Volvo Leads in Safety Once Again

While Volvo has always been known as a leader in automotive innovation, several advanced technologies have come along in the past few years that have put created new avenues to be explored. Volvo has done an excellent job in adapting to, and innovating in these areas, and their first ever compact crossover, the Volvo XC40, has seen the benefits. Earning the IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus award, the Volvo XC40 came out with top marks across the board for crash testing, collision prevention technology, and nighttime visibility.

Crash Tests Prove Excellent Volvo Build Quality

The Volvo XC40 earned “good” marks for head, chest, hip, and lower extremity protection in driver-side head-on overlap crash testing thanks to enhanced crumple zones, a litany of airbags, and high-quality restraints and pretensioning. This is the highest possible mark for such IIHS testing, proving that Volvo build quality is still a hallmark of the legendary luxury brand.

Mitigation Technology Works

In both 15 mph and 25 mph testing, the Volvo XC40 with standard City Safety technology was able to autonomously avoid an accident thanks to automatic emergency braking. This system will also detect pedestrians, cyclists, and a large animals, making it an effective safety device far beyond city limits.

The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is standard, as are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so Hamilton-Wenham drivers can enjoy a technologically advanced cockpit and a safe drive.
