Precious passengers

Safety has always been our number one priority at Volvo Cars. Safety for the driver, the passengers, other motorists and, of course, pedestrians. We have always been at the forefront of innovation in the field of safety — and Child Safety is no exception.

Designed for real life

Our unique approach to child safety includes tests based on real-life traffic situations. This enables us to carefully understand how each child seat reacts in a real-life car environment and tailor our designs accordingly. As a result of our research we can strongly recommend that children up to the age of four years are seated facing backwards.

Child safety in the front seat

Our recommendation for the use of the front passenger airbag for children has been updated thanks to advances in airbag technology in recent years. The short film and downloadable factsheet provide a good overview of our safety recommendations for children travelling in the front passenger seat and how these apply to current and older Volvo models.

Child seats

Our child seats combine everything we know about safety with beautiful Scandinavian design. Made with breathable 80 per cent natural wool fabrics, they are the most comfortable child seats ever. Protect what is important to you with Volvo Cars child seats.
