authorised Volvo workshop.
The wrong snow chains may cause serious
damage to your car and lead to an accident.

Changing wheels - removing wheels
(p. 319)
A spare wheel is only intended for use temporarily and must be replaced by an normal
wheel as soon as possible. The car's handling
may be altered by the use of a spare wheel.
The spare wheel is smaller than the normal
wheel. The car's ground clearance is affected
accordingly. Pay attention to high kerbs and
do not machine wash the car. If the spare
wheel is fitted on the front axle, you cannot
use snow chains at the same time. On allwheel drive cars the drive on the rear axle can
be disconnected. The spare wheel must not
be repaired. The correct tyre pressure for the
spare wheel is stated in the tyre pressure
table, Tyres - air pressure (p. 314).
IMPORTANT

2. Select Tyre pressure.
The status is colour-coded for each tyre in
accordance with the following:
•
All-green: the system is operating normally and the tyre pressure in all tyres is

•
Yellow wheel: corresponding tyre's pressure is too low.
•
Red wheel: corresponding tyre's pressure
is very low.

a Volvo dealer or workshop.
NOTE
Clearing warning messages
The TPMS system uses a so-called
compensated pressure value, based
on both tyre temperature and ambient
temperature. This means that the tyre
pressure may differ slightly from the
recommended pressures listed on the
tyre pressure label on the driver's side
door pillar (between front and rear
doors). For this reason, it may be necessary to inflate the tyres to a slightly
higher pressure in order to clear a low
tyre pressure message.
•
To avoid incorrect tyre pressure, the
pressure should be checked on cold
tyres. "Cold tyres" means the tyres are
the same temperature as the ambient
temperature (approx. 3 hours after the
car has been driven). After a few kilometres of driving, the tyres warm up
and the pressure increases.
If a tyre pressure message has been shown
and the TPMS warning lamp has been illuminated:
1. Check the tyre pressure on the indicated
tyre/tyres with a tyre pressure gauge.
2. Inflate the tyre/tyres to the correct pressure in accordance with the tyre pressure
label on the driver's side door pillar
(between front and rear doors).
3. In some cases it may be necessary to
drive the car for a few minutes at a speed
above 30 km/h in order to clear the warning text. At which point, the TPMS warning lamp is extinguished as well.
WARNING
•
Incorrect tyre pressure may lead to
tyre failure, which could result in the
driver losing control of the car.

all or some of its pressure. These tyres are fitted on a special rim. (Normal tyres can also
be fitted to this rim.)
If an SST tyre loses tyre pressure then the
yellow TPMS lamp in the combined instrument panel illuminates and a message is
shown in the information display. If this
occurs, reduce speed to max. 80 km/h. The
tyre must be replaced as soon as possible.
Drive carefully, in some cases it can be difficult to see which tyre is faulty. In order to
establish which tyre needs attention, check
all four tyres.
Tyre pressure monitoring (TPMS)*30 rectifying low tyre pressure
WARNING
After an error message about low tyre
pressure has been shown, do not drive
faster than 80 km/h.
Maximum mileage before tyre replacement
is 80 km.
Avoid hard driving such as sudden braking
or turning.
SST tyres must be replaced if they are
damaged or punctured.

The tyre pressure monitoring system TPMS
(Tyre Pressure Monitoring System)31 warns
the driver when the pressure is too low in one
or more of the car's tyres and indicates the
tyre to which it applies.
Yellow is shown at the first indication of low
tyre pressure, stop and check the tyre pressure as soon as possible.
Red indicates a much lower pressure than
recommended, stop and rectify the tyre pressure immediately.
If a message for low tyre pressure is shown in
the display:
1. Check the tyre pressure on the tyre in
question.
2. Inflate the tyre(s) to the correct pressure.
3. Drive at least at 30 km/h for several
minutes and check that the message disappears.

