Recording data
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 crash 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
10
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.
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
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
applicable legal requirements. For further information - contact a Volvo dealer.
Accessories and extra equipment
The incorrect connection and installation of
accessories can negatively affect the car's
electrical system. Certain accessories only
function when their associated software is
installed in the car's computer system. Volvo
therefore recommends that you always contact an authorised Volvo workshop before
installing accessories which are connected to
or affect the electrical system.
Change of ownership for cars with
Volvo On Call*
Volvo On Call is a supplemental service that
consists of safety, security and comfort services. If the car has Volvo On Call and there is a
change of owner, it is very important that these
services are discontinued so that the former
owner cannot access the services in the car.
Contact the call centre by pressing the ON
CALL button in the car or contact an authorised Volvo workshop. See also "Changing the
security code" in the owner's manual for Volvo
On Call.

Introduction
Volvo and the environment
G000000
Volvo Cars' environmental philosophy
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 resourceefficient 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 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.
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
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.

Introduction
Volvo and the environment
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.
Volvo workshops and the environment
Regular maintenance creates the conditions
for a long service life and low fuel consumption
for your car. In this way you contribute to a
cleaner environment. When Volvo's workshops
are entrusted with the service and maintenance of your car it becomes part of our system. Volvo makes clear demands regarding the
way in which our workshops are designed in
order to prevent spills and discharges into the
environment. Our workshop staff have the
knowledge and the tools required to guarantee
good environmental care.
Reducing environmental impact
You can easily help reduce environmental
impact - here are a few tips:
14
• Avoid letting the engine idle - switch off the
engine when stationary for longer periods.
Pay attention to local regulations.
• Drive economically - think ahead.
• Perform service and maintenance in
accordance with the owner's manual's
instructions - follow the Service and Warranty Booklet's recommended intervals.
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.
• 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.
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 the pages 286 and
386.

General information
Releasing the seatbelt
Press the red button on the seatbelt buckle and
then let the belt retract. If the seatbelt does not
retract fully, feed it in by hand so that it does
not hang loose.
The seatbelt locks and cannot be withdrawn:
• if it is pulled out too quickly
• during braking and acceleration
• if the car leans heavily.
Make sure that you:
Heavy braking can have serious consequences
if the seatbelts are not used. Ensure that all
passengers use their seatbelts.
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.
• do not use clips or anything else that can
prevent the seatbelt from fitting properly
• ensure that the seatbelt is not twisted or
caught on anything
• the hip strap must be positioned low down
(not over the abdomen)
• tension the hip strap over the lap by pulling
the diagonal shoulder belt up towards the
shoulder.
Putting on a seatbelt
Pull the belt out slowly and secure it by pressing its locking tab into the seatbelt buckle. A
loud "click" indicates that the belt has locked.
The buckles only fit the intended lock in the rear

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.
WARNING
Never modify or repair the seatbelts yourself. Volvo recommends that you contact an
authorised Volvo workshop.
If a seatbelt has been subjected to a major
load, such as in conjunction with a collision,
the entire seatbelt must be replaced. Some
of the protective characteristics of the seatbelt may have been lost, even if it appears
to be undamaged. In addition, replace the
seatbelt if the belt is worn or damaged. The
new seatbelt must be type-approved and
intended for installation in the same position
as the replaced seatbelt.

An acoustic signal and indicator lamp remind
the driver and front seat passenger to use a
seatbelt if either of them is not wearing one. At
low speed, the audio reminder will sound for
the first 6 seconds.
Seatbelt tensioner
All the seatbelts are equipped with belt 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.

WARNING
If the warning symbol for the airbag system
remains illuminated or illuminates while driving, it means that the airbag system does
not have full functionality. The symbol indicates a fault in the seatbelt tensioner system, SIPS, the IC system or some other fault
in the system. Volvo recommends that you
contact an authorised Volvo workshop
immediately.
The system consists of airbags and sensors. A
sufficiently violent collision trips the sensors
and the airbag(s) are inflated with hot gas. To
cushion the impact, the airbag deflates when
compressed. When this occurs, smoke
escapes into the car. This is completely normal. The entire process, including inflation and
deflation of the airbag, occurs within tenths of
a second.

Airbags
Passenger airbag
NOTE
The car has an airbag to supplement the protection afforded by the seatbelt on the passenger side. It is folded up into a compartment
above the glovebox. Its cover panel is marked
AIRBAG.
The sensors react differently depending on
the course of the collision and whether or
not the seatbelts on the driver and passenger side are used.
It is therefore possible that only one (or
none) of the airbags may inflate in a collision. The airbag system senses the force of
the collision on the car and adapts accordingly so that one or more airbags are
deployed.
The capacity of the airbags is also adapted
to the collision force to which the vehicle is
subjected.

Side airbags (SIPS bags)
G032949
WARNING
In a side impact collision a large proportion of
the collision force is transferred by the SIPS
(Side Impact Protection System) to beams, pillars, the floor, the roof and other structural
parts of the body. The side airbags at the driver's and front passenger seats protect the
chest area and the hip and are an important
part of the SIPS.
The SIPS bag system consists of two main
components, side airbag and sensors. The
side airbags are located in the front seat backrests.
•
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.
•

Child seats and side airbags
The protection provided by the car to children

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.

Inflatable Curtain (IC)
Properties
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.
WARNING
The inflatable curtain IC (Inflatable Curtain) is a
part of SIPS and the airbags. 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.
The inflatable curtain helps to prevent the
driver and passengers from striking their heads
on the inside of the car during a collision.
Do not load the car higher than 50 mm under
the top edge of the door windows. Otherwise, the intended protection of the inflatable curtain, which is concealed in the headlining, may be compromised.
WARNING
The inflatable curtain is a supplement to the
seatbelts.
Always use a seatbelt.

01 Safety
WHIPS
Protection against whiplash injury –
WHIPS
The whiplash protection system (WHIPS) consists of energy absorbing backrests and specially designed head restraints in the front
seats. The system is actuated by a rear-end
collision, where the angle and speed of the collision, and the nature of the colliding vehicle all
have an influence.
01
Correct seating position
For the best possible protection, the driver and
front seat passenger should sit in the centre of
the seat with as little space as possible
between the head and the head restraint.
Do not obstruct the WHIPS system
WARNING
The WHIPS system is a supplement to the
seatbelts. Always use a seatbelt.
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.
WHIPS system and child seats/booster
cushions
Do not leave any objects on the floor behind the
driver's seat/passenger seat that may prevent the
WHIPS system from functioning.
WARNING
Do not squeeze rigid objects between the
rear seat cushion and the front seat backrest. Make sure you do not to obstruct the
function of the WHIPS system.
The protection provided by the car to children
seated in a child seat or on a booster cushion
is not diminished by the WHIPS system.

WHIPS
WARNING
If a seat has been subjected to extreme
forces, such as due to a rear-end collision,
the WHIPS system must be checked. Volvo
recommends that it is checked by an
authorised Volvo workshop.
Part of the WHIPS system's protective
capacity may have been lost even if the
seats appear to be undamaged.
Do not place objects on the rear seat that may
prevent the WHIPS system from functioning.
WARNING
If a rear seat backrest is folded down, the
corresponding front seat must be moved
forward so that it does not touch the folded
backrest.

General
the car door handle or tailgate. This means that
the person who wishes to lock or unlock a door
must have the PCC with him or her. It is not
possible to lock or unlock a door if the PCC is
on the opposite side of the car.
The red rings in the preceding illustration indicate the range covered by the system's antennas.
If all PCCs are removed from the car when the
engine is running or key position II is active
(see page 82) and if all doors are closed, then
a warning message is shown in the information
display and an audio reminder signal sounds at
the same time.
The keyless drive function in the PCC allows
the car to be unlocked, driven and locked without the need for a key. You simply have to have
the PCC with you. The system makes it easier
and more convenient to open the car, e.g.
when your hands are full.
Both of the car's PCCs incorporate the Keyless
function. Additional PCCs can be ordered, see
page 48.
PCC range
In order to open a door or the tailgate, a PCC
must be no more than approx. 1.5 metres from
1
reactivated. It is therefore important to handle
all PCCs with great care.
02
IMPORTANT
Never leave a PCC behind in the car.
Interference to PCC function
Electromagnetic fields and screening can interfere with the keyless drive system. For this reason, do not place the PCC near mobile phones
or metallic objects.
If interference is experienced nonetheless, use
the PCC and the key blade as a remote control
key, see page 49.
The warning message clears and the audio
reminder signal stops when the PCC is brought
back to the car after:
• a door has been opened and closed
• the PCC is inserted into the ignition switch
• the READ button has been pressed.
Handling the PCC safely
If a PCC with keyless drive function is left in the
car, it is deactivated temporarily when the car
is locked. This prevents unauthorised entry.
However, if someone breaks into the car,
opens the door and finds the PCC, it can be

Before the breath test
In order to obtain correct function and as accurate a measurement result as possible:
• Avoid eating or drinking approx.
5 minutes before the breath test.
• Avoid excess windscreen washing - the
alcohol in the washer fluid may result in an
incorrect measurement result.

