INTRODUCTION
01 Introduction
Reading the owner's manual
A good way of getting to know your new car
is to read the owner's manual, ideally before
your first journey. This will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with new functions, to see how best to handle the car in different situations, and to make the best use of
all the car's features. Please pay attention to
the safety instructions contained in the manual.
The specifications, design features and illustrations in this owner's manual are not binding. We reserve the right to make modifications without prior notice.

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.

Information on the Internet (p. 19)
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 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.
01
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
Dimensions
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.
Heat-reflecting windscreen*
A
65 mm
B
150 mm
C

The windscreen is equipped with a heatreflecting film (IR) that reduces the solar heat
radiation into the passenger compartment.
The positioning of electronic equipment, such
as a transponder, behind a glass surface with
heat-reflecting film may affect its function and
performance.
For the optimal function of electronic equipment, it should be positioned on the part of
the windscreen with no heat-reflecting film
(see the highlighted area in the above illustration).
Change of ownership for cars with
Volvo On Call*
If the car is equipped with Volvo On Call
(VOC) it is important to change the owner of
the service.
VOC is a supplemental service that consists
of safety, security and comfort services. In
the event of change of ownership it is important to change the owner of the service.
Closing the VOC service
Contact a Volvo dealer in the event of change
of ownership in order to close the VOC service.
Starting the VOC service
It is very important that the VOC service
changes owner so that the previous owner's
ability to use services in the car is stopped.
Contact a Volvo dealer in the event of a
change of ownership.

Volvo Cars' environmental philosophy
tured in one of the cleanest and most
resource-efficient plants in the world.
G000000
Your Volvo complies with strict international
environmental standards and is also manufac-
Environmental care is one of Volvo Car Corporation's core values which influence all
operations. We also believe that our customers share our consideration for the environment.
Your Volvo complies with strict international
environmental standards and is also manufactured in one of the cleanest and most
resource-efficient plants in the world. Volvo
Car Corporation has global ISO certification,
which includes the environmental standard
ISO 14001 covering all factories and several
of our other units. We also set requirements
20
for our partners so that they work systematically with environmental issues.
Fuel consumption
Volvo cars have competitive fuel consumption in each of their respective classes. Lower
fuel consumption generally results in lower
emission of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.
It is possible for the driver to influence fuel
consumption. For more information read
under the heading, Reducing environmental
impact.
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.
Clean air in the passenger
compartment
A passenger compartment filter prevents dust
and pollen from entering the passenger compartment via the air intake.
01 Introduction
A sophisticated air quality system, IAQS*
(Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the
incoming air is cleaner than the air in the traffic outside.
The system consists of an electronic sensor
and a carbon filter. The incoming air is monitored continuously and if there is an increase
in the level of certain unhealthy gases such as
carbon monoxide then the air intake is
closed. Such a situation may arise in heavy
traffic, queues and tunnels for example.
The entry of nitrous oxides, ground-level
ozone and hydrocarbons is prevented by the
carbon filter.
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.
Reducing environmental impact
You can easily help reduce environmental
impact - here are a few tips:
•
Avoid letting the engine idle - switch off
the engine when stationary for longer
periods. Pay attention to local regulations.
•
•
Drive economically - think ahead.
•
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.
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
Following this advice can save money, the
planet's resources are saved, and the car's
durability is extended. For more information
and further advice, see Economical driving (p.
300) and Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions (p. 454).
required to guarantee good environmental
care.
Perform service and maintenance in
accordance with the owner's manual's
instructions - follow the intervals recommended in the Service and Warranty
Booklet.
01
Recycling
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.
•
The hip strap must be positioned low
down (not over the abdomen).
•
Tension the hip strap over the lap by pulling the diagonal shoulder belt up towards
the shoulder.
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.
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. 25) seatbelt by means of an
audio and visual reminder (p. 27).
Remember
24
•
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
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.

pressing the OK button.
Seatbelt tensioner
Seatbelts (p. 24) on the driver's side, the passenger side and at the outer rear seats are fitted with seatbelt tensioners. A mechanism in
the seatbelt tensioner tightens the seatbelt in
the event of a sufficiently violent collision. The
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.
The combined instrument panel's information
display shows which seatbelts are in use.
This information is always available.
The audio reminder is speed dependent, and

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.

components, side airbag and sensors. The
side airbags are located in the front seat
backrests.
Front passenger seat, left-hand drive.
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.

WARNING
•
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.
02
•
The protection provided by the car to children
seated in a child seat or on a booster cushion
is not diminished by the side airbag (p. 33).
Inflatable Curtain (IC)
The inflatable curtain helps to prevent the
driver and passengers from striking their
heads on the inside of the car during a collision.
Child seat/booster cushion (p. 44) can be
placed on the front passenger seat provided
that the car does not have an activated airbag
(p. 31) on the front passenger side.

The inflatable curtain IC (Inflatable Curtain) is
a part of the SIPS system (p. 33). It is fitted in
the headlining along both sides of the roof
and protects the car's occupants sitting in the
outer seats. A sufficiently violent collision
trips the sensors and the inflatable curtain is
inflated.
02 Safety
WARNING
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)
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.
02
WARNING
Do not load the car higher than 50 mm
under the top edge of the windows in the
doors. Otherwise, the intended protection
of the inflatable curtain, which is concealed in the headlining, may be compromised.
WARNING
The inflatable curtain is a supplement to
the seatbelts.
Always use a seatbelt.

WARNING
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always use a seatbelt.
02
Properties of the seat
When the WHIPS system is deployed, the
front seat backrests are lowered backward to
alter 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 bodywork of the car could be greatly deformed in a
collision without airbag deployment. A number of factors
such as the rigidity and weight of the object hit, the speed
of the car, the angle of the collision etc. affects how the
different safety systems of the car are activated.
If the airbags (p. 29) have deployed, the following is recommended:
•
Recovering the car. Volvo recommends
that you have it conveyed to an authorised Volvo workshop. Do not drive with
deployed airbags.
•
Volvo recommends that you engage an
authorised Volvo workshop to handle the
replacement of components in the car's
safety systems.
•
Always contact a doctor.
NOTE
The airbags and belt tensioner system are
deployed only once during a collision.
38
WARNING
The airbag system's control module is
located in the centre console. If the centre
console is drenched with water or other
liquid, disconnect the battery cables. Do
not attempt to start the car since the airbags may deploy. Recovering the car.
Volvo recommends that you have it conveyed to an authorised Volvo workshop.
General information on safety mode
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.
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.

