New Volvo XC90 gets five-star safety score in the U.S.
In what should be a sign of an imminent five-star ANCAP safety score in Australia, the all-new Volvo XC90 SUV has just been given maximum points following U.S. crash tests.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the seven-seat Volvo XC90 a Top Safety Pick+ rating, which is only given to cars that achieve full scores in all crashworthiness and front crash prevention tests and which excel in both preventive and protective safety performance.
Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO of Volvo Cars of North America, welcomes the result.
“Every Volvo currently rated by IIHS has earned a Top Safety Pick+, we are the only automaker that can claim that proud distinction,”
“The XC90 is the next step in our Vision 2020, which states that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by the year 2020.”
The Volvo XC90 was also awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating last week.
Priced from $89,950, the new Volvo XC90 is in Australian Volvo dealerships now. We will keep you updated with information in regards to the Volvo XC90’s official Australian safety rating.