Tyre pressure monitoring (TM)*33
The TM (Tyre Monitor) system senses the
rotation speed of the tyres in order to determine whether they have the correct tyre pressure. If the pressure is too low, the tyre's
diameter is changed and, as a result, so is the
rotation speed. By comparing the tyres with
each other the system can determine whether
one or more tyres have pressure that is too
low.
The system does not replace normal tyre
maintenance.
Messages
TM calibration
If the tyre pressure is too low then a warning
lamp ( ) illuminates in the combined instrument panel and one of the following messages is shown:
• Tyre pressure low Check front right
tyre
• Tyre pressure low Check front left
tyre
If a fault occurs in the TM system the
warning lamp
in the combined instrument panel will flash for approx. 1 minute
and then illuminate with a constant glow. A
message is also shown in the combined
instrument panel.
In order for TM to work correctly, a reference
value for the tyre pressure must be determined. This must be performed each time the
tyres are changed or the tyre pressure is
changed.
Recalibration
Settings are made using the centre console's
controls, see MY CAR (p. 109).
• Tyre pressure low Check rear right
1. Switch off the ignition.
• Tyre pressure low Check rear left tyre
• Tyre pressure low Check tyres
• Tyre pressure system Service

2. Inflate all tyres to the desired pressure in
accordance with the tyre pressure label
on the driver's side door pillar (between
front and rear doors) and select key position II, see Key positions (p. 76).

5. Start and drive the car.
> Recalibration is carried out while the
car is being driven and can be interrupted at any time. If the engine is
switched off while recalibration is in
progress then it is resumed when the
car is driven again. The system provides no confirmation when the calibration is complete.
The new reference value applies until steps
1-5 are repeated.
NOTE
Remember that the TM system must be
recalibrated at each tyre change or if the
tyre pressure is changed. If new reference
values are not stored then the system cannot function properly.
NOTE
•
After a tyre has been inflated, always
refit the dust cap in order to avoid
damage to the valve from gravel, dirt,
etc.
•
Only use plastic dust caps. Metal dust
caps can rust and become difficult to
unscrew.

System and tyre status
The current status of the system and the tyres
can be checked, see MY CAR (p. 109).
1. Select the menu system MY CAR to open
the menus for tyre monitoring.
2. Select Tyre monitoring.
The status is colour-coded for each tyre in
accordance with the following:
•
All-green: the system is operating normally and the tyre pressure in all tyres is
slightly above the recommended level.
•
Yellow wheel: corresponding tyre's pressure is too low.
•
All wheels yellow: two or more tyres have
pressure that is too low.
•
All wheels grey and the message The
tyre pressure system is currently not
active: the tyre pressure system is temporarily deactivated. It may be necessary
to drive the car for a short time above
30 km/h before the system becomes
active again.
•
All wheels grey and the message Tyre
pressure system Service required: an
error has occurred in the system. Contact
a Volvo dealer or workshop.
Clearing warning messages
If a tyre pressure message has been shown
and the TM warning lamp has been illuminated:
1. Check the tyre pressure in all tyres with a
tyre pressure gauge.
2. Inflate the tyre/tyres to the correct pressure in accordance with the tyre pressure
label on the driver's side door pillar
(between front and rear doors).
3. Recalibrate the TM system.
NOTE
To avoid incorrect tyre pressure, the pressure should be checked on cold tyres.
"Cold tyres" means the tyres are the same
temperature as the ambient temperature
(approx. 3 hours after the car has been
driven). After a few kilometres of driving,
the tyres warm up and the pressure
increases.
Emergency puncture repair*
09
The emergency puncture repair kit,
Temporary Mobility Kit (TMK), is used to seal
a puncture and check and adjust the air pressure.
The recommended tyre pressure is specified
on the tyre pressure label on the driver side
door pillar (between front and rear doors).
The emergency puncture repair kit consists of
a compressor and a bottle of sealant. The
sealing works as a temporary repair. The
sealing fluid bottle must be replaced before
its expiration date and after use. The sealing
fluid effectively seals tyres punctured in the
tread.
NOTE
WARNING
•
Incorrect tyre pressure may lead to
tyre failure, which could result in the
driver losing control of the car.
•
The system cannot indicate sudden
tyre damage in advance.
The emergency puncture repair kit is only
intended for sealing tyres with a puncture
in the tread.
The emergency puncture repair kit has limited
capacity to seal tyres which have punctures
in the wall. Do not seal tyres with the emergency puncture repair kit if they have larger
slits, cracks or similar damage. Connect the
compressor to one of the car's 12 V sockets.
Choose the socket that is nearest to the
punctured tyre.

