IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT, YOU ARE PREPARED.
In a collision, a remarkable system of Volvo defensive measures takes over.
The three-point seat belt holds fast and the standard driver-side air bag deploys. Upon frontal impact, the engine mounts are designed to release, pushing the engine and transmission down under the chassis rather than into the cab.
The energy-absorbing steering column collapses, and special knee panels absorb impact.
Door hinges are designed to stay closed during a collision but can still be opened afterward.
The central locking unit will automatically unlock after an accident.
