Car Tech: Volvo XC60, safer than houses

Watch our video review of the Volvo XC60, the car with technology that brings the vehicle to a standstill before an accident happens

Join Rory Reid as he test drives the new Volvo XC60 in the highlands of Scotland. It's been fitted with some of the most cutting-edge safety tech available today, most notably the City Safety feature. This automatically brings the car to a halt if the vehicle in front of you stops suddenly (providing you're travelling under 19mph, that is). There's also a lane-departure system, which makes a warning noise if you accidentally veer out of your lane and lights that alert you when another vehicle is passing in your blind spot. Watch the video to find out how all these marvels work.
