OUR IDEA OF LUXURY
It’s not enough to simply protect, we want to prevent you from ever being in a collision at all.
City Safety scans the road ahead for other vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians—no matter what the conditions.
SAFETY COMES STANDARD
We want you to enjoy driving your all-new XC90, safe in the knowledge that our latest IntelliSafe technologies are constantly working to prevent collisions and keep you safe.
Safety in every seat
Every XC90 is equipped with the most state-of-the-art safety features in the automotive world.
Maximum strength steel
As proactive as our practical safety technology is, the first step toward creating an extremely safe car is making the passenger compartment as strong as possible. The XC90 uses boron steel, the strongest type of steel in the world.
Pre-activated safety belts
With our advanced electrical reversible belt retractor (ERR), we tighten the safety belts before a likely collision. Activation of ERR is based on the car’s intelligent detection system.
The front seats incorporate our latest whiplash injury protection. Their unique energy-absorbing functionality helps reduce spinal injuries by decreasing the vertical acceleration on the body.
It’s the car’s turn to drive
We are always looking to make driving less stressful and more enjoyable. This mission is evident in two of our latest developments in driver safety.
The new optional Pilot Assist function actively supports you by automatically adjusting the steering to keep the car within the lane, as well as keeps the set speed and distance to the vehicle in front of you.
Park Assist Pilot
The all-new XC90 makes parking easy. After it finds you a spot—let go of the steering wheel, accelerate, brake, change gears and watch the magic happen.
WE’VE TAKEN SAFETY TO A NEW LEVEL. THE TOP.
THE ALL-NEW XC90 HAS BEEN AWARDED THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE SAFETY RATING FROM IIHS
In all Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, the Volvo XC90 received a good rating, its top honor. It excelled in both preventive and protective safety performance, highlighting the exceptional nature of what we do at Volvo. A combination of an ultra-high-strength steel safety cage, advanced restraints and an advanced auto-braking system, City Safety, deliver unparalleled performance. It’s no wonder the XC90 is one of the safest cars on the road to date. In fact, “Every Volvo currently rated by IIHS has earned a Top Safety Pick+, we are the only automaker that can claim that proud distinction.” - Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO of Volvo Cars North America.
