Volvo has released details of parking assist features to be seen on board 2015 Volvo XC90 slated for launch later this year. With these features, parking of the Volvo XC90 in any of the tightest spots and without even touching another vehicles will be achieved. claims the company.
Volvo XC90 SUV goes on display at 2014 Paris Motor Show this October. To include Park Assist Pilot with automatic reversing into parking bay and entry and exit from parallel parking spot, the system will incorporate 12 ultrasonic sensors placed all around the XC90. The system also takes over the steering wheel while driver is left with controlling gearbox and gas pedal.
Parking Assist Tricks seen on board the 2015 Volvo XC90 will come into play when parallel parking spot measure a minimum of 1.2 times length of car while in bay parking, the vacant slot should be as wide as the car plus 1 meter taking a total to 3.3 feet. These parking tricks will come in handy when the driver is not as adept in manoeuvring the new XC90 and also come with Birds Eye View displayed on a screen.

Traffic Signal Alert is also another feature seen on board the XC90 to caution drivers of an upcoming traffic signal 30 meters ahead.

City Safety auto braking system is an autonomous braking system that comes into effect at junctions and is designed to prevent accidents when one vehicle crosses in front of the other. On detection of this and to avoid potential crash, XC90 brakes automatically while the system also brings the XC90 to an immediate halt when sensing collision with a casual pedestrian or careless cyclist.
