Volvo S90 IIHS Small Overlap Test

All Volvo models have been recognized by IIHS for safety. An August 2016 report from IIHS showed that cars outfitted with Volvo City Safety, which included vehicle detection, reduced rear end crashes by 43% and those with injuries by 45%.  In 2017, the Volvo S90 and XC90 will include large animal detection with automatic emergency braking, aimed at further preventing or mitigating accidents on the road.

 

“Volvo’s commitment to safety is crystalized in our Vision 2020, which states that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020.” Said Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO of Volvo Car USA, “Our new cars prove that luxury, style and performance can perfectly compliment world-leading safety.”
