Vancouver, British Columbia – Volvo will host a public preview of the new XC60 in Vancouver and give attendees the chance to experience its City Safety braking system.

The tour, named “From Sweden with Löv,” will let people experience the low-speed autonomous braking system in a closed environment. The system was developed to reduce low-speed collisions where the driver is distracted and doesn’t react to an imminent collision in heavy stop-and-go traffic, in parking lots, or when entering an intersection from a stop. It will be standard equipment on the XC60, which launches in April 2009.

The tour will be held Monday, March 30 and Tuesday, March 31 at the Rocky Mountaineer Station, 1755 Cottrell Street, between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. To sign up online, visit Volvo.
