Introduction

Important information

Reading the Owner’s Manual

Preface

A good way of getting to know your new car is to read the owner’s manual, ideally before your first journey. This will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with new functions, to see how best to handle the car in different situations, and to make the best use of all the car’s features. Please pay attention to the safety instructions contained in the manual.

The equipment described in the owner’s manual is not present in all cars. In addition to standard equipment, this manual also describes options (factory fitted equipment) and certain accessories (retrofitted extra equipment).

Volvo cars are adapted for the varying requirements of different markets, as well as for national or local legal requirements and regulations.

The specifications, design features and illustrations in this owner’s manual are not binding. We reserve the right to make modifications without prior notice.

© Volvo Car Corporation

Option

All types of options are marked with an asterisk * in the Owner’s Manual.

Certain functionality and equipment can be purchased as options when a new car is ordered. The range of options may apply to all cars or sometimes only to certain variants and/or certain markets.

Contact your authorised Volvo dealer for more information.

Special texts

WARNING

Texts marked with WARNING advise of risk of personal injury.

IMPORTANT

Texts marked with IMPORTANT advise of risk of material damage.

NOTE

Texts marked with NOTE give advice or tips that facilitate use of features and functions for example.

Footnote

There is footnote information in the Owner’s Manual that is located at the bottom of the page or directly adjacent to a table. This information is an addition to the text that it refers to via a number.

Message texts

There are displays in the car that show text messages. These text messages are highlighted in the Owner’s Manual by means of the text being slightly larger and printed in grey. Example DIM text.

Procedure lists

Procedures where action must be taken in a certain sequence are numbered in the Owner’s Manual.

When there is a series of illustrations for step-by-step instructions each step is numbered in the same way as the corresponding illustration.

Arrows appear numbered and unnumbered and are used to illustrate a movement.

If there is no series of illustrations for step- by-step instructions then the different steps are numbered with normal numbers.

Recording data

One or more of the computers in your Volvo are capable of recording detailed information. This information is intended for use in research to enhance safety and for diagnosing faults in some of the in-car systems. The data may include details regarding seatbelt use by the driver and passengers, the functions of various vehicle systems and modules, and status information about the engine, throttle, steering, brakes and other systems. This data can also include details of the way the car is driven. This type of information can include, without being limited to, specific details such as vehicle speed, the use of the brake and accelerator pedals and steering wheel position. This latter type of data can be stored for a limited period while the car is being driven and subsequently during a collision or a near-collision. Volvo Car Corporation will not disclose the stored information without consent. However, Volvo Car Corporation may be forced to disclose the information due to national legislation. Volvo Car Corporation and its authorised workshops may also read and use the information.

Accessories and extra equipment

The incorrect connection and installation of accessories can negatively affect the car’s electrical system. Certain accessories only function when their associated software is installed in the car’s computer system.

Always contact an authorised Volvo workshop before installing accessories which are connected to, or affect, the electrical system.

Introduction

Environment

Volvo Cars’ environmental philosophy

Environmental care, safety and quality are the three core values which influence all operations of the Volvo Car Corporation. We also believe that our customers share our consideration for the environment.

Your Volvo complies with strict international environmental standards and is also manufactured in one of the cleanest and most resource-efficient plants in the world. Volvo Car Corporation has global ISO certification, which includes the environmental standard (ISO 14001) covering factories, central functions, as well as several of our other units. We also set requirements for our partners so

8

that they work systematically with environmental issues.

EPI (Environmental Product Information) is supplied for all Volvo models. Here you can see how the environment is affected during the entire lifecycle of the car.

Read more at www.volvocars.com/EPI

Fuel consumption

Volvo cars have competitive fuel consumption in each of their respective classes. Lower fuel consumption generally results in

lower emission of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.

It is possible for the driver to influence fuel consumption. For more information read under the heading, Reducing environmental impact below.

Efficient emission control

Your Volvo is manufactured following the concept "Clean inside and out" – a concept that encompasses a clean interior environment as well as highly efficient emission control. In many cases the exhaust emissions are well below the applicable standards.

Introduction

Environment

Clean air in the passenger compartment

A passenger compartment filter prevents dust and pollen from entering the passenger compartment via the air intake.

A sophisticated air quality system, IAQS* (Interior Air Quality System) ensures that the incoming air is cleaner than the air in the traffic outside.