Engine block heater*
WARNING
The engine block heater is powered by high
voltage. Fault tracing and repair of an electric engine block heater and its electrical
connections must only be carried out by a
workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop
is recommended.
The engine is started in the same way as in a
petrol-engined car.

Electrical input to the engine block heater.
1. Connect the engine block heater for at
least 1 hour.
When the temperature is expected to be lower
than –10 °C and the car has been refuelled with
bioethanol E85, an engine block heater should
be used for about 2 hours to facilitate the quick
starting of the engine.
2. Make further attempts to start with the
START/STOP ENGINE button.
IMPORTANT
If the engine does not start despite repeated
start attempts, you are recommended to
contact an authorised Volvo workshop.
03
The lower the temperature, the longer the time
required with the engine block heater. At
-20 °C the heater should be used for approx. 3
hours.
In the event of stalling due to an empty
fuel tank, bioethanol E85 from a reserve
fuel can may make the engine difficult
to start in extreme cold. This is avoided
by filling the reserve fuel can with 95
octane petrol.
For more information on Flexifuel's bioethanol
E 85 fuel, see page 291 and 383.
Cars intended for E85 have an electric engine
block heater*. Starting and driving with a preheated engine involves significantly lower
emissions and reduced fuel consumption. For
this reason you should aim to use the engine
block heater throughout the winter months.

03 Your driving environment
Starting the engine – Flexifuel
Fuel adaptation
Flexifuel engines can be driven on both 95
octane unleaded petrol and bioethanol E85.
Both fuels are filled in the common fuel tank so
that any variations of mixing ratios between
these two fuels is possible.
03
If the fuel tank is filled with petrol after the car
has been driven on bioethanol E85 (or vice
versa) then the engine may run slightly
unevenly for a time. For this reason it is important to allow the engine to accustom itself
(adapt) to the new fuel mixture.
Adaptation takes place automatically when the
car is driven for a short period at an even
speed.
IMPORTANT
After the fuel mixture in the tank has been
changed an adaptation should be made by
driving at an even speed for about 15
minutes.
If the battery has been discharged or disconnected then a slightly longer period of driving
is required for the adaptation as the memory
for the electronics has been cleared.

engine compartment.
5. Open the clips on the front cover of the
battery in your car and remove the cover,
see page 345.
IMPORTANT
Do not touch the crocodile clips during the
start procedure. There is a risk of sparks
forming.
12. Remove the jump leads in reverse order first the black and then the red.
> Make sure that none of the black jump
lead's clamps comes into contact with
the battery's positive terminal or the
clamp connected to the red jump lead!
6. Connect the red jump lead's other clamp
onto the car's positive terminal (2).
If the battery is flat then the car can be started
with current from another battery.
When jump starting the car, the following steps
are recommended to avoid short circuits or
other damage:
1. Insert the remote control key in key position 0, see page 82.
7. Connect one of the black jump lead's
clamps to the donor battery's negative terminal (3).
8. Connect the other clamp to a grounding
point, e.g. right-hand engine mounting at
the top, the outer screw head (4).
2. Check that the donor battery has a voltage
of 12 V.
9. Check that the jump lead clamps are
affixed securely so that there are no sparks
during the starting procedure.
3. If the donor battery is installed in another
car - switch off the donor car's engine and
make sure that the two cars do not touch
each other.
10. Start the engine of the "donor car" and
allow it to run a few minutes at a speed
slightly higher than idle approx. 1500 rpm.
11. Start the engine in the car with the discharged battery.

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

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/kickdown 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.

in the DRIVe vehicle series whose concept
consists of an interaction between several separate energy-saving functions, all with the
common purpose of reducing fuel consumption, which in turn contributes to reduced
exhaust emissions.
The MY CAR menu system in the car includes
instructions which explain parts of the DRIVe
concept along with several possible settings

03 Your driving environment
All-wheel drive – AWD*
All Wheel Drive is always available
03
All Wheel Drive means that the car is driving all
four wheels at the same time.
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.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
131
03 Your driving environment
Foot brake
General
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.
03
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 page 378.
Anti-lock braking system
The car is equipped with ABS (Anti-lock
Braking System) which prevents the wheels
from locking during braking. This means the
ability to steer is maintained and it is easier to
swerve to avoid a hazard for example. Vibration
132
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.
Cleaning the brake discs
Coatings of dirt and water on the brake discs
may result in delayed brake function. This 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.
Emergency Brake Assistance
Emergency brake lights and automatic
hazard warning flashers
Emergency brake lights are activated to alert
vehicles behind about sudden braking. The
function means that the brake light flashes
instead of - as in normal braking - shining with
a constant glow.
Emergency brake lights are activated at
speeds above 50 km/h if the ABS system is
working and/or in the event of sudden braking.
After the car's speed has been slowed below
10 km/h the brake light returns from flashing to
the normal constant glow - while at the same
time the hazard warning flashers are activated,
and they flash until the driver changes engine
speed with the accelerator pedal or they are
deactivated with their button, see page 93.
Emergency Brake Assistance EBA (Emergency
Brake Assist) helps to increase brake force and
so reduce braking distance. EBA detects the
driver's braking style and increases brake force
as necessary. The brake force can be reinforced up to the level when the ABS system is
engaged. The EBA function is interrupted when
the pressure on the brake pedal is reduced.
NOTE
When EBA is activated the brake pedal lowers slightly more than usual, depress (hold)
the brake pedal as long as necessary. If the
brake pedal is released then all braking
ceases.

brake fluid reservoir, do not drive further
before topping up the brake fluid.
The reason for the loss of brake fluid must
be investigated.

03 Your driving environment
HDC Hill Descent Control
General1
03
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
instead only intended to be supplementary
assistance.
The driver always has ultimate responsibility
that the car is driven safely.
Function
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.
1
134
HDC is only available on the XC70.
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 trip computer
display, see page 121.
NOTE
HDC cannot be activated in an automatic
gearbox with the gear selector 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.
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 operating the
symbol illuminates and the display
shows Hill descent control ON.
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:
03 Your driving environment
HDC Hill Descent Control
• 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.
03
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.

Function
A faint electric motor noise can be heard when
the electrical parking brake is being applied.
The noise can also be heard during the automatic function checking of the parking brake.
If the car is stationary when the parking brake
is applied then it only acts on the rear wheels.
If it is applied when the car is moving then the
normal foot brake is used, i.e. the brake acts
on all four wheels. Brake function changes over
to the rear wheels when the car is almost stationary.
Low battery voltage
If the battery voltage is too low then the parking
brake can neither be released nor applied.
Connect a donor battery if the battery voltage
is too low, see page 119.

Climate control
General
Climate control
The car is equipped with electronic climate
control. The climate control system cools or
heats as well as dehumidifies the air in the passenger compartment.
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.
04
Sensor location
• The sun sensor1 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
on the door mirror.
• The humidity sensor* is located by the interior rearview mirror.
The system includes a sun sensor1 which
detects on which side the sun is shining into
the passenger compartment. This means 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.
1
156
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.
Condensation
In warm weather, condensation from the air
conditioning may drip under the car. This is
normal.
NOTE
Do not cover or block the sensors with
clothing or other objects.
Actual temperature
The temperature you select corresponds to the
physical experience with reference to factors
such as air speed, humidity and solar radiation
etc. in and around the car.
Temporary shut-off of the air
conditioning
Ice and snow
Remove ice and snow from the climate control
system air intake (the grille between the bonnet
and the windscreen).
Side windows and sunroof*
To ensure that the air conditioning works optimally, the side windows, and sunroof* if specified, should be closed.
Fault tracing and repair
Misting windows
Engage a workshop that has authorisation for
the fault tracing and repair of the climate control system. Volvo recommends that you contact an authorised Volvo workshop.
Remove misting on the insides of the windows
by primarily using the defroster function.
Refrigerant
To reduce the risk of misting, keep the windows clean and use window cleaner.
Only applies to ECC.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
The air conditioning system contains a refrigerant. This refrigerant contains no chlorine,
which means that it is harmless to the ozone
layer. Engage a workshop that has authorisation for filling/changing refrigerant to carry out
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
Climate control
the work. Volvo recommends that you contact
an authorised Volvo workshop.
Total airing function
The function opens/closes all side windows
simultaneously and can be used for example to
quickly air the car during hot weather, see
page 61.
Passenger compartment filter
All air entering the car's passenger compartment is cleaned with a filter. This 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.
Clean Zone Interior Package (CZIP)*
This option keeps the passenger compartment
clear of allergy and asthma inducing substances. For more information on CZIP, see the
brochure included with the purchase of the car.
The following is included:
• An enhanced fan function that means that
the fan starts when the car is opened with
the remote control key. The fan fills the
passenger compartment with fresh air. The
function starts when required and is disengaged automatically after a time or when
one of the passenger compartment doors
is opened. The amount of time the fan runs
is reduced gradually due to reduced need
up until the car is 4 years old.
• The air quality system IAQS 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.
and easy to remove and clean. Use cleaning
agents and car care products recommended
by Volvo, see page 362.
Menu settings
It is possible to activate/deactivate or change
the default settings for four of the climate control system's functions via the centre console.
For general information about menu navigation, see page 149:
• Fan speed in automatic mode*, see
page 163.
04
• Recirculation timer for passenger compartment air, see page 164.
NOTE
To keep the CZIP standard in cars with CZIP
the IAQS filter must 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
keep the CZIP standard the IAQS filter must
be changed at a regular service.
• Automatic rear window defrosting, see
page 106.
• Air quality system IAQS*, see page 164
The climate control system's functions can be
reset to the default settings via the menu system in MY CAR and this is carried out under:
Settings Climate settings Reset