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.

* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
02 Safety
NOTE
There may be objects in the traffic environment that prompt a signal to the sensors
that is similar to a collision with a pedestrian. It is possible that the system will be

Eco guide & Power guide*
Instantaneous value
Eco guide and Power guide are two combined instrument panel (p. 60) instruments
which help the driver to drive the car with
optimum driving economy.
The instantaneous value is displayed here the higher the result 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. 124).
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. 61).
Instantaneous value
The instantaneous value is calculated on the
basis of speed, engine speed, engine power
utilised plus use of the foot brake.
Optimum speed (50-80 km/h) and low revs
are encouraged. The pointers fall under
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.
Average value
The average value slowly follows the instantaneous value and describes how the car has
been driven of late. The higher the pointers
on the scale, the better the economy achieved by the driver.
64
Engine power utilised
Available engine power
The smaller, upper pointer shows the available engine power11. The higher the result on
the scale, the more power is available in the
current gear.
Power guide
Engine power utilised
This instrument shows the relationship
between how much power (Power) is being
taken from the engine and how much power
is available.
The larger, lower pointer shows the engine
power utilised11. The higher the result on the
scale, the more power is being taken from the
engine.
To view this function, select the theme
"Performance"; see Digital combined instrument panel - overview (p. 61).
A large gap between the two pointers indicates a large power reserve.
Average value

Available engine power
Power is dependent on engine speed.

Specification
ABL fault
The symbol illuminates if a fault has arisen in
the ABL function (Active Bending Lights).
Emissions system
If the symbol illuminates after the engine has
been started then it may be due to a fault in
the car's emissions system. Drive to a workshop for checking. Volvo recommends that
you seek assistance from an authorised Volvo
workshop.
ABS fault
Stability system
A flashing symbol indicates that the stability
system is operating. If the symbol illuminates
with constant glow then there is a fault in the
system.
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.
Engine preheater (diesel)
This symbol illuminates during engine preheating. Preheating mostly takes place due to
low temperature.
If this symbol illuminates then the system is
not working. The car's regular brake system
continues to work, but without the ABS function.

Range - distance to empty tank
Change unit
The car's trip computer can record, calculate
and show information. It describes information such as average consumption and average speed.
The trip computer shows the approximate
distance that can be driven with the fuel
quantity remaining in the tank.
To change unit (metric/imperial) for distance
and speed - go to MY CAR Settings
System options Distance and fuel units,
see MY CAR - System options (p. 111).
Average
Average fuel consumption is calculated from
the last resetting.
NOTE
There may be a slight error in the reading if
a fuel-driven heater* has been used.
Average speed
The average speed is calculated for the driving distance driven since the last reset to
zero.

The information for current fuel consumption
is updated continuously - approximately once
per second. When the car is driven at low
speed the consumption is shown per time
unit - at a higher speed it is shown related to
mileage.
Different units (km/miles) can be selected for
the display - see the heading "Change unit"

The calculation is based on the average fuel
consumption over the last 30 km and the
remaining driveable fuel quantity.

CLIMATE CONTROL
04 Climate control
General information on climate
control
•
Remove misting on the insides of the windows primarily by using the defroster
function (p. 136). To reduce the risk of
misting, keep the windows clean and use
window cleaner.
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:
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 or driving uphill with a
trailer, the air conditioning can be temporarily switched off. There may then be a
temporary increase in temperature in the
passenger compartment.
•
With an auto-stopped engine (p. 279)
(cars with Start/Stop*), certain equipment
has its function temporarily reduced, e.g.
the climate control system's air conditioning and fan speed.
•
Electronic temperature control (ETC) (p.
132)
•
Electronic climate control (ECC) (p. 131)
04
NOTE
The air conditioning system (AC) 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 on.
Related information
To bear in mind:
•
To ensure that the air conditioning works
optimally, the side windows must be
closed.
•
Total airing function (p. 176) opens or
closes all side windows simultaneously
and can be used for example to quickly
air the car during hot weather.

Actual temperature
The temperature you select in the passenger
compartment corresponds to the physical
experience with reference to factors such as
air speed, humidity and solar radiation etc. in

The system includes a sun sensor (p. 127)
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.

sensors to help control the temperature (p.
126) 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 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.

Air cleaning - passenger
compartment filter
All air entering the car's passenger compartment is cleaned with a filter.
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.
NOTE
There are different types of passenger
compartment filter. Make sure that the correct filter is fitted.

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.
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.
Activate/deactivate the function in the menu
system MY CAR under Settings Climate
settings Interior air quality system.
NOTE
The air quality system IAQS (p. 128) 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.
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.

Air cleaning - IAQS*
The air quality system IAQS separates gases
and particles to reduce the levels of odours
and pollution in the passenger compartment.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
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.

pressing a button on the remote control key,
and also be started without the key being
inserted in the ignition lock. The system
makes it easier and more convenient to open
the car, e.g. when your hands are full.
Both of the car's remote control keys have
Keyless function. It is possible to order more
remote control keys, see Remote control key
with key blade (p. 159).

DRIVER SUPPORT
07 Driver support
Stability and traction control system
(DSTC)
The stability and traction control system,
DSTC (Dynamic Stability & Traction Control),
helps the driver to avoid skidding and
improves the car's traction.
The activation of the 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 and traction control system is
a supplementary function - it cannot handle all situations in all road conditions.
The driver always bears responsibility for
ensuring that the vehicle is driven safely
and that applicable road traffic rules and
regulations are followed.
The system consists of the following functions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
1
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

Corner Traction Control - CTC
CTC 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.

Stability and traction control system
(DSTC) - operation
The stability and traction control system,
DSTC (Dynamic Stability & Traction Control),
helps the driver to avoid skidding and
improves the car's traction.
Selection of level - Sport mode
The stability and traction control system
(DSTC) is always activated - it cannot be
switched off.
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.
If the driver stops a controlled skid by releasing the accelerator pedal then the DSTC system intervenes and stabilises the car.
07
With Sport mode, maximum traction is
obtained if the car has become stuck, or
when driving on a loose surface - e.g. sand or
deep snow.
Proceed as follows to select Sport mode:
1. Press the centre console's MY CAR button and in the display screen's menu system find My V40 DSTC.
186
2. Uncheck the box and back out of the
menu system with EXIT.
> The system then allows a more sporty
driving style.
The Sport mode is active until the driver
deselects it or until the engine is switched off
- after the engine is started the next time the
DSTC system is back in its normal mode
again.