The system consists of an electronic sensor and a carbon filter. The incoming air is monitored continuously and if there is an increase in the level of certain unhealthy gases such as carbon monoxide then the air intake is closed. Such a situation may arise in heavy traffic, queues and tunnels for example.

The entry of nitrous oxides, ground-level ozone and hydrocarbons is prevented by the carbon filter.

Textile standard

The interior of a Volvo is designed to be pleasant and comfortable, even for people with contact allergies and for asthma sufferers. Extreme attention has been given to choosing environmentally-compatible materials. This means that they also fulfil the requirements in the Öko-Tex 100 standard1, a major advance towards a healthier passenger compartment environment.

1 More information on www.oekotex.com

Öko-Tex certification covers seatbelts, carpets and fabrics for example. The leather in the upholstery undergoes chromium-free tanning with natural plant substances and fulfils the certification requirements.

Volvo workshops and the environment

Regular maintenance creates the conditions for a long service life with low fuel consumption for your car. In this way you contribute to a cleaner environment. When Volvo’s workshops are entrusted with the service and maintenance of your car it becomes part of our system. We make clear demands regarding the way in which our workshops are designed in order to prevent spills and discharges into the environment. Our workshop staff have the knowledge and the tools required to guarantee good environmental care.

Reducing environmental impact

You can easily help reduce environmental impact, for example, by driving economically, by purchasing eco-labelled car care products and by servicing and maintaining the car according to the instructions in the owner’s manual.

The following advice will help you to do your bit for the environment: (for further advice on how you can protect the environment and drive economically, see page 160):

Decrease fuel consumption by choosing ECO tyre pressure, see page 215.

A roof load and ski box increase air resistance, leading to higher fuel consumption. Remove them directly after use.

Remove unnecessary items from the car. The greater the load the higher the fuel consumption.

If the car is equipped with an engine block heater use it for a few hours before starting from cold. This reduces fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.

Drive gently and avoid braking too hard.

Drive in the highest gear possible. Low engine speeds result in lower fuel consumption.

Use engine braking to slow down.

Avoid letting the engine idle. Pay attention to local regulations. Switch off the engine when stationary for longer periods.

Always dispose of environmentally hazardous waste, such as batteries and oils, in an environmentally safe manner. If uncertain about disposal, consult an authorised Volvo workshop for advice.

Service your car regularly.

High speed increases consumption considerably due to increased wind resistance. A doubling of speed increases wind resistance four times.

These hints will help reduce fuel consumption without increasing travel time or lessening the enjoyment of driving. Apart from being kind to your car, you’ll be saving money - and the Earth’s resources.

The car has an SRS airbag (Supplemental Restraint System) on the driver’s side to supplement the protection afforded by the seatbelt. This airbag is fitted into the centre of the steering wheel. The steering wheel is marked

SRS AIRBAG.

WARNING

The seatbelts and airbags interact. If a seatbelt is not used or is used incorrectly, this may diminish the protection provided by the airbag in the event of a collision.

The car has an airbag to supplement the protection afforded by the seatbelt on the passenger side. This airbag is folded up into a compartment above the glovebox. The cover panel is marked SRS AIRBAG.

WARNING

To minimise the risk of injury if the airbag deploys, passengers must sit as upright as possible with their feet on the floor and backs against the backrest. Seatbelts must be secured.

WARNING

Do not put objects in front of or above the dashboard where the passenger airbag is located.

the airbag, see page 18.

 

SRS system, left-hand drive

G018666

SRS system, right-hand drive

The SRS system consists of airbags and sensors. A sufficiently violent collision trips the sensors and the airbag(s) are inflated with hot

gas. To cushion the impact, the airbag deflates when compressed. When this occurs, smoke escapes into the car. This is completely normal. The entire process, including inflation and deflation of the airbag, occurs within tenths of a second.

WARNING

Repairs must only be performed by an authorised Volvo workshop. Any interference in the airbag system could cause malfunction and result in serious personal injury.

NOTE

The sensors react differently depending on the course of the collision and whether or not the seatbelts on the driver and passenger side are used.

It is therefore possible that only one (or none) of the airbags may inflate in a collision. The airbag system senses the force of the collision on the car and adapts accordingly so that one or more airbags is deployed.

The capacity of the airbags is also adapted to the collision force to which the vehicle is subjected.