Use of tested materials in the interior
equipment.
The materials have been developed in order to
minimise the quantity of dust in the passenger
compartment and they contribute to making

Additional heater*
General information about the
additional heater
Passenger compartment heater*
If the additional heater is supplemented with
timer function then it can be used as a fueldriven passenger compartment heater, see
page 166.
In cold climate zones1 an additional heater may
be required to obtain the correct operating
temperature in the engine and to obtain sufficient heating in the passenger compartment.
Electric additional heater
Cars with certain petrol engines2 have an electric additional heater integrated into the car's
climate control system.
Fuel-driven additional heater
A fuel-driven additional heater is fitted in cars
with diesel engines.
The heater starts automatically when extra
heat is required when the engine is running.
The heater is switched off automatically when
the correct temperature is reached or when the
engine is switched off.
NOTE
When the additional heater is active there
may be smoke from the right-hand wheel
housing which is perfectly normal.

DSTC – Stability and traction control system
General information on DSTC
The stability and traction control system, DSTC
(Dynamic Stability & Traction Control) helps the
driver to avoid skidding and improves the car's
traction.
04
The function is deactivated if the driver
selects Sport mode.
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.
Operation
Active Yaw Control
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.
The function limits the driving and brake force
of the wheels individually in order to stabilise
the car.
Spin Control
The function prevents the driving wheels from
spinning against the road surface during acceleration.
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.
Trailer Stability Assist* - TSA
The function serves to stabilise the car and
trailer combination if it begins to snake, see
page 306.
172
NOTE
Selection of level - Sport mode
The DSTC system is always activated - it cannot be deactivated.
If the driver stops a controlled skid by releasing
the accelerator pedal then the DSTC system
intervenes and stabilises the car.
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:
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
1. Press the centre console button MY CAR

Adaptive cruise control*
General information on ACC
Function
WARNING
The adaptive cruise control (ACC – Adaptive
Cruise Control) helps the driver maintain a safe
distance from the vehicle ahead. The cruise
control provides a more relaxing driving experience on long journeys on motorways and long
straight main roads in smooth traffic flows.
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.
The driver sets the desired speed and time
interval to the car in front. When the radar
detector detects a slower vehicle in front of the
car, the speed is automatically adapted to that.
When the road is clear again the car returns to
the selected speed.
Read the whole of this section for information on the limitations of the adaptive cruise
control. The driver must be familiar with this
information before using the adaptive cruise
control.
If the adaptive cruise control is switched off or
set to the standby mode and the car comes too
close to a vehicle in front, then the driver is
warned by Distance Warning (see page 189)
about the short distance.
The adaptive cruise control cannot handle
all traffic, weather and road conditions.
The driver always bears responsibility for
maintaining the correct distance and speed,
even when the adaptive cruise control is
being used.

Adaptive cruise control*
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.
04
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 cruise control.
WARNING
The brake pedal moves when the cruise
control brakes. Do not rest your foot under
the brake pedal as it could become trapped.
2
180
The adaptive cruise control aims to follow the
vehicle ahead in the same lane at a time interval
set by the driver. 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.
The 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, braking
may come unexpectedly or not at all, see
page 185.
The adaptive cruise control can be activated to
follow another vehicle at speeds from
30 km/h2 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.
Queue Assistant (in cars with automatic gearbox) can operate in the range of 0-200 km/h, see page 183.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
If the car needs to be braked more heavily than
cruise control capacity and the driver does not
brake, then the cruise control uses the collision
warning system's warning lamp and warning
sound (see page 197) to alert the driver that
immediate intervention is required.
NOTE
The warning lamp may be difficult to notice
in strong sunlight or when sunglasses are
being worn.
WARNING
Cruise control only warns of vehicles
detected by the radar sensor. Consequently
there may be no warning or it may be subject to a delay. Do not wait for a warning but
brake when it is necessary.
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. The cruise control may have difficultly in keeping the correct distance from the
vehicle ahead when driving on steep roads,
with a heavy load or with a trailer - in which
case, be extra attentive and ready to slow
down.

Note that a short time interval only allows the
driver a short time to react and take action if
any unforeseen traffic problem should arise.
The number of lines for the
selected time interval is
shown during the setting itself
and for several seconds afterwards. Then a smaller scale
version of the symbol is
shown to the right of the display. The same symbol is also shown when
Distance Warning is activated, see page 189.
NOTE
Only use the time interval that is allowed in
accordance with local traffic regulations.
The time interval is increased or decreased
with the steering wheel keypad's thumbwheel

If cruise control does not seem to react to
activation the reason may be that the time
interval to the closest vehicle prevents an

adaptive cruise control increases the time
interval slightly.
The higher the speed, the longer the calculated distance in metres for a specific time
interval.

Adaptive cruise control*
Automatic activation parking brake
In some situations the cruise control applies
the parking brake in order to keep a stationary
car remaining stationary.
This takes place if:
• the driver opens the door or takes off his/
her seatbelt
• DSTC is changed from Normal to Sport
mode
• cruise control has held the car stationary
for more than 2 minutes
• the engine is switched off
• the brakes have overheated.
The radar sensor and its limitations
Apart from the adaptive cruise control, the
radar sensor is also used by the Collision
Warning with Auto Brake function (see
page 196) and the Distance Warning function
(see page 189). The function of the radar sensor is to detect cars or larger vehicles in the
same direction, in the same lane.
Modification of the radar sensor could result in
it being illegal to use.
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.
The adaptive cruise control cannot handle
all traffic, weather and road conditions.
Read the whole of this section for information on the limitations of the adaptive cruise
control. The driver must be familiar with this
information before using the adaptive cruise
control.
The driver always bears responsibility for
maintaining the correct distance and speed,
even when the adaptive cruise control is
being used.
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.
04
The capacity of the radar sensor to detect vehicles in front is reduced significantly:
WARNING
Accessories or other objects such as auxiliary lamps must not be installed in front of
the grille.
• if the radar sensor becomes blocked and
cannot detect other vehicles e.g. in heavy
rain or slush, or if other objects have collected in front of the radar sensor.
NOTE
Keep the surface in front of the radar sensor
clean.
• if the speed of vehicles in front is significantly different from your own speed.

Adaptive cruise control*
Sometimes the radar sensor is late at
detecting vehicles at close distances, e.g.
a vehicle that drives in between the car and
vehicles in front.
Examples where the cruise control does
not work optimally
The radar sensor has a limited field of vision. In
some situations another vehicle is not
detected, or the detection is made later than
expected.
Small vehicles, such as motorcycles, or
vehicles not driving in the centre of the lane
can remain undetected.
In bends the radar sensor may detect the
wrong vehicle or lose a detected vehicle
from view.

Fault tracing and action
If the display shows the message Radar
blocked See manual this means that the
radar signals from the radar sensor are blocked
and that vehicles in front of the car could not
be detected.

City Safety™
General
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.
04
The function is active at speeds below
30 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™ is activated in situations where
the driver should have started braking earlier,
which is why it cannot help the driver in every
situation.
Maintenance and replacement of City
Safety™ components must only be performed by a workshop - an authorised Volvo
workshop is recommended.
WARNING
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, motorcycles and bicycles
or to humans and animals.
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 will be a collision sooner or
later.
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.
1
Function
IMPORTANT
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.
192
If the car is also equipped with a Collision
Warning function with Auto Brake*, these two
systems complement each other. For more
information on Collision Warning function with
Auto Brake, see page 196.
Never wait for City Safety™ to engage. The
driver always bears responsibility for maintaining the proper distance and speed.
NOTE: The illustration is schematic - details may vary depending on car model.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Laser sensor transmitter and receiver window1.
City Safety™ detects the traffic in front of the
car with a laser sensor 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.
If the speed difference is 4-15 km/h in relation
to the vehicle in front then City Safety™ can
completely prevent a collision.
City Safety™ activates a short, sharp braking
and stops the car in normal circumstances, just
behind the vehicle in front. For most drivers this
is well outside normal driving style and may be
experienced as being uncomfortable.
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
City Safety™
If the difference in speed between the vehicles
is greater than 15 km/h then City Safety™ may
not prevent the collision on its own. To obtain
full brake force, the driver must depress the
brake pedal. This could then make it possible
to prevent a collision, even at speed differences above 15 km/h.
Using MY CAR on the centre console display
screen with its menu system, search and locate
Settings Car settings Driving support
systems City Safety. Select the Off option.
For more information on the menu system MY
CAR, see page 148).
When the function is activated and brakes, the
instrument panel display shows a message to
the effect that the function is/has been active.
However, the function will be enabled the next
time the engine is started, regardless of
whether the system was enabled or disabled
when the engine was switched off.
NOTE
The brake lights come on when City
Safety™ brakes the car.
Operation
NOTE
The City Safety™ function is always enabled after the engine has been started via
key position I and II (see page 82 on key
positions).
On and Off
In certain situations, it may advisable to disable
City Safety™, e.g. where leafy branches could
sweep over the bonnet and/or windscreen.
After starting the engine City Safety™ can be
deactivated as follows:
WARNING
The laser sensor also transmits laser light
when City Safety™ is disabled manually.
To enable City Safety™ again:
• Follow the same procedure as for disabling, but select the On option.
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 infrared 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.
When the car is reversing City Safety™ cannot
be activated.
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.
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.
However, the sensor has limitations and has
poorer functionality in e.g. heavy snowfall or
rain, dense fog, dust storms or snow flurries.
Mist, dirt, ice or snow on the windscreen may
disrupt the function.
Driver commands are always prioritised, which
is why City Safety™ does not intervene in situations where the driver is steering, braking or
accelerating in a clear manner, even if a collision is unavoidable.
Limitations
04
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.
``
193
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
City Safety™
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.
The Windscreen Sensors blocked 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.
The following table presents possible causes
for the message being shown, along with suggestions for appropriate action.
Cause

