VOLVO SAFETY STANDARDS

VolvoUncompromised Craftmanship

Continually Putting Safety First

Throughout Volvo's history as an automotive manufacturer, meticulous craftsmanship and strict standards of safety remained a central aspect of construction. Never compromising quality, safety, or components to cut costs, Volvo proudly boasts a legacy of impeccable safety standards across all models. Continually innovating to match the evolving times and ever-present dangers of the road and surrounding environment, Volvo strives to surpass expectations and define the industry standard for safety. From advanced mechanical engineering to innovative and advanced technological systems, Volvo continually provides drivers with uncompromised safety in every model.

Volvo-Exclusive Safety Technology: IntelliSafe

Volvo technicians, back in 1959, invented and implemented the first three-point safety belt. Since then, Volvo innovations have expanded to include features such as "soft landing" - a pedestrian airbag to minimize injuries for all parties in the event of an incident. Furthermore, Volvo offers enhanced safety for children (having originally developed the first rear-facing child seat), and protection in any situation with electronically retractable safety belts.

Driver Assistance and Collision Avoidance Systems

With City Safety technology, Volvo models offer features such as adaptive cruise control for stress-free navigation of dense traffic, bird's eye view to assist in navigating tight parking spaces or narrow alleyways, staying alert, active high-beam control, a blind spot information and lane keeping aid to further amend safety.




City Safety Technology

Via active detection systems, drivers receive their Volvo's assistance in detecting and avoiding cyclists and pedestrians, in addition to features such as intersection braking technology to assist in avoiding common "fender bender" accidents.

Volvo Crash Test Rating vs. The Competition

Volvo's 2018 models regularly surpass the competition - receiving a "Superior" rating by IIHS for crash avoidance and mitigation on the 2018 Volvo XC60, XC90, V60, S90, and more. All IIHS-rated 2018 model year Volvo vehicles received superior ratings, with many receiving the "IIHS Top Safety Pick" accolade for their exceptional safety standards. Few comparable manufacturers are capable of boasting that every model in their lineup meets or exceeds the most rigorous safety standards.

Standard Safety Features and Optional Add-Ons

With all but two models equipped with forward-collision warning as standard (excluding the S60 and V60), and all models equipped with autobraking at city speeds, drivers receive the utmost assurance of safety with their selected Volvo model. Additional features include:

  • Lane Departure Warning
    • Standard on all models except the S60 and V60 (optional)
  • Lane Keeping Assist
    • Standard on all models except the S60 and V60 (optional)
  • Blind Spot Warning
    • Optional on all except the XC90, V90 and S90 (standard)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
    • Optional on all except the XC90, V90 and S90

While various Volvo technological safety features are optional on select models, all Volvo models are crafted with precision, and formed using high-strength materials to ensure the very structure of the vehicle remains steadfast in the event of an accident. While these various systems consistently work together to prevent and minimize accidents, Volvo never compromises a vehicle's structural integrity under any circumstance. Imbuing every model with the greatest degree of preventative measures possible, in conjunction with precision engineering to ensure maximal mechanical fortitude, every Volvo comes equipped with the utmost assurance of safety as standard.