Never hang or attach heavy items onto the handles in the roof. The hook is only designed for light clothing (not for solid objects such as umbrellas for example).

Do not screw or install anything onto the car’s headlining, door pillars or side panels. This could compromise the intended protection. Only ever use Volvo genuine parts that are approved for placement in these areas.

WARNING

Do not load the car higher than 50 mm under the top edge of the side windows. Otherwise, the intended protection of the inflatable curtain, which is concealed in the headlining, may be compromised.

WARNING

The inflatable curtain is a supplement to the seatbelts.

Always use a seatbelt.

21018

The whiplash protection system (WHIPS) consists of energy absorbing backrests and specially designed head restraints in the front seats. The system is actuated by a rear-end collision, where the angle and speed of the collision, and the nature of the colliding vehicle all have an influence.

WARNING

The WHIPS system is a supplement to the seatbelts. Always use a seatbelt.

Properties of the seat

When the WHIPS system is deployed, the front seat backrests are lowered backward to alter the seating position of the driver and front seat passenger. This reduces the risk of whiplash injury.

WARNING

Never modify or repair the seat or WHIPS system yourself. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop.

For the best possible protection, the driver and front seat passenger should sit in the centre of the seat with as little space as possible between the head and the head restraint.

WARNING

If a seat has been subjected to extreme forces, such as due to a rear-end collision, the WHIPS system must be checked by an authorised Volvo workshop.

Part of the WHIPS system’s protective capacity may have been lost even if the seats appear to be undamaged. Contact an authorised Volvo workshop to have the system checked even after a minor rear-end collision.

1The bodywork of the car could be greatly deformed in a collision even without airbag deployment. A number of factors such as the rigidity and weight of the object hit, the speed of the car, the angle of the collision etc. affects how the different safety systems of the car are activated.

If the airbags have deployed, the following is recommended:

Have the car transported to an authorised Volvo workshop. Do not drive with deployed airbags.

Let an authorised Volvo workshop replace components in the car’s safety system.

Always contact a doctor.

NOTE

The SRS, SIPS, IC and belt tensioner systems are deployed only once during a collision.

WARNING

The airbag control module is located in the centre console. If the centre console is drenched with water or other liquid, disconnect the battery cables. Do not attempt to start the car since the airbags may deploy. Have the car transported to an authorised Volvo workshop.

WARNING

Never drive with deployed airbags. They can make steering difficult. Other safety systems may also be damaged. The smoke and dust created when the airbags are deployed can cause skin and eye irritation/injury after intensive exposure. In case of irritation, wash with cold water. The rapid deployment sequence and airbag fabric may cause friction and skin burns.

Safety mode

G021062

If the car is involved in a collision, the text

Safety mode - See manual may appear on the information display. This means that the car has reduced functionality. Safety mode is a protective state that is enforced when the collision may have damaged any of the car’s vital functions, such as the fuel lines, sensors for one of the safety systems, or the brake system.

Attempting to start the car

First, check that no fuel is leaking from the car. There must be no smell of fuel either.

If everything seems normal and you have checked for indications of fuel leakage, you may attempt to start the car.

01 Safety

01 Child safety

Children should sit comfortably and safely

The position of a child in the car and the choice of equipment are dictated by the child’s weight and size, for more information see page 28.

NOTE

Legislation regarding the placement of children in cars varies from country to country. Check what laws apply.

Children of all ages and sizes must always sit correctly secured in the car. Never allow a child to sit on the knee of a passenger.

Volvo’s own child safety equipment is designed for your car. Use Volvo genuine equipment to best ensure that the mounting points and attachments are correctly positioned and are sufficiently strong.

NOTE

If problems arise when fitting child safety products, contact the manufacturer for clearer instructions.

Child seats

G020739

Child seats and airbags are not compatible.

Volvo has child safety products that are designed for and tested by Volvo.

NOTE

When using child safety products it is important to read the installation instructions included.

Do not attach the straps for the child seat to the horizontal adjustment bar, springs, rails or beams under the seat. Sharp edges can damage the straps.

Allow the back of the child seat to rest against the dashboard. This applies to cars without a passenger airbag, or where the airbag is deactivated.

Location of child seats

You may place:

a child seat or booster cushion on the

front passenger seat, provided the passenger airbag1 is not activated.

a rear-facing child seat in the rear seat that uses the back of the front seat as support.

