Volvo’s XC90 has an immensely strong body that provides safe, all-round protection for its passengers. Deformation and intrusion proved minimal, while those in the front risked slight chest injuries from forces acting on their seat belts. The child restraints worked well, too, and met all safety performance requirements. The XC90 is also unusual in that it can accommodate ISOFIX seats of whatever size. Finally, for a big vehicle it gave fair protection to pedestrians.