Jacking points (arrows) for the jack that belongs to the car and lifting points (marked in red).
If the car is raised with a front workshop jack
then this must be positioned under one of the
two lifting points furthest in under the car. If
the car is raised with a rear workshop jack
then it must be positioned under one of the
lifting points. Ensure that the workshop jack
is positioned so that the car cannot slide off
the jack. Always use axle stands or similar.
If the car is raised with a two-pillar workshop
lift then the front and rear lifting arms can be
positioned under the outer lifting points (jacking points). Alternatively, the inner lifting
points can be used at the front.

10 Maintenance and service
When driving under adverse conditions, see
Engine oil - adverse driving conditions
(p. 395).
IMPORTANT
In order to fulfil the requirements for the
engine's service intervals all engines are
filled with a specially adapted synthetic
engine oil at the factory. The choice of oil
has been made very carefully with regard
to service life, starting characteristics, fuel
consumption and environmental impact.
An approved engine oil must be used in
order that the recommended service intervals can be applied. Only use a prescribed
grade of oil for both filling and oil change,
otherwise you will risk affecting service life,
starting characteristics, fuel consumption
and environmental impact.
tain variants have both systems. Contact a
Volvo dealer for more information.
Change the engine oil and oil filter in accordance with the intervals specified in the Service and Warranty Booklet.
Engine oil - checking and filling
The oil level is detected with the electronic oil
level sensor.
10
Using oil of a higher than specified grade is
permitted. If the car is driven in adverse conditions, Volvo recommends using an oil of a
higher grade; see Engine oil - adverse driving
conditions (p. 395).
For filling capacities, see Engine oil - grade
and volume (p. 396).

Engine oil - checking and filling (p. 353)
Volvo Car Corporation disclaims all warranty liability if engine oil of the prescribed
grade and viscosity is not used.
Volvo recommends that oil changes are
carried out at an authorised Volvo workshop.
Volvo uses different systems for warning of
low/high oil level or low oil pressure. Certain
engine variants have an oil pressure sensor,
and then the combined instrument panel's
warning symbol for low oil pressure is used.
Other variants have an oil level sensor, when
the driver is informed via the instrument's
warning symbol
and display texts. Cer}}

IMPORTANT
If notified of low oil level, only fill with the
volume specified, for example, 0.5 litres.
10
NOTE
The system cannot directly detect changes
when the oil is filled or drained. The car
must have been driven approx. 30 km and
have been stationary for 5 minutes with the
engine switched off and on level ground
before the oil level indication is correct.

Measuring the oil level
Coolant - level
If the oil level needs to be checked then it
should be carried out in accordance with the
following sequence.
The coolant cools the internal combustion
engine to the correct operating temperature.
The heat that is transferred from the engine to
the coolant can be used to heat the passenger compartment.
1. Activate key position II; see Key positions
- functions at different levels (p. 77).
2. Rotate the thumbwheel on the left-hand
stalk switch to position Oil level.
> You will then see information displayed
about the engine oil level.
The coolant level must lie between the MIN
and MAX marks on the expansion tank.

•
•
Engine oil - general (p. 352)
Key positions - functions at different levels (p. 77)
For capacities and for standards regarding
water quality; see Coolant - grade and volume (p. 398).
The level must lie between the MIN and MAX
marks on the expansion tank. If the system is
not filled sufficiently, high temperatures could
occur, causing a risk of damage to the
engine.
NOTE
Related information
10
Check the coolant regularly
For more information on menu navigation, see Menu navigation - combined
instrument panel (p. 106).
If the right conditions for measuring the oil
level are not met (time after engine shutdown, the car's inclination, outside temperature, etc.) then the message Not
available will be shown. This does not
mean that there is something wrong in the
car's systems.
WARNING
Coolant can 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.
When topping up the coolant, follow the
instructions on the packaging. Never top up
with water only. The risk of freezing increases
with both too little and too much coolant concentrate.

