Auto-brake

Auto-brake  - Function - Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection* - Comfort and driving pleasure - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

If a collision is imminent and the driver has not applied the brakes or begun to steer around the vehicle or pedestrian, the auto-brake function is activated without the driver pressing the brake pedal. Full brake force is applied to help reduce the vehicle’s speed when the collision occurs or limited brake force is applied if this is sufficient to avoid the collision.

NOTE NOTE

The auto-brake and brake support functions are always on and cannot be turned off.
