Red Key From Volvo Cars, For What?
Volvo Cars has launched a new key designed to give owners peace of mind when entrusting their pride and joy to other users.
Available on the new Volvo S90 saloon, V90 estate and XC90 SUV, the Red Key activates functions on the vehicle to help ensure the car is driven responsibly when in the hands of valet parking staff, repair workshops or younger drivers.
When the car is driven with the Red Key, its top speed is reduced to 75mph, the Adaptive Cruise Control function is programmed to maintain the maximum distance to the car in front, and the maximum volume from the audio system is reduced. Meanwhile, use of the Red Key sees the permanent activation of a range of safety features, including BLIS (Blind Spot Information System), Lane Keeping Aid, Forward Collision Warning, Driver Alert Control, Distance Alert and Traffic Sign Recognition.
The Red Key is available now to both new buyers and existing owners of Volvo’s 90 series cars, and can be purchased through Volvo dealerships at a price of £110.