NOTE
•
Keep the windscreen surface in front of
the laser sensor free from ice, snow and
dirt (see the illustration for sensor location, page 192).
•
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

IMPORTANT
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
repair or replacement of the windscreen
(see the illustration for sensor location, page
192) - an authorised Volvo workshop is recommended.
Failure to take action may result in reduced
performance for City Safety™.
To avoid the risk of reducing City Safety™
performance the following also applies:
•
The same type or a Volvo-approved
windscreen must be fitted during
replacement
•
The same type or Volvo-approved
windscreen wipers must be fitted during
replacement.

Collision Warning with Auto Brake & Pedestrian detection*
General
Collision Warning with Auto Brake and Pedestrian Detection (Collision Warning with Full
Auto Brake and Pedestrian Detection) is
designed to assist the driver when there is a
risk of colliding with a pedestrian or vehicles in
front that are stationary or moving in the same
direction.
The collision warning system must not be used
as an excuse for the driver to change his/her
driving style. If the driver solely relies on Collision Warning with Auto Brake to do the braking, there will be a collision sooner or later.
The collision warning system and City
Safety™ complement each other. For more
information on City Safety™, see page 192.
The collision warning system has the following
three functions.
04
• Collision Warning – Warns the driver of a
potentially imminent collision.
• Brake Support – Assists the driver to
brake effectively in a critical situation.
IMPORTANT
Maintenance of collision warning system
components must only be performed at a
workshop - an authorised Volvo workshop
is recommended.
• Auto Brake - Brakes the car automatically
in the event of an imminent risk of collision
with a pedestrian or vehicle in front, if the
driver does not himself/herself react in time
by braking and/or steering away. The Auto
Brake function can prevent a collision or
reduce collision speed.
WARNING
No automatic system can guarantee
100 % correct function in all situations.
Therefore, never try out the Auto brake system by driving towards people - this may
cause serious injuries or risk death.
The collision warning system is activated in situations where the driver should have started
braking a lot earlier, which is why the function
cannot help the driver in every situation.
Collision Warning with Auto Brake is designed
to be activated as late as possible in order to
avoid unnecessary intervention.
196
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
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
driving in another direction to the car or to
animals.
Warning only activated in the event of a high
risk for collision. The Function section and
the section after advise about limitations of
which the driver should be aware before
using Collision Warning with Auto Brake.
Warnings and brake interventions for
pedestrians are switched off at vehicle
speeds exceeding 80 km/h.
Warnings and brake interventions for
pedestrians 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.

Camera sensor
Collision warning
Together with a camera sensor, the radar sensor detects pedestrians, stationary vehicles as
well as vehicles driving in the same direction in
front of the car.
Brake support
Operation
If the risk of collision still increases after the
collision warning then the brake support is activated. The brake support prepares the brake
system for rapid braking and the brakes are
applied gently, which may be noticed as a
slight jerk.
Settings are made from MY CAR via the centre
console display screen and menu system. For
information on how the menu system is used,
see page 148.
If the brake pedal is depressed sufficiently
quickly then full brake function is implemented.
The Brake Support and Auto Brake functions are always enabled - they cannot be
deactivated.
Brake support also reinforces the driver's braking if the system considers that the braking is
not sufficient to avoid a collision.
Auto Brake
If the driver has not yet started an evasive
manoeuvre in this situation and the risk of a
collision is imminent then the Auto Brake function comes into effect, without the driver needing to touch the brake pedal. 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 collision.
In the event of there being a risk of collision with
a pedestrian or such a vehicle your attention is
drawn with a red flashing warning signal and a
warning sound.

could be perceived as irritating in certain situations, then change to warning distance
Normal.
Only use warning distance Short in exceptional cases, e.g. for dynamic driving.
198
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 the Distance
Alert set at time interval 4 – 5. see
page 189.
Limitations
The collision warning system is active from and
including approx. 4 km/h.
The visual warning signal may be difficult to
notice in the event of strong sunlight, reflections, when sunglasses are being worn or if the
driver is not looking straight ahead. The warning sound should therefore always be activated.
On slippery road surfaces the braking distance
is extended, which may reduce the capacity to
avoid a collision. In such situations the ABS
and DSTC systems will provide best possible
braking force with maintained stability.
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.

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.
04 Comfort and driving pleasure
Collision Warning with Auto Brake & Pedestrian detection*
WARNING
Warnings and brake interventions could be
implemented late or not at all if the traffic
situation or external influences mean that
the radar or camera sensor cannot detect a
pedestrian or a vehicle in front correctly.
The sensor system has a limited range for
pedestrians and the system therefore provides effective warnings and brake interventions at vehicle speeds up to 50 km/h.
For stationary or slow-moving vehicles,
warnings and brake interventions are effective at vehicle speeds up to 70 km/h.
Warnings for stationary or slow-moving
vehicles could be disengaged due to darkness or poor visibility.
The collision warning system uses the same
radar sensors as adaptive cruise control. For
more information on the radar sensor and its
limitations, see page 185.
If warnings are perceived as being too frequent
or disturbing then the warning distance can be
reduced. This would lead to the system warning at a later stage, which reduces the total
number of warnings.
why the system does not intervene in situations
where the car is approaching a vehicle in front
very slowly, e.g. when parking.
Driver commands are always prioritised, which
is why Collision Warning with Auto Brake does
not intervene in situations where the driver is
steering, braking or accelerating in a clear
manner, even if a collision is unavoidable.
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.
Camera sensor limitations
The car's camera sensor is used by the three
functions - Collision Warning with Auto Brake,
Driver Alert Control, see page 203 and Lane
Departure Warning, see page 206.
NOTE
Keep the windscreen surface in front of the
camera sensor clean from ice, snow, mist
and dirt.
Do not attach or fit anything to the windscreen in front of the camera sensor, as this
could reduce or prevent the function of one
or more camera-dependent systems.
The camera sensors have limitations similar to
the human eye, i.e. they "see" worse in darkness, heavy snowfall or rain and in thick fog for
example. Under such conditions the functions
of camera-dependent systems could be significantly reduced or temporarily disengaged.
04
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.
During very high temperatures the camera is
temporarily switched off for about 15 minutes
after the engine is started in order to protect
camera functionality.
When the car is reversing Collision Warning
with Auto Brake cannot be activated.
Collision Warning with Auto Brake is not activated at low speeds - under 4 km/h, which is

possible about the contours of the body - this
implies the opportunity to identify the head,
arms, shoulders, legs, upper and lower body
combined with a normal human pattern of
movement.
It cannot detect all pedestrians in all situations and it cannot see e.g. partially
obscured pedestrians, shorter people or
children (below 80 cm) or people in clothing
that hides the contours of the body.
If large parts of the body are not visible to the
camera then the system cannot detect a
pedestrian.

