The Foundation.
    
 
Safety cage

To help keep the occupant space intact in the event of a crash, our cars are made stronger in every sense. The complete safety cage around the occupants is made from hot-formed high-strength steel and is designed for maximum occupant protection in all types of crash scenarios.


 
Airbags

Volvo cars contain a range of airbags designed to help protect the occupants in the event of a crash. They include the driver airbag, located in the steering wheel, the front passenger airbag, located in the dashboard, side airbags, introduced by Volvo in 1994, and inflatable curtains, another Volvo first from 1998.

    
 
Safety belts

Did you know that the three-point safety belt was first put into production by Volvo Cars? It was designed by Volvo engineer Nils Bohlin in 1959, years before it would become available in most cars. Volvo also pioneered safety belts in the rear seat and a three-point safety belt on the rear seat mid-position. The rear safety belts are vital for the passengers using them, but also for the occupants in front. The three-point safety belt is one of the most important inventions for mankind and it is the most important protective safety feature in the car.

 
Seats

Our current generation seats are made of different grades of steel, to ensure safety and comfort. The energy-absorbing functionality between the seat and seat frame helps to reduce spine injuries. It deforms mechanically to cushion the vertical forces that can arise when the car encounters a hard landing. This is an intergral part of of our Run-off Road Protection feature.




 



The Features.
 

   
  
 
 
   

City Safety

City Safety helps to protect people inside and outside the car by spotting potential danger and helping you avoid it. At speed differences up to 50 km/h between the car and the vehicle in front, a collision can be avoided if the driver does not react.

 


  
   

Active and connected safety systems

Our new safety mitigate crashes, improve driver alertness, communicate speed limits and even communicate directly to other cars when there is a danger on the road ahead with our Slippery Road and Hazard Light Alert features.