10 Maintenance and service
IMPORTANT
10
•
A high content of chlorine, chlorides
and other salts may cause corrosion in
the cooling system.
•
Always use coolant with anti-corrosion
agent as recommended by Volvo.
•
Ensure that the coolant mixture is 50%
water and 50% coolant.
•
Mix the coolant with approved quality
tap water. In the event of any doubt
about water quality, used ready-mixed
coolant in accordance with Volvo recommendations.
•
•
356
When changing coolant/replacing
cooling system components, flush the
cooling system clean with approved
quality tap water or flush with readymixed coolant.
The engine must only be run with a
well-filled cooling system. Otherwise,
temperatures that are too high may
occur resulting in the risk of damage
(cracks) in the cylinder head.
Brake and clutch fluid - level
Filling
Brake and clutch fluid level should be
between the reservoir MIN and MAX marks.
Checking the level
Brake and clutch fluid have a common reservoir. The level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks that are visible inside the reservoir. Check the level regularly.

When charging the starter battery or the
support battery (p. 370), only use a modern battery charger with controlled charging voltage. Fast charging function must
not be used since it may damage the battery.
368
IMPORTANT
NOTE
If the following instruction is not observed
then the energy saving function for infotainment system may be temporarily disengaged, and/or the message in the combined instrument panel's information display about the starter battery's state of
charge may be temporarily inapplicable,
following the connection of an external
battery or battery charger:
The life of the battery is shortened if it
becomes discharged repeatedly.
The life of the battery is affected by several
factors, including driving conditions and
climate. Battery starting capacity decreases gradually with time and therefore
needs to be recharged if the car is not
used for a longer time or when it is only
driven short distances. Extreme cold further limits starting capacity.
•
The negative battery terminal on the
car's starter battery must never be
used for connecting an external battery or battery charger - only the car
chassis may be used as the grounding point.
See Jump starting (p. 268) for a description of how the cable clamps must be
attached.
To maintain the battery in good condition,
at least 15 minutes of driving/week is recommended or that the battery is connected to a battery charger with automatic
trickle charging.
A battery that is kept fully charged has a
maximum service life.

NOTE
If the following instruction is not observed
then the Start/Stop function may temporarily cease to work after the connection of
an external battery or battery charger:
If the battery has become so discharged
that everything is "black" and in principle
the car does not have all the normal electrical functions and the engine is subsequently started using an external battery or
battery charger, then the Start/Stop function will be activated. It will then be possible for the engine to be auto-stopped but
in the event of an auto-stop the Start/Stop
function may fail to auto-start the engine
due to inadequate capacity in the battery.
•
(1) Starter battery14 (2) Support battery
The negative battery terminal on the
car's starter battery must never be
used for connecting an external battery or battery charger - only the car
chassis may be used as the grounding point.
See Jump starting (p. 268) for a description of how the cable clamps must be
attached.
10
The battery must first be charged in order
to ensure a successful auto-start after an
auto-stop. At an outside temperature of
+15 °C the battery needs to be charged for
at least 1 hour. At a lower outside temperature a charging time of 3-4 hours is
recommended. The recommendation is
that the battery is charged using an external battery charger.
The support battery normally requires no
more service than the normal starter battery.
A workshop should be contacted in the event
of questions or problems - an authorised
Volvo workshop is recommended.
If this is not possible then the recommendation is to temporarily deactivate the
Start/Stop function until the battery has
been adequately recharged.

Electrical system
Fuses - general
The electrical system is single-pole and uses
the chassis and engine casing as a conductor.
All electrical functions and components are
protected by a number of fuses in order to
protect the car's electrical system from damage by short circuiting or overloading.
The car has a voltage-regulated AC alternator.
The size, type and performance of the starter
battery depend on the car's equipment and
function.
IMPORTANT
If the starter battery is replaced, make sure
you replace it with a battery with the same
cold starting capacity and type as the original battery (see the label on the battery).

