IIHS Safety Awards- 2016 XC90, S80, S60, V60, and XC60 IIHS Top Safety Pick + Award Winners
In a testament to Volvo's longtime commitment to passenger protection, The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the XC90, S80, S60, V60 and XC60 its 2016 Top Safety Pick+ Award – the most among any luxury car company. Every Volvo model tested by IIHS in the last year has received the Top Safety Pick+ Award, the highest possible award for safety in the United States.
To earn Top Safety Pick, a vehicle must pass a series of crashworthiness evaluations, including the small overlap front test - a real-life scenario that replicated what happens when the front corner of a vehicle strikes a another vehicle or object. “Small overlap collisions a high speeds are often very severe” noted Adam Kopstein, safety and compliance manager for Volvo Cars of North America. “For decades, Volvo’s research testing has addressed these crash scenarios because out commitment to safety is at the core of our values.”
Volvo’s Vision 2020 is that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo by the year 2020, a guiding principle behind the company’s engineering, development and operating philosophy, which is focused on safety, improving the environment and reducing traffic congestion in major metropolitan areas. This vision has resulted in a new, ultra-efficient engine strategy, world-leading advancements in autonomous and semi-autonomous drive and an unparalleled safety benchmark for the automotive industry.
Volvo’s recognition as the luxury automaker with the most IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus awards is another milestone in the journey toward that vision.
