Unique AttributesEdit

  • Adaptive cruise control with distance alert - alerts the driver if the XC60 is approaching a vehicle moving in the same direction with a lower speed and readies the brakes for emergency braking. For most SUV they tend to rollover. Not highly but they aren't build for sharp turns. The XC60 has a feature that senses an impending rollover and then activates the curtain air bags thus cushioning the blow.
