Maybe you've heard that Volvo was the first to design and implement the first three-point safety belt, the first booster cushion for children, and the Side Impact System (SIPS). These innovations have saved countless lives and prevent injuries for entire generations of drivers and passengers. However, is Volvo still the safest brand that is on the market today?

Discover if Volvo is the safest car and Volvo's commitment to safety.


The New York Post described the 2017 XC60 as the "safest car in the world" for earning five stars from the Euro NCAP ratings, having a nearly perfect score. The Telegraph named Volvo "Britain's safest car...with no road deaths in 16 years." With mentions like these, it may be safe to say that Volvo has earned the title of safest car in a historical sense.

While Volvo's contributions to safety are undeniable, the field of automotive safety is one that is always changing and highly competitive. The new Volvo S60 and V60 recently made the list for the Euro NCAP safest family cars for their standard safety features, but whether Volvo is the undisputable safest car is debated by many.

What isn’t up for debate is Volvo's mission to make sure that there are no injuries or deaths in a new Volvo by 2020. Whether or not Volvo is the safest, it is continually striving to be the best and increase the safety of its drivers. What you can count on is Volvo's current status as one of the safest brands that deserves the spotlight.
