Since the first Volvo vehicle was introduced back in the late 1920s, the brand has carried with it a stellar reputation for safety technology. If you are looking for a vehicle that offers unsurpassed peace of mind, a new Volvo with the latest safety features is the best choice available. Read this article to trace the history of Volvo’s dedication to safety design and Volvo’s current safety promise.
The First Manufacturer to Make a Three-Point Safety Belt
Now ubiquitous in the automotive world, the three-point safety belt was first built by Volvo in the 1950s. When it comes to safety belt design, the three-point safety belt is the golden standard in safety because it offers the best possible fit over a vehicle occupant and the best protection in the event of a collision.
In the 1960s, Volvo was the first automaker to use padded dashboards. This safety features offers important protection to vehicle occupants in the event that the force of a collision ejects a passenger from his or her seat.
Energy-Diverting Crumple Zones
Also in the 1960s, Volvo was one of the first automotive manufacturers to make its new vehicles with crumple zones in the front and rear. During a collision, these crumple zones distribute the force of a collision to minimize passenger injuries.
Today, Volvo’s long-term vision is that by 2020, no one will be killed or seriously injured inside a new Volvo. To achieve this, Volvo must focus both on active safety features that reduce the likelihood of a collision and passive safety features that protect occupants in the event of a collision. One new active Volvo safety feature that has received a lot of praise lately is City Safety. This feature is able to detect an imminent collision and apply the brakes to ensure that damage is minimized or avoided entirely.

There’s no doubt that today’s crossovers function as excellent family vehicles. But if you also want your next family crossover to be fun to drive, luxurious, and extremely safe, the 2013 Volvo XC90 deserves a closer look. Read on to see what the new Volvo XC90 offers.
Comfortable, Upscale Interior
The interior of the Volvo XC90 boasts easily the best seats in its segment. They are made of soft, supportive leather and feature generous side bolstering, which allows for driver comfort and stability during cornering. Even the button layout is impressive in the 2013 Volvo XC90. With intuitively placed and clearly defined controls, the 2013 Volvo XC90 is easy to use and nowhere near as complicated as what you would find in other luxury crossover SUVs. With room for up to seven passengers in the XC90, Volvo made entering and exiting the vehicle as easy as possible.
Available All-Wheel Drive
For drivers that want to feel the utmost confidence on the road, an all-wheel drive Volvo XC90 is the ideal vehicle. Especially in Sarasota, where rainstorms arrive quickly and leave the streets slippery and wet, all-wheel drive ensures optimal traction and safety.
Exciting Driving Dynamics
If you want to enjoy the ride, there’s nothing like a 2013 Volvo XC90. Its sophisticated suspension delivers responsive handling, making you feel less like you’re in a crossover SUV and more like you’re in a luxury coupe or sedan.
If a more athletic Volvo XC90 appeals to you, the R-Design is the model to go for. Among other things, the XC90 R-Design comes with 19-inch wheels, sports-tuned steering, sports-tuned suspension, and a sporty steering wheel. The Nivomat self-leveling suspension that comes with the 2013 Volvo XC90 R-Design features self-leveling shock absorbers, which improves aerodynamics and enhances vehicle control even when you’re carrying a heavy load.
