The XC90 receives highest and first ever 100 percent score in the Safety Assist Category
Volvo XC90 bags full five stars in the 2015 Euro NCAP crash assessment and becomes the first automobile in the world to score full points in Euro NCAP Autonomous Emergency Braking Car to Car rear-end tests (AEB City & AEB Interurban); and this City Safety technology is standard in the XC90.
“This is further proof that with Volvo XC90 we have developed one of the safest cars in the world. In fact we scored one hundred percent in the Safety Assist category. From an industry perspective Volvo Cars remains the leader in car safety innovation and miles ahead of the competition with our standard safety offer,” said Dr Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President, Research & Development at Volvo Car Group.
“We are the first car manufacturer to surpass the criteria that Euro NCAP have applied to the AEB Interurban and City testing procedures. City Safety is one of the most advanced standard crash prevention offers you can find in a modern car. It addresses vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians in certain situations, day and night,” said Martin Magnusson, Principal Engineer at Volvo Car Group.
In the month of May this year, Volvo India launched the second generation XC90 in the country at a price tag of Rs 64.9 lac (Ex-Showroom, Mumbai, pre-Octroi). The SUV is available solely with a diesel powertrain and gets two trims in India - Momentum Luxury and Inscription Luxury. The bookings started since the launch while deliveries will commence from this month.
