Integrated in the front seats, Volvo's unique Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS) cradles the spine and neck in a controlled manner. The system is activated by a collision of sufficient force from behind. Independent research has shown that WHIPS is one of the most effective in the world. Since its introduction in 1998, it has helped reduce long-term consequences by more than 50%.