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.

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

Together with the symbol for
the current speed limit, a
sign showing that overtaking
is prohibited may also be
displayed where appropriate.

Examples of additional signs3.
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.
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.
A symbol for additional sign
in the form of an empty

has detected an additional
sign with supplementary
information for the current speed limit.

Function overview10.
Warning lamp - braking by driver required
Steering wheel (p. 77) keypad
Radar sensor (p. 209)
Adaptive cruise control consists of a cruise
control system and a coordinated spacing
system.
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. Cruise control
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 Cruise Control brakes. Do not rest your foot beneath
the brake pedal as it may become trapped.
The adaptive cruise control aims to follow the
vehicle ahead in the same lane according to
11
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
cruise control's set speed. This also happens
if the speed of the vehicle in front exceeds
the cruise control's set speed.
does not brake, then cruise control uses the
warning lamp and warning sound from the
collision warning system (p. 223) in order to
alert the driver that immediate intervention is
required.
NOTE
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.
Warning lamp - braking by driver
required
Adaptive cruise control has a braking
capacity that is equivalent to more than 40%
of the car's braking capacity.
If the car needs to be braked more heavily
than cruise control capacity and the driver
The warning lamp may be difficult to see in
strong sunlight or when wearing sunglasses.
WARNING
Cruise Control warns only 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.

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.
The driver always bears responsibility for
maintaining the correct distance and
speed, even when the adaptive cruise control is being used.
WARNING
Accessories or other objects such as auxiliary lamps must not be fitted in front of the
grille.
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.

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. 223)* these two
systems complement each other.
City Safety™ detects the traffic in front of the
car with a laser sensor (p. 220) 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.

City Safety™ - limitations
The sensor in City Safety™ is designed to
detect cars and other large vehicles in front of
the car irrespective of whether it is day or
night. However, the function has a number of
limitations.
The sensor has poorer functionality - or none
at all - in e.g. heavy snowfall or rain, dense
fog, dust storms or white-out situations. Misting, dirt, ice or snow on the windscreen may
also disrupt the function.
Low-hanging objects, e.g. a flag/pennant for
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.
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.
NOTE
•
Keep the windscreen surface in front
of the laser sensor (p. 220) free from
ice, snow and dirt. For an illustration of
sensor location, see City Safety™ function (p. 217).
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 ABS and DSTC systems will provide best possible braking force
with maintained stability.
•
When your own car is reversing, City Safety™
is temporarily deactivated.
Do not affix or mount anything on the
windscreen in front of the laser sensor
•
Remove ice and snow from the bonnet
- snow and ice must not exceed a
height of 5 cm.

Fault tracing and action
IMPORTANT
If the message (p. 222) Windscreen
sensors blocked See manual is shown in
the combined instrument panel it indicates
that the laser sensor is blocked and cannot
detect vehicles in front of the car. This means
that City Safety™ is not operational.
If there are cracks, scratches or stone
chips in the windscreen in front of either of
the laser sensor's "windows" and they
cover a surface of approx. 0.5 x 3.0 mm
(or larger), then a workshop must be contacted for replacement of the windscreen an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended. For an illustration of sensor location, see City Safety™ - function (p. 217).
The Windscreen sensors blocked See
manual message is not shown for all situations in which the laser sensor is blocked.
The driver must therefore be diligent about
keeping the windscreen and area in front of
the laser sensor clean.
Failure to take action may result in
reduced performance for City Safety™.
07
Action
The windscreen surface in front of the
laser sensor is dirty or
covered with ice or
snow.
Clean the windscreen surface in
front of the sensor
from dirt, ice and
snow.
The laser sensor field

Remove the
blocking object.
The City Safety™ function includes a sensor
which transmits laser light. Contact a qualified
workshop in the event of a fault or if the laser
sensor needs servicing - an authorised Volvo
workshop is recommended. It is absolutely
essential to follow the prescribed instructions
when handling the laser sensor.
The following two labels relate to the laser

Collision warning system*
"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, bicycle or vehicle in
front that are stationary or moving in the same
direction.
Collision Warning with Auto Brake & 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.
Collision Warning with Auto Brake & Pedestrian Detection is designed to be activated as
late as possible in order to avoid unnecessary
intervention.

warned18
The driver is merely
of occurring
obstacles by means of visual and acoustic
signals - no automatic braking intervenes, the
driver must himself brake.
Level 2
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.
IMPORTANT
Maintenance of components included in
Collision Warning with Auto Brake &
Pedestrian Detection must only be carried
out in a workshop - an authorised Volvo
workshop is recommended.
Collision Warning with Auto Brake & Pedestrian Detection may prevent a collision or
reduce the collision speed.
Collision Warning with Auto Brake & Pedestrian Detection must not be used as an
excuse for the driver to change his/her driving

assist the driver when there is a risk of colliding with a pedestrian, bicycle or vehicle in
front that are stationary or moving in the same
direction.
The collision warning system and City
Safety™ (p. 217) complement each other.
The automatic brake function is activated
last.
1 - Collision warning
The driver is first warned of a potentially
imminent collision.
The collision warning system detects pedestrians, stationary vehicles as well as vehicles
driving in the same direction in front of the
car.
If there is a risk of collision with a pedestrian
or a vehicle then the driver's attention is
attracted with a flashing red warning signal
and an acoustic signal.

20
224
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.
NOTE: The illustration is schematic - details may vary depending on car model.
With system Level 2 only.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
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.

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.
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

assist the driver when there is a risk of colliding with a pedestrian, bicycle or vehicle in
front that are stationary or moving in the same
direction.
Warnings and brake interventions for
pedestrians and cyclists do not work in
darkness and tunnels - not even when
streetlights are lit.
The auto-brake function can prevent a collision or reduce collision speed. To ensure
full brake performance, the driver should
always depress the brake pedal - even
when the car auto-brakes.
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.
Optimum examples of what the system interprets
as a cyclist - with clear body and bicycle contours, directly from behind and in the car's centre line.
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.

The warning lamp, see Collision warning system - function (p. 224), is tested every time
the engine is started by briefly illuminating the
warning lamp's separate points of light if the
collision warning system's light and acoustic
warnings are activated.
Audible signal
The warning sound can be activated/deactivated separately:
•
Warning signals On and Off
It is possible to select whether the collision
warning system's acoustic and visual warning
signals should be switched on or off.
When starting the engine, the setting that was
selected when the engine was switched off is
obtained automatically.

