And in order to increase the space for lengthy items, simply lower the back of the front seat for the passenger. Loads are secured with the help of lugs located in the luggage compartment floor, which is the safest. Balance and harmony are complemented by a sense of security. The S80 is traditionally high for Volvo.

Airbags for the driver and passenger record the force of the collision and appropriately regulate the filling with gas: with a strong impact, the pressure will be high, with a weak impact, low. If airbags are not needed, only seat belt pretensioners are triggered. An additional airbag built into the center rear armrest ensures that the seat belt is correctly positioned on the baby’s body (optional). For young children, Volvo child seats are available with the ISOFIX mounting system, mounted against the direction of travel in the side rear seats and also in the front passenger seat with the airbag removed (optional).

All seats are equipped with head restraints and three-point seat belts with pretensioners. In the event of a collision, the seat belt is tensioned for maximum protection. Then, the front seat belt tension is slightly reduced so that the person sitting on the seat is locked in an optimal way. The unique system of protection against side impact SIPS, distributes the forces arising from the impact of a large part of the car body to reduce the physical loads acting on people in the cabin.
