XC90 and XC90 Recharge named IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award Winners

As part of Volvo’s commitment to safety and their vision that no one should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo car they continue to put safety at the forefront of what they do. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have strengthened its requirements for Top Safety Pick (TSP) and Top Safety Pick+ (TSP+) awards.

The new requirements demand better side crash protection, improved pedestrian crash prevention systems, and the elimination of subpar headlights from qualifying vehicles and that a score of acceptable or good to earn TSP and good for TSP+.

As a result only 48 vehicles in total qualify for the 2023 IIHS Awards, 28 earning TCP+ and the remaining 20 earning TCP. Both the Volvo XC90 mild hybrid and the XC90 Recharge plug in hybrid earned the TCP+ award

“The number of winners is smaller this year because we’re challenging automakers to build on the safety gains they’ve already achieved,” said IIHS President David Harkey. “These models are true standouts in both crashworthiness and crash prevention.”

Head of Volvo Cars Safety Centre, Åsa Haglund, said “The Volvo XC90 continues to prove, year after year, that it is among the safest vehicles on the road”.