Warning distance
The warning distance determines the system's sensitivity. Warning distance Long provides an earlier warning. First test with Long
and if this setting produces too many warnings, which could be perceived as irritating in
certain situations, then change to warning
distance Normal.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Only use warning distance Short in exceptional cases, e.g. for dynamic driving.
NOTE
When the adaptive cruise control is in use
the warning lamp and warning sound will
be used by the cruise control even if the
collision warning system is switched off.
The collision warning system warns the
driver in the event of a risk of a collision,
but the function cannot shorten driver
reaction time.
In order for the collision warning system to
be effective, always drive with Distance
Alert (p. 214) set at time interval 4–5.
NOTE
Even if the warning distance has been set
to Long warnings could be perceived as
being late in certain situations, e.g. when
there are large differences in speed or if
vehicles in front brake heavily.
WARNING
No automatic system can guarantee
100 % correct function in all situations.
Therefore, never test Collision Warning
with Auto Brake by driving at people or
vehicles - this may cause severe damage
and injury and risk lives.

WARNING
The visual warning signal can be temporarily disengaged in the event of high passenger compartment temperature caused by
strong sunlight for example. If this occurs
then the warning sound is activated even if
it is deactivated in the menu system.
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 cyclists23 - 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 may not appear if the distance to the vehicle in front is small or
if steering wheel and pedal movements are large, e.g. a very active driving style.
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).
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).
07
23
230
For cyclists, the warning and full brake intervention may come very late or simultaneously.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Collision Warning with Auto Brake is temporarily deactivated with reverse gear engaged.
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.
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.

"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, bicycle or vehicle in
front that are stationary or moving in the same

The function uses the car's camera sensor,
which has certain limitations.
The car’s camera sensor is also used - as
well as by Collision Warning with Auto Brake
- by the functions:
•
•
•
•
Active high beam (p. 83)

fog for example. Under such conditions the
functions of camera-dependent systems
could be significantly reduced or temporarily
disengaged.
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
approx. 15 minutes after the engine is started
in order to protect camera functionality.

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

Driver Alert System*
Driver Alert Control (DAC)*
Driver aid status
The Driver Alert System is intended to assist
drivers whose driving ability is deteriorating or
who are inadvertently leaving the lane they are
driving on.
DAC is intended to attract the driver's attention when he/she starts to drive less consistently, e.g. if he/she becomes distracted or
starts to fall asleep.
The Driver Alert System consists of different
functions which can either be switched on at
the same time or individually:
The objective for DAC is to detect slowly
deteriorating driving ability and it is primarily
intended for major roads.
•
Driver Alert Control (DAC)* - operation (p.
236).
•
Lane keeping assistant - operation (p.
241).
A switched-on function is set in standby
mode and is not activated automatically until
speed exceeds 65 km/h.
The function is deactivated again when speed
decreases to below 60 km/h.
The functions use a camera which is dependent on the lane having side markings painted
on each side.
WARNING
Driver Alert System 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.
The current status for all driver aids can be
checked in MY CAR (p. 106).

Lane Keeping Aid*
Lane keeping assistant - function
WARNING
The lane keeping assistant is one of the functions in the Driver Alert System - sometimes
also referred to as LKA (Lane Keeping Aid).
The lane keeping assistant is intended for use
on motorways and similar major roads to
reduce the risk of the vehicle accidentally
leaving its own lane in certain situations.
LKA is merely a driver's aid and does not
engage in all driving situations or traffic,
weather or road conditions.
Off & On
The driver always bears ultimate responsibility for ensuring that the vehicle is driven
safely and that applicable laws and road
traffic regulations are followed.
The Lane Keeping Aid is active within the
speed interval 65-200 km/h on roads with
clearly visible side lines. The function is temporarily deactivated on narrow roads with
less than 2.6 metres between the lane side
lines.
Related information
A camera reads the painted side lines of the
road/lane. If the car is about to cross a side
line, the Lane Keeping Aid actively steers the
car back into the lane with slight steering torque in the steering wheel.
If the car reaches or passes a side line, the
Lane Keeping Aid warns the driver with pulsing vibrations in the steering wheel.

If the vehicle passes a side line, the Lane
Keeping Aid warns the driver with pulsing
vibrations in the steering wheel. This occurs
regardless of whether the car is actively
steered back by applying a slight steering torque.

The figure shows 3 pulsing vibrations when the side line is passed.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
In certain cases, the Lane Keeping Aid allows
the car to cross side lines without engaging
active steering or warning with pulsing vibrations in the steering wheel. Using an adjacent
lane for dynamic cornering when there is a
clear line of vision is an example of one such
case.

In order for Lane Keeping Aid to operate, the
driver must have his/her hands on the steering wheel. LKA continual monitors this. If
hands are not detected on the steering wheel,
a text message encouraging the driver to
actively steer the car is shown.

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
CTA25.
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.

Park Assist Pilot (PAP)* - operation
The Park Assist Pilot (PAP – Park Assist Pilot)
helps the driver to park by first checking
whether a space is sufficiently large and then
turning the steering wheel and steering the
car into the space.
The driver is instructed about how PAP works
by means of simple, clear instructions in the
combined instrument panel - using both
graphics and text graphics and text message
(p. 257).
Principle for PAP.
The PAP function parks the car using the following steps:
1. The function searches for a parking space
and measures it (A & B (p. 254)). During
measurement, speed must not
exceed 30 km/h.
2. The car is steered into the space while
reversing (C & D (p. 255)).
NOTE
Remember that certain steering wheel
positions may obstruct the combined
instrument panel's instructions when you
turn it during the parking manoeuvre.
1 - Searching and checking
measurements
3. The car is straightened up in the space by
driving back and forth (E & F (p. 255)).

Proceed as follows:
1. Activate PAP by pressing
this button and do not drive
faster than 30 km/h.
2. Keep an eye on the combined instrument
panel and be prepared to stop the car
when the graphics and text message so
request.
3. Stop the car when the graphics and text
so request.
NOTE
PAP searches the area for a parking
space, displays instructions and guides
the car in on its passenger side. But if
required the car can also be parked on the
driver's side of the street:
•
Activate the direction indicator for the
driver's side - the car is then parked
on that side of the street instead.
07 Driver support
2 - Reversing in
NOTE
•
During the Reversing step, PAP will steer the
car into the parking space. Proceed as follows:
Keep your hands away from the steering wheel when the PAP function is
activated.
•
Make sure that the steering wheel is
not hindered in any way and can rotate
freely.
•
To achieve optimum results - wait until
the steering wheel is fully turned
before starting to drive backward/
forward.
3 - Straightening up
1. Engage first gear or D position, wait until
the steering wheel has been turned, then
drive slowly forwards.
2. Stop the car when the graphics and text
message so request.
3. Engage reverse gear and drive backwards slowly until the graphics and text
message tell you to stop.
The function is disengaged automatically
when parking is complete, and the graphics
and text message show that parking is complete. It may be necessary for the driver to
correct the positioning. Only the driver can
determine whether the car is properly parked.
IMPORTANT
The warning distance is shorter when the
sensors are used by Active Park Assist
compared with when Park Assist uses the
sensors.
1. Check that the area behind the car is
clear, then engage reverse gear.
2. Reverse slowly and carefully without
touching the steering wheel - and no
faster than approx. 7 km/h.

