Volvo offers a 4-year, 50,000-mile basic/powertrain warranty on its lineup.

Active safety features with Volvo's IntelliSafe can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. The following active safety system is included even on lower trims/versions of the 2020 Volvo XC60: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB). There are optional safety features on the 2020 Volvo XC60 which may add to the cost but should be strongly considered --- Lane Departure Warning System and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS).
Some safety technologies get a lot of press, but others may also improve safety. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading. Standard side mirror turn signals alert others of your intention to turn or switch lanes allowing them to react accordingly, which can prevent accidents caused by not seeing a vehicle in the blind spot.