Driver Alert System – DAC*
General information on Driver Alert
System
General information on Driver Alert
Control - DAC
intended for major roads. The function is not
intended for city traffic.
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.
In some cases driving ability is not affected
despite driver fatigue. In which case there may
not be any warning issued for the driver. For
this reason it is always important to stop and
take a break in the event of any signs of driver
fatigue, irrespective of whether or not DAC
issues a warning.
The Driver Alert System consists of two different functions, which can either be switched on
at the same time or individually:
• Driver Alert Control (DAC)
• Lane Departure Warning (LDW), see
NOTE
page 206.
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.
Both functions use a camera which is dependent on the lane having side markings painted
on each side.
WARNING
The Driver Alert System does not work in all
situations but is instead only intended to be
of supplementary assistance.
The driver always has ultimate responsibility
that the car is driven safely.
The function 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.
A camera detects the side markings painted on
the carriageway and compares the section of
the road with the driver's steering wheel movements. The driver is alerted if the vehicle does
not follow the carriageway evenly.
04
The function must not be used to extend a
driving stint. Always plan breaks at regular
intervals and ensure that you are fully
rested.
Limitation
In some cases the system may issue a warning
despite driving ability not deteriorating, for
example:
• if the driver tests the LDW function.
• in strong side winds.
• on rutted road surfaces.
NOTE
The camera sensor has certain limitations,
see page 199.
The objective for DAC is to detect slowly deteriorating driving ability and it is primarily

If the vehicle is driven inconsistently then the
driver is alerted by an acoustic signal as well as
the text message Driver Alert Time for a
break. The warning is repeated after a time if
driving ability does not improve.
WARNING
An alarm should be taken very seriously, as
a sleepy driver is often not aware of his/her
own condition.
In the event of an alarm or a feeling of tiredness; stop the car in a safe manner as soon
as possible and rest.
Studies have shown that it is equally as dangerous to drive while tired as it is under the
influence of alcohol.

off with the button, the lamp goes out.
The centre console's display screen shows an
overview of the relationship between the car
and detected obstacle.
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.
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.
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

IMPORTANT
•
In which case, 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 unable to function
optimally.
The distance covered to the rear of the car is
about 1.5 metres. The acoustic signal for
obstacles behind comes from one of the rear
loudspeakers.
The distance covered in front of the car is about
0.8 metres. The acoustic signal for obstacles in
front comes from one of the front loudspeakers.
Rear parking assistance is activated when

General information on BLIS
WARNING
G021426
The system is a supplement to, not a
replacement for, a safe driving style and use
of the rearview mirrors. It can never replace
the driver's attention and responsibility. The
responsibility for changing lanes safely
always rests with the driver.
BLIS camera1
If necessary, the system can be switched off
temporarily, see the section Activate/deactivate.
Blind spots
The system is designed to work most effectively when driving in dense traffic on multi-lane
highways.
04
When a camera (1) has detected a vehicle
inside the blind spot zone the indicator lamp (2)
illuminates with a constant glow.
Indicator lamp
NOTE
BLIS symbol
BLIS is an information system based on camera technology that under certain conditions
can help the driver to notice vehicles moving in
the same direction as the host vehicle in the socalled "blind spot".
1
The lamp illuminates on the side of the car
where the system has detected the vehicle.
If the car is overtaken on both sides at the
same time then both lamps illuminate.
A = approx. 9.5 m and B = approx. 3.0 m.
BLIS advises the driver with a message if a fault
arises in the system. If for example the system's cameras are obscured then the BLIS
indicator lamp flashes and a message is shown
on the information display. In such cases,
check and clean the lenses.

When BLIS operates
Button for activating/deactivating.
BLIS is activated when the engine is started.
The indicator lamps in the door panels flash
three times when BLIS is activated.
The system can be deactivated/activated after
starting the engine with one press on the
BLIS button.
Some combinations of the selected equipment
leave no vacant space for a button in the centre
console - in which case the function is handled
by the car's menu system MY CAR under
Settings Car settings BLIS. (For a
description of the menu system, see
page 148).
216
The system operates when the car is driven at
a speed above 10 km/h.
Overtaking
The system is designed to react if:
• you overtake another vehicle at a speed of
up to 10 km/h faster than the other vehicle
• you are overtaken by a vehicle travelling up
to 70 km/h faster than you are travelling.
WARNING
BLIS does not work in sharp bends.
BLIS does not work when the car is reversing.
A wide trailer coupled to the car can conceal
other vehicles in adjacent lanes. It can prevent the vehicle in the screened area from
being detected by BLIS.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
Daylight and darkness
In daylight the system reacts to the shape of
the surrounding vehicles. The system is
designed to detect motor vehicles such as
cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles.
In darkness the system reacts to the headlamps of surrounding vehicles. If the headlamps of surrounding vehicles are not switched
on then the system does not detect the vehicles. This means for example that the system
does not react to a trailer without headlamps
which is towed behind a car or truck.
WARNING
The system does not react to cyclists or
moped riders.
The BLIS cameras have limitations similar to
those of the human eye, i.e. they do not
"see" as well e.g. in heavy snowfall, against
strong light or in thick fog.

Introduction
The infotainment system's voice recognition1
allows the driver to voice-activate certain functions in a BluetoothŸ-connected mobile phone
or in Volvo's navigation system - RTI (Road and

•
The information in this section
describes the use of voice commands
to control a mobile phone connected
using BluetoothŸ. For detailed information on using a mobile phone connected using BluetoothŸ with the car's
Infotainment system see page 258.
The Volvo navigation system RTI (Road
and Traffic Information System) has a
separate user manual which contains
more information on voice control and
voice commands to control that system.
WARNING
The driver always holds overall responsibility for driving the vehicle in a safe manner
and complying with all applicable rules of
the road.
The voice recognition system allows the driver
to voice-activate certain functions of a
BluetoothŸ-connected mobile phone and in
Volvo's navigation system - RTI (Road and
Traffic Information 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 BluetoothŸ handsfree system (see illustration on page 258) 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.

