Volvo has a long-running reputation for producing sleek, feature-rich autos that are just as high-performing as they are fun to drive. However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently recognized Volvo for its stellar achievements in safety.

East Hartford drivers looking for cars, crossovers, or SUVs that boast cutting-edge safety technologies and advanced crash mitigation features will find what they're searching for in Volvo models. At Gengras Volvo Cars East Hartford, we're excited to report that Volvo earned no fewer than 13 IIHS safety awards in 2022.

The Volvo C40 Recharge Received the Highest Safety Rating

Across all vehicles tested by the IIHS, the Volvo C40 Recharge received the highest safety rating. This compact SUV is fully electric and equipped with innovative technologies that include Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, and an advanced Blind Spot Information System among other things.

Multiple Volvo Models Won the IIHS Top Safety Pick Award

The IIHS awarded multiple Volvo models with the Top Pick Safety Award in 2022. These include the Volvo XC60, the Volvo XC90, the Volvo V90 Cross Country, and the Volvo XC90 Recharge. Volvo can deliver if you're looking for a large or mid-size luxury vehicle in East Hartford that will safely get you everywhere you need to go.

What are the Criteria for Qualifying as an IIHS Top Safety Pick?

The IIHS considers both design elements for crash mitigation and the range of safety technologies that each model has available. To qualify as a top safety pick, vehicles must have good scores in all tests measuring:

  • Head restraint
  • Driver-side and passenger-side small overlap front
  • Roof strength
  • Original side
  • Moderate overlap front

All models must additionally have acceptable headlight scores and superior or advanced crash prevention for vehicle-to-pedestrian and vehicle-to-vehicle collisions.