Park Assist Pilot (PAP)* - limitations
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.
The PAP sequence is stopped:
Examples of such sources include horns,
wet tyres on asphalt, pneumatic brakes
and exhaust noises from motorcycles etc.
•
if the car is driven too quickly - above
7 km/h
•
•
if the driver touches the steering wheel
if the ABS or DSTC function is enabled e.g. if a wheel loses grip on a slippery
road surface.
A text message indicates where the PAP
sequence was stopped.
NOTE
Dirt, ice and snow covering the sensors
will reduce their function and may prevent
measurement.
To bear in mind
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.

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,
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 tyres26 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.

CTA (Cross Traffic Alert)*
CTA (Cross Traffic Alert) is a driver aid
intended to warn about crossing traffic when
the car is reversing. CTA is a supplement to
BLIS (p. 257).
Activate/deactivate CTA
CTA is activated when the engine is started.
This is confirmed by the indicator lamps in
the door panels flashing once.
In cars equipped with parking assistance (p.
245), the CTA function can be deactivated/
activated with the parking assistance On/Off
button.
CTA function is then deactivated. BLIS
remains activated.
WARNING
CTA is a supplementary aid and does not
work in all situations.
CTA is no substitute for a safe driving style
and the use of rearview and door mirrors.
CTA can never replace the driver's responsibility and attention - it is always the driver's responsibility to reverse in a safe manner.
When CTA operates
CTA is primarily designed to detect vehicles.
In favourable conditions, it may also be able
to detect smaller objects, such as cyclists
and pedestrians.
CTA is only active during reversing and is
activated automatically when reverse is
selected at the gearbox.
•
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.
•
An additional warning is provided in the
form of an illuminated icon in the display
screen's PAS graphics (p. 245).
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.

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 certain
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. The
framed number indicates the current gear.

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.
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 111.
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
Related information
•
•
Automatic gearbox - Powershift* (p. 276)
Transmission fluid - grade and volume (p.
450)
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.
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.

Automatic gearbox - Powershift*
An automatic gearbox with Powershift differs
from an automatic gearbox with Geartronic (p.
273), in that it has double mechanical clutch
discs.
D: Automatic gear positions. +/–: Manual gear
positions. S: Sport mode*.12
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 conventional hydraulic torque converter.
08
Powershift transmission operates in the same
way and has similar controls and functions as
the Geartronic automatic transmission. One
exception is Geartronic's Winter mode, see
Automatic gearbox - Geartronic* (p. 273).
12
276
Powershift enables driving away on a slippery
road surface if 2nd gear is engaged manually
instead of 3rd gear (Geartronic).
Powershift or Geartronic
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 still has to take place,
the route must be as short as possible and
then with very low speed.
In the event of uncertainty as to whether or
not the car is equipped with Powershift transmission, this can be verified by checking the
designation on the gearbox label under the
bonnet - see Type designations (p. 438). The
designation ”MPS6” means that it is
Powershift transmission - otherwise it is
Geartronic automatic transmission.
To bear in mind
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 transmission
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.
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.
For important information regarding
Powershift transmission, see Towing (p. 308).
Overheated transmission causes the car to
shake and vibrate, and the warning symbol
illuminates and the combined instrument
In some situations the combined instrument

08 Starting and driving
All Wheel Drive (AWD)*
Hill Descent Control (HDC)
All Wheel Drive (AWD – All Wheel Drive)
means that the car is driven by all four wheels.
All-wheel drive is always engaged.
HDC can be compared to an automatic
engine brake. When you release the accelerator on downhill gradients the car is normally
braked by means of the engine striving for low
engine idling speeds, so-called engine braking. But the steeper the road and the more
load there is in the car, the faster the car rolls
despite engine braking. In order to then
reduce speed the driver has to assist using
the footbrake.
WARNING
HDC 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.
Function
General
AWD principle13.
The power is automatically distributed
between the front and rear wheels. An electronically controlled clutch system distributes
the power to the wheels that have the best
grip on the current road surface. This provides the best traction and prevents wheel
spin. Under normal driving conditions, the
majority of power is transmitted to the front
wheels.
All-wheel drive improves driving safety in rain,
snow and icy conditions.
The function makes it possible to increase/
reduce speed on steep downhill gradients,
with a foot only on the accelerator pedal,
without using the footbrake. The sensitivity of
the accelerator pedal decreases and
becomes more precise by means of the full
actuation of the pedal being restricted to
adjusting engine speed within a limited range.
The brake system brakes itself and provides
the car with a low and even speed, so allowing the driver to fully focus on steering.
HDC is particularly helpful on steep gradients
with an uneven road surface and slippery
sections. E.g. when launching a boat on a
trailer from a ramp.
08
13
288
The figure is schematic - details may vary depending on market and model.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
HDC is engaged or disengaged using a
switch on the centre console. An indicator
lamp in the button illuminates when the function is switched on.
When HDC is working normally the
combined instrument panel's symbol
illuminates combined with the text message
Hill descent control ON.
08 Starting and driving
The function only operates in first gear position and in reverse gear. For an automatic
gearbox, gear position 1 must be selected,
which is shown with the figure 1 in the combined instrument panel; see Automatic gearbox - Geartronic* (p. 273).
NOTE
HDC cannot be activated on an automatic
gearbox in position D.
Operation
HDC allows the car to roll at a maximum of
10 km/h forwards with engine braking and
7 km/h backwards. However, any speed
within the gear's speed register can be
selected using the accelerator pedal. When
the accelerator pedal is released, the car is
braked quickly to 10 or 7 km/h respectively,
irrespective of the hill's gradient and without
the need for the footbrake.
The brake lights come on automatically when
the function is operating. The driver can brake
or stop the car at any time by using the footbrake.
HDC is deactivated:
•
with the on/off button on the centre console
•
if a gear higher than 1 is selected on a
manual gearbox
•
if a gear higher than 1 is selected on an
automatic gearbox, or if the gear selector
is moved to position D.
The function can be disengaged at any time.
If it takes place on a steep downhill gradient
then the braking effect will not release
directly, but slowly instead.
NOTE
With HDC activated you may experience a
delay between acceleration pedal activation and engine response.
Foot brake
The foot brake is used to reduce the car's
speed while driving.
The car is equipped with two brake circuits. If
one brake circuit is damaged then this will
mean that the brakes engage at a deeper
level and harder 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.
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, see Engine oil - adverse driving
conditions (p. 446).
Cleaning the brake discs
Coatings of dirt and water on the brake discs
may result in delayed brake function. This
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.

