Is there anything new coming out from Volvo?

Gary Jaffarian explains that the 2018 XC60 and S90 are the newest models with amazing safety features and technology, not yet seen in any other vehicle, including semi-autonomous driving.

The newest CrossoverXC60

We are very excited about the new 2018 XC60 which arrives this fall. It looks like a miniaturized, more athletic version of the XC90.

The drivetrain is available in 3different models: a 250-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder (T5); 312-hp, turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder (T6); and a 400-hp plug-in hybrid with four-cylinder engine and electric motor (T8). According to a review on cars.com, “The redesigned XC60 adds new styling, technology and a few exciting safety updates that advance Volvo’s safety technology further along on the road towards autonomous driving.” (Volvo is planning to market self-driving “autonomous” vehicles to the public by 2021 and is considered a leader in this technology.)

The large touchscreen first seen in the XC90 and S90 is available in the XC60 with XC60 insideredesigned screens and graphics. There are also updates to the Volvo On Call mobile app, which has the ability to send navigation directions to the vehicle from a calendar or helping to locate your vehicle after it’s been parked.

A new safety system called Steering Assist has been added for 2018. Steering Assist is used by several of the XC60’s safety systems — including the City Safety system, which helps to avoid collisions with vehicles, pedestrians and other large objects. The blind spot warning system also uses Steering Assist to prevent a lane change that will result in a collision, and the new Oncoming Lane Mitigation systems uses it to help prevent head-on collisions.

Volvo’s Pilot Assist, a semi-autonomous driver assistance system that will handle the steering, acceleration and braking at speeds of up to 80 mph will also be available. This is truly an advancement in safety and technology.

This is also the first Volvo model with a “CleanZone” It removes pollutants and particles from the outside environment to keep the air fresh inside. Now that’s a real differentiator from the competition!

The newest luxury sedanVolvoS-90 Momentum

Volvo’s newest luxury sedan vehicle is the S90 and it is available with three different engines and is available as a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Two of the models are available with an in-line 4-cylinder turbocharged engine and two models are both turbocharged and supercharged. Its contemporary design and beauty rivals any luxury sedan on the market and includes all the top safety features for which Volvo is best known throughout the decades. Their new models are a far cry from the old boxy vehicles, but the consistent reputation remains that Volvo makes perhaps the safest vehicles on the market today. The S90 is a finalist for North American Car of the Year. (Last year it was Volvo’s XC90.)

The basic S90 Momentum model includes: volvo-s90-luxury-sedan-technology-f1-all_d

• Dual Visible Tailpipes w/Chrome Sleeves
• Front Grille that is in a high-gloss black
• Pilot Assist – Semi Autonomous Drive System w/Adaptive Cruise Control
• Dark Flame Birch Wood Inlays
• 9-inch touch-screen display
• Leather upholstery
• CleanZone technology filters dust, pollen, particles, and odors while automatically monitoring pollutant levels. Now, the air you breathe inside your car is actually cleaner than the air outside.

Volvo is just an amazing company— combining the best of technology, safety, innovation, technology and design. What will they think of next?

Call or book a test drive on line at Jaffarian Volvo. Volvo is now offering test drive incentives such as $50 gift cards. There are also special incentives for both purchasing or leasing these luxury vehicles. We have nearly 20 of the 2018 models in stock already.
