Celebrate Volvo XC90 and XC90 Recharge Plug-In Hybrid Win at 2023 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Award with Limited-time Offer

KUALA LUMPUR, 1 March 2023 – The Volvo XC90 midsize luxury SUV has earned a 2023 TOP SAFETY PICK+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This announcement comes after the IIHS strengthened the requirements for its TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) and TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) awards.

The new, tougher, criteria demand better side crash protection, improved pedestrian crash prevention systems, and the elimination of subpar headlights from the field of qualifying vehicles. 

As part of Volvo Cars’ vision that no one should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo car, the company has put safety at the center of everything 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 percent 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 mild hybrid (XC90) and plug-in hybrid (XC90 Recharge) versions of the XC90 earned a TSP+ award. In addition to award-winning safety, the XC90 Recharge offers up to 77 kilometres (NEDC) or 35 miles (EPA) 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 to aims to become carbon neutral by 2040.

Valid for a limited time, customers interested in the Volvo XC90 B5 Ultimate Mild-Hybrid or the Volvo XC90 Recharge T8 Plug-In Hybrid should place their bookings from 1 March until 31 March 2023 and enjoy a complimentary five-year service package (VSA5+). VSA5+, otherwise known as the ‘Volvo Service Agreement 5 Plus’, is a 5 year comprehensive car service package from Volvo Cars that covers the first five car services including Wear and Tear items that may need to be replaced.