Recommendations during driving
General
Economical driving
Driving economically means driving smoothly
while thinking ahead and adjusting your driving
style and speed to the prevailing conditions.
• Drive in the highest gear possible, adapted
to the current traffic situation and road lower engine speeds result in lower fuel
consumption.
• Avoid driving with open windows.
• Avoid sudden unnecessary acceleration
and heavy braking.
• Remove unnecessary items from the car the greater the load the higher the fuel consumption.
• Use engine braking to slow down, when it
06
can take place without risk to other road
users.
• A roof load and ski box increase air resistance, leading to higher fuel consumption
- remove the load carriers when not in use.
• Do not run the engine to operating temperature at idling speed, but rather drive
with a light load as soon as possible - a
cold engine consumes more fuel than a
warm one.
• The V70 with the D5 engine and 6-speed
manual transmission or DRIVe engine and
6-speed manual transmission is started in
286
2nd gear under normal conditions on level
ground.
For more information and further advice, see
the pages 13 and 386.
WARNING
Never switch off the engine while moving,
such as downhill, this deactivates important
systems such as the power steering and
brake servo.
Driving in water
The car can be driven through water at a maximum depth of 25 cm at a maximum speed of
10 km/h. Extra caution should be exercised
when passing through flowing water.
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.
IMPORTANT
Engine damage can occur if water enters
the air filter.
In depths greater than 25 cm, water could
enter the transmission. This reduces the
lubricating ability of the oils and shortens
the service life of these systems.
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.
Engine, gearbox and cooling system
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 page 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 the instrument panel's
warning symbol is illuminated and there is
a text message displayed there High
engine temp Stop safely - stop the car in
a safe way and allow the engine to run at
idling speed for several minutes to cool
down.
06 During your journey
Recommendations during driving
• 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.
In the event of overheating in the gearbox
a built-in protection function is activated
which, amongst other things, illuminates
the instrument panel's warning symbol and
there is a text message displayed there
Transmission hot Reduce speed or
Transmission hot Stop safely - follow
the recommendation given and lower the
speed and stop the car in a safe way and
allow the engine to run at idling speed for
a few minutes to allow the gearbox to cool
down.
If the car overheats, the air conditioning
may be switched off temporarily.
Do not turn the engine off immediately you
stop after a hard drive.
NOTE
It is normal for the engine's cooling fan to
operate for a while after the engine has been
switched off.
Open tailgate
WARNING
Do not drive with the tailgate open. Toxic
exhaust fumes could be drawn into the car
through the cargo area.
least 15 minutes - battery charging is more
effective during driving than running the
engine at idling speed while stationary.
Before a long journey
• Check that the engine is working normally
and that fuel consumption is normal.
• Make sure that there are no leaks (fuel, oil
Do not overload the battery
or other fluid).
The electrical functions in the car load the battery to varying degrees. Avoid using the key
position II when the engine is switched off.
Instead use the I mode - which uses less
power.
• Check all bulbs and tyre tread depths.
• Carrying a warning triangle is a legal
Also, be aware of different accessories that
load the electrical system. Do not use functions
which use a lot of power when the engine is
switched off. Examples of such functions are:
Check the following in particular before the
cold season:
•
•
•
•
ventilation fan
headlamps
windscreen wiper
audio system (high volume).
If the battery voltage is low the information display shows the text Low battery Power save
mode. The energy-saving function then shuts
down certain functions or reduces certain
functions such as the ventilation fan and/or
audio system.
In which case, charge the battery by starting the engine and then running it for at
requirement in certain countries.
Winter driving
• The engine coolant 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.
06
• 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
page 379.
``
287
06 During your journey
Recommendations during driving
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 places great demands on the battery and its
capacity is reduced by the cold.
• Use washer fluid 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.
NOTE
The use of winter tyres is a legal requirement
in certain countries. Studded tyres are not
permitted in all countries.
06
Slippery driving conditions
Practise driving on slippery surfaces under
controlled conditions to learn how the car
reacts.
288
06 During your journey
Refuelling
Refuelling
Opening the fuel filler flap manually
Opening/closing the fuel cap
The fuel filler flap can be opened manually
when electric opening from the passenger
compartment is not possible.
A certain overpressure may arise in the tank in
the event of high outside temperatures. Open
the cap slowly.
1. Open/remove the side hatch in the cargo
area (same side as fuel filler flap) and locate
the green cord with handle.
• After refuelling - refit the cap and turn it
Opening/closing the fuel filler flap
Open the fuel filler flap using the button on the
lighting panel - the flap opens when the button
is released.
The arrow on the information display's
symbol reminds which side of the car
the fuel filler cap is located.
2. Pull the cord gently straight back until the
fuel filler flap folds out with a "click".
• Close the fuel filler flap by pressing it in until
a click confirms that it is closed.
IMPORTANT
Pull the wire gently - minimal force is
required to disengage the hatch lock.
until one or more clicking sounds are
heard.
06
Filling up with fuel
• Do not overfill the tank but fill until the
pump nozzle cuts out.
NOTE
Excess fuel in the tank can overflow in hot
weather.
289
06 During your journey
Fuel
General information on fuel
Fuel of a lower quality than that recommended
by Volvo must not be used as engine power
and fuel consumption is negatively affected.
WARNING
Always avoid inhaling fuel vapour and getting fuel splashes in the eyes.
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,
bioethanol and mixtures of them and diesel
are highly toxic and could cause permanent
injury or be fatal if swallowed. Seek medical
attention immediately if fuel has been swallowed.
06
WARNING
Fuel which spills onto the ground can be
ignited.
Switch off the fuel-driven heater before starting to refuel.
Never carry an activated mobile phone
when refuelling. The ring signal could cause
spark build-up and ignite petrol fumes,
leading to fire and injury.
290
IMPORTANT
Mixing different types of fuel or the use of
fuel not recommended invalidates Volvo's
guarantees, and any associated service
agreement. This applies to all engines.
NOTE: It does not apply to cars with engines
that are adapted to run on ethanol fuel (E85).
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.
Catalytic converters
The purpose of the catalytic converters is to
purify exhaust gases. They are located close to
the engine so that operating temperature is
reached quickly.
The catalytic converters consist of a monolith
(ceramic or metal) with channels. The channel
walls are lined with a thin layer of platinum/rhodium/palladium. These metals act as catalysts,
i.e. they participate in and accelerate a chemical reaction without being used up themselves.
Lambda-sondTM oxygen sensor
The Lambda-sond is part of a control system
intended to reduce emissions and improve fuel
economy.
An oxygen sensor monitors the oxygen content
of the exhaust gases leaving the engine. This
value is fed into an electronic system that continuously controls the injectors. The ratio of fuel
to air directed to the engine is continuously
adjusted. These adjustments create optimal
conditions for efficient combustion, and
together with the three-way catalytic converter
reduce harmful emissions (hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and nitrous oxides).
Petrol
Petrol must meet the EN 228 standard. Most
engines can be run with octane ratings of 95
and 98 RON. 91 RON should only be used in
exceptional cases.
• 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.
06 During your journey
Fuel
IMPORTANT
•
Always refuel with unleaded petrol so as
not to damage the catalytic converter.
•
Do not use additives not recommended
by Volvo.
Bioethanol E85
Do not modify the fuel system or its components, and do not replace components with
parts that are not specifically designed for use
with bioethanol.
WARNING
Methanol must not be used. A decal on the
inside of the fuel filler flap shows the correct
alternative fuel.
The use of components not designed for
bioethanol engines could cause fire, injury
or engine damage.
Reserve fuel can
The reserve fuel can should be filled with petrol,
see the NOTE box, page 117.
IMPORTANT
Make sure the reserve fuel can is securely
fastened and that its cap is sealed.
IMPORTANT
WARNING
Ethanol is sensitive to sparks, and explosive
gases could form in the reserve fuel can if it
is refuelled with ethanol.
Only ever use fuel that fulfils the European
diesel standard.
The sulphur content must be a maximum of
50 ppm.
Diesel
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.
At low temperatures (-6 °C to -40 °C), a paraffin
precipitate may form in the diesel fuel, which
may lead to ignition problems. Special diesel
fuel designed for low temperatures around
freezing point is available from the major oil
companies. This fuel is less viscous at low temperatures and reduces the risk of paraffin precipitate.
The risk of condensation in the fuel tank is
reduced if the tank is kept well filled. When
1
refuelling, check that the area around the fuel
filler pipe is clean. Avoid spilling fuel onto the
paintwork. Wash off any spillage with detergent and water.
IMPORTANT
Diesel type fuels that must not be used:
•
•
•
•
Special additives
Marine diesel fuel
Heating oil
FAME1 (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.
06
Empty tank
The design of the fuel system in a diesel engine
means that if the vehicle runs out of fuel, the
Diesel fuel may contain a certain amount of FAME, but further amounts must not be added.

Fuel
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 page 82).
2. Press the START button without depressing the brake and/or clutch pedal.
3. Wait approx. 1 minute.
4. To start the engine: Depress the brake and/
or clutch pedal and then press the
START button again.
NOTE
06
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.
292
The fuel filter must be drained at the intervals
specified in the Service and Warranty Booklet
or if you suspect that the car has been filled
with contaminated fuel.
IMPORTANT
Certain special additives remove the water
separation in the fuel filter.
Diesel particle filter (DPF)
Diesel cars are equipped with a particle filter,
which results in more efficient emission control. 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.
Regeneration of the filter takes place automatically at an interval of approximately
300-900 km depending on driving conditions.
Regeneration 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
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
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 warning triangle on the
instrument panel illuminates, and the message
Soot filter full See manual is shown on the
instrument panel display.
Start regeneration of the filter by driving the car
until the engine reaches normal operating temperature, preferably on a main road or motorway. The car should then be driven for approximately 20 minutes more.
NOTE
A smaller reduction of engine power may be
noticed temporarily during regeneration.
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 fills up with particles then it can
be difficult to start the engine and the filter
will be incapable of functioning. Then there
is a risk that the filter will have to be
replaced.

Fuel consumption and emissions of
carbon dioxide
Fuel consumption figures may change if the car
is equipped with extra equipment that affects
the car's weight. See information on weights
page 372 and table page 383.
The manner in which the car is driven, and
other non-technical factors can also affect fuel
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.

Loading
General information on loading
Payload depends on the car's kerb weight. The
total of the weight of the passengers and all
accessories reduces the car's payload by a
corresponding weight. For more detailed information on weights, see page 372.
The tailgate is opened via a button on
the lighting panel or the remote control key, see page 61.
WARNING
The car's driving characteristics change
depending on the weight and distribution of
the load.
To bear in mind when loading
• Position the load firmly against the rear
06
seat's backrest.
Note that objects must not prevent the function
of the WHIPS system for the front seats if any
of the rear seat's backrests is folded down,see
page 29.
• Centre the load.
• Heavy objects should be placed as low as
possible. Avoid placing heavy loads on
lowered backrests.
• Cover sharp edges with something soft to
avoid damaging the upholstery.
294
• Secure all loads to the load retaining eyelets with straps or web lashings.
Front seat
The passenger seat backrest can also be
folded for an extra long load, see page 84.
WARNING

frontal collision at a speed of 50 km/h, carry
the impact of an item weighing 1000 kg.
WARNING
Roof load
Using load carriers
To avoid damaging the car and for maximum
possible safety while driving, the load carriers
designed by Volvo are recommended.
The protection provided by the inflatable
curtain in the headlining may be compromised or eliminated by high loads.
Carefully follow the installation instructions
supplied with the carriers.
•
• Check periodically that the load carriers

and load are properly secured. Lash the
load securely with retaining straps.
WARNING
Always secure the load. During heavy braking the load may otherwise shift, causing
injury to the car's occupants.
Cover sharp edges and sharp corners with
something soft.
Switch off the engine and apply the parking
brake when loading/unloading long items.
Otherwise you may accidentally knock the
gear lever or gear selector with the load into
a drive position - and the car could then
move off.
• Distribute the load evenly over the load
carriers. Put the heaviest objects at the
bottom.
• The size of the area exposed to the wind,
and therefore fuel consumption, increase
with the size of the load.
• Drive gently. Avoid quick acceleration,
heavy braking and hard cornering.

Driving with a trailer
General
Payload depends on the car's kerb weight. The
total of the weight of the passengers and all
accessories, e.g. towbar, reduces the car's
payload by a corresponding weight. For more
detailed information on weights, see
page 372.
If the towing bracket is mounted by Volvo, then
the car is delivered with the necessary equipment for driving with a trailer.
• The car's towing bracket must be of an
approved type.
• If the towbar is retrofitted, check with your
Volvo dealer that the car is fully equipped
for driving with a trailer.
• Distribute the load on the trailer so that the
weight on the towing bracket complies
with the specified maximum towball load.
• Increase the tyre pressure to the recommended pressure for a full load. For tyre
pressure label location, see page 319.
• 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%.
Trailer cable
An adapter is required if the car's towing
bracket has 13 pin electrics and the trailer has
7 pin electrics. Use an adapter cable approved
by Volvo. Make sure the cable does not drag
on the ground.

stationary the rear of the car lowers slightly,
which is normal.
Trailer weights
For information on Volvo's permitted trailer
weights, see page 372.
NOTE
The stated maximum permitted trailer
weights are those permitted by Volvo.
National vehicle regulations can further limit
trailer weights and speeds. Towbars can be
certified for higher towing weights than the
car can actually tow.
WARNING
Follow the stated recommendations for
trailer weights. Otherwise, the car and trailer
may be difficult to control in the event of
sudden movement and braking.

