The new technologies will take the company a significant step closer to its vision that 'no one will be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020'.

The standard safety package on the all-wheel drive, seven-seat premium SUV will include two world-first safety technologies: a run-off road protection package and auto-brake at intersection capability. These innovations will form part of a suite of safety features that will make the all-new XC90 one of the safest cars ever made.

"Our starting point on safety is the same today as it was 87 years ago: real-life situations," said Dr Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research and Development of Volvo Car Group. 

"We study data. We crunch numbers. We innovate. The result is one of the safest cars ever made."
