The new Volvo XC90 has scored five stars in the latest Euro NCAP tests.
It scored 97% for adult occupancy, 87% child occupancy, 72% for pedestrian protection and 100% for safety assist.
It is the first car to score 100% for safety assist, which is thanks to the XC90’s AEB (Autonomous Emergency Braking) system which brought the car to a complete halt in the all of the two Euro NCAP Autonomous Emergency Braking tests AEB City & AEB Interurban.
This compares to the new Audi Q7 which was recently tested and scored an overall five stars, broken down into 94% for adult occupancy, 88% child occupancy, 70% for pedestrian protection and 76% for safety assist.
This is good news for Volvo, who is working toward their Vision 2020 to deliver cars in which no one is seriously injured or killed by the year 2020.Published 2 September 2015