Trailer Stability Assist - TSA*
The TSA system (Trailer Stability Assist) serves
to stabilise the car and trailer combination if it
begins to snake.
06
The TSA function is part of the DSTC system
(Dynamic Stability and Traction Control), see
page 172.
Function
The snaking phenomenon can occur with any
car/trailer combination. Normally, snaking
occurs at extremely 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.:
306
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.
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 60 to 160 km/h.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
NOTE
TSA function is switched off if the driver
selects Sport mode, see page 172.
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 is working.

Attaching the towing eye
Take out the towing eye that is located
under the floor hatch in the cargo area.
The cover for the towing eye's attachment
point is available in two variants which
must be opened in different ways:
• Open the variant with a recess using a
coin or similar inserted in the recess,
turning it outwards. Then turn out the
cover completely and remove it.
06
• The second variant has a marking along
one side or in a corner: Press the marking with a finger and fold out the opposite side/corner at the same time using
a coin or similar - the cover turns around
its axis and can then be removed.
Screw the towing eye right in up to its
flange. Turn in the towing eye firmly e.g.
using the wheel wrench.
308
The towing eye is only designed for towing
on roads - not for pulling the car unstuck or
out of a ditch. Call a recovery service for
recovery assistance.
NOTE
On certain cars with towbar fitted the towing
eye cannot be attached in the rear bracket.
Attach the towrope in the towbar.

WHEELS AND TYRES
07 Wheels and tyres
General
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.
Tyres with the greatest tread depth should
always be fitted to the rear of the car (to
decrease the risk of skidding).
New tyres
NOTE
Ensure that tyres of the same type and
dimensions, and also the same make, are
fitted to all four wheels.
Direction of rotation
Follow the recommended tyre pressures
specified in the tyre pressure table, see
page 389.
Tyre care
G021778
Tyre age
The arrow shows the tyre's direction of rotation.
07
312
Tyres with a tread pattern which are designed
to only turn in one direction have the direction
of rotation marked with an arrow. The tyre must
always rotate in the same direction throughout
its lifespan. Tyres should only be switched
between front and rear positions, never
between left and right-hand sides, or vice
versa. If the tyres are fitted incorrectly, the car's
braking characteristics and capacity to force
rain and slush out of the way are adversely
affected.
All tyres older than 6 years old should be
checked by an expert even if they seem
undamaged. Tyres age and decompose, even
if they are hardly ever or never used. The function can therefore be affected. This applies to
all tyres that are stored for future use. Examples of external signs which indicate that the
tyre is unsuitable for use are cracks or discoloration.
Tyres are perishable. After a few years they
begin to harden at the same time as the friction
capacity/characteristics gradually deteriorate.
For this reason, aim to get as fresh tyres as
possible when you replace them. This is especially important with regard to winter tyres. The
last four digits in the sequence mean the week
and year of manufacture. This is the tyre's
DOT marking (Department of Transportation),
and this is stated with four digits, for example
1510. The tyre in the illustration 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.
07 Wheels and tyres
General
The correct tyre pressure results in more even
wear, see page 319. 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 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 10 000 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.
Wheels should be stored lying down or hanging
up - and not standing up.
WARNING
A damaged tyre can lead to loss of control
of the car.
Only use rims that are tested and approved by
Volvo and which are Volvo genuine accessories. Check the torque with a torque wrench.
Tyres with tread wear indicators
Locking wheel bolts*
Locking wheel bolts* can be used on both aluminium and steel rims. Under the cargo area
floor there is space for the sleeve for the lockable wheel bolts.
Tools
G021829
Wear and maintenance
Tread wear indicators.
Tread wear indicators are narrow treadless
bands across the width of the tread. On the
side of the tyre are the letters TWI (Tread Wear
Indicator). When the tyre's tread depth is down
to 1.6 mm, the tread depth will be level in height
with the tread wear indicators. Change to new
tyres as soon as possible. Remember that
tyres with little tread depth provide very poor
grip in rain and snow.
Rims and wheel bolts
IMPORTANT
The wheel bolts must be tightened to
140 Nm. Overtightening can damage the
nuts and the bolts.
Located under the cargo area floor are the
car's towing eye, jack* and wheel wrench*.
There is also space for the sleeve for the lockable wheel bolts.

General
The original jack should only be used for
changing to the spare wheel. The jack's thread
must always be well greased.
Tools - returning into place
IMPORTANT
The tools and jack* must be stored in the
intended location in the car's cargo area
when not in use.
NOTE
The legal provisions for the use of studded
tyres vary from country to country.

NOTE
If the floor hatch in the cargo area floor is not
closed then privacy locking does not work,
see page 53.
G029336
Winter tyres
The tools and jack* must be returned to their
correct places after use. The jack needs to be
cranked together to the correct position in
order to have space.
The foam block and spare wheel are replaced
in the reverse order to taking out.
07
Note that there is an arrow on the upper foam
block. It must point forwards in the car.
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.
Using snow chains
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.
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.
314
Road conditions with ice, slush and low temperatures place considerably higher demands
on tyres than summer conditions. Volvo therefore recommends not to drive on winter tyres
that have a tread depth of less than 4 millimetres.
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
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.

The only exception to these conditions is winter tyres (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.

Tyre pressure
Tyre pressure
Fuel economy, ECO pressure
At speeds under 160 km/h, the general tyre
pressure is recommended (applies for both full
load and light load) in order to obtain optimum
fuel economy.
Checking the tyre pressure
The tyre pressures must be checked every
month.
G021830
This also applies to the car's spare wheel.
The tyre pressure decal on the driver's side
door pillar (between frame and rear door)
shows which pressures the tyres should have
at different loads and speed conditions. This is
also specified in the tyre pressure table, see
page 389.
• Tyre pressure for the car's recommended
tyre dimension
• ECO pressure1
• Spare wheel tyre pressure (Temporary
Spare)
NOTE
Temperature differences change the
tyre pressure.
1
Check tyre pressures on cold tyres. "Cold
tyres" means the tyres are the same temperature as the ambient temperature. After several
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
07
Tyre pressure decreases over time, this is a
natural phenomenon. Tyre pressure also
varies depending on ambient temperature.
ECO pressure results in improved fuel economy.

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,

Contact a Volvo dealer for more information.
Change the engine oil in accordance with the
intervals specified in the Service and Warranty
Booklet.
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 than that specified on the decal,
see page 378.
Checking the oil level in a new car is especially
important before the first scheduled oil change.
Volvo recommends checking the oil level every
2 500 km. The most accurate measurements
are made on a cold engine before starting. The
measurement will be inaccurate if taken immediately after the engine is switched off. The
dipstick will indicate that the level is too low
because the oil has not had time to flow down
into the oil sump.
For capacities, see page 379 and onwards.

Wait....
The figures 1-4 represent filling level. Do not fill
more oil if filling level (3) or (4) is shown. Recommended filling level is 4.
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.
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.
08 Maintenance and service
Engine compartment
For capacities and for standards regarding
water quality, see page 381.
•
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.
IMPORTANT
Brake and clutch fluid
A high content of chlorine, chlorides
and other salts may cause corrosion in
the cooling system.
Checking the level
•
Always use coolant with anti-corrosion
agent as recommended by Volvo.
Brake and clutch fluid have a common reservoir. The level must be between the MIN and
MAX marks that are visible inside the reservoir.
Check the level regularly.
•
Ensure that the coolant mixture is 50%
water and 50% coolant.
Change the brake fluid every other year or at
every other regular service.
•
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 ready-mixed
coolant.
For capacities and recommended fluid grade,
see page 381. The fluid should be changed
annually on cars driven in conditions requiring
hard, frequent braking, such as driving in
mountains or tropical climates with high
humidity.
•
The engine must only be run with a wellfilled cooling system. High temperatures may occur, causing a risk of damage (cracks) to the cylinder head.
WARNING
If the brake fluid is under the MIN level in the
brake fluid reservoir, do not drive further
before topping up the brake fluid. Volvo recommends that the reason for the loss of
brake fluid is investigated by an authorised
Volvo workshop.

08 Maintenance and service
Battery
Operation
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.
• Never disconnect the battery when the
engine is running.
• Check that the cables to the battery are
correctly connected and properly tightened.
WARNING
•
08
344
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.
NOTE
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.
To maintain the battery in good condition, at
least 15 minutes of driving/week is recommended or that the battery is connected to
a battery charger with automatic trickle
charging.
A battery that is kept fully charged has a
maximum service life.
IMPORTANT
Never use a quick charger to charge the
battery.
IMPORTANT
If the following instruction is not observed
then the energy saving function for infotainment may be temporarily disengaged, and/
or the message in the information display
about the main battery's state of charge
may be temporarily inapplicable, following
the connection of an external battery or battery charger:
•
The negative battery terminal on the
car's main 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 the section "Start assistance" - for a
description of how the cable clamps must
be attached.

