Q. Is the XC60 as safe as the rest of Volvo's lineup? A: Absolutely. Protecting people is at the heart of every Volvo car, and the features that make the XC60 a safe place for you and your passengers are the result of decades of leadership in safety. Ultra high-strength boron steel - one of the strongest types of steel available - forms a rigid safety cell around the car, while crumple zones front and rear dissipate energy in the event of a collision.
Q. Does the XC60 come with Volvo On Call? A: Yes. Volvo On Call is the app that connects your phone, tablet or wearable device with your Volvo XC60. This makes your car a more useful part of your world, as well as providing remote access and a range of useful functions. Among other things, it allows you to remotely start, heat, or cool your XC60, lock or unlock it remotely, and find it in a parking lot. With Volvo's new partnership with Amazon, you can even have packages safely and securely delivered directly to your XC60.
