Enter the safe-guarded zone
Volvo Armoured Cars
Protecting people and what’s most important to them has been at the heart of Volvo Cars’ operations since 1927. With our armoured luxury SUVs, we make the renowned Volvo comfort and the distinct yet discreet Scandinavian style available for people in need of heightened protection.
The Volvo XC90 Armoured (Heavy)
The awarded SUV Volvo XC90 is the essence of discreet, modern Scandinavian design – also in its heavy-armoured version. It provides unrivalled comfort and safety, while offering the highest level of personal protection (VPAM VR8 ballistic and explosive certification). This adds high-level security to the vehicle’s stylish character without compromising its fundamental properties. The Volvo XC90 Armoured is the result of a close collaboration with one of the world’s leading armoured vehicle suppliers, TRASCO Bremen GmbH.
The comfort of protection
During the ride, the passengers can enjoy the reassured feeling of high-level protection without compromising on comfort. They can relax in an elegantly crafted cabin, and it’s easy to get in and out of the vehicle with maintained grace and style. And in the most precarious of situations, the state-of-the-art armouring and supportive safe-guarding features help provide 360° ballistic resistance and comprehensive explosive resistance (VR8 requirements).
The distinct, clean Scandinavian design make the Volvo XC90 Armoured a vehicle that doesn’t attract unnecessary attention. All armouring solutions, such as the heavily reinforced window glass, are elegantly integrated and almost invisible from the outside.
Dynamic SUV performance
The SUV design with raised seating position provides the driver with an excellent overview of what’s going on around the vehicle. If needed, all-wheel drive and a heavy-duty adapted chassis help the driver to take tactical actions with maintained stability and control. Large, heavy-duty wheels and high ground clearance further enhance the ability to escape threatening situations. The Volvo XC90 Armoured features full EU road certification.
The next level of Volvo safety
The Volvo XC90 and XC60 Armoured (Light)
The awarded luxury Volvo SUVs XC90 and XC60 don’t compromise on style and safety. And with light armouring, they also provide certified ballistic protection according to the stringent American NIJ-IIIA standards. This makes these SUVs the perfect choice for private customers who need extra protection, as well as for security services and police forces in their tactical operations. You can enjoy exceptional protection with maintained comfort, safety and driving characteristics – in a genuine Scandinavian SUV, built and armoured according to Volvo Cars’ highest standards.
Complete yet discreet protection
The car is armoured to help provide efficient 360° ballistic protection from different angles and distances (standard NIJ-IIIA in combination with VPAM BRV 2009). The complete body armouring, including the reinforced laminated glass in all windows, is discreetly integrated in the car’s design to help protect without being seen. It’s a stylish SUV that doesn’t attract unwanted attention.
Maintained driving characteristics
Reinforced chassis and brakes mean you can enjoy equally dynamic driving characteristics as in an ordinary XC90 or XC60. The powerful 310 hp engine and all-wheel drive add to performance and stability on all roads in all conditions – as driver, you are in full control.
A secure choice
Choosing an armoured Volvo SUV means you’re on the safe side. The complete car is certified according to American NIJ-IIIA standards in combination with VPAM BRV 2009 for light armoured vehicles. Volvo Cars secures the functionality on all parts and safety systems.