08 Maintenance and service
Battery
IMPORTANT
If the following instruction is not observed
then the Start/Stop function may temporarily cease to work after the connection of an
external battery or battery charger:
•
The negative battery terminal on the
car's main 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 the section "Start assistance" - for a
description of how the cable clamps must
be attached.
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 autostop. 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.
For more information about recharging the
battery, see the section "Battery" in the
chapter "Maintenance and service".

08 Maintenance and service
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.
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.
2. Pull out the fuse and check from the side
to see whether the curved wire has blown.
3. If this is the case, replace it with a new fuse
of the same colour and amperage.
WARNING
Never use a foreign object, or a fuse with an
amperage higher than that specified when
replacing a fuse. This could cause significant damage to the electrical system and
possibly lead to fire.

Car care
Washing the car
IMPORTANT
Wash the car as soon as it becomes dirty.
Wash the car in a car wash with oil separator.
Use car shampoo.
Dirty headlamps have impaired functionality. Clean them regularly, when refuelling for
example.
• 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.
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.
• Hose down the underbody.
• Rinse the entire car to remove loose dirt.
High-pressure washing
For cleaning:
Testing the brakes
Dry the car using a clean, soft chamois or
a water scraper.
• Use cold degreasing agent on very dirty
WARNING
Always have the engine cleaned by a workshop. There is a risk of fire if the engine is
hot.

surfaces.
soap solution or car shampoo.
08
NOTE
Asphalt, dust and salt residue on wiper blades,
as well as insects, ice etc. on the windscreen,
impair the service life of wiper blades.
Wash using a sponge, car shampoo and
plenty of lukewarm water.
• Clean the wiper blades with a lukewarm
•
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.
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.
Do not spray directly onto the locks.
•
Automatic car washes
Cleaning the wiper blades
Set the wiper blades in service position,
see page 342.
NOTE
Wash the wiper blades and windscreen regularly with lukewarm soap solution or car
shampoo.
Do not use any strong solvents.
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 lin-

ings 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.
IMPORTANT
Avoid waxing and polishing on plastic and
rubber.
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.
Polishing and waxing
Water-repellent coating*
Polish and wax the car if the paintwork is dull
or to give the paintwork extra protection.
Never use products such as car wax,
degreaser or similar on glass surfaces as this could ruin their water-repellent
properties.
The car does not need to be polished until it is
at least one year old. However, the car can be
waxed during this time. Do not polish or wax
the car in direct sunlight.
Wash and dry the car thoroughly before you
begin polishing or waxing. Clean off asphalt
and tar stains using tar remover or white spirit.
More stubborn stains can be removed using
fine rubbing paste designed for car paintwork.
Polish first with a polish and then wax with liquid or solid wax. Follow the instructions on the
packaging carefully. Many preparations contain both polish and wax.
IMPORTANT
Only paint treatment recommended by
Volvo should be used. Other treatment such
as preserving, sealing, protection, lustre
sealing or similar could damage the paintwork. Paintwork damage caused by such
treatments is not covered by Volvo warranty.
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.
There is natural wear of the water-repellent
coating.
Treatment with a special finishing agent available from Volvo dealers is recommended in
order to maintain the water-repellent properties. This should be used first after three years
and then each year.
Rustproofing – inspection and
maintenance
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.
08
``
* Option/accessory, for more information, see Introduction.
361
08 Maintenance and service
Car care
Under normal conditions the rustproofing does
not require treatment for approximately 12
years. After this period, it should be treated at
three-year intervals. Volvo recommends that
you engage an authorised Volvo workshop for
assistance if the car needs further treatment.
Dirt and road salt can lead to corrosion so it is
important to keep the car clean. The car's rustproofing needs to be checked regularly and
touched-up if necessary in order for it to be
maintained.
Cleaning the interior
Only use cleaning agents and car care products recommended by Volvo. Clean regularly
and follow the instructions included with the
car care product.
Vacuuming is important prior to using cleaning
agents.
Carpets and cargo area
Remove inlaid carpets for separate cleaning of
the floor carpet and the inlaid carpets. Use a
vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt.
Each inlay mat is secured with pins.
08
Take hold of the inlay mat at each pin and
lift the mat straight up.
Fit the inlay mat in place by pressing it in at
each pin.
362
WARNING
Before setting off check that the inlaid mat
in the driver area is firmly affixed and
secured in the pins in order to avoid getting
caught adjacent to and under the pedals.
A special textile cleaner is recommended for
stains on the floor mat after vacuuming. Floor
mats should be cleaned with agents recommended by your Volvo dealer!
Stains on fabric upholstery and roof
upholstery
A special fabric cleaning agent, available from
authorised Volvo dealers, is recommended to
avoid impairing the fire retardant qualities of
the upholstery.
regular cleaning is required in order to maintain
both characteristics and appearance. Volvo
offers a comprehensive product for the cleaning and treatment of leather upholstery which,
when used in accordance with the instructions,
preserves the leather's protective coating.
After a period of use the natural appearance of
the leather will nevertheless emerge, depending more or less on the surface texture of the
leather. This is a natural maturing of the leather
and shows that it is a natural product.
To achieve best results Volvo recommends
cleaning and the application of protective
cream once to four times per year (or more if
necessary). The Volvo Leather Care kit is available from your Volvo dealer.
IMPORTANT
IMPORTANT
•
Certain items of coloured clothing (for
example, jeans and suede garments)
may stain the upholstery.
•
Never use strong solvents. Such products may damage fabric, vinyl and
leather upholstery.
Sharp objects and Velcro may damage the
fabric upholstery.
Treating stains on leather upholstery
Volvo's leather upholstery is chromium-free
and is treated to preserve its original appearance.
Leather upholstery ages and acquires a beautiful patina over time. The leather is refined and
processed so that it retains its natural characteristics. It is given a protective coating, but

Weights
Kerb weight includes the driver, the fuel tank
90% full and all fluids.
The weight of passengers and accessories,
and towball load (when a trailer is hitched, see
table page 372) influences the payload and is
not included in the kerb weight.
WARNING
The car's driving characteristics change
depending on how heavily it is loaded and
how the load is distributed.
Permitted max. load = Gross vehicle weight Kerb weight.
NOTE
The documented kerb weight applies to
cars in the standard version - i.e. a car without extra equipment or accessories. This
means that for every accessory added the
loading capacity of the car is reduced correspondingly by the weight of the accessory.
For information on decal location, see page 368.
Examples of accessories that reduce loading capacity are the Kinetic/Momentum/
Summum equipment levels, as well as other
accessories such as Towbar, Load carriers,
Space box, Audio system, Auxiliary lamps,
GPS, Fuel-driven heater, Safety grille, Carpets, Cargo cover, Power seats, etc.

Adverse driving conditions
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 more frequently for long
journeys:
•
•
•
•
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 Castrol oil products.
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 emissions of
carbon dioxide
consumption. For further information, please
refer to the regulations referred to1.
Fuel consumption and emission values in the
table above are based on specific EU cycles1,
that apply to cars with kerb weight in the basic
version and without extra equipment. The car's
weight may increase depending on equipment.
This, as well as how heavily the car is loaded,
increases fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
Large deviations in fuel consumption may arise
in a comparison with the EU driving cycles1
which are used in the certification of the car
and on which the consumption figures in the
table are based.
There are several reasons for increased fuel
consumption compared with the table's values. Examples of this are:
• 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
1
386
To bear in mind
Tips that the driver can use in order to reduce
consumption:
• Drive gently and avoid unnecessary acceleration as well as braking too hard.
• Drive with the correct air pressure in the
tyres and check this regularly - select ECO
tyre pressure for best results, see the tyre
pressure table on page 389.
• Choice of tyres can affect fuel consumption - seek advice on suitable tyres from a
dealer.
See further information and more advice on
pages 14 and 286.
See page 290 for general information on fuel.
Official fuel consumption figures are based on two standardised driving cycles in a laboratory environment ("EU driving cycles") all in accordance with EU Directive 80/1268/EEC (Euro 4), EU Regulation
no 692/2008 (Euro 5) and UN ECE Regulation no 101. The regulations cover the driving cycles for urban driving and extra-urban driving. - Urban driving - the measurement starts with cold starting
the engine. The driving is simulated. - Extra-urban driving - the car is accelerated and braked at speeds between 0-120 km/h. The driving is simulated. - V70 with the D5 engine and 6-speed manual
transmission or DRIVe engine and 6-speed manual transmission, are started in 2nd gear. The value for combined driving, which is given in the table, according to legislation, is a combination of
urban driving and extra-urban driving. CO2 emission - to calculate the carbon dioxide emissions from the two drive cycles, the exhaust gases are collected. These are then analysed and give the
value for CO2 emissions.
