Volvo's IntelliSafe active safety features can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. All trims and versions of the 2022 Volvo XC60 Recharge include the following active safety systems: Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning System, and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS).

Some safety features still may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances. Side mirror turn signals are standard on the Volvo XC60 Recharge. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you. Standard Automatic High Beams automatically switches high beam headlights off when oncoming traffic is approaching and turns them back on when there aren't any vehicles ahead. Optional Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading.

And it is safer than many comparable models.
