The Volvo XC90 SUV has received the 2015 Euro NCAP Best in Class award for both Large Off-Road and Overall Performance categories.
The XC90 achieved overall top performance in the 2015 Euro NCAP ratings, scoring 100 per cent in the Safety Assist category, and 97 per cent in adult occupant protection.
Jan Ivarsson, Acting Director, Volvo Cars Safety Centre said; “We are always happy to receive further recognition for the work we do. The XC90 embodies everything that Volvo Cars stands for, and this is further proof of our continuing leadership in the field of both active and passive safety systems. Our vision is that by 2020 no-one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car. With the latest safety and semi-autonomous drive functionalities in the XC90, we are well on our way to fulfilling that vision.”
Sales of the XC90 continue to outpace production capacity, with 2015 seeing overall Volvo sales reach an all-time high, with more than 503,000 cars sold.
