Accident Protection

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.
