Volvo is renowned for making cars which are some of the safest in the industry, and the marque isn't just going to rest on its laurels. As soon as it has shown us the all new XC90 - its best-selling seven-seater SUV, it released a crash test video that demonstrates just how strong (or how safe) the new car is.
The XC90's safety cage is reportedly constructed out of hot-formed boron steel - the strongest type of steel currently used in the industry. And the result is nothing short of impressive. As shown in the clip, the new XC90 passes three unique tests with flying colours - a frontal offset crash test at 64km/h, a side impact crash test at 55km/h and a rollover crash test at 48km/h.
Expectedly, the new car also features an array of safety features, including two world firsts - run-off road protection and auto brake at road intersections.