delay is minimised by cleaning the brake linings.
Manual cleaning is advisable with wet road
surfaces, prior to long-stay parking and after
the car has been washed. Carry this out by
braking gently during a short period while en
route.
Maintenance
To keep the car as safe and reliable as possible, follow the Volvo service intervals as
specified in the Service and Warranty Booklet.
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 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.

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.

Driving in water
IMPORTANT
Fording means that the car is driven through a
water-covered roadway. Fording must be carried out with great caution.
Engine damage can occur if water enters
the air filter.
In depths greater than 30 cm, water could
enter the transmission. This reduces the
lubricating ability of the oils and shortens
the service life of these systems.
The car can be driven through water at a
maximum depth of 30 cm at a maximum
speed of 10 km/h. Extra caution should be
exercised when passing through flowing
water.
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.
•
•
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.
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
breakdown.
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 temp 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.
•
If the text message High engine temp
Stop engine or Coolant level low, Stop
engine is shown then the engine must be
switched off after stopping the car.

08 Starting and driving
Before a long journey
Winter driving
Before a long journey, it makes good sense to
go through the following points:
For winter driving it is important to perform
certain checks in order to ensure that the car
can be driven safely.
•
Check that the engine is working normally
and that fuel consumption (p. 454) is normal.
•
Make sure that there are no leaks (fuel, oil
or other fluid).
•
•
Check all bulbs and tyre tread depths.
Check the following in particular before the
cold season:
Carrying a warning triangle (p. 323) is a
legal requirement in certain countries.

•
•
Engine oil - checking and filling (p. 337)
Spare wheel* (p. 317)
Lamp replacement (p. 342)
•
Use washer fluid (p. 351) 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.
To bear in mind:
•
places great demands on the battery and
its capacity is reduced by the cold.
The engine coolant (p. 449) must contain
at least 50% glycol. This mixture protects
the engine against frost erosion down to
approximately –35 °C. To achieve optimum antifreeze protection, 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.
446).
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.
IMPORTANT
Low viscosity oil must not be used for hard
driving or in hot weather.
•
The condition of the battery and charge
level must be inspected. Cold weather

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.

Fuel - diesel
Petrol is used as fuel.
Diesel is used as fuel.
Petrol must fulfil the EN 228 standard. Most
engines can be run with octane ratings of 95
and 98 RON. Only in exceptional cases
should 91 RON be used.
Only use diesel fuel from well-known producers. Never use diesel of dubious quality. Diesel should fulfil the EN 590 or JIS K2204
standards. Diesel engines are sensitive to
contaminants in the fuel, such as excessively
high volumes of sulphur particles for example.
•
•
95 RON can be used for normal driving.
98 RON is recommended for optimum
performance and minimum fuel consumption.
When driving in temperatures above +38 °C,
fuel with the highest possible octane rating is
recommended for optimum performance and
fuel economy.
IMPORTANT
•
Use only unleaded petrol to avoid
damaging the catalytic converter.
•
Do not use any additives which have
not been recommended by Volvo.
Related information

•
Filling up with fuel (p. 296)
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
Only ever use fuel that fulfils the European
diesel standard.
The sulphur content must be a maximum
of 50 ppm.

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.
Diesel fuel may contain a certain amount of FAME, but further amounts must not be added.
IMPORTANT
Diesel type fuels that must not be used:
•
•
•
•
Special additives
Marine diesel fuel
Heating oil
FAME14 (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.
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. 71).
2. Press the START button without
depressing the brake and/or clutch pedal.
08 Starting and driving
3. Wait approx. 1 minute.
Filling with fuel - with a fuel can
Diesel particle filter (DPF)
4. To start the engine: Depress the brake
and/or clutch pedal and then press the
START button again.
When filling with fuel (p. 296) from a fuel can,
use the funnel located under the floor hatch in
the cargo area.
Diesel cars are equipped with a particle filter,
which results in more efficient emission control.
Take care to insert the funnel properly into
the filler pipe. The filler pipe consists of two
opening covers. The funnel must be pushed
past both covers before filling is started.
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.
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.
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. 332).
IMPORTANT
Certain special additives remove the water
separation in the fuel filter.

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

approximately 20 minutes more.
NOTE
The following may arise during regeneration:
Economical driving
Driving economically means driving smoothly
while thinking ahead and adjusting your driving style and speed to the prevailing conditions.
•
a smaller reduction of engine power
may be noticed temporarily
•
•
Avoid driving with open windows.
•
fuel consumption may increase temporarily
•
•
a smell of burning may arise.
Avoid sudden unnecessary acceleration
and heavy braking.
•
Drive with the correct air pressure in the
tyres and check it regularly - select ECO
tyre pressure for best results, see Tyres approved tyre pressures (p. 455).
•
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. 272)15.
•
Remove unnecessary items from the car the greater the load the higher the fuel
consumption.
•
Use engine braking to slow down, when it
can take place without risk to other road
users.
•
Choice of tyres can affect fuel consumption - seek advice on suitable tyres from a
dealer.
•
A roof load and ski box increase air resistance, leading to higher fuel consumption
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.