Car wash
The car should be washed as soon as it
becomes dirty. Wash the car in a car wash
with oil separator. Use car shampoo.
Handwashing
•
•
•
Remove bird droppings from the paintwork as soon as possible. Bird droppings
contain chemicals that affect and discolour paintwork very quickly. An authorised
Volvo workshop is recommended for the
removal of any discoloration.
Hose down the underbody.
Rinse the entire car until the dissolved dirt
has been removed so as to reduce the
risk of scratches from washing. Do not
spray directly onto the locks.
•
If necessary, use cold degreasing agent
on very dirty surfaces. Note that in this
case, the surfaces must not be hot from
the sun!
•
Wash using a sponge, car shampoo and
plenty of lukewarm water.
•
Clean the wiper blades with a lukewarm
soap solution or car shampoo.
•
Dry the car using a clean, soft chamois or
a water scraper. If you avoid allowing
drops of water to dry in strong sunlight,
you reduce the risk of water drying stains
which may need to be polished out.
WARNING
Always have the engine cleaned by a
workshop. There is a risk of fire if the
engine is hot.
IMPORTANT
Dirty headlamps have impaired functionality. Clean them regularly, when refuelling
for example.
Do not use any corrosive cleaning agents
but use water and a non-scratching
sponge instead.
NOTE
The car must only be washed by hand
over the first few months. This is because
the paint is more delicate when it is new.
10
High-pressure washing
When using high-pressure washing, use
sweeping movements and make sure that the
nozzle does not come closer than 30 cm to
the surface of the car (the distance applies to
all exterior parts). Do not spray directly onto
the locks.
Testing the brakes
NOTE
Outside lighting such as headlamps, fog
lamps and rear lamps may temporarily
have condensation on the inside of the
lens. This is normal, all exterior lighting is
designed to withstand this. Condensation
is normally vented out of the lamp housing
when the lamp has been switched on for a
time.
Automatic car washes
An automatic car wash is a simple and quick
way of washing the car, but it cannot reach
everywhere. Handwashing the car is recommended for achieving optimum results.
WARNING
Always test the brakes after washing the
car, including the parking brake, to ensure
that moisture and corrosion do not attack
the brake linings and reduce braking performance.
Lightly depress the brake pedal now and then
when driving long distances in rain or slush.
The heat from the friction causes the brake
linings to warm up and dry. Do the same
thing after starting in very damp or cold
weather.

10
–
Set the wiper blades to the service position; see Wiper blades (p. 364).
When using degreasant on plastic and
rubber, only rub with light pressure if it is
necessary. Use a soft washing sponge.
NOTE
Polishing glossy trim mouldings could
wear away or damage the glossy surface
layer.
Wash the wiper blades and windscreen
regularly with lukewarm soap solution or
car shampoo.
Polishing agent that contains abrasive
must not be used.
Do not use any strong solvents.
Exterior plastic, rubber and trim
components
A special cleaning agent available from Volvo
dealers is recommended for the cleaning and
care of coloured plastic parts, rubber and trim
components, such as glossy trim mouldings.
When using such a cleaning agent the
instructions must be followed carefully.
Rims
Only use rim cleaning agent recommended
by Volvo.
Strong rim cleaning agents can damage the
surface and cause stains on chrome-plated
aluminium rims.

The car does not need to be polished until it
is at least one year old. However, the car can
be waxed during this time. Do not polish or
wax the car in direct sunlight.
Wash and dry the car thoroughly before you
begin polishing or waxing. Clean off asphalt
and tar stains using tar remover or white spirit. More stubborn stains can be removed
using fine rubbing paste designed for car
paintwork.
Polish first with a polish and then wax with
liquid or solid wax. Follow the instructions on
the packaging carefully. Many preparations
contain both polish and wax.

Rustproofing
Cleaning the interior
The 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. A thin, penetrating
rustproofing fluid was sprayed into the
exposed members, cavities, closed sections
and side doors.
Only use cleaning agents and car care products recommended by Volvo. Clean regularly
and treat stains at once for best results. Vacuuming is important prior to using cleaning
agents.
IMPORTANT
•
The car's anti-corrosion protection does not
normally need to be maintained, but keeping
the car clean always helps to further reduce
the risk of corrosion. Strong alkaline or acidic
cleaning solutions must always be avoided on
the glossy trim components. Any stone chips
should be rectified as soon as they are discovered.
Certain items of coloured clothing (e.g.
dark jeans and suede garments) may
stain the upholstery. If this occurs, it is
important to clean and treat these
parts of the upholstery as soon as
possible.
•
Never use strong solvents such as
washer fluid, pure petrol or white spirit
to clean the interior, since this may
damage the upholstery as well as
other interior materials.

