Car and Driver: Volvo S90 To Be First Car Fitted with Standard Semi-Autonomous Tech

Recommended Posts

-Volvo’s handsome S90 sedan will enter into a packed and high-tech market when it goes on sale in the U.S. toward the end of 2016. But it’ll pack one feature nobody else offers in the U.S. market: self-driving technology as a standard feature.


The S90 will utilize the second generation of Pilot Assist, Volvo’s semi-autonomous driving tech that was first featured in the XC90 SUV. In the SUV, the feature tracks a vehicle driving in front of you to know when to accelerate, brake, and steer, at speeds up to 30 mph and when lane markings are clearly visible to the system’s cameras. The second-gen Pilot Assist, standard in the S90 sedan, will be able to accomplish those same tasks without needing to follow a car in front, according to Volvo. It also will perform these functions at speeds up to 80 mph.


Volvo says the S90 will be the first car sold in the U.S. with semi-autonomous driving as a standard feature. It’s part of Volvo’s Vision 2020, a self-imposed goal by the automaker to eliminate deaths and serious injuries in its new cars by that year. The S90 will make its debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show next week.
