A tradition: Volvo gets the highest safety certification in all its cars

Volvo S90, S90 Recharge and V90 Cross Country 2022 cars, luxury models from the Swedish automaker, has been received Top Safety Pick + (TSP+) awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). In total, there were 13 company cars (10 in February and 3 now), which received the highest safety score of the American corporation.

A pioneer in security

With that, Volvo Cars became the IIHS’ most awarded brand in 2022, surpassing other automakers and following a long-standing tradition. We are talking about a company that, for example, introduced life-saving technologies such as the three-point seat belt and the impact protection system.

Just to emphasize this point, in the United States, Volvo equips all of its vehicles with a number of standard safety features that are offered as options on similarly priced competing models. Regardless of cost, all versions of the Swedish brand have automatic emergency braking, pedestrian (and cyclist) detection, as well as forward collision warning.

And no wonder, when we reviewed the first 100% electric car sold by Volvo in Brazil, one of the most important things was the safety of the XC40 Recharge. As demonstrated by the Blind Spot Alert System (BLIS) and City Safety, which detects pedestrians, cyclists and large animals and can apply the brakes and even steer to avoid or minimize a collision.

To qualify for the 2022 IIHS awards, vehicles must score high in the US agency’s six crashworthiness tests. Including tests with driver’s side small front overlap, passenger side small front overlap, medium front overlap, natural side, power roof and head section.

Vehicles must also be equipped with a frontal collision avoidance system that achieves a high or higher rating in the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian ratings.

Volvo car safety included

The TSP+ award is equivalent to the top level on the IIHS, where good or acceptable headlights should be standard on all trims. Along these lines, three Volvo cars met all the “plus” criteria.

Each comes with a new standard front-collision prevention system that earns a top score in the IIHS vehicle-by-vehicle evaluation — and a top rating in the vehicle’s pedestrian test. Regardless of the trim, all three cars come with LED reflectors with high beam assist and cornering correction that gets an acceptable rating.
