    Child Safety Tips in and Around Your New Volvo

    Last updated 18 days ago

    Most consumers prioritize safety ratings when shopping for new automobiles, but drivers with young children tend to give this factor as much or more weight than any other. With a long-standing reputation for manufacturing some of the safest cars on the road, Volvo is a natural choice for parents of young children. To keep your children’s experience around your new Volvo as risk-free as possible, use your Volvo’s safety features and take the additional precautions recommended below.

    Never Leave Children in Your Volvo
    Leaving your child in the car for a few minutes while you run into a store or drop something off at a friend’s may seem easy and convenient, but it is never the right thing to do. The risks that your child could get into trouble in the car or find his or her way out are simply not worth it. In places as warm and sunny as Sarasota, heatstroke in particular is a major concern.

    Lock Rear Power Windows
    New Volvos and most other modern cars come equipped with child safety locks on windows and doors. These are designed to keep children from opening doors while a car is in motion and prevent them from getting any parts of their bodies jammed between the window and window frame.

    Highlight Importance of Care Around Vehicle
    Educating your child on the dangers of playing with controls inside the vehicle is important. When informing your child of potential automotive dangers, however, do not overlook safety around the vehicle. Teach your child to never move toward your Volvo or any other vehicle while it is backing up or in motion. Emphasize that the trunk is a place for groceries and luggage, not people. This can help you keep your child out of harm’s way and give you peace of mind.

    At Volvo of Sarasota, we take automotive safety very seriously. In addition to selling only the safest vehicles on the market, we offer a range of automotive services that can keep your car in great shape. To learn about the child safety features you can find in the Volvos on our lot, visit our dealership or call (941) 924-1211.

    Safety: The Founding Principle of Volvo Cars

    For decades, Volvo has set benchmarks for automotive safety against which other auto manufacturers have been held. Today, we proudly equip our Volvos with technology designed to protect pedestrians and cyclists in addition to drivers and passengers.

    In both city and highway traffic, IntelliSafe works to alert you of and protect you and others from an array of road dangers. Adaptive Cruise Control allows you to maximize fuel efficiency and minimize effort by ensuring that a safe distance is kept between you and the car in front. An innovative camera system gives you a 360-degree view of any and all obstacles around the volvo. Various sensors detect pedestrians and cyclists with speed and precision, engaging your brakes for you if your reflexes are not quick enough and keeping everyone on the road safe.

    Inspired by the vision that no one will be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo by 2020, Volvo continues to chase new frontiers in automotive safety. If you want to drive the safest car in the class you are looking for, look at the new and certified pre-owned options for sale at Volvo of Sarasota.