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 corresponding weights (p. 441).
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 air pressure (p. 322) for a full
load.
•
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 %.
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. 442).
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 Bulb fail - Ind. signal

Trailer Stability Assist - TSA
The trailer stability assist TSA (Trailer Stability
Assist) function is to stabilise the car and
trailer combination if it begins to snake.
The TSA function is part of the DSTC system
(Dynamic Stability and Traction Control), see
Stability and traction control system (DSTC)
(p. 185).
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.
TSA system 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.
Related information
•
Stability and traction control system
(DSTC) - symbols and messages (p. 187)
•
Stability and traction control system
(DSTC) - operation (p. 186)
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.
Miscellaneous
The TSA system can engage within the speed
interval 65-160 km/h.
NOTE
TSA function is switched off if the driver
selects Sport mode, see Stability and
traction control system (DSTC) (p. 185).
TSA may fail to engage if the driver uses
severe steering wheel movements to try to
rectify the snaking because in such a situation the TSA system cannot determine
whether it is the trailer or the driver that is
causing the snaking.
The DSTC symbol in the combined
instrument panel flashes when the
TSA system is working.

only be switched between front and rear
positions, never between left and right-hand
sides, or vice versa. If the tyres are fitted
incorrectly, the car's braking characteristics
and capacity to force rain and slush out of the
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).

Tyres - maintenance
Amongst other things, the function of the
tyres is to 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.
09 Wheels and tyres
New tyres
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 tyres
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.
Wear and maintenance
Correct tyre pressure (p. 322) 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 that you contact an authorised Volvo
workshop 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, the
least worn tyres must always be placed 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.

Jack
Winter tyres
Using snow chains
A jack is used to raise the car, e.g. when
changing the tyres.
Winter tyres are tyres that are adapted for
winter road conditions.
The original jack should only be used for
changing to the spare wheel. The jack's
thread must always be well greased.
Winter tyres
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.

•
•
Warning triangle (p. 323)
Emergency puncture repair* (p. 324)
Volvo recommends winter tyres with particular dimensions. Tyre dimensions are dependent on engine variant. When driving on winter
tyres, the correct type of tyres must be fitted
to all four wheels.
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.
NOTE
Volvo recommends that you consult a
Volvo dealer about which wheel rim and
tyre types are most suitable.
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.

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
than4 mm.

Tyres - speed ratings
WARNING
Each tyre can withstand a certain maximum
speed and therefore belongs to a particular
speed rating (SS - Speed Symbol).
Tyre speed class must at least correspond
with the car's top speed. Minimum speed rating is indicated in the speed rating table
below. The only exception to these conditions
is winter tyres (p. 315) (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 driven at a maximum of
160 km/h). Traffic regulations determine how
fast a car can be driven, not the speed rating
of the tyres.
NOTE
The car must be fitted with tyres which
have the same or a higher load index (p.
316) (LI) and speed rating (SS) than specified. If a tyre with too low a load index or
speed rating is used, it may overheat.

The air pressure (p. 455) for the tyres must
be checked every month. Check air pressure
with 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. Inadequate tyre pressure increases
fuel consumption, shortens tyre lifespan and
impairs the car's roadholding. 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 steering characteristics.
NOTE
Tyre pressure decreases over time, this is
a natural phenomenon. Tyre pressure also
varies depending on ambient temperature.

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.
texts. Certain 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
Depending on engine variant the oil level is
checked with the dipstick or 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. 446).

Coolant - level
10
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.
The coolant level must lie between the MIN
and MAX marks on the expansion tank.
Checking the level and topping up
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.
For capacities and for standards regarding
water quality; see Coolant - grade and volume (p. 449).
IMPORTANT
•
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.
•
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.
Check the coolant regularly
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.
When topping up the coolant, follow the
instructions on the packaging. It is important
that the mixture of coolant concentrate and
water is correct for the prevailing weather
conditions. Never top up with water only. The
risk of freezing increases with both too little
and too much coolant concentrate.

Washer fluid - filling
Starter battery
Washer fluid is used for cleaning the headlamps and windows. Washer fluid with antifreeze must be used during winter.
The service life and function of the battery is
influenced by factors such as the number of
starts, discharging, driving style, driving conditions, climatic conditions etc.
Related information
•
10
The starter battery is a traditional 12 V battery.
Washer fluid - filling (p. 351)
•
Never disconnect the battery when the
engine is running.
•
Check that the cables to the battery are
correctly connected and properly tightened.
WARNING
•
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.
The windscreen and headlamp washers share
a common reservoir.
IMPORTANT
Use washer fluid with antifreeze during the
winter to avoid freezing in the pump, reservoir and hoses.
For capacities, see Washer fluid - quality and
volume (p. 451).

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. 270) 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.

10 Maintenance and service
NOTE
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.
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.
If this is not possible then the recommendation is to temporarily deactivate the
Start/Stop function until the battery has
been adequately recharged.

Fuses - general
Location, fuse boxes
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.
10
If an electrical component or function does
not work, it may be because the component's
fuse was temporarily overloaded and failed. If
the same fuse fails repeatedly then there is a
fault in the circuit. Volvo recommends that
you visit an authorised Volvo workshop for
checking.
Changing
1. Look in the fuse diagram to locate the
fuse.

Car washing
10
WARNING
The car should be washed as soon as it
becomes dirty. Wash the car in a car wash
with oil separator. Use car shampoo.
Always have the engine cleaned by a
workshop. There is a risk of fire if the
engine is hot.
Do not use any strong solvents.
Washing by hand
•
•
•
•
IMPORTANT
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Wiper blades
Asphalt, dust and salt residue on wiper
blades, as well as insects, ice etc. on the
windscreen, impair the service life of wiper
blades.
For cleaning:
–
364
NOTE
Wash the wiper blades and windscreen
regularly with lukewarm soap solution or
car shampoo.
Set the wiper blades to the service position; see Wiper blades (p. 349).
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.
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.
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.
10 Maintenance and service
Testing the brakes
IMPORTANT
Avoid waxing and polishing on plastic and
rubber.
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.
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.
When using degreasant on plastic and
rubber, only rub with light pressure if it is
necessary. Use a soft washing sponge.
Polishing glossy trim mouldings could
wear away or damage the glossy surface
layer.
Polishing agent that contains abrasive
must not be used.
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.
10
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.

Water and dirt-repellent coating
Rustproofing
The windows are treated with a surface coating that improves visibility in difficult weather
conditions.
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.
Water and dirt-repellent coating*
There is natural wear of the waterrepellent coating.
Maintenance:
•
Never use products such as car wax,
degreaser or similar on glass surfaces as
this could ruin their water-repellent properties.
•
Take care when cleaning so as not to
damage the glass surface.
•
To avoid damaging glass surfaces when
removing ice – only use plastic ice scrapers.
•
Treatment with a special finishing agent
available from Volvo dealers is recommended in order to maintain the waterrepellent properties. This should be used
first after three years and then each year.
IMPORTANT
Do not use a metal ice scraper to remove
ice from the windows. Use the heating to
remove ice from the door mirrors; see Windows and rearview and door mirrors heating (p. 98).

