As Volvo has built a reputation for building some of the safest cars in the world, it has fitted the V60 with City Safety with Autobrake - which uses autonomous emergency braking and hazard detection systems - and Pilot Assist, which can reduce driver fatigue as the vehicle can perform all major driving functions by itself at speeds up to 80mph on well-marked roads. The new Volvo V60 estate has been revealed, following on from the XC60 SUV.

The driver assist features have received a boost thanks to the semi-autonomous Pilot Assist technology, which offers assistance with steering, acceleration and braking. "The V60 really is the central point of the Volvo brand", said Robin Page, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Cars.

Volvo is renowned for its supreme safety tech, so it comes as no surprise that the V60 is equipped with all manner of hi-tech driver assists.
