Volvo XC90 and XC90 Recharge Plug-in Hybrid have been named 2023 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ award winners

Finlay Volvo, located in Naas, can now proudly announce that the Volvo XC90 and XC90 Recharge Plug-in Hybrid have been named 2023 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ award winners. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has toughened the requirements for its TOP SAFETY PICK (TSP) and TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) awards, demanding better side crash protection, improved pedestrian crash prevention systems, and the elimination of subpar headlights from the qualifying vehicles. Volvo Cars’ vision of no one being seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo car has put safety at the centre of everything it does.
Åsa Haglund, head of Volvo Cars Safety Centre, stated that "The Volvo XC90 continues to prove, year after year, that it is among the safest vehicles on the road." 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. The XC90 Recharge offers up to 73 kilometers (WLTP) or 35 miles (EPA) of all-electric driving in Pure mode. In addition to award-winning safety, Volvo Cars has made sustainability as important as safety, and has announced plans to sell only fully electric vehicles by 2030 and to aim to become carbon neutral by 2040.
It is important to note that the range may vary in real-world conditions, and vehicle specifications and customer offers may differ from one country to another.
