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.