Always place a child in the rear seat if the passenger airbag is activated. A child sitting on the front passenger seat could suffer serious injury if the airbag deploys.

WARNING

Never place a child in a child seat or on a booster cushion in the front seat if the airbag (SRS) is activated.

No one shorter than 140 cm should ever sit in the front passenger seat if the airbag (SRS) is activated.

Failure to follow the advice given above can endanger the life of the child.

1For information on activated/deactivated airbag (SRS), see page 18.

01 Safety

01 Child safety

Upper mounting points for child seats

G017676

The car is equipped with upper mounting points for certain front-facing child seats. These mounting points are located on the rear of the seat.

For cars with folding head restraints on the outside seats the head restraints should be folded to facilitate the installation of this type of child seat.

For cars equipped with a cargo cover over the cargo area, the cargo cover must be removed before a child seat can be fitted in the mounting points.

The upper mounting points are primarily intended for use with front-facing child seats. Volvo recommends that small children

34

should sit in rear-facing child seats for as long as possible.

For detailed information on how the child seat should be tensioned in the upper mounting points, see the seat manufacturer’s instructions.

WARNING

The child seat’s straps must always be routed under the rear head restraints before being tensioned at the mounting point.

02 Locks and alarm

Remote control key/key blade

General

The car is supplied with two remote control keys or PCCs (Personal Car Communicator). They are used to start the car and for locking and unlocking.

More remote control keys can be ordered – up to six can be programmed and used for the same car.

The PCC has increased functionality compared with the remote control key. Only the remote control key is referred to in the remainder of this chapter when describing functions available in both the PCC and remote control key.

WARNING

If there are children in the car:

Always remember to switch off the power supply to locks, power windows and sunroof by removing the remote control key if the driver leaves the car.

Detachable key blade

A remote control key contains a detachable metal key blade for mechanical locking/unlocking of the driver’s door, glovebox and tailgate (privacy locking).

For key blade functions, see page 42.

For privacy locking, see page 43.

The key blades’ unique code is available at authorised Volvo workshops, who can order new key blades.

Loss of a remote control key

If you lose a remote control key then new ones can be ordered at an authorised Volvo workshop. The remaining remote control keys must then be taken to the workshop. The code of the missing remote control key must be erased from the system as a theft prevention measure.

The current number of keys registered to the car can be checked under Car settings Car key memory Number of keys. For a description of the menu system, see

page 104.

Key memory – door mirrors and driver’s seat*

The settings are automatically connected to each respective remote control key, see page 67 and 84.

The function can be activated/deactivated under Car settings Car key memory Seat & mirror positions. For a description of the menu system, see page 104.

For cars with Keyless drive function, see page 45.

Indicator for locking/unlocking

When the car is locked or unlocked using the remote control key, the direction indicators confirm that locking/unlocking was correctly performed:

Locking; one flash

Unlocking; two flashes.

After locking the indication is only given if all locks are activated once the doors have been closed.

The function can be activated/deactivated under Car settings Light settings Lock confirmation light or Car settings Light settings Unlock confirmation light. For a description of the menu system, see page 104.

Range

The PCC lock functions have a range of up to 20 m from the car.

The approach lighting, panic function and the functions controlled by the information button have a range of up to a maximum of

100 m from the car.

NOTE

The information button functions can be disrupted by surrounding radio waves, buildings, topographical conditions etc.

Out of PCC range

If the PCC is too far away from the car for the information to be read then the status the car was last left in is shown, without the light travelling around on the PCC.

The PCC that was last used for locking/un-

locking will show the correct status.

02

NOTE

If no indicator lamps illuminate when the information button is used then this can be because the last communication between the PCC and the car was disrupted by surrounding radio waves, buildings, topographical conditions etc.

Heart Beat Sensor

The function operates using an HBS (Heart beat sensor). HBS is a supplement to the car’s alarm system and can indicate at a distance whether anybody is in the car. This indication is only displayed if the alarm was triggered.

The HBS detects an individual’s heartbeat that is transmitted to the car’s bodywork. For this reason the function of the HBS can be disturbed in an environment subject to noise and vibration.

Keyless drive (only PCC*)

Keyless lock and ignition system

G017871

The keyless drive function in the PCC allows the car to be unlocked, driven and locked without the need for a key. You simply have to have the PCC with you. The system makes it easier and more convenient to open the car, for example when your hands are full.

