*Peace of mind. Confidence. Relaxed. There's a very good reason why Sweden is a world leader in automotive safety. The best way to deal with an accident is to prevent it from ever happening.
Volvo's pioneering safety technologies packed in the new XC90, from City Safety to Lane Departure Warning, support you in your daily driving, help you avoid or mitigate collisions and protect you in the event of an accident.
All designed with a distinctly elegant eye for contemporary luxury and ergonomic efficiency, the XC90 isn't just a comfortable and safe drive for you, but for everyone on the road.
Volvo’s journey towards becoming the leaders of automotive safety could not have happened without the astute vision of its founders, Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson:
"Cars are driven by people. The guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo, therefore, is – and must remain – safety"
Volvo's safety heritage
Since then, Volvo has patented numerous, life-saving safety technologies and pioneered safety innovations that became industry benchmarks. The most notable of which is the three-point seatbelt, a patent that Volvo gave away for the betterment of all.
Drive with confidence
The Swedes are masters of post-modern design, seamlessly marrying human-centric aesthetic with technological advancements that is years ahead of the competition – from the strong shelter of Volvo’s strong safety cage to the plethora of active safety technologies that protects you during your most vulnerable moments – these passive and active systems gives you the assurance and confidence you need when driving your Volvo.
Our promise towards your safety
Our vision is that by the year 2020, no one should be killed or seriously injured driving a new Volvo car. Protecting and caring for people is at the heart of our philosophy and our methods are unique and far-reaching, combining exhaustive research, computer simulations and thousands of crash tests with data from real-life collisions to make us world leaders in safety.
Safer, more comfortable driving
Every journey is effortless with Adaptive Cruise Control, which automatically maintains a safe distance from the vehicle in front. At speeds below 50 km/h our Pilot Assist technology works alongside this to help you stay in lane with gentle steering inputs.
With 360° Surround View technology you get a bird’s-eye view of your car and its surroundings so you can see obstacles all around you. It makes parking and manoeuvring in tight spaces simple.
If you are getting drowsy or inattentive at the wheel, Driver Alert Control will alert you and prompt you to take a break. The Rest Stop Guidance function can even tell you where it’s safe to stop.
Lighting the way ahead
To give you the best view, Active High Beam Control allows you to drive with high beam on all the time, without dazzling others. It detects road users ahead of you and automatically shades the part of the high beam that would dazzle them. You get optimal light and safety is improved for everyone.
Confident lane changing
You can change lanes with the confidence that it’s safe to do so with our Blind Spot Information System. It uses radar sensors to alert you to traffic around the vehicle.
Keeping you on track
To keep your car safely on course, our Lane Keeping Aid senses if you start to leave your lane unintentionally and gently steers you back on track.
