Volvo SENSUS - ergonomic high-tech

SENSUS is Volvos new all-encompassing infotainment and information system. A bit like a smart-phone, SENSUS is designed to be adaptable, it can be personalized and it will grow as technology develops. It is just another way that your Volvo is truly Designed Around You.

In SENSUS, all information is presented on a five-inch or seven-inch colour screen in the upper part of the centre stack. The screen is positioned high up to make it easy for the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road.

By pressing the "My Car" button in the centre stack the driver gains access to a wide range of settings for systems such as City Safety, Collision Warning, Pedestrian Detection, Driver Alert System, Active Cruise Control, lighting, door mirrors, climate unit, central locking and the audio system.

If you choose a multimedia audio system, Volvo Sensus is accompanied by a larger seven-inch screen that also displays information and images from the navigation system, phone, reversing camera, panorama camera, DVD player and so on.

The Bluetooth connection has been upgraded to allow not only hands-free phone conversations but also music streaming from your preferred Bluetooth enabled portable music player. Volvo is actually the only brand to offer Bluetooth music streaming throughout its entire vehicle range.

Integrated navigation with voice commands is available as an option, as well as an entertainment system for rear-seat passengers. This package includes among other things a DVD player, two eight-inch screens integrated into the front seat headrests, wireless headphones and remote control.

Full control without distraction

All the functions can be controlled via buttons built into the steering wheel or via touch buttons located just below the colour screen.

"Volvo Sensus does not distract the driver from driving. The idea is that the technology should be so intuitive that the user can maneuver the menus without having to first read through the instruction manual. We are one of the few manufacturers to offer the driver access to all the system's functions via buttons in the steering wheel," says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President, Product Strategy & Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.

SENSUS now in available in SA

Volvo SENSUS is already available in SA on the S60, V60, XC60, S80 and XC70 models.
