Volvo XC90 Earns 2023 Top Safety Pick+ Award From IIHS
The Volvo XC90 midsize SUV has earned a 2023 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This is after the IIHS strengthened the requirements for its Top Safety Pick (TSP) and Top Safety Pick+ (TSP+) awards.
The new requirements are tougher, demanding better side crash protection, improved pedestrian crash prevention systems, and elimination of subpar headlights from the field of qualifying vehicles.
Volvo Cars had made a pledge that no one should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo car. And as such, the company has put safety at the centre of all that it does. “The Volvo XC90 continues to prove, year after year, that it is among the safest vehicles on the road,” said Åsa Haglund, head of Volvo Cars Safety Centre.
The biggest change to the criteria comes with the replacement of the original IIHS side crash test. The updated test involves 82% more energy and requires vehicles to earn an “acceptable” or “good” rating to qualify for TSP, while a “good” rating is required for the TSP+. Both the mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid (Recharge) versions of the XC90 earned a TSP+ award.
In addition to award-winning safety, the XC90 Recharge offers up to 77 kilometres* (NEDC) of all-electric driving in Pure mode. Volvo Cars has made sustainability as important as safety and has announced plans to sell only fully electric vehicles by 2030 and aims to become carbon neutral by 2040.
To celebrate this achievement in safety rating, Volvo Car Malaysia is offering, for a limited time, the Volvo XC90 B5 Ultimate Mild-Hybrid and the Volvo XC90 Recharge T8 Plug-In Hybrid with complimentary 5-year service package (VSA5+). VSA5+, also known as the “Volvo Service Agreement 5 Plus”, is a 5-year comprehensive car service package from Volvo Cars that covers the first 5 car services, including wear and tear items that may need to be replaced. This offer is valid for bookings made between 1 and 31 March 2023.
Other than the Volvo XC90, Volvo Car Malaysia is also offering the VSA5+ for its Volvo S60, Volvo S90, Volvo V60, Volvo XC60 and Volvo XC40 B5 models. Furthermore, those who book the Volvo XC40 Recharge Pure Electric will receive a complimentary wall box voucher worth RM7,000. These offers are also only valid from 1 – 31 March 2023.
