  • As of March 2021, Volvo Cars has earned more single year TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS awards than any other company since the honors started in 2013

MAHWAH, N.J. (March 31, 2021) As of March 2021, Volvo Cars has earned more single year TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS (TSP+) awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) than any other automaker since the TSP+ honors began in 2013.

 

IIHS awards TSP+ awards to vehicles that provide the highest level of safety. Volvo Cars received nine TSP+ awards in February and added five additional models in this latest round of testing, totaling 14 awards for 2021.

 

The company's focus on standard safety systems, including forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, combined with advanced pedestrian and cyclist collision prevention, sets Volvo Cars apart from others. Volvo Cars has made these systems standard on all vehicles for several years, while many competitors continue to offer some of these features as options.

 

“Volvo has been setting safety records for years,” said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO of Volvo Car USA. “We’re proud to add this record to our history.”

 

The following vehicles produced after September 2020 have been awarded the TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS award from IIHS as of March 31, 2021:

 

  • Volvo S90
  • Volvo S90 Recharge
  • Volvo V90

  • Volvo V60
  • Volvo V60 Recharge
  • Volvo XC40
  • Volvo XC60
  • Volvo XC60 Recharge