The car’s two PCCs incorporate the Keyless function. Additional PCCs can be ordered.

PCC range

In order to open a door or the tailgate, a PCC must be no more than approx. 1.5 metres from the car’s door handle or tailgate. This means that the person who wishes to lock or unlock a door must be carrying the PCC. It is not possible to lock or unlock a door if the

02 Locks and alarm

Keyless drive*

PCC is on the other side of the car to the door.

The red circles in the illustration indicate the range covered by the system’s antennas.

If all PCCs are removed from the car and if all doors are closed then a warning message is shown in the information display and an audio reminder signal sounds at the same time. The message disappears when a PCC is brought back to the car.

The warning message and audio reminder signal disappear when the PCC is brought back to the car after;

a door has been opened and closed

the PCC is inserted into the ignition switch

the READ button has been pressed.

Handling the PCC safely

If a PCC with keyless drive function is left in the car, it is deactivated temporarily when the car is locked. This prevents unauthorised entry.

However, if someone breaks into the car, opens the door and finds the PCC, it can be reactivated. It is therefore important to handle all PCCs with equal care.

IMPORTANT

Never leave a PCC behind in the car.

Interference to PCC function

Electromagnetic fields and screening can interfere with the keyless drive system. For this reason, do not place the PCC near mobile phones or metallic objects.

If interference is experienced nonetheless, use the PCC and key blade in the normal way, see page 39.

Unlocking

Open the doors with the door handles or open the tailgate with the tailgate’s handle.

Unlocking with the key blade

If the keyless drive function in the PCC is not operating, then the driver’s door can be unlocked with the key blade. In this case central locking is not activated.

NOTE

Unlocking with the key blade triggers the alarm. For deactivation, see page 51.

Key memory – driver’s seat and door mirrors*

From the outside

The remote control key locks/unlocks all doors and the tailgate simultaneously. The lock buttons and door handles are disengaged during locking which also prevents opening from the inside, so-called deadlocks, see page 49 (only applies to certain markets).

The fuel filler flap can be opened when the car is unlocked. It cannot be opened if the car is locked and the alarm is armed.

NOTE

The car can be locked even if a door is

open1. It is also locked when the door is closed, and there is a risk that the remote control key will be locked in.

1.For cars with remote control key, insert the remote control key into the ignition switch. Gently push it forward until it is pulled in.

IMPORTANT

Do not insert the remote control key backwards!

Grip the end with the detachable key blade. See page 42.

2.Hold the clutch pedal fully depressed1. Depress the brake pedal in cars with automatic gearbox.

1If the car is moving then it is enough to press the START/STOP button to start the car.

3.Press the START/STOP button and release the button.

The starter motor works until the engine has started, but for no longer than 10 seconds (diesel up to 60 seconds). If the engine has not started after 10 seconds, try again by holding in the START/STOP button until the engine starts.

WARNING

Always remove the remote control key from the ignition switch when leaving the car, especially if there are children in the car.

WARNING

Never remove the remote control key from the ignition switch while driving or when the car is being towed. The steering lock could be activated which would mean that the car cannot be steered.

Never remove the remote control key with the keyless drive* function from the car while driving or during towing.

NOTE

The idling speed can be noticeably higher than normal for certain engine types during cold starting. This is so that the emissions system can reach normal operating temperature as quickly as possible, which minimises exhaust emissions and protects the

environment1.

1 If D or R position is engaged with automatic transmission, without the car being driven, then the engine speed is of course reduced, but at the same time it takes longer to reach operating temperature, so the environmental aspect is offset.

Keyless drive*

Follow steps 2–3 for starting petrol and diesel engines.

NOTE

One precondition for starting the car is that the car’s remote control keys with the keyless drive* function are located inside the passenger compartment or the cargo area.

Steering lock

The steering lock is deactivated when the remote control key is inserted into the ignition switch2 and activated when the remote control key is removed from the ignition switch.

03 Your driving environment

Starting the engine

Activate the steering lock when leaving the car to reduce the risk of car theft.

2On cars with Keyless drive* the steering lock is deactivated when the start button is pressed in for the first time. The steering lock is activated when the engine is switched off and the driver’s door is opened.

Diesel particle filter (DPF)

Diesel cars are equipped with a particle filter, which results in more efficient emission control. The particles in the exhaust gases are collected in the filter during normal driving. So-called "regeneration" is started in order to burn away the particles and empty the filter. This requires the engine to have reached normal operating temperature.

