The new XC60 will also feature a new infotainment system, digital instrument cluster and an assortment of comfort and safety features. The new safety feature includes automatic steering assistance or support when required, to help avoid potential collisions.
Duggan said he understands many New Zealanders find the idea of autonomous cars daunting, but that attitude will change.
The main advantage of this platform is that it guarantees that all new models from Gothenburg factory are going to come with fuel-efficient engines, a ton of self-driving features, and other electronic driving aids.
Duggan says the existing Blind Spot Information System, which alerts drivers to the presence of vehicles in their blind spot, will also be updated to include steering assist functionality that helps to avoid potential collisions with vehicles in a blind spot by steering the car back into its own lane and away from danger.
