Due to an astonishing array of driver assists , this Volvo very much adheres to the company ' s passion for driving safety . There are standard parking assists , but you also have the advantage of such features as anti-lock brakes , stability control ( which assists you when you lose control of the steering ), loads and loads of airbags – even KNEE airbags – and anti-whiplash head restraints . If you are buying a Volvo because you ' ve heard they are safe , you will definitely not be proven wrong .
I love the XC90 . It manages to continue a tradition of quality , safety and driving enjoyment , whilst adding the latest gadgets designed to make life in your car even more enjoyable . I read that many orders were placed for the latest car without even having seen it ! But it ' s clear now that the faith these customers placed in Volvo was well founded . The XC90 , like Volvo , is a car that can be trusted to deliver .