Regeneration of the filter takes place automatically at an interval of approximately 300– 900 km depending on driving conditions. Regeneration normally takes between 10 and 20 minutes. During this time fuel consumption may increase slightly.

Regeneration in cold weather

If the car is frequently driven short distances in cold weather then the engine does not reach normal operating temperature. This means that regeneration of the diesel particle filter does not take place and the filter is not emptied.

When the filter has become approximately 80% full of particles, a yellow warning triangle illuminates on the dashboard, and a message is shown, Soot filter full. See manual is shown on the dashboard display.

Start regeneration of the filter by driving the

 

car until the engine reaches normal operating

 

temperature, preferably on a main road or

 

motorway. The car should then be driven for

 

approximately 20 minutes more.

 

When regeneration is complete the warning

 

03

text is cleared automatically.

 

Use the parking heater* in cold weather so

 

that the engine reaches normal operating

 

temperature more quickly.

 

IMPORTANT

If the filter fills up with particles then it can be difficult to start the engine and the filter will be incapable of functioning. Then there is a risk that the filter will have to be replaced.

If the battery is flat then the car can be started with current from another battery.

The following points are recommended when using a donor battery in order to avoid the risk of an explosion:

1.Turn the car’s ignition to position 0, see page 65.

2.Ensure that the donor battery is 12 volt.

3.If the donor battery is in another car, switch off the donor car’s engine in the other car and ensure that the cars do not touch one another.

4.Connect the red jump lead to the posi-

tive terminal on the donor battery .

5.Open the clips on the front cover of the battery in your car and remove the cover, see page 198.

6.Connect the starter cable to the positive terminal on the battery in your car, located under a folding plastic cover.

7.Connect one clamp from the black jump

lead to the donor battery’s negative terminal .

8.Connect the other clamp to an earthing

point, (right-hand engine mounting at

the top, the outer screw head) . Check that the jump lead clamps are fixed securely so that there are no sparks during the starting procedure.

IMPORTANT

Connect the start cable carefully to avoid short circuits with other components in the engine compartment.

9.Start the engine of the "donor car". Let the engine run a few minutes at a speed slightly higher than idle (1500 rpm).

10.Start the engine of the car with the flat battery. Do not touch the crocodile clips during the start procedure. There is a risk of sparks forming.

11.Remove the jump leads, first the black and then the red. Make sure that none of the clamps on the black jump lead

comes into contact with the battery’s positive terminal or the clamp connected to the red jump lead.

WARNING

The battery can generate oxyhydrogen gas, which is highly explosive. One spark, which can be generated if you connect a jump lead incorrectly, is sufficient to make the battery explode. The battery contains sulphuric acid, which can cause serious burns. If the acid comes into contact with eyes, skin or clothing, flush with large quantities of water. If acid splashes into the eyes, seek medical attention immediately.

The information display shows the position of the gear selector using the following indications: P, R, N, D, S, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6. See page 60.

Gear positions

Parking position (P)

Select P when starting the engine or when the car is parked. The brake pedal must be depressed to disengage the gear selector from the P position.

The gearbox is mechanically blocked when the P position is engaged. Activate the elec-

tric parking brake by pressing the button, see page 98.

IMPORTANT

The car must be stationary when position P is selected.

Reverse (R)

The car must be stationary when position R is selected.

Neutral position (N)

No gear is engaged and the engine can be started. Apply the parking brake if the car is stationary with the gear selector in position N.

Drive (D)

D is the normal driving position. Shifting up and down takes place automatically based on the level of acceleration and speed. The car must be stationary when the gear selector is moved to position D from position R.

Geartronic* – Sport mode (S)1

The Sport programme provides sportier characteristics and allows higher engine speed for the gears. At the same time it responds more quickly to acceleration. During active driving, the use of a lower gear is prioritised, leading to a delayed upshift.

Sport mode is obtained by moving the lever from D position to the right-hand end position at M. The information display shifts the indication from D to S.

Sport mode can be selected at any time while driving.

1 Only on the 3.0 model.

92

03 Your driving environment

Geartronic* – manual gear positions (M)

The driver can also change gear manually using the Geartronic automatic gearbox. The car engine-brakes when the accelerator pedal is released.

Manual gearshift mode is obtained by moving the lever from position D to the right-hand end position at M. The information display shifts the indication from D to one of the figures 1-6, depending which gear is engaged just then, see page 60.