1. Pour a small amount of the protective
cream on the felted cloth and massage in
a thin layer of cream with gentle circular
movements on the leather.
2. Allow the leather to dry for 20 minutes
before use.
The leather has now been given improved
protection against stains and improved UV
protection.
Washing instructions for the leather
steering wheel
•
Remove dirt and dust with a soft premoistened sponge and neutral soap.
•
Leather needs to breathe. Never cover
the leather steering wheel with protective
plastic.
•
Use natural oils. Volvo's leather care
agents are recommended for best results.
If the steering wheel has stains:
Group 1 (ink, wine, coffee, milk, sweat and
blood)
–
368
Use a soft cloth or sponge. Mix a 5%
ammonia solution. (For blood stains, use
a solution of 2 dl water and 25g salt.)
Group 2 (fats, oils, sauces and chocolate)
Paint damage
1. Same procedure as for group 1.
Paint is an important part of the car's rustproofing and should therefore be checked
regularly. The most common types of paintwork damage are stone chips, scratches, and
marks on the edges of wings, doors and
bumpers.
2. Polish with an absorbent paper or cloth.
Group 3 (dry dirt, dust)
1. Use a soft brush to remove the dirt.
2. Same procedure as for group 1.
Touching up minor paintwork damage
Stains on interior plastic parts, metal
parts and wood parts
To avoid the onset of rust, damaged paintwork should be rectified immediately.
A fibrillated fibre or microfibre cloth, lightly
moistened with water, available from Volvo
dealers, is recommended for cleaning interior
parts and surfaces.
Materials
Do not scrape or rub stains. Never use strong
stain removers. A special cleaning agent
available from Volvo dealers can be used for
more difficult cleaning.
Seatbelts
Use water and a synthetic detergent. A special textile cleaning agent is available from
your Volvo dealer. Make sure the seatbelt is
dry before allowing it to retract.

with a basecoat and clearcoat once the
primer has dried.
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

Audio and media
The audio and media system consists of radio
(p. 379), media player (p. 390), TV (p. 421)*
as well as the option to communicate with
mobile phone (p. 403) *. Information is presented on a 5 or 7-inch* screen in the upper
section of the centre console. Functions can
be controlled via buttons in the steering
wheel, in the centre console below the screen
or via a remote control (p. 425) *.
If the audio and media system is active when
the engine is switched off then it is automatically activated the next time the key is
inserted into key position I (p. 71) or higher,
and it continues with the same source (e.g.
radio) as before the engine was switched off
(the driver's door must be closed on cars with
Keyless systems*).
The audio and media system can be used for
15 minutes at a time without the remote control key being in the ignition switch by pressing the On/Off button.
When the car is being started the audio and
media system is switched off temporarily and
continues when the engine has started.

RDS functions
With RDS the radio can automatically change
to the strongest transmitter. RDS provides the
facility to receive e.g. traffic information (TP)
and to search for certain programme types
(PTY).
RDS (Radio Data System) links FM transmitters into a network. An FM transmitter in such
a network sends information that gives an
RDS radio the following functions:
•
Automatically switches to a stronger
transmitter if reception in the area is poor.
•
Searches for programme type, such as
traffic information or news.
•
Receives text information on current radio
programme.
NOTE
Some radio stations do not use RDS or
only selected parts of its functionality.
If a required programme type is located the
radio can switch stations interrupting the
audio source currently in use. For example, if
the CD player is in use, it is paused. The
interrupting transmission is played back at a
preset volume, see Volume control for interrupting radio programme types (PTY) (p.
386). The radio returns to the previous audio

type is no longer broadcast.
Alarms in the event of accidents and
disasters
The programme functions alarm (ALARM!),
traffic information (TP), news (NEWS), and
programme types (PTY) interrupt one another

Traffic information (TP)
This function allows traffic information that is
broadcast within a set radio station's RDS
network to break through.
The alarm cannot be temporarily interrupted

Voice recognition* control of a mobile
phone
The driver always holds overall responsibility for driving the vehicle in a safe manner
and complying with all applicable rules of
the road.
Voice recognition38 allows the driver to voiceactivate certain functions in a Bluetooth®-connected mobile phone or in Volvo's navigation
system.
NOTE
•
•
The information in this section
describes the use of voice commands
to control a mobile phone connected
using Bluetooth®. For detailed information on using a Bluetooth®-connected mobile phone, see Bluetooth®
handsfree phone (p. 403).
The Volvo navigation system has a
separate supplement which contains
more information on voice recognition
and voice commands to control the
system.
The voice recognition system allows the
driver to voice-activate certain functions of a
Bluetooth®-connected mobile phone and in
Volvo's navigation system, while the driver
can keep his/her hands on the wheel at the
same time. The input data are in dialogue
form with spoken commands from the user
and verbal replies from the system. The voice
recognition system uses the same microphone as the Bluetooth® handsfree system
(see Bluetooth®* handsfree phone - overview
(p. 404)) and the voice recognition system's
replies come via the car's speakers.
Voice commands offer convenience and help
the driver to avoid being distracted, and
instead concentrate on driving and focus
attention on the road and traffic conditions.

detected that there is no reception for all TV

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. 442) (when a trailer is
hitched) influence the load capacity and are
not included in the kerb weight.
Permitted max. load = Gross vehicle weight Kerb weight.
12
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 heater, Safety
grille, Carpets, Luggage 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. 438).

Engine oil - adverse driving conditions
Related information
•
•
Adverse driving conditions can lead to abnormally high oil temperature or oil consumption.
Below are some examples of adverse driving
conditions.
Check the oil level (p. 337), more frequently
for long journeys:
12
•
•
•
•
towing a caravan or trailer
in mountainous regions
at high speeds
in temperatures colder than -30 °C or
hotter than +40 °C
The above also apply to shorter driving distances at low temperatures.
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.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions can be
affected negatively by several causes.
Examples of this are:
•
•
•
12
If the car is equipped with extra equipment that affects the car's weight. See
information about Weights (p. 441).
The driver's driving style.
If the customer has specified wheels
larger than those fitted as standard on the
model's basic version, then resistance
increases.
•
High speed results in increased wind
resistance.
•
Fuel quality, road and traffic conditions,
weather and the condition of the car.
Even a combination of the above-mentioned
examples can result in significantly improved
consumption.
Consumption is higher and power output
lower for fuel with an octane rating of
91 RON.
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.
