The 2010 Volvo XC90 is one of the safest vehicles in its class, aided by a wide selection of modern safety features and Volvo’s bulletproof reputation.

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the XC90 is a Top Safety Pick, even with this year's tighter requirements, and it earns five-star crash ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Standard safety gear includes front side and side curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake distribution and brake assist, stability and traction control, roll-stability control, a rollover protection system, and finally, rear park assist. Edmunds lists the safety options on the Volvo XC90 as including "power child safety locks, adaptive headlights and Volvo's Blind Spot Information System."

Edmunds also praises "the center position in the second row [which] has an integrated child booster cushion that slides forward, allowing easier access to children in the back," and notes the Blind Spot Information System. Known as BLIS, "this bit of technology monitors vehicles entering the XC90's blind spots and warns the driver via indicator lights."

Finally, Kelley Blue Book points out that "Volvo takes particular pride in the XC90's reinforced roof design, which can provide an added measure of security in the event of a rollover accident."

Conclusion

The 2010 Volvo XC90 provides a safe journey, with exceptional crash-test scores and some innovative features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
