16 years without a death in the Volvo XC90

In Volvo, they definitely have a reason to draw: Today in the UK there are statistics that reveal that around 54,000 HS90s have been sold on the island since 2002. A good piece, right? More important, however, is that none of these Swedish SUVs have a dead person! Independent British laboratory Thatcham Research reveals that this is the safest model tested by her in history. In fact, another SUV, the second generation of the Audi Q7, has managed to score a similar record without fatalities, but it is on the market for a much shorter time. Experts have analyzed statistical information from the police and insurance companies - as the information gathered reveals that there is no single driver or traveler in the HS90 for the period 2004-2017 (for the two previous years). Thatcham Research is far from being the only organization that confirms the success of the HS90: According to the US Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (SUI), the SUV is among the nine models in the US that do not have a dead person for 2009-2012. The success of the XC90 is due to the combination of assisted systems (including last generation autonomous braking) for active safety, as well as the exceptionally"hard"body that guarantees peak passive safety.
