We know child safety

Improving child safety in our cars has long been a guiding principle at Volvo. We played a key role in the development of rearward-facing child seats and we introduced the world’s first booster cushion in 1978. Today we continue to innovate, using our knowledge and expertise to build the safest cars. It forms a vital part of our vision that, by 2020, no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car. We call this Vision 2020.

Protecting what’s important – your children

You want to give your children the best possible protection in your car, and so do we. Discover how our decades of experience, particularly in the use of rear-facing child seats, help you keep the people you care about safe.
