The Volvo's XC line was considered the safest model many times before
The safety of the Volvo XC90 is due to the car being equipped with a range of technologies for detecting collisions and early warning for the driver. One of them has the AEB auto-braking technology. This system will automatically brake the car when it detects the likelihood of a collision.
The AEB has been a standard feature on many new models such as Volkswagen Golf or Mercedes-Benz models. However, the new Volvo XC90 is the first car to be integrated with this technology.
In addition, there is another Volvo model that is recognized for its safety, the XC60. In the year 2017, Volvo XC60 is the safest car in Europe, based on the Euro NCAP.