Move the lever forwards towards + (plus) to change up a gear and release the lever, which returns to its rest position at M.

Pull the lever back towards (minus) to change down a gear and release the lever.

The manual gearshift mode M can be selected at any time while driving.

To return to automatic driving mode; move the lever to the left-hand end position at D.

Geartronic automatically shifts down if the driver allows the speed to decrease lower than a level suitable for the selected gear, in order to avoid jerking and stalling.

NOTE

If the gearbox has a Sport programme then the gearbox will only become manual after the lever has been moved forwards or backwards in its M position. The information display then shifts the indication from S to show which of the gears 1 6 is engaged.

Kick-down

When the accelerator pedal is pressed all the way to the floor (beyond the position normally regarded as full acceleration) a lower gear is immediately engaged. This is known as kickdown.

If the accelerator is released from the kickdown position, the gearbox automatically changes up.

Kick-down is used when maximum acceleration is needed, such as for overtaking.

Safety function

To prevent overrevving the engine, the gearbox control program has a protective downshift inhibitor which prevents the kick-down function.

Geartronic does not permit downshifting/ kick-down which would result in an engine speed high enough to damage the engine. Nothing happens if the driver still tries to shift down in this way at high engine speed – the original gear remains engaged.

When kick-down is activated the car can change one or more gears at a time depending on engine speed. The car changes up when the engine reaches its maximum speed in order to prevent damage to the engine.

03 Your driving environment

All Wheel Drive – AWD (All Wheel Drive)*

All Wheel Drive is always engaged

All Wheel Drive means that the car is driving on all four wheels at the same time.

The power is automatically distributed between the front and rear wheels. An elec-

tronically controlled clutch system distributes 03 the power to the wheels that have the best

grip on the current road surface. This provides the best traction and prevents wheel spin. Under normal driving conditions, the majority of power is transmitted to the front wheels.

All Wheel Drive improves driving safety in rain, snow and icy conditions.

95

03 Your driving environment

Foot brake

General

The car is equipped with two brake circuits. If one brake circuit is damaged then this will mean that the brakes engage at a deeper level and harder pressure on the pedal is

needed to produce the normal braking effect.

03

The driver’s brake pedal pressure is reinforced by a brake servo.

WARNING

The brake servo only works when the engine is running.

If the brake is used when the engine is switched off then the pedal will feel stiff and more force must be used to brake the car.

In very hilly terrain or when driving with a heavy load the brakes can be relieved by using engine braking. Engine braking is most efficiently used if the same gear is used downhill as up.

For more general information on heavy loads on the car, see page 227.

Anti-lock braking system

The car is equipped with ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) that prevents the wheels from locking during braking. This means the ability to steer is maintained and it is easier to swerve to avoid a hazard for example. Vibra-

tion may be felt in the brake pedal when this is engaged and this is normal.

After the engine has been started and the car has reached 20 km/h there is a short automatic test of the ABS system. The test may be felt as pulses in the brake pedal.

Cleaning the brake discs

Coatings of dirt and water on the brake discs may result in delayed brake function. This delay is minimised by cleaning the brake linings.

Manual cleaning is advisable with wet road surfaces, prior to long-stay parking and after the car has been washed. Carry this out by braking gently during a short period while en route.

Emergency Brake Assistance

Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA) helps to increase brake force and so reduce braking distance. The EBA system detects the driver’s braking style and increases brake force as necessary. The brake force can be reinforced up to the level when the ABS system is engaged. The EBA function is interrupted when the pressure on the brake pedal is reduced.

NOTE

When EBA is activated the brake pedal lowers slightly more than usual, depress (hold) the brake pedal as long as necessary. If the brake pedal is released then all braking ceases.

Symbols in the combined instrument panel

Symbol Specification

Constant glow – Check the brake fluid level. If the level is low, fill with brake fluid and check for the cause of the brake fluid loss.

Constant glow for two seconds when the engine is started – There was a fault in the brake system’s ABS function when the engine was last running.

WARNING

If and illuminate at the same time then a fault may have arisen in the brake system.

If the level in the brake fluid reservoir is normal at this stage, drive carefully to the nearest authorised Volvo workshop and have the brake system checked.

If the brake fluid is under the MIN level in the brake fluid reservoir, do not drive further before topping up the brake fluid.

