Volvo BLIS System Overview

Volvo Blind Spot System

The blind spot. It's one of those pesky problems that will pop up for as long as humans drive cars. Fortunately for you, all new Volvo Cars models come standard with the Volvo Blind Spot Information System. It takes one of the problems that plagues drivers most and turns checking your blindspot into an easier task that can be quickly accomplished without taking too much focus off of the road in front of you. Whether you're looking to merge onto the freeway, change lanes, or just avoid someone who is doing either of those tasks much too recklessly, you'll enjoy having the Volvo BLIS sensor on deck at all times.

Breaking Down the Blind Spot Information System

The Volvo BLIS system is a function available in new Volvo Cars that provides support for the driver when driving conditions are more crowded than preferable. Dense roads with lanes filled to their gills with cars can feel like you're stewing in a big pot of frantic worry. As cars speed past and you near your exit or try to get into the thick of the highway, each minor movement feels like it matters way too much.

The blind spot information system inside new Volvo Cars models will help you take a breath, pause, and move confidently when the time is right. It is designed to react in the safest manner when the vehicle you're driving is overtaken by other vehicles on the road around you or if your vehicle is quickly caught up to before you make your next move. The door panel where the danger is lurking will light up with a constant glow. If the situation becomes more dangerous, the Volvo Blind Spot Information System will flash the light. You'll be able to immediately identify the signal and determine if the coast is clear for a lane change.

The Volvo Blind Spot Information System can be activated or deactivated by simply pressing the BLIS button on the center console or in the car's MYCAR menu system. When turning the system on, the door panel indicator lamps will flash once to let you know they're ready to roll. Your instrument panel will also confirm that you've turned the system on or off through a text message. Once you're authenticated, your system will complete the process you told it to do.
