The tested model of Volvo XC90 was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in September 2015. This ANCAP safety rating applies to diesel variants.
Dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (inflatable curtain for all three rows) and a driver knee airbag are standard. Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Lane Support Systems are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to all seats.
Euro NCAP awarded the European XC90 full marks for Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) but the Australasian model currently lacks the speed limit data and speed limiter functions of this system.
