MS Volvo Dealer Introduces all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sedan in-stock now

October 14, 2010

Jackson MS Volvo dealer Paul Moak Volvo announces the all-new 2011 Volvo S60 sedan featuring Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake.  The 2011 Volvo S60 sedan, released to the U.S. from Sweden in September, is the newest addition to the Volvo model lineup.  One of the most unique features of the S60 is Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake, a world’s first in preventative safety engineering.  Combining radar and camera technologies, the S60 detects objects in the path of the car and determines whether or not the object is a pedestrian.  If detected as a pedestrian, the S60 alerts the driver with audible and visual warnings.  If the driver fails to stop the vehicle, the system will apply braking force to avoid striking the pedestrian, or at lease minimize the impact speed and severity of any injuries.  The S60 will come to a complete stop at speeds of 22 mph or less.  The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety reports that pedestrian motor vehicle crashes account 12% of crash deaths.  Each year, approximately 70,000 pedestrians are injured in motor vehicle crashes and 4,700 pedestrians are killed in the US.  Fifty percent of those fatal accidents occurred at speeds of less than 16 mph. 

Watch the video below see to a demonstration.

The 2011 S60 is also equipped with the revolutionary City Safety feature first pioneered by Volvo on the 2010 XC60 Crossover which debuted in the fall of 2009.  The S60 joins the XC60 as a “car that stops itself” in order to prevent collisions in stop-and-go city traffic.  City Safety comes standard on all XC60 crossovers and S60 sedans, and helps avoid or reduce the consequences of a collision at low speed by automatically braking the car and at the same time restricting engine power.  This truly innovative safety system is designed to prevent or mitigate collisions occurring at speeds of 19 mph or less.  Engineers estimate that City Safety can prevent up to 50% of all rear end collisions.  70% of all collisions occur at speeds of less than 10 mph or less, and 50% of these occur in city traffic situations.

Volvo has been synonymous with safety since the brand arrived in the U.S. in the mid-1950s. In fact, this year marks the 51st anniversary of the three point seat belt, another one of Volvo’s “firsts” credited as saving millions of lives as the single most effective passive safety feature in any vehicle.  To this day, Volvo continues its heritage of safety with new innovations such as Pedestrian Detection and City Safety.

Paul Moak introduced Volvo to Mississippi 32 years ago in 1977, and has been the state’s exclusive Volvo retailer ever since.  The dealership offers a wide range of vehicles featuring many of the groundbreaking technologies that demonstrate Volvo’s continued safety leadership throughout the world-wide automotive marketplace.  Mississippi shoppers can learn more about the Volvo brand and safety technologies online at www.paulmoakvolvo.com or stop by the Jackson, MS Volvo dealership for a test drive.  Paul Moak Volvo is very excited to release the new 2011 Volvo S60 sedan to the public in the fall of 2010.  For more information on this brand new sedan, contact Paul Moak Volvo online or by phoning 866-980-9557.

Until now, the XC70 has always been available only with all-wheel drive, but the new model should appeal to customers that prefer the improved view of the road ahead afforded by the command seating position without the need to leave the road.

Go to our website,http://www.paulmoakvolvo.com/2011volvoxc70.htm, to learn more about the Bonus Savings available to Jackson MS Subaru and Jackson MS Volkswagen owners.

One of the primary reasons for selecting a crossover is the cargo space offered by the extended roof body style and the XC70 shines in this respect. The XC70 combines the sleek nose with the prominent Volvo Iron logo with the strong shoulders of other modern Volvos and a roofline that puts functionality first. With five passengers onboard, there is a full 33.3 cubic feet of hauling space available, which more than doubles to 72.1 cubic feet with the seats folded. Aluminum rails with movable tiedowns allow objects in the cargo area to be secured.

All XC70s now come standard with Sirius Satellite Radio compatible audio systems. The optional Multimedia Package brings the Volvo Premium Sound system with a full 650 watts pumping through 12 upgraded speakers and Dolby Pro-Logic II Surround Sound for concert hall sound on the road. The Multimedia Package also includes a Satellite Navigation System featuring Real Time Traffic data so you can avoid backups. For those times when you actually need to back up, this package also includes a rear park assist camera. Also aiding rear visibility are the power folding headrests for the rear seat, which are part the of the Convenience Package. You’ll enjoy the audio while sitting in Volvo’s ergonomically designed seats with available heating and Electronic Climate Control makes sure everyone stays comfortable.

Safety is synonymous with Volvo so the XC70 Technology Package includes a radar sensor that works with several systems to help avoid or minimize accidents. The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) monitors the distance to the vehicle ahead and automatically applies the brakes in order to maintain a safe following distance. Even when not using ACC, Distance Alert (DA) gives the driver a warning when the XC70 gets too close to the car ahead and the Collision Warning with Auto Brake (CWAB) applies full braking power to either avert an impact or reduce the energy of a collision if the driver doesn’t respond. The Driver Alert Control (DAC) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) use cameras to monitor the XC70s position between the lane markers and warn the driver if the vehicle is drifting or moving erratically.

The combination of space and technology allows the XC70 driver to traverse urban traffic, silken freeways or backwoods trails in style, comfort and safety with whatever gear they might need at their destination. The front-wheeldrive 2011 Volvo XC70 starts at $32,850. Contact us today to set up an appointment.
