Fleet Safety Initiative Award Goes to XC90
The Volvo XC90 has won the Fleet Safety Initiative Award at the prestigious 2015 ACFO Awards. The ACFO (Association of Car Fleet Operators) Awards, which celebrate the best in the fleet sector, commended the XC90’s innovative and ground-breaking safety technologies.
These include two world firsts: run-off road protection, which helps to reduce the likelihood of spinal injuries if your vehicle leaves the road, and automatic emergency braking at an intersection. Judges also praised the XC90’s suite of standard safety aids, including City Safety, which features pedestrian and cyclist detection, and front collision warning with fully automatic braking.
In the same week, the XC90 was declared Luxury SUV of the Year in the 2015 Professional Driver QSI Awards. These awards honour the best in the chauffeur and private hire sectors, and the XC90 D5 Inscription was voted the finest upmarket SUV for its combination of an efficient four-cylinder diesel engine, the ability to seat seven people, and its smooth and refined motorway manners.
The all-new XC90 is Volvo’s most technologically advanced and luxurious car ever. It is available with a range of efficient diesel and petrol Drive-E powertrains, while the plug-in hybrid T8 Twin Engine version has CO2emissions of just 49g/km.
Its revolutionary features include Volvo’s CleanZone air filtration system, and its spacious seven-seat interior combines contemporary Swedish design with exemplary quality.
