The XC90's body structure is designed to distribute collision energy around the passenger cabin and the interior features a full complement of airbags to help protect the occupants.

The XC90 also features a Roll Over Protection System, that includes Roll Stability Control that applies individual brakes to help reduce the likelihood of a roll over and a reinforced roof structure.