The reason for the loss of brake fluid must be investigated.

General1

HDC can be compared to an automatic engine brake. When you release the accelerator on downhill gradients the car is normally braked by means of the engine striving for low engine idling speeds, so-called engine braking. But the steeper the road and the more load there is in the car, the faster the car rolls despite engine braking. In order to then reduce speed the driver has to assist using the footbrake.

The function makes it possible to increase/ reduce speed on steep downhill gradients, with a foot only on the accelerator pedal, without using the footbrake. The brake system brakes itself and automatically provides a low and even speed, so allowing the driver to fully focus on steering.

HDC is particularly helpful on steep gradients with an uneven road surface and slippery sections. E.g. when launching a boat on a trailer from a ramp.

WARNING

HDC does not work in all situations, but is instead only intended to be supplementary assistance.

The driver always has ultimate responsibility that the car is driven safely.

1HDC is only available on the XC70 and is standard.

03 Your driving environment

Hill Descent Control (HDC)

Function

G017426

HDC is engaged or disengaged using a switch on the centre console. A lamp in the button illuminates when the function is engaged. When HDC is operating the symbol illuminates and the display shows Hill Descent Control ON.

The function only operates in first gear position and in reverse gear. For an automatic gearbox, gear position 1 must be selected, which is shown with the figure 1 in the trip computer display, see page 93.

NOTE

HDC cannot be activated in an automatic gearbox with the gear selector in position D.

Operation

HDC allows the car to roll at a maximum of 10 km/h forwards with engine braking and 7 km/h backwards. However, any speed within the gear’s speed register can be selected using the accelerator pedal. When

the accelerator pedal is released, the car is 03 braked quickly to 10 or 7 km/h respectively, irrespective of the hill’s gradient and without

the need for the footbrake.

The brake lights come on automatically when the function is operating. The driver can brake or stop the car at any time by using the footbrake.

HDC is deactivated:

with the on/off button on the centre console

if a gear higher than 1 is selected on a manual gearbox

if a gear higher than 1 is selected on an automatic gearbox, or if the gear selector is moved to position D.

The function can be disengaged at any time. If it takes place on a steep downhill gradient then the braking effect will not release directly, but slowly instead.

NOTE

When HDC is activated, engine response during acceleration seems slower than normal.

03 Your driving environment

Parking brake

Parking brake, electric*

How to apply the parking brake

An electric parking brake has the same applications as a manual parking brake, e.g. when starting uphill.

03

Function

A faint electric motor noise can be heard

 

 

when the parking brake is being applied. The

 

noise can also be heard during the automatic

 

function checking of the parking brake.

If the car is stationary when the parking brake is applied then it only acts on the rear wheels. If it is applied when the car is moving then the normal foot brake is used, i.e. the brake acts on all four wheels. Brake function changes over to the rear wheels when the car is almost stationary.

Low battery voltage

If the battery voltage is too low then the parking brake can neither be released nor applied. Connect a donor battery if the battery voltage is too low, see page 90.

G021354

Parking brake control

1.Press the foot brake pedal down firmly.

2.Press the control.

3.Release the foot brake pedal and make sure that the car is at a standstill position.

4.When parking the vehicle always put the gear selector in position 1 (for manual transmission) or P (for automatic transmission).

The symbol in the combined instrument panel flashes until the parking brake is fully applied. When the symbol illuminates the parking brake is applied.

In an emergency the parking brake can be applied when the vehicle is moving by holding in the control. When the control is

released or the accelerator pedal is depressed the braking is interrupted.

NOTE

In the event of emergency braking at speeds above 10 km/h a signal sounds during the braking procedure.

Parking on a hill

If the car is parked facing uphill; turn the wheels away from the kerb.

If the car is parked facing downhill, turn the wheels towards the kerb.

Releasing automatically

1.Put the seatbelt on.

2.Start the engine.

3.Move the gear selector to position D or R and depress the accelerator.

NOTE

For safety reasons, the parking brake is only released automatically if the engine is running and the driver is wearing a seatbelt. The parking brake is released immediately on cars with automatic gearbox when the accelerator pedal is depressed and the gear selector is in position D or R.

Heavy load uphill

A heavy load, such as a trailer, can cause the car to roll backward when the parking brake is released automatically on a steep incline.

Avoid this by holding in the control while driving off. Release the control when the engine achieves traction.
