All-new Volvo XC90 is going to be one of the safest SUVs on the market

Volvo has been teasing the all-new XC90 for some time along with details on its top of the range 400bhp twin-charged PHEV.

Volvo is well known for its safety and their big vision that no one will be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020.

Moving closer to that big vision, the all-new XC90 will be packed with some amazing safety features and innovative solutions.

The new model has five times more Ultra High Strength Steel (boron steel) than first-generation XC90 and there are also some industry first solutions as well.

The new IntelliSafe support technologies include an extended Park Assist Pilot, which now also offers automatic reversing into a parking bay as well as entering and exiting a parallel parking spot, along with Cross Traffic Alert, which covers the driver’s back when reversing out of a parking space. A 360° Surround View gives the driver a bird’s-eye view, seen from a point above the car.

There are also world first number solutions like Run-off road protection and Auto brake at intersections.

Other notable safety features include: Pre-crash protection in rear impacts, Groundbreaking rollover prevention and protection, City Safety auto braking functions, Extended Road Sign Information, The blind spot information system and Queue Assist.

The all-new Volvo XC90 will be unveiled next month. For full details about all the above mentioned safety highlights check out the press releases below.