Before work is begun, the car must be clean
and dry and at a temperature above 15 °C.
If the stone chip has not penetrated down
to the meal and an undamaged layer of
paint remains in place, fill in with basecoat
and clearcoat as soon as the surface has
been cleaned.
1. Apply a piece of masking tape over the
damaged surface. Then remove the tape
to remove any loose paint.
Exterior colour code
If the damage is down to the metal, use
of a primer is appropriate. In the event of
damage to a plastic surface, an adhesive
primer should be used to give better
results - spray into the lid of the spray
can and brush on thinly.
Any secondary exterior colour code
It is important that the correct colour is used.

Weights
WARNING
Max. gross vehicle weight, etc. can be read
on a label in the car.
The car's driving characteristics change
depending on how heavily it is loaded and
how the load is distributed.
Kerb weight includes the driver, the fuel tank
90% full and all fluids.
The weight of passengers and accessories,
and towball load (p. 392) (when a trailer is
hitched) influence the load capacity and are
not included in the kerb weight.
11
Permitted max. load = Gross vehicle weight Kerb weight.
NOTE
The documented kerb weight applies to
cars in the standard version - i.e. a car
without extra equipment or accessories.
This means that for every accessory added
the loading capacity of the car is reduced
correspondingly by the weight of the
accessory.
Examples of accessories that reduce loading capacity are the Kinetic/Momentum/
Summum equipment levels, as well as
other accessories such as Towbar, Load
carrier, Space box, Audio system, Auxiliary
lamps, GPS, Fuel-driven engine block
heater, Safety grille, Carpets, Cargo cover,
Power seats, etc.
Weighing the car is a certain way of ascertaining the kerb weight of your own particular car.
For information on label location, see Type designations (p. 388).

Choose a fully synthetic engine oil for adverse
driving conditions. It provides extra protection
for the engine.
Volvo recommends:
IMPORTANT
In order to fulfil the requirements for the
engine's service intervals all engines are
filled with a specially adapted synthetic
engine oil at the factory. The choice of oil
has been made very carefully with regard
to service life, starting characteristics, fuel
consumption and environmental impact.
An approved engine oil must be used in
order that the recommended service intervals can be applied. Only use a prescribed
grade of oil for both filling and oil change,
otherwise you will risk affecting service life,
starting characteristics, fuel consumption
and environmental impact.
Volvo Car Corporation disclaims all warranty liability if engine oil of the prescribed
grade and viscosity is not used.
Volvo recommends that oil changes are
carried out at an authorised Volvo workshop.

Does not apply to the low-emission variant.
This only applies to the low-emissions variant.
Fuel consumption and emission values in the
table above are based on specific EU cycles3,
that apply to cars with kerb weight in the
basic version and without extra equipment.
The car's weight may increase depending on
3
11
equipment. This, as well as how heavily the
car is loaded, increases fuel consumption and
carbon dioxide emissions.
There are several reasons for increased fuel
consumption compared with the table's values. Examples of this are:
Official fuel consumption figures are based on two standardised driving cycles in a laboratory environment ("EU driving cycles") all in accordance with EU Regulation no 692/2008 and 715/2007
(Euro 5 / Euro 6) and UN ECE Regulation no 101. The regulations cover the driving cycles for urban driving and extra-urban driving. - Urban driving - the measurement starts with cold starting the
engine. The driving is simulated. - Extra-urban driving - the car is accelerated and braked at speeds between 0-120 km/h. The driving is simulated. - Cars with manual gearbox are started in 2nd
gear (applies to cars with up to 18-inch wheels). The value for combined driving, which is reported in the table, is a combination of urban driving and extra-urban driving, in accordance with legal
requirements. CO2 emissions - the exhaust gases are collected in order to calculate the carbon dioxide emissions during the two driving cycles. These are then analysed and give the value for
CO2 emissions.

Even a combination of the above-mentioned

refer to the regulations referred to3.
Large deviations in fuel consumption may
arise in a comparison with the EU driving
cycles3 which are used in the certification of
the car and on which the consumption figures
in the table are based.
Consumption is higher and power output
lower for fuel with an octane rating of
