Volvo promises pioneering safety tech for all-new XC90

The new Volvo XC90 SUV, which is due to be revealed in August, will come packed with new safety tech including an advanced park assist package and accident detection

Volvo claims the all-new XC90 SUV – which is due to go on sale later this year – will be one of the safest vehicles ever made. Among the new model’s standard safety systems will be two claimed world-first technologies, including new accident avoidance and junction braking systems.

The expanded safety tech is part the firm’s plan that nobody will die or be seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020.

Key among the XC90′s safety features is a new system for protecting cars which have been forced off the road in accidents – something Volvo claims is a world first.
