Volvo Safety Center

Volvo Safety Centre


The new, $81 million Volvo Safety Center 2000 is unique in the automotive industry. It is equipped with technologies and test equipment intended to keep Volvo's safety research at the forefront of the industry. Its innovative, pivoting crash track allows safety engineers in the laboratory to create and analyze all conceivable accident scenarios: front impacts, rear impacts, and every angle in between, plus rollovers. And for the first time, side impacts can be studied with both test cars in motion. Also studied will be impacts between dissimilar vehicles; cars and SUVs, for example. The Volvo Safety Center will yield invaluable information -- information that we look forward to sharing -- that will lead to safer vehicles for the real world.

Descriptions and facts in this press material relate to Volvo Cars' international car range. Described features might be optional. Vehicle specifications may vary from one country to another and may be altered without prior notification.
