Volvo Dynamic Steering
Active steering system with torque overlay. Delivers more steering force at low speeds, reduces steering kicks and keeps the steering wheel straight forward when braking on split friction. The steering wheel returns automatically to neutral position both when driving forward and when reversing.
Volvo Dynamic Steering is now available for all axle configurations, including trucks with dual front axles.Additional active steering features such as personal settings and over steer guidance to make the drive even more enjoyable and safe.

EBS Status Control
EBS status monitoring via the TEA2+ vehicle electronic system and Volvo Tech Tool.
Hill Start Aid
The brakes are only released once there is sufficient engine torque to propel the vehicle forward.
Lining Wear Analysis
Brake lining warning – calculates the remaining mileage available with the current brake linings. (Only for disc brakes.)

The parking brake is released when the driver pushes the accelerator pedal and a gear is selected (only I-Shift gearbox).

Additional options

In addition to the program packages there are the following options:
Stretch Brake
Enables the driver to request pulse braking of the trailer. The brake is then automatically activated and the risk of jack-knifing is minimised.
ESC (Electronic Stability Control)
The brake stability system applies the brakes individually on each wheel, thereby providing stability for the entire vehicle combination and counteracting jack-knifing, rollover and trailer swing. ESC fulfils the legislation of Electronic Vehicle Stability Control, and is available for 2- and 3-axle vehicles.
